The Rules

  1. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.  
  2. You shall love your neighbor as yourself. Any rules following this rule are corollaries to it.
  3. All students must be at the kitchen table at 8:30 sharp for Morning Basket.
  4. You may eat and drink during  Morning Basket, but the food must be prepared ahead of time - no jumping out of your seat to prepare food.  There will always be a pot of tea available at this time.
  5. Agent004 does after breakfast kitchen cleanup daily immediately after Morning Basket.  Please hand wash the teapot, clear dishes to the sink, wipe the table, and spot clean the floor and counters as needed.
  6. There is no grazing for food through the day.  Breakfast is before or during Morning Basket, lunch is after morning work, snack is at 3:00 pm, and dinner is after Papa’s return.  If you need food outside of these times, please ask Mama first.
  7. Agent 007 will clean the kitchen after lunch.   Please clear dishes to the sink, wipe the table and spot clean the floor and counters as needed.
  8. Please do not interrupt your siblings’ lessons, either when they are working independently or with Mama.
  9. If you have a question regarding work assigned as “independent,” first see if Mama is available to field questions. If she is not, please move on to the next assignment on your schedule and ask for clarification when Mama is free.  When she is doing housework you may ask her as many questions as you need, but please do not interrupt a sibling’s lesson.
  10. With the exception of instrumental music by the composer of the month, there will be no music during the school day.
  11. There will be no screen use during the school day unless explicitly assigned for a course.
  12. A 45 minute recess follows lunch each day that we are home (most  Mondays and Thursdays as well as some Tuesdays and Fridays). If weather allows, we will be outside.  There is no screen use during this time.
  13. During any lesson, Mama will only remind you to focus twice.  Upon the third incidence of inattention, the lesson will be tabled until the end of the school day at Mama’s convenience.  This will usually be during that evening’s free or screen time.
