I started my morning bright and early making sure to get in my reading and quiet time with God before the busy day started. I thought I had allowed plenty of time to get everything finished that I needed to do before the kids all woke up. Apparently I forgot to factor in the first day of school excitement and the first little one rolled out of bed an hour earlier than usual. I guess all the new curriculum and the school room had them all excited!
It wasn’t long before all 4 had joined me, and we were ready to get our day going. We made scrambled eggs and cheese for breakfast. Then before, we got into the school work, we made sure to do the kiddos pictures so we could show off how big they are all getting.
Our new schedule is going to work great for us. At least from what I can tell now. Of course, things are always subject to change. Today was Mystery of History day, and tomorrow we will dive in to Swimming Creatures from Apologia. The kids had a blast, and everyone loved all of the new curriculum. The older two are ecstatic that they are getting to do their math on Mommy’s computer this year. The twins felt a bit left out on this area, but I am trying to make their math just as fun. (They aren’t old enough for Teaching Textbooks yet.)
All in all we had a fantastic day! I could not have asked for a better first day. How was your families first day back to school?
