Yesterday we started school and I must say it was a pretty good start. I mean, you have to factor in the fact that brains have been on summer vacation (mine included) and it takes a little bit of effort to get back on a schedule. I always like to look back at our previous first days. We always take a photo at our front door. Not that I thought it would be the same front door for all of school, but it did hit me that we have a different front door on a different house this year. And it almost made me sad. Almost.
I finally got them to stop giggling for a few seconds to capture these...
And since we have a new front door, that means we also have a new school room so I thought I would share!
We are really enjoying having a room just for school and it is right off of the kids' rooms. Our previous one can be seen here.
And since people often ask what curriculum we use, I'll tell you:
Math :: Saxon 3
History :: We are combining Story of the World 2 with Mystery of History 2. This year we are starting a timeline book and I am so excited!
Writing :: Writing with Ease
Ok, well I have some cinnamon bread to go check on...
