Back to School!!

We have had a good first day of school. My part is finished for a bit, I'll grade papers this afternoon and make the last of my copies for tomorrow. We finished the huge assortment of things to cover in a little over 4 hours. The older girls are working on some things independently while Lilly practices her music. That lets me know my planning has been almost right on the money. I am going to add just a few more things to our day-I want to be right at 4 and a half hours instruction, 1 and a half hours of projects, experiments, etc. Erik is going to teach a history class with a neat curriculum involving movies. Maybe he will do that tonight. The movie was hard to find but Netflix came through for us!

WHEW!! It went well. I did have some negative attitudes to deal with-theirs and then mine over theirs-but we made it through to the other side. I have a fun night out tonight, known as the homeschool support group meeting. I am so glad to be a part of such a wonderful versatile group!!

I am very glad to be back to school! I hope I can keep that attitude until our first break and then resume it after that break. It's all in the attitude, you know.
