Actually, it's just me grinding & halting.
The littles were chomping at the bit to get going at *school* again, so i finally gave up on waiting for the calendar to say September & got going. i'm grateful that i planned out our year in the spring, so i knew what we were doing & it was just a matter of us sitting down & *doing* it. The resources were purchased (almost all of them), the supplies were stocked, the schedules planned & my little ones saw no reason to delay.
They decided that 9 am was the time. They were all sitting around the table (even Gage) in his highchair - & each had a binder in front of them. Someone had even thoughtfully placed my history books at my place at the table.
The timer went off at 8:59 & they started calling me to come...
i walked in & hooted, "Gooooood mooooorning, Children!! Who's excited for the new school year?" & to my surprise & delight was met with a table full of cheering little ones.
i love summer break - that it allows us to enjoy our too brief warm season - & that when we start back, we're excited, refreshed & ready for more.
i *know* that we will all have days where we don't feel like having the stellar attitudes that were displayed today & that it won't be as much fun to blog about those days... but yesterday - Day 1 - was a beautiful beginning & i'm ready to quit digging in my heels & run with the littles as we begin our homeschooling journey for 09/10.
