This was our first day of school:
We started the day grumpy with not enough sleep, but we smoothed it over with peanut butter oatmeal for breakfast. We organized our school binders, colored another square on the Bible coloring pages we started this summer, handed out new books, and discussed our schedule. We even made a quick drive to the library to pick up some holds.
Alaine will be 6 in a few weeks and is starting first grade. She loves school and is looking forward to math and writing. She also loves when I read aloud.
Ben will be 8 in October and he is starting third grade. He is most excited about math, and I'm excited that he became a fluent and speedy reader over the summer so I can assign more complex books for history.
Owen will be 10 next week and is entering fifth grade. He is also looking forward to math and loves when the school day involves art or cooking.
Maddie is 12 and starting seventh grade. She is looking forward to learning Japanese this year and also excited about science and journaling.
Gavin will be 14 in December and beginning his high school journey! He asked to study art history this year, and he accumulated enough hours this summer to be well on his way to earning a P. E. credit.
