The scheduling and moving on idea (or some form of it- a true Godsend!!) came from Teri Maxwell, in Managers of their Homes. I can't even tell you how much this has changed our day! In the past, we would have deflated, tired kiddos doing school for hours longer than they needed to because they were discouraged, but moving on schedule has encouraged them to keep working diligently to not have homework! It's been wonderful.
The kids have done so, so well this year with BJU distance and a full schedule. Next year we're trying something new altogether to keep it fresh, but I'd say thanks to the Lord, sweet kiddos, and that wonderful book on scheduling, this was our best homeschooling year yet. :)
