Our first day of school came and went without a lot of excitement I must say. Maybe it was because we never really took off the summer. Maybe it was because we just got back from a crazy weekend in California. Maybe it was because David was still away. Not sure the reason, but things were just not the same this year.
I made a bunch of changes- a huge thanks to the website Confessions of a Homeschooler - for her awesome organization ideas and other great things that I have worked into our home school. I adapt her ideas to work for our budget and our needs. One of them is the Daily Notebook. I think it is a great way to start the day and get focused. Along with handwriting, calendar, and weather work.
The girls enjoy doing it.
I am hoping to get some new photos of how much things have changed in the 5 weeks since we started. Always fine tuning!
