Summer School

A few months ago, I made the decision to home school my girls.  Since that time I’ve been preparing and today was our official first day of homeschooling.  Yes, while kids in public and private school are getting out for the summer, we’re just starting.  However, we’ll be doing a full year program which means we’ll be taking a lot of breaks during the school year.

Lili was so excited about this day that she’s been counting down and both she and Naomi could hardly wait to start this morning.

I’m sure you’re wondering how it so I’ll fill you in.

My plan was to begin at 9:00 and we were on target until we heard thunder.  How could a little thunder possibly interfere? Well let me tell you.  I have 2 little girls and 2 dogs that are afraid of storms which sent all 4 of them into anxiety mode.  It took me about 20 minutes to get everyone settled down and we were finally on our way.

As I expected, today was more of a learning experience for me than the girls.  Not that they didn’t learn something, but I definitely learned what I need to do differently tomorrow.

Overall, it wasn’t a bad start and I’m sure we will have good and bad days along the way as we get everything figured out.  Overall, I’d have to give today a B for Better than I expected 🙂


  1. Yea!! The first day is always the hardest. You guys will slide into a rhythm that works for you. And then you’ll toss that routine by the wasteside to take advantage of some natural wonder. Felicidades Maestra!

  2. Had to laugh!;) Flexibility can be a blessing or a curse:) Sometimes we won’t get started till 10:00!! Stresses my “Anal Annie” personality, but it’s GOING to happen…things WILL come up to interfere…so relax, don’t sweat it…:)

  3. We’ve also just started and I’m beginning to think that this entire first year is going to be more of a learning experience for me than anything else. Wishing you well!

    • I agree Mud Hut Mama! We now have 2 days under our belts and Day 2 was better because of what I learned from Day 1. I can only imagine how much I will have learned by the end of the year 🙂 We’ll have to stay in contact and share experiences, what’s worked, what hasn’t, and how it’s going.
