I'm going to do a 4-day school week this year (with SS, Science or Spanish each with a day) as we often hang out with Dad on Fridays (he works from home) or travel with him one day a week. I also thought a free day would be good for me to plan, catch up on housework, or do Field Trips. I know to some of you it might look a little structured with such young ones, but they eat up this time, especially the time I spend one-on-one with each of them.
I need help, though, in juggling all 4 of them. I'd like to know what some of you do who have lots of kids, especially kids close in age. I'm sure I'll really need advice in about 3 years when my baby is ready for school as I will be I guess teaching her all her own curriculum. At least with my 3 so close in age, they can learn a lot of the same things in Science, SS, etc. Would welcome any advice you have!
