1st day of homeschool

This morning was our first "official" day of homeschool. Official to us anyway:) Levi's very excited about being in preK - he wanted to show off his pencil box and school supplies. We also marked his and Brenna's height on the doorframe. Brenna did NOT appreciate that. I don't know what she thought was happening, but she howled! And that's why we have no picture of Brenna.
We have a few other things planned for today - cupcakes for snack time and an after-supper in-our-jammies (the kids! I meant the kids!) ice cream run. But lessons are over for today (the preplanned, sit at the table ones anyway) - we kept that kind of short. And they went really well. Levi's reading is coming along:) Posted by Picasa

Congratulations, Shannon. I know that you've been looking forward to this day for a while. How did it go with the other two littlies around? Did you have a plan, or did you just kind of wing it? I'm asking because I'm gathering information for when it's time for us to start!

ALL RIGHT!!! Exciting day for all. Can we have confirmation from someone else that it really wasn't YOU out for ice cream in jammies??? Hmmm.....

We've had two pretty great days so far:) I probably over-planned, actually, Michelle. Winging it works for me as long as I have a plan to fall back on. Kids this size do not seem to have enough of an attention span to let me think if we run out of stuff to do!
Dawn - I make no promises:)
