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 🙂
