1st Day of School 2012

Today was the day.

The first day of school.

The girls woke up very excited this morning and were dressed before I could even open my own eyes. Of course they dressed themselves and we took the famous 'first day of school' pictures.

This is Allison.

Then Alyssa.

I got Madelynn settled on the couch with some cartoons and we got to work.

We talked about dinosaurs, played games on the computer, made an 'F' letter sheet, slipped through a picture dictionary, did our 'Ready for the Code' pages and laughed a lot.

It's amazing to see how much their hand writing has improved and the way that they process information.

We had a very good morning and by 11am we were finished. We spent a total of 2 hours at the table with a few snack/restroom breaks. 

Tonight we start reading the Boxcar Children and Johnathon will take care of that. It makes me happy to see him helping out with their schooling.

We won't be using that kitchen table for much longer. We now more than ever need to get started with our new one. I need to make that a priority.

I hope you are all having a great start to the week!!

Really intersting to read about your homeschooling your girls. It would be quite a feat to homeschool twins while also having another one at home.
I really enjoyed reading this.
