Yesterday we had our first sit down day of school!
We always start our first day of school with a little tradition.
Tim takes all the kindergarten and up aged kids out to breakfast and to officially "drop them off" at school (this is the first time it has been more than Addie participating).
We love it because it sort of makes school official, special and sets the tone...
Plus it is just a fun way to kick off school!
Tim also has the kids pick our flowers for their teacher. Me.
Every year I taught in traditional school Tim would go out the night before and buy me flowers and sneak them in to my class and have them on the desk with a note of encouragement and love.
Now he gives them to me, hands over the children and gives me a kiss!
Sweet, sweet man.
Then we take "class" and school pictures.
It is homeschool... so we try to keep it real too!
Here is our 2012/13 school photos...
