Today was our first day back to school. I had planned to begin last week, but two of the kids were sick so my good intentions fell apart. What we DID do last week was make and mail out all of our Christmas thank you cards (which is no small undertaking; I think we sent out nearly 30 cards) and we took a field trip to see some eagles who were fishing for salmon at a nearby river.
But this week? We're in. We are gradually easing our way back to routine.
Our (light) schedule for today was:
Devotions (independent Bible time)
Bible & narrations
My ABC Bible Verses
Outside Time (20 min)
Ella: Piano practice
Isaac: storytime with the little girls
Read-aloud (I began reading Little House in the Big Woods; I read it in 2008 with the older three, but now I get to read it again so that the little girls can appreciate it.)
Picture Study: Diego Velazquez
Isaac: Piano practice
That's it! What we didn't do that would normally be on our Monday schedule:
-me, waking up by 6:30. (I woke at 7:45)
-memory work at breakfast
-Daily Checklist (for the older three): Math, Copywork/Cursive and Assigned reading
But it was a good first day back!
Hope you had a wonderful day!
