Hi everyone! Today I am doing a day in the life blog. I thought it would be fun to show you what we do everyday! I previously did a Homeschool Routine and Schedule post, but since then, our routine has changed! The school has been sending assignments, and they also have to video chat with their teacher every morning.
So, a little bit about my family – I have two girls, Allie, 8, and Ashley, 5. My husband is still going to work these days, so it’s just me and the girls everyday.
Let’s get on with our day!
7:30 Wake up and COFFEE!
This particular day I was up before the girls, so I had a bit of quiet time while I enjoyed my coffee. I use the Starbucks Blonde Roast and their Caramel Macchiato creamer.
8:00 The girls woke up around 8, so I made them cinnamon toast, and they had some berries and yogurt to go with it.
While they were eating, I made my bed, cleaned up a little bit, and threw a load of laundry in the washer.
I make my bed, and all of the beds, every morning. I like to keep a clean and tidy house.
After breakfast, the girls brushed their teeth, got dressed, and brushed their hair.
At 9:00, Ashley has to get on Google Meet with her Kindergarten class for their morning meeting to go over the assignments.
While she was doing that, I gave our dog Mollie a bath. She is a 10 year old maltese. She lives inside the house, so a bath every week is a must! I also brush her.
She doesn’t like it, though.
After I bathed and brushed her, it was back to her chair to look out the window at the cows!
By this time, Ashley was done with her morning meeting with her class. Now it is Allie’s turn for her meeting at 9:30 with her third grade class.
While she was on her chat, I took a quick shower and got ready for the day.
I planned on making chili for dinner that night, so I had to get that going in the crockpot. Here is the recipe if you want to make it!
At 10:00, the girls start doing their assignments for the day. They both have Reading/Writing, Math, Science, Social Studies, and GT assignments.
We turned our table in the dining room into a school table, since the one in the playroom wasn’t big enough. Who uses a formal dining room anyway?
School usually takes a few hours, so we have lunch right after they’re done.
My girls LOVE avocado toast, so we had that.
I spread some avocado on toasted bread, and topped it with a little garlic salt and some turkey. They also had some cherry tomatoes and carrots to go with it.
I also had avocado toast and veggies, but I like mine with the Trader Joe’s Everything But the Bagel Seasoning. So good.
It was such a pretty day outside, so the girls rode their scooters, jumped on the trampoline, and we did a little activity using painters tape and sidewalk chalk.
These came out really cool and kept them busy for awhile!
We came back inside around 2:30 and wanted to make some frosted sugar cookies, so we made them into Easter shapes and decorated them. Delish. I posted the recipe for these last week, so check it out here if you want to make them!
They usually have an afternoon snack at this time, so I made them a smoothie and they had some goldfish crackers to go with it.
I used frozen bananas, strawberries, blueberries, yogurt, and milk to make the smoothie. They love it.
For me, an iced coffee. I’m dragging at this point!

This is free time for the girls. They usually play board games, barbies, LOL dolls, or color during this time.
I usually use this time for chores, so I folded the laundry, unloaded the dishwasher, and cleaned the toilets and bathrooms. If I don’t have any chores to do, I will work on my blog, read, or play with the girls.
I start making dinner at this time, so since the crockpot was making the chili, all I had to do was make some cornbread to go with it!
The girls love to help me make dinner and set the table.
Dinner is ready! Can’t wait to eat it!
After dinner we usually have family movie or game night, and the girls love to have a “sleepover” in their playroom.
So that is it for our day! It isn’t extremely eventful because we can’t go anywhere, but we try to keep busy.
I hope you are all doing well and enjoyed this day in the life blog!
thanks for reading!
