First Day of School

Back To School3IMG_5341

Today was the BIG kickoff to our new school year.  We are members of a homeschool covering that starts on June 1st and ends on May 31st, which means that we can accumulate school days anytime during that period.  We like to get a few school days done during the summer while it is blazing hot outside.  It works well for our family to do school 2 –3 days a week during the summer – mostly review work and finish up those darn grammar + math books – and then we have a big start to our new school year like today where we pull out all the new school supplies.

The children were full of excitement about the new schedule and fun new books.  It is a special day for our family where we look forward to all the fun learning we will experience together this year.  Of course, we took the traditional 1st day of school photos…

When we were making our signs a few days before, the older children pointed out to me that we needed signs too.
