First Day of Homeschool 2013

August 12th, 2013

Well, the first day isn’t quite over. We have Bible and Music left on the schedule. I also have a project I need them to finish. I am loving several websites/blogs right now.  – free pdf printable lesson books for many instruments – NICE  – free cute printable organizing sheets/planners/etc – very handy


Our first day went well. I have a 4th grader  (quote of the day, “I can’t wait to see what 4th grade is like!”), 1st grader (loves math still and read through a book without help), Preschooler (quote of the day, “Can I do school?!”), and toddler (2) (played with busy bags and trains and fussed because I was busy).  I am glad 1st grader is finally picking on on phonics/reading. I’m thankful I was able to  give her the time she needed to catch on. I quite possibly will have another early reader with my preschooler. He seems to learn like his older brother. I was also super excited to hear toddler shout out “GREEN!” when seeing the color without prompt. I didn’t know he knew that. :-) I also think it’s adorable that other colors are named as the person who likes them. Yellow is “Me!”, Orange “Joe”, Purple “Jenna”, and blue “Caden”.  Too cute.

I haven’t taken the “first day” picture yet since half are still in pjs. I do plan to do that soon.

Thanks for reading. I must go so I can figure out how to get this printer to PRINT! Augh….

P.S – I recommend homeschoolers have a copier.. we do not.. and I WANT ONE …   that’s all.

    Blue Willow is our homeschool name, chosen for the beautiful willow tree in our yard and the Bluegrass state we live in. Homestyle is defined as "involving the home or family" and "domestic". Here you will find stories about our life as a family and tips from me, a mommy of four. I will talk about a variety of things that pertain to our family and other things I'm passionate about. I do hope you enjoy.
