Our First Day of School!

Good morning! Well, I did it! I finally started school for these guys! Hahaha! Whew!

Me and the nine sillies began lessons bright and early Monday morning. We're jumping in full Charlotte Mason (a method of homeschooling that is literature-based...also called Classical Education) and loving it!

This right here. This is the last picture I'll ever take of the nine of them on their first day of school. Lynzie graduates this spring! I told them to make funny faces...

We had a happy morning exploring outside. It was nice and cool but very sunny and pretty out.

Not sure what these two were doing... Maybe they still had a little Oregon tree-hugger in them after our summer out west.

Sweet Kynthia is SO excited about school this year. She's a Kindergartener!

A friend posted these leaf pictures on her Facebook a week or so ago and I thought they'd make for a great scavenger hunt. The kids had a blast looking for the different leaves, acorns, and nuts around the neighborhood.

Brenna was really the star of the hunt---she found many of the leaves that matched up perfectly with the ones on her sheet!

It's only Wednesday morning but I'm sort of feeling like our little gnome already! (I named him Eldon.) One hand to my brow, but still smiling!

Hope everyone is having a beautiful week!


  1. LOVE the scavenger hunt idea, and that ALL the kids were involved together.

  2. As a teacher I am so amazed that you homeschool and differentiate instruction for all of your kids! That's fantastic. Thanks for hosting, I always enjoy your link up!

  3. Thanks for the party Sarah! & kudos for homeschooling all your kids.

  4. That looks like a great group of school kids! And a fun first day!

  5. Yay! Congratulations, Sarah! You're off and running and what a crew to follow you on teaching and learning adventures this year! God bless you richly as you pursue your calling to develop each of them in their calling. Would love to be a fly on the wall in some of your classes!

  6. Thank you for hosting! And wow-- I always have so much respect for people homeschooling. To me that takes an exceptional level of multitasking. But they look super happy to start! 😊


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I read each one of them and love to respond back to those who visit! Please consider signing up for EMAIL NOTICES so you'll have a reminder of our weekly HOMEMAKING PARTY---and more! Have a wonderful day!
