First Day of School!!!

As I'm writing this we are half way through our first day of school!!!  I have been looking forward to this for weeks now and I'm so thrilled to actually be starting. 

I can't believe I actually have a second grader this year!!!  We had to send in our "letter of intent to home school" this year because she is seven.  It is funny to me that we are "officially" home schoolers now (even though we've been doing it for several years!).
Bethany is in first grade.  Age wise she should probably be Kindergarten.  But she has her dad's mind. 
Havilah is a second year pre-schooler!  Her grasp of letter sounds and her math skills have grown by leaps and bounds even over the summer.  She loves learning and loves having a class mate this year!
That's right!  I have TWO pre-schoolers this year!  How blessed am I?!?  Ella is elated that finally she can do school.  So far we are studying the ins and outs of "E".  Pretty sure she will have mastered it before the year is over!
Last but not least, we have one more little "Blanket Time" student!
Esther did so fabulously this first day of school!  She was content, quiet and napped like a champ.  Hoping it continues on like this!
I'm sure there will be more blogging about school in days to come.  Today I'm just soooooo excited to be starting a new year!

What a fun idea--having the girls hold up signs showing their school levels. You should make it an annual tradition so you have a pictoral reference of their ages. I loved seeing those darling home-made cloth alphabet shapes in Esther's picture. I loved everything about this post! I love everyone IN this post!!!!
Love, Mom
