First Day of School

Today was our first day of school so we took our traditional first day of school pictures in the corner of the kitchen. This year I opted not to wait until everyone was dressed neatly with hair done and smiling sweetly. Since that might take until January. This is real life, 1st day of lessons....

This is the best picture I could get of Christian. The kids insisted he had to have a picture made, too, since he is "sort of" a preschooler this year. I went with it, but seeing how Christian did convinced me Luke was definitely too little.

Levi is a fourth grader this year and waaay to cool for all this.

Brenna is a very young third grader - she just turned 7 - but grades are just numbers so I let her say what she likes. She is doing 3rd grade math so that should count for something. She also lost a tooth at bedtime last night and wanted to show it off.

Jack is a kindergartener! He did really well today - stuck with us through all the reading and everything.

I'm excited about this year. Lots of plans for the charming side of homeschool - nature clubs, fun projects, some of my favorite history topics, and soooo many wonderful books to read!
