More of our first day back to homeschooling.
1:45 Come home from the neighbors pool to find watermelon, cantaloupe, and fresh farm cucumbers and tomatoes on the front porch. I am thinking they were a gift from someone at church. Yummy! Anna and Jojo set to work mixing up trail mix to have for snacks this week.
2:00 Lunch is finally served... veggies, hummus and crackers.
One satisfied customer:), chewing away on a carrot.
Enjoying fresh flowers from Samuel's garden. I love zinneas and cosmos! They are so bright, colorful, cheery and make great cut flowers:)
2:45 Now the real learning begins... We do Science together, the boys do History and we tie up all of the loose ends of school around 5:00. It was a busy but productive afternoon.
This is so not what our days normally look like, given my teacher background... I can be kind of rigid with our schedule. It is nice to be able to be flexible when I have to. Maybe starting off slow will be a good transition into the normal school routine.
All in all, it was a good day, no real tears (besides at the dentist), eating icecream, swimming and school.
Thanking God that we survived the first day back:)
