School Begins

We have finally started school.  I usually try to start in the third week of August, but that just did not happen this year.  And if you want to know, the reason is we all need a schedule again.

Here are a few pictures from our first days back. 

I now have a pre-school who actually wants to do some school.  You will see farther down how good he did coloring his letter Aa's.  I'm sorry the picture is fuzzy.  Four year old boys do not sit still well.

The third grader who has finally really grasped reading even though she continues to want me spell words for her.

Our fifth grader who is our girl who loves learning.

This is a look at our schoolroom.

We started the school year with projects partly for the fun factor and partly because I still do not have all of their curriculum.

We made some zucchini cupcakes with caramel frosting.  Oh so good!!

Then today we made family trees.  We are going to be talking about acceptance for our Bible class and we started with talking about our biological family (how you don't get to choose who is a part of it) and then God's family (how anyone can be a part of it).

I think they turned out well.  They were really fun to do.

Here is Luken showing off his ability to stay within the lines.

I bet you noticed the lack of Miss Bailee.  She has actually been doing her last week of babysitting for some family friends this week, so she has not technically started school yet.

Her dunce cap contained some school supplies and little gifts I gave the kids.  I didn't get a picture before they had opened them.

Oh, and by the way, she is a senior this year.  It will be my last year with her in our homeschool.  I'm sad and excited for the new adventure she will be embarking on.
