We have started on our new adventure in homeschooling! I spent some time getting things set up. Our cart is full of new pencils, paper and fresh workbook sheets. The bulletin board has been spruced up.
It list our expectations, verse to inspire us and a spot to keep the spelling list so it doesn't go missing. *wink*
I set the kitchen up the night before. It makes things run much smoother when things are ready to go in the morning.
I started a batch of crock pot oatmeal before I went to bed. Yum!
The banner and apple came from Target. They had some really cute back to school items.
After breakfast it was time for the obligatory front porch picture.
It was then time to hit the books.
Isn't math always easier when completed while laying on the kitchen floor? *smile*
Our school day was finished off with the start of a science experiment.
Then it was time for lunch.
Aren't these trays the cutest?! When I saw them I thought of lunch room trays and knew they would be fun. The set came with matching bowls, cups and even silverware. Cute!
There was free time until it was time for an afternoon snack.
Snack was enjoyed on the back porch while our read aloud was started.
My favorite moment of the day was when I realized it was 3:30 and Megan was outside playing.
In the past we would have been arriving home from school. The rush for snack, homework, and dinner prep would have awaited us. It was such a relaxing feeling to know Megan could be a kid and play without the added stress of more schoolwork.
Each time I look over and see the science experiment turned table center piece I smile. I think I'm going to love this!
May your day be filled with joy in the journey!
