Today our county schools started back to school. I have my precious nieces that are in Kindergarten and First grade along with my nephew in 9th grade! I pray that they have an awesome day today but today has a different meaning for my family.
Today celebrates my freedom to homeschool my 3 kids - FREEDOM that took a lot of work from early parents that had the same believes as me. Thank you to all of those that fought for me to be able to keep my children at home and teach them as I see fit.
Normally we do something to celebrate but today we had a different circumstance. I had to take both boys to the Dr. this morning, Kyle has had a sore throat since Saturday night and last night Zachary started complaining about his ears. They both have strep throat so nothing exciting for them today. After the Dr. they did feel like a milkshake so I got them that to enjoy on our Not Back To School day.
Now we are at home crashing and being lazy before I have to go to work. They are getting a special treat with being allowed to play the PlayStations and Wii because it is a celebration day and they can't celebrate any other way with the way they feel.
Are you celebrating a NOT back to school day ??
Have a great school year! We started back today with our full schedule. So far so good!ReplyDelete
We've never really celebrated "Not Back to School" but we do make our first day of school special in a way that you just can't if you go away to school. Our celebration day will be Sept 1st with our formal school work starting Sept 2.ReplyDelete
we'll be attending a picnic next week with an umbrella group. Usually it's a fun day to chat and meet new people. :)ReplyDelete

We don't really celebrate Not Back to School, but our first day is full of fun traditions that the children are looking forward to this coming Monday. Daddy takes them out for breakfast while I stay home and decorate. Then they get their new school supplies and get to play. We take school pictures and fill our an "About Me" paper. This year we also have the book, The First Day of Homeschool to read and will be having fun with the "Homeschool Elf." I can't wait to share about that!ReplyDelete
