We actually haven't had a day yet when we've followed it exactly. There's a lot of things in there that I just adapted from our normal routines, so it hasn't necessarily been a drastic change (such as naptimes). It seems like just getting the kids off on the right foot and doing a few structured activities each day has set the tone for the rest of the day and enabled them to do a lot more "productive" (read here as: not destroying everything in sight) play. Good stuff.

Keep all that scheduling stuff up! I'm telling you I was hard core when mine were your age, and I can see the good effects of that now.
I need to be more hard core again!

The Bible Verses are a great thing to do. It's amazing how much kids can retain.
Good job girly!
