Week 1 - Starting Over


We are starting our school year today! This is Week 1 for us!!! WOOHOO... I will post soon about our new subjects and about what the learning is going to be weekly just like I used to. However this being the first day and after an extremely busy weekend I am not doing my normally weekly post. Our busy weekend had wonderful happenings. First an 11th birthday party then Sunday a blessed baptism for DS1.

(Our previous Pastor in blue shirt and in plaid is our current Pastor both participated)

We started off the day with getting to look over all our new supplies and books. Then we went on to just some fun crafty projects. Exploring all the new items was fun for everyone. I made a questionnaire for them to fill out for the beginning of the year and again at the end of our year to see differences and change in them. We went on to make a portrait of ourselves. The kids really seemed to like this. Then we took school pictures so we could see the change and growth in a year.



It's been really hard to imagine that I have a 6th grader this year. Wow its amazing. I have homeschooled 7 years this year, that's a little more amazing for me! I can't believe where the time has went. Will post more about our week through out. Hope everyone is having a wonderful blessed day!
