    We are moving to CM lessons for family subjects (History/Bible and Enrichment Studies) this year.  I know that lessons are generally done in the morning with handicrafts, etc in the afternoon, but our other activities (co-op, piano, tennis) are in the morning.  I wish we could have all unhurried open mornings, but I don’t think that is possible (yet).  Have any of you tried lessons in the afternoon?  How did it go?  I would appreciate any advice as we are somewhat new to this approach.

    I have done a bit of both over the years (17 years homeschooling), but my thought would be, Do what works for your family, even if it does not exactly look like a “typical” CM schedule. Don’t rush the feast. : )

    Sallie Borrink wrote a brief piece on this that I think is really good.

    Thank you for the reply and the link!  Two of my three kiddos are “late-to-bed” types, and have big creative ideas as soon as hatthey wake up that usually don’t include schoolwork!  I feel like I have the freedom to try some of both this year, and we’ll see how it goes.  Thanks again!

    We do! It started because it was the quietest time of day from baby/toddler naps but we have continued because I prefer to get all my errands done in the morning because there are usually less crowds.

    We always start after lunch with tea and read alouds as a family.

    I love the tea and read-alouds idea!
