First Day of School


Today was the first day of school, and thank goodness we survived!!!


The kids had a easy transition into school, translate that as little work and lots of fun and introductions.


I decided that this year was the year that we were going to go with a whole "box" curriculum. With the baby coming i am hoping that it will take some of the questions that we experienced last year out of the equation. I chose My Father's World, and so long as we can get into a groove we should do ok when the baby arrives.


Now what is a first day of school without a few celebration treats. This morning we had special breakfast and tonight for dessert i made Wacky Cake. Be sure to check out the recipe. It was so tasty, and moist and yummy! Avery insisted that we have candles.




I sure wish i could share some with all of you...but since i can't i am going to go share some with my hubby!

They're smiling. That's good! I'm thinking I'll have to make that cake soon. If I look through my recipes, I may have one similar.

They look happy! It was our first day too. I think the whole "box" curriculum is a good idea with the baby coming. Let me know how you like this one. We use the (insert subject here) for Christian Schools by Bob Jones University Press. I love hearing feedback about other ones.

I used to be able to do a back bend like that! I think I would hurt myself if I tried that now, or get stuck!

I love that you home school and still did first day of school photos and celebrating. Looks like a fun day!

That cake looks dangerous...

funny--the first recipe in the link was right underneath the chocolate cake photo. I thought it was odd that the cake had ketchup and onions in it. :)

You are ambitious--baby and homeschooling? Amazing!
