Remember when school used to start back the day after Labor Day? That’s what we did this year! As of yesterday, I am officially the Mommy of a 1st grader.
Wow! It seems like only yesterday this was my little Lovebug.
I am so blessed to be able to homeschool her, so I didn’t have to shed too many tears on the first day of school. I am really looking forward to this year ahead. There are so many things I love about homeschooling her! I love teaching her, but I also love learning right along with her. So often as I am preparing for a lesson, I learn things that I’ve forgotten (or never learned in the first place!). Other times, she gets so interested in a topic that we end up diving into books to do research and it is amazing to see her get so excited that she keeps asking for more.
We have some fun things ahead this year, and I’ll talk about those later. For now, take a look at our first day!
We started the day reading God’s word
Worked on measuring various objects in Math
Listened to Lovebug read aloud to me
Started building our own airplane
Got the giggles
Did a little monkeying around and hanging from the rafters (love our sensory swing!!)
Ended the day watching a video of Daddy reading a bedtime story & having a bedtime snack
It was a great start to what I know will be an awesome year!
