I actually did it, I've been thinking about it for so long and it finally happened. My kids woke up on the first day of school and....we didn't have to go anywhere. We parked ourselves in our dining room and did a full days work of homeschooling. It went pretty smoothly for the first day, I got to experience first hand how my kids SOAK up knowledge! I was super boring, I focused on the basics, and yet they were awesome with it all. I really hope this is the precursor to how life will be. I know we will have our ups and downs, but for the majority I would love to have more days like this than the other way around. We had Art today and for our lesson we did First Day of School photos. We were going all over the yard trying to find the right lighting, we tried different positions until we could get a semi-professional pose. It was so funny how much Miriam was getting into it, before I could say anything to the person I was taking the picture of she was behind me saying, "Straighten your back, pull your shoulders down, drop your chin...etc." It was awesome! I think I got some pretty good pictures, and here they are:
Happy 43rd Birthday Matt!
