First day of school pictures are pretty popular right now, and our house is no exception. Can you believe they have sweatshirts on? It was chilly - 51 degrees - this morning. I must say, our classroom probably has one of the best views in the state.
By lunchtime, we had finished most of our "together work" and the girls were working on some independent assignments. They are both really excited about a year long project on countries the Eastern Hemisphere. They aren't excited about spelling and math.
Veteran homeschoolers say it gets easier as they get older because the kids start to take on more responsibility, and thankfully, I'm starting to see that in both of them - at least for today.
