Today was our first day of school!
And (gulp) sixth grade...
|We always measure them on the first day of school and this child is 5' 1''. Hello? Eleven years old!|
|2011--the gap in their heights seems to be getting bigger|
|2008--yep. I was right.|
|Cute right? Thank you Pinterest!|
|Found some "Back to School" cookies at W-mart too!|
While Little Bit and I reviewed some math...
Anyway, she was pleasantly surprised with her Sonlight History. And boy did she love sitting on the couch by me, coloring while I read to her. Wish I had a picture of that, but...I was busy reading. We also read on my bed today and she ate it up.
Sweetheart, on the other hand, was surprised by how much work she had! She didn't complain, but she was working hard! Sitting in the living room may not work. Tomorrow she's going to try somewhere else.
|Work spread all around...|
So, even though Sweetheart is supposed to do Zoology more independently this year, we did it together today and enjoyed it. I'm thinking we may just do it together--it's the only subject they would do together this year and I think I should cherish the times they can do things together.
I was very pleased with today. It's going to be a lot of work, but we were prepared and the girls worked hard. I LOVE, LOVE , LOVE the weekly assignment sheets from Sonlight and the fact that I have the first 6 weeks basically ready. Of course there will be some Sunday prep, but I feel ready for the next 6 weeks anyway.
It was a good day and it will be, I hope, a really good year!
