We had a great first day! The kids (and I) were eager to begin and bring some order and direction to our days again. All three of them were up and dressed at 6:00 this morning... maybe a little too eager to start "doing school" again.
Hannah planned to make a special breakfast (Hide-and-Seek Muffins from our favorite kid cookbook, Pretend Soup). Very cute. And yummy.
The day went very well. It was beautiful here... cool and fall-like. We opened up all the windows. Breezed through our lessons. (Hannah was thrilled with the easing you in/review lessons for everything today.) And the kids spent most of the afternoon outside.
And, of course, we had to have a First Day special afternoon snack. Peter told me the other day that I never make cupcakes. So, I made cupcakes.
