Lunch Break

Today was the first day of school. It has gone remarkably well. If you don't include the screaming toddler after about an hour of school. She calmed down once Cheerios were brought into play. ;)

Becca whipped through her math and English seat work. She had a blast coloring in her papers once she was done. And she is reading so, so well.

Tyler proclaimed his math "so easy." Loved the English paper and when I asked him why the words "Mom" and "Dad" were capitalized he responded, "Because they're in charge." Of course. Why didn't I think of that.

So now little one is down. Lunches are being eaten. Science, history and literature await us. Thanks to all you who have offered advice on homeschooling with a toddler. It has been much appreciated.

Sounds like a great start to school. Love that that is why we are capitalized. LOL

I just found your blog through the MckForum. I'm not a homeschool mom, yet. My babe is only 7 months old, but we're already "learning." Both my hubs and I were homeschooled from pre-K through highschool. I'm glad your first day went well! :)
