The Littles at School

Sometimes in the school FB page there will be a photo of my little ones doing their school thing! What fun for me to get a glimpse inside this world.

Second Day

My little scholars off to day 2 of their new school adventure. 
Malcolm was playing outside in the sprinkler and kiddie pool yesterday when the neighbor asked him how his day was:
"Well guess what? These are the two worse parts. At recess there aren't enough balls. And the other worse part is that this pool is on a hill!"

He was a little more hesitant today. I'm hoping he just has to get into his new routine and he will love it.

Day 1 is done

We have gotten through the first day of both traditional school and homeschool. Although LMCA doesn't start until next week, the older boys got started with our non-LMCA subjects today at home. 
They both LOVED their day. Malcolm claims he made no friends, while Margaret says she made lots of friends. She said at one point that one of her teachers said she would separate her and her desk mate if they continued to chat so much!💜 A girl after my own heart! Both said recess was their favorite part of the day. Both came home with impossible wishes for their lunch boxes (hot lunches but brought from home, not purchased) and both forgot to purchase milk in the cafeteria. This of course reminded me that I forgot to send the money for milk. 
Homeschool was filled with its usual beginning of the year ups and downs like computers not working for math and grumbling about workloads and chores. 
We will have ups and downs all year, but I am grateful to at least have the first day successfully completed. 
Long Island iced tea is the best way to celebrate day 1 of 180 completed. We're doing this! Let the adventure begin!

First Day of School

Backpacks are packed, lunch boxes are filled--Malcolm and Margaret are school-bound!

We are very excited that they get to attend CDT classical school. Malcolm is kindergarten and Margaret is grade 3. 






This is a big step for us. We are so excited for these kids!
