Finish Line recently sent us some goodies to help the kids’ back-to-school wardrobe. One of the perks of being homeschooled is that you can literally sit around all day in your pjs, but I still try to make an effort to get us all dressed and ready for the day even if we’re not leaving the house. (Which in all honesty rarely happens. I am the stay-at-home mom who never stays home.)
We took a couple of weeks off from formal school during our beach trip (and the week after) but start back up again TODAY. Armed with coffee and some freshly sharpened pencils, we’ll start Henry on his first grade assignments and Clara on some Kindergarten fundamentals. I’m using a mish mash of curriculums (Sing, Spell, Read & Write, Reading Eggs, Math Seeds and a few Kumon workbooks) and I actually have a PLAN for how this year will look. This same time last year, I was so sick with Porter’s pregnancy that we struggled through a lot of the first few months. Luckily my children just went along with the ride and retained a TON of information – Henry learned to read chapter books and Clara can do most anything I ask of her. (Except to stop singing “Let It Go” off key. She most definitely will not stop doing that.)
I’m truly excited to see what this year of homeschooling will bring! Exciting times ahead for us Wrights!
QUESTION: If you have kids, when do they start back to school? How old?
