This past weekend, Jason decided it was time to make some changes. I was waiting to move our bed back into our room from the living room until we had finished painting and redecorating our bedroom. I had the bedroom mostly cleaned out just waiting for the paint. However, with me working and doing school, painting the bedroom had been put on the back burner.
This past Saturday, Jason took matters into his own hands and painted my room for me. (I dreaded painting this room. Thank you for helping me Jason even though it was not your idea to paint in the first place. For this I am forever grateful!!!)

As far as the schedule, we redesigned our daily schedule (which I will post later). The kids have their times for each subject so that they know when they are working with mom, how much time they have to finish each subject before it becomes homework, and when their breaks are. While we do leave room for schedule adjustment, we have stuck pretty close to the exact schedule so far, and I have to say that the last 3 days have gone very smoothly. The kids know exactly what is expected of them, and their is no question as to what they should be doing and when because they have a schedule. Hmm...organization! I feel better already.
Here are a few pictures of our new school room:
