First Day Of School!

We started school on Monday! I want to get some extra weeks under our belt, so I will be free to take off some time when the baby comes. The kids were all actually excited about it, and so far this week has gone great. I have really enjoyed all our new curriculum choices. Buster has been asking to do phonics, and told me "Phonics is actually fun". Sweetpea has been following right along, and I give her something to occupy her when Buster needs one on one. Yesterday she wanted to do Phonics Pathways too, and she read Cat with some help. She was very excited about it. Today she didn't want to do it so we didn't. My husband is going to be doing Science and History for me when he gets home, and they did their first History lesson yesterday. I told Sweetpea she could listen if she wanted. It was really cute because she sat through the whole thing, and actually listened better than Buster. As usual Buttercup is right there with us too, and has been having fun with toys while we work.

Buster took this picture of us girls.

The three musketeers!

and the two crazies!

I'm glad your first week went well. You sure have some cute kiddos. They remind me of my three when they were younger in that they look so much alike.

Hope next week goes great, too!

It looks like you are off to a good start.

Your family is adorable!

I look forward to hearing how the phonics continues. My oldest taught herself to read so I didn't really need a program. But now I'm thinking WAAYY ahead as to some options when it's time for the littlest to learn to read.
