First day of School

We finally began our first day of "home"school! It was a light day with mainly organizing, figuring out what book goes with each subject and reading lesson plans. It was a great way to ease into it, but let's just say I wasn't as organized as I thought. My dining room, a.k.a. school room, looked like a bomb went off. I was too embarrassed to snap a close up picture, but believe me, it was BAD! Real BAD!

As for the actual learning part (that's what we're supposed to do, right?), the girls did great! Chloe had a few subjects to read and some light math. Rylie had almost nothing to do and was rather mad about it. I assured her that it wouldn't stay like that for long.

I considered the day a success. No whining, I didn't melt down, and I remembered to serve them lunch....after the principal (my husband) reminded me that it was almost 1:00 p.m. Ooops! Guess mommy needs a timer.

We are super excited for the rest of the week and our first day of home "school"....the first day of class at the school we are signed up with. Of course I am excited since I get the day off from teaching :)
