The Start of a New Home School Year

We started our home school year today. Summer went by so quickly.

We just moved about two weeks ago and are not unpacked yet but school books were found, so we started today. The children are excited (or not) to get started.

Designer, now 15, was probably the least excited about actual "school work". He is much happier since he's almost done with his assignments already. Maybe I need to rethink his abilities?

Princess Shy, now 13, was rather happy but, as usual, not showing any emotion about it all. She has a lot of work because that is what she asked for. We'll evaluate as we go. 

Little Miss, now 5, was the most excited and was not happy that I, Learning Coach, was not quite prepared for her. We did get our salt box set up, her SWR (Spell to Write and Read) and Cursive First ready. She isn't quite ready for pencil and paper because those small motor skills require a lot of control. She did quite well with the salt box though. We did the first four numbers, 0, 6, 8, and 9 this morning. She learned the clock face style and did quite well.

If you get a chance, come join us as we journey into a new year.
