First day of school

August 23, 2011 057

Today was our first official day of school for the 2011 – 2012 school year.

We had a great day!

The kids loved our new curriculum which I’ve not written about yet but will soon…

It was fun and they learned so much today.

And that was just the first day! 

We can not wait to see what this year holds for us.

I get to spend every day of this school year with these five blessings as we learn, laugh, and do things together.

And I consider that a blessing!


  1. What a beautiful school ma'rm you are! :) These children are beatiful -- so thankful for a great first day! I can't wait to hear all about it and this mysterioso curriculum!

  2. Thank ya much. :) About that curriculum... I'm just procrastinating writing that post. Sooooo many links to link up to... I need to just get over it. But we started My Father's World Exploring Countries and Cultures today. They really did love it. I was so impressed that my three oldest were sitting around the table using words like "abiotic", "biotic", and "biogeographic realm" and discussing The Irish Potato Famine (Sonlight history) all the while talking about the people we will be praying for this year in their conversations as we were eating today. I saw some lights lit today that made this Mom's heart so incredibly happy. I hope they hold on to that spark all year long. I will write about our curriculum soon. I have taken a bit of a different relaxed approach this year... new for me but looks to be a good far. Of course,I've formed that opinion after only one day of school! :)

  3. Hi! I am stopping by from the MFW Blogroll and co-hosting the My Father's World Homeschool Highlights this school year with Kathi @ A Heart Like Water. This is where MFW families connect weekly, or as often as you like, to share what we are doing in our schools. The first one is Aug 25, the info is on my blog. I hope you join us!


    ps: We are doing ECC this year too! I hope you have a great year!
