Re: "sequence of events" for proper lawn care
Generally I agree with Canuk, though with reseeding there are two theories of thought. One is to do it first thing in the spring, however that can often mean a delay in germination because you've not gone out and spread the seed. However, if you were to spread the seed in the late fall, after dethatching and aeration, the seed will lie dormant until it's warm enough to sprout, which is likely far earlier than if you were to seed in the spring. Also, keep in mind that if you're using weed and feed fertilizers that those types of fertilizers are designed to halt germination, so don't use them for several months before and after seeding.
