Hi Erin! I use the Exploration Days on Friday too, because of wanting to "match" light and independent Friday's in CTG. (We just finished last Friday! Yea!)mrs_mike98 wrote:I'm currently using Adventures and 1st together. I wanted our Exploration Days to be on Friday with Adventures. But that leaves us switching memory verses mid-week (instead of starting with fresh ones Monday) and that is difficult. Does anyone have good suggestions for how to balance this out? Thanks!
What I did to make it work was to just skip the Exploration Day where it falls in the lesson plans, and use the next lesson for Wed. Then use what should be Friday for Thursday. Then on Friday back up and do Wed-Expl Day. Does that make any sense? I feel like I am being very confusing.
It goes like this in real life: Say you are on Day 58 (pg 95 in the TM). That is the first day for Proverbs 13:13, so that is a Monday. On Tuesday you do Day 59. On Wed in the TM it says Day 60 -- Exploration Day. Skip it and do Day 61 instead. On Thursday do Day 62. Then on Friday go back and do Day 60, Exploration Day.
Use those little flags to mark your two places -- one for the next day's lesson, one for the Wed. that you skipped. If they are different colors that will help. Or just rely on your memory to find the right spot. But I wouldn't advise that if you are almost 8 months pregnant like me :)
