First Day of School

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.


  1. you are such a super-fun Momma!

  2. Not sure if I commented here or not before, but I love your blog. It is very inspiring. It looks like you had a great first day. Congrats on your first day back to school. Wish you a great week. We are on our 5th week, and taking next week off for a road trip.

  3. Yea for you and the kids! We had our first day yesterday too, and it went smooth as silk. Yea for me and Gracie!

  4. Happy back to school! I think it's so great that your kiddos were so eager to start! Hope the excitement sticks around for a long time :) !!!

  5. Looks like you had a great 1st day back-to-homeschool! We began the same day. It was a really good first week!
