Summer or Fall Rule?

Dear Holly,
I am pregnant with my 5th child. My 4 other children go to school next month. My schedule right now is very light, but I have time to get things done around the house. Should I create my rule of life according to my schedule now? Or should I anticipate how things will be once school begins with crazy afternoons of homework and after school activities?

  1. I would being to create a rule of your normal school-year schedule, and then for summer, just leave sections blank and take your breaks.

    I would also begin with only your key basics right now - meals, laundry, weekly clean, prayer time. Then when school comes, add in the homework time and those other needs. But keep your meal times, laundry the same all year round.
