Day One

Our first day of school for 2011-2012 is done!  It was a great day!!!!  I was beyond ready for some structure and some sort of schedule and I secretly think know that the kids were ready too.

  I am such a list maker, box checker kinda person.  When we finish something, I go over it in my plan book with a highlighter.  This lets me glance and see what we have already done and what is still left.  If we didn't get to it today, then I know what needs to be carried over to tomorrow's plans.  Here is what the two plan books looked like after day 1.  
Just to clarify, I did start a new curriculum this year, Heart of Dakota.  It is an open and go kinda book, but I like to write my plans down in my own plan book!  I know. . . I've got issues.  Here are just a few pics of the boys on their first day.  We did some fun stuff, but I am saving those pictures for another post! :-)

Oh wait. . . A woman that I met in our homeschool group told me about Christian Homeschool Athletic Association of Florida.  (They have one in Texas too)  It is like a p.e. class for homeschoolers.  Ours will meet every Wednesday from 1:00 - 4:00 and the kids will learn/participate in four different sports/activities (archery, track and field, kickball, flag football, basketball, etc.) a month.  We are soooo excited.  I am sure there will be future posts about this little adventure!
