School started on Monday. It took me up until the last free weekday of summer to get my planning finished, new school clothes found, new crayons rotated in, and pencil boxes filled.
Here is the happy crew, quite excited about starting a new school year. Rachel and Andrew are particularly excited about US Geography and Astronomy. We will be studying one state a week and besides doing map work we'll be reading books from each state, and cooking state foods as well!
Andrew had fun drawing an enormous picture this past week. The picture doesn't show how big it was. He was quite proud of it.
The weather is still hot and I'm trying to get the kids to the pool at least 3 afternoons a week. It will be closed before we know it. We enjoyed a day at the fair yesterday and I must get around to posting pictures. We all love the fair.
Now it's time to get to bed and rest up for another day of school!
