And We're Off!......
I don't mean "off" as in peculiar.
Though that may apply....
Anyway, we are off and running... first day of school was yesterday. Woot! I think I am more excited than the kids are. The first week is always a time of settling back into the routine of school. The first day is usually what public school would call "orientation".
Yesterday, we made our nature journals, personalized notebooks, got a lot of odds and ends done, did math and English, listened to "Ivanhoe" on the Homeschool Radio show (a GREAT site, btw!), and called it a day. My main goal the first week is to just get everyone back into the swing of the schedule.
Here are some pics from yesterday, before the camera blipped a "memory card full" message to me. Time to do some housecleaning on the camera!
The finished products:
Jerusha doesn't read or write yet, so I let her decorate a special notebook for when we practice her printing while learning letters.
Okay you grandparents out there reading this... did you notice something missing in that picture? Like... .maybe a tooth?
Yup, Jerusha lost her first tooth! It happened about two weeks ago, and I've been meaning to get a pic up. Such a cute little pixie face! I think we'll call her Jack... hehehehhe.
Speaking of school, I need to get off here, get everyone moving, and upload some pics from my camera so I can take a bunch more. :)
