With such a busy schedule between the boys therapies each week and the girls activities, one of the challenges we had to address first with starting a Waldorf inspired curriculum was figuring out a consistent "rhythm in the home" for each day (for a great article written by Nicole at Frontier Dreams called "Rhythm in the Home" click HERE.)
While the schedules vary in some specifics day to day in our homeschool due to pre-set obligations (for ex: two days a week the boys have in-home therapy inthe morning, one day a week in the afternoon), the main anchor points of each day are the same and the kids know what to expect each particular weekday. This rhythm in the home and knowing what comes next in the day to day activities, with activities flowing one into the next and not based on a clock, is one of my favorite components of Waldorf Inspired Homeschooling. It made a huge difference for the positive in our homeschool, in me, and in the kids-- but especially with my twins with special needs.
