I made a loose outline of 3 lists, Must Haves, Want to Have, and Fun.
If I do a fun box after each harder box I'd end up with way more boxes than 12. Again I don't have the book yet.

My Must Haves include
Science (Apologia General)
Spelling for Olivia
Audio Literature

I thought I could alternate History and Science, doing History 3 days a week and Science 2 days a week, but I don't think Science would get finished. We also notebook or lapbook these two subjects in addition to reading, so that would add another box for each.

Want to Have
Nature Journal
Music appreciation (they do not have formal music lessons at this point, but Olivia is trying to teach herself to play guitar)
Enrichment Reading
Homemaking/Handicraft- TOD-KAH (Training our Daughters to be Keepers At Home) and/or Polished Cornerstones
iPod-Listening to selected short messages- Joyce Meyer Radio, Grammar Girl, Learn French podcast, Faith Comes by Hearing Daily Proverbs and Psalms, Your Story Hour ( not all of these daily of course)

Mad Libs
iPod- Free, music or story
computer game
exercise/train dog
I suppose that tramp jumping & bike riding (PE) can also be on the Fun list.

Hey Marni, I didn't know how to reach you any other way...hope this is okay. I found a great free curriculum today for 3 & 4 year olds kind of like the Brightly Beaming one. I know you're kids are older than that...but I thought you may want to pass it along to your homeschooling friends. It's http://www.abcjesuslovesme.com/ Up at the top you click on the curriculum you want to look at!
