he has become my 'star pupil' can't get enough of seat work activities... huh, who is this kid????
how she is able to learn right along side her older brother and has already mastered holding and using a pencil.
Amazed with how they love to work together.
Amazed with their technical skill!!!
Amazed with their tenderness towards each other.
Amazed that I am blessed to be their mom!
"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made..."

We started with our new tradition of heading to Dunkin Dounuts to celebrate "non back to school" Then to the jungle gym in the backyard to work off that energy :)
Then it was time to get the little ones involved
so I could spend some time getting Sean
settled into his new routine.
Robert was so much faster at this...it blew

I am quite excited myself, I have to say, to feel so organized... I hope that translates into great accomplishment...
... tune in this week to find out :):)
Here are the promised pictures of our NEW classroom.
We walk in the room through the preschool dramatic play area.
Ahead is my storage closet...
where I can try to make my hoarding
problem look more civilized :)
Next the Computer Lab...
a favorite even among the preschool set.
Our Workboxes and tot boxes.
I hoard books as well as craft supplies.
More handy storage
Back towards the preschool play area.
This is really a toyroom/schoolroom.
This is the hidden treasure I found
in the laundry room...
....what you ask????
My new Poster Center Holder
Far more useful as a school item
then a laundry item :):)
Well that's it for now...
....thanks for taking a look.
Better get to bed
we have a BIG day tomorrow!!

Speaking of slipping away...where did the first week of August go???
I was going...GOING to start school the first week of August...time for a new plan...good thing we're flexible here.
I'm so excited to be adding the younger two children "officially" to our homeschool this year in pre-K and preschool (they are 2.5 & 4.5) along with older brother who will be starting 4th grade.
We have moved our schoolroom downstairs this year as my son and I were both growing weary of the kitchen table...blahhh. We have a fresh new start this year and we are really excited. I'll post some pictures later today.
So now this weekend we are all about getting ready for our first (our new first ) day ...Monday...yeah!! Actually we have started the past month working on acclimating a loose school day routine and now we're going to plug more school stuff into it and polish it up. I was trying to avoid the shock of a sudden total change and the resistance that entails...trying to think ahead ... Every once in a while it actually works :):)
