First Day of School

 

We began our 2012-2013 school year today, yes, I know it was Labor Day. Dad was moose hunting so Labor Day isn’t a big day for our family. And this year our fall weather has hit full force.

My students, this was a great beginning day to our school year.

Art on the first day of school? Yep, amazing I know.

I really enjoyed our first day with Paths of Settlement from Trailguide to Learning from Geography Matters. This is the curriculum that I would write if I could get my thoughts together. Levi is hanging out with us today and he will work through most of this with us in addition to other things he will be working on.

Benjamin painted for the very first time today, he was thrilled. He will have to paint more often.

  2. Happy new year!! I just love being in this stage of homeschooling. We just seem to fall back into a routine and chug along without too much hassle. Looks like you do the same! Benjamin looks like a future artist!
