So although we have been schooling year-round, we decided to claim a day as the official start to the new school year. Thus, today is our “first day of school” for the 2015-2016 school year! For us, this meant pulling out a couple new textbooks that Gabriel has been very excited about ~ especially Greek! And it has also meant that Gabriel got to choose the food for the day: grilled cheese sandwiches (with peaches and yogurt) for lunch, chocolate chip cookies for an afternoon snack, and homemade mac & cheese (with carrots, salad, and fresh bread) for dinner. It also included the kids getting pictures taken on the front porch this morning, just for fun.
For anyone (not sure who it might be!) who is interested, this is our general setup & bookish goals for this school year, which I guess we’ll call Second Grade for our seven-year-old, although we are not so very interested in emphasizing grades.
