First Day of School

If you're reading this blog, you probably know by now that we do school at home with our children. It's a hard job for Cindy, but we're convinced its worth it and the best option for our family right now. Lots of benefits, lots of flexibility (especially since I work from home), but sometimes it makes for some funny situations. Just last week Andrew and I went to a neighbor's house to see if Andrew's buddy could come out and play, but his mom reminded us that Nathan was still at school. Woops! We forgot that our public schools opened SO early and we were taking a more leisurely schedule until after Labor Day.

Anyway, today was finally OUR first day of school and the kids were great. When the kids are asking to start school you know it's time. Andrew is starting second grade this year and will still go to the Greenhouse (Classical, Christian school) on Wednesdays. Katie is starting kindergarten at home and is very eager. Josh is, well, very attention-hungry and a real challenge.

There are some things about homeschooling that are the same as public school and some things that are different, but something that's still special to us is taking pictures on the front porch.

Amazing! Your kids are getting so huge. I will have to get pointers from Cindy on how to teach the 2 older ones while managing Josh.

Your kids are adorable! It makes me feel old seeing Andrew so grown up! I babysat him when he was just a little guy. Crazy.
I'm so glad you're homeschooling! My brothers and I have GREAT memories from homeschooling, and I know you guys will too. :-)
