For whoever may be interested in this, I have a file with my flex schedules. There are suggested folk songs and Italian songs, and it may give you an idea of how to do your own little guideline for the year, month and week. This is the yearly overview I shared before but that now you can have as a word file, scroll to the bottom to see links to my favorite lists where I update the folk songs, hymns, and foreign language videos.
For accountability, fun, and to share with others, I will try to record our Year 1 week by week.
