While mapping a home school yearly schedule is an excellent idea, remember to allow for flexibility in schedule. Any school year, especially since school year is taking place also centered around your home and your family, will have need for unforeseen breaks and absences. Not to worry, just as there are unforeseen missed hours and even days in public school so will there be with your at home education.
Just remember it may take a while to sand off rough edges of your home school schedule to where you feel you have best optimized it. As year goes by, if you have kept good records and used your lesson plan as your guide you will see that your child is indeed learning all along way.
