Though we are crazy in love with homeschooling, it's not an option right now for us. So yesterday we spent the day getting ready for back to school. Clothes were tried on, purchased, washed, dried, hung up...New shoes were purchased the day before. School supplies have been sorted and placed in new backpacks.
And through it all, I find myself feeling sad, yet excited too. Sad that I can't homeschool the boys right now. But excited for them. Jerimiah starts band this year. Anthony's teacher seems really nice and her room is fun. Plus, they are both going to schools I attended. So there's that cool feeling of nostalgia. I'm blessed to be able to take the day off from work tomorrow, so we can at least start the day with a minimum of crazy. Just one morning. :)
We are reading "Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightening Thief." The boys are really enjoying it. It's a big change from "Little House on the Prairie!" We also continue to cook new food. This summer the boys have made themselves breakfast almost every morning. They can cook eggs just about every way there is!
They are good little men, and we will continue to do school at home- and outside of the home!
