First “Official” Day Back to School

Pin It Now!

The first day back went pretty well. Will take a few days to completely get back into the swing of things. Firsts things first, though—I have to make a point to take pictures on the first day of each school year!!

Shiloh—first day of still being in pre-school. 4

We have a hodgepodge of goodies—I use the site, for a lot of things, starting Happy Phonics, using some Abeka materials, and reading lots and lots of books. She is so ready to read, so I HAVE to find the time to teach her! She incessantly asks me how to spell words. She often surprises me by spelling a few 3-letter words with fridge magnets. I absolutely love her eagerness. :-)

I am really going to try and get through most of our work by Thursday of each week, so we can spend an ample amount of time on creative writing on Fridays. Maybe we can slip in art and music every now and then, too. I want Fridays to be filled with all of the “extra” stuff. There are soooooooooo many things I want to do but just not enough time or energy to do them!

It looks like an excellent teaching programme. Your oldest son looks so much like you!
