    My DS practices piano then watches CNN 10 and either TED ED or reads Nat Geo/something similar. He's working on Big History Project this year so he goes right into that and then math.

    We like CNN 10 too. I like the idea of letting them start with a TED ED video! Thanks.

    We also had an amazing morning routine but with one girl in high school and the other middle school, things are so different. DD14 starts her day on her own, set hers own alarm clock, very independent, knows what she needs to accomplish and how long its going to take. She gets her own breakfast, watches an episode of Friends, and off she goes for the day. DD12 would sleep till noon, so I wake her at 8:45, still sneak in a little cuddle time, and she's ready to start her day by 9:30 at the latest. This girl doesn't eat until lunch....I know I know...it's a bad thing but that's how she's always been. At 9:30, she pulls out her favorite workbook (grammar) and digs in. So we don't have a family routine anymore which is sad. We've all adapted to our own needs and created something that works.

    I should have mentioned that prior to this year, we did start off with CNN, a crash course video and Ted-Ed. This worked well for two years.
