We did it -- our first day of school is done!
We are all really tired out, which sounds silly...but it takes a lot out of us to readjust to the mentally intense, consecutive hours. The kids did great, though, and I was reminded just how much I love teaching them!A highlight of the day: the kids chose new chapter books to keep in their desks and read when their seatwork is done, then they made their own bookmarks for a mini-art project. Abigail could hardly wait to get into hers and wasn't very happy about putting it away when it was time for the next subject!Here they are, done with our first day (below)! (No, they're not making the peace sign.) Abigail is signing "K" for kindergarten and David is signing "2" for second grade. (How are those possible?!)
