Weekly Wrap Up: Our First Week Back to School

This week was our first week back to school. The kids were ready to jump back in and start learning. I was ready for a regular routine again!

I always take a photo of them working the first day, but when I went to snap the photo, the kids had already decided to give me a hard time!
Attempt Number 1
As you can see they love to give me a hard time! LOL

Attempt Number 2

DRATS! Well, they say "third time's a charm". . . .


I love those crazy kids!

I did realize this week that when using Sonlight, it is VERY HEAVY on lots of stuff to do so I had to redesign my plans yet again to make sure I did not overload them with too much stuff.

Reading time is still our favorite time. This is where they get to just sit and listen while I read. Even Ruffles enjoys reading time.

Later during the week, we went to visit my dad and while there Kayla found the most beautiful butterfly that had just died. Someone told me what kind it was, but I forgot so I am going to let her look him up next week in the field guide for nature study time.

Kayla also took it upon herself this past week to create her own art project. She bubbled her name out on paper and turned it into a house! Her first name is the inside of the house and her last name is the outdoors area. It is really neat and I am so proud that she loves to just sit and create.

Next week, we are starting our Science. Robert will begin Biology and Kayla will be doing Life Science. They are looking forward to all the stuff they get to look at under the microscope!

Thanks for stopping by. I'm sorry this is so late but I've had internet set up problems lately and hopefully this was the last of it as I finally have fully functional working internet. Come by again and enter my Giani Granite Review and Giveaway! Low entries!

Looks like a great first week. I love the name/house artwork! First day photos are a challenge here too. Last year, I had to sneak a picture of my daughter as she was getting out of her car after the first day of college.
