Our First Day of Homeschool!

This year we are taking a different journey with our two oldest boys.  Austin is in 7th and Xander in 5th.  Previously we sent them to a fantastic private Christian School but due to financial strains we had to come up with something different.  I know some might turn to public school but I did not feel that to be a great option in the are we live in.  Especially with our oldest, who would have been in Jr High.  I truly believe this is God's Will for our family this year.  Lots of prayers and planning went into this decision.

Ok now on to some happy stuff!!

I made this sign for the boys  to surprise them when they woke up. 

We have a very small space for our school area, which is in our kitchen.  (I'll post my organization project and space sometime soon.)  So I wanted somewhere to put up their artwork or papers they were proud of.  If I did the fridge it would have been covered in one day. (for my crafty followers:  I used my cricut and Locker talk , Everyday Paper Doll Cartridge, and Cuttin Up for the Font)

Okay onto the pictures.  We took them in the same place we always do.  I made the boys get dressed that morning and go outside.  John joked about loading them in the car and driving them around the block but we didn't do that.  Dad went and got them donuts from Dunkin for a special morning treat. 
5th Grader!

7th Grader!

All in all it was a great day and a great week.  I'm so excited to see what God has for us this year.  I love seeing my kids grow and learn.  I am learning too!  My personal favorite subject is History and the boys are loving their Science curriculum.
