Last Friday was a Georgia tax-free day, so we hit the stores early to shop for the few school supplies that we still needed. Then we spent the afternoon sorting and organizing our K12 homeschool curriculum :)
I have to apologize to Sophie for this picture I snapped of her! I didn't realize her eyes were closed until I had it uploaded into my post, and since Blogger is so touchy, once a picture is there.....it stays!
I think she was reciting Shakespeare at the time ;)
So, while some of the big kids and I unpacked boxes, Emily entertained the little kids with a new puzzle!
And a couple of hours later, what started as mass chaos.....
finally turned into something much more manageable :)
Finding extra space in the room for all the new books was a challenge, but I wasn't too worried about it since I know we will soon be gone.....
Have I mentioned that we sold our house?! Maybe not! I forget what I put on Twitter & Facebook vs. what I put on my blog sometimes ;)
Anyway, yes, our house sold! And we feel like it was in the nick of time too as school has now started and the market has completely dried up. We have to be out on October 11th, so we have just over a month before our lives are (for the 2nd time in one year) boxed up and thrown on a moving truck!
But I'll fill in the moving details in another post.....back to homeschool!
This past Monday was our first day of school
Josh likes to work in the breakfast room while the little boys are upstairs in the school/play room. We seem to be off to a good start after our first week. I am enjoying the fact that there is no morning rush to get all the kids to school! I let them wake up when they're ready (usually around 7:30 or 8:00) and get started after they complete their morning routine. So some may start at 7:30 while others are starting closer to 9.
This week was spent getting familiar with the program, so we had some bumps along the way, but we survived and are looking forward to a trip to Bass Pro Shop tomorrow! We have to be out of the house for our home inspection for several hours, and that happens to be the one place we can spend an entire day and never get bored ;) But that means that the rest of today will be spent cleaning and scrubbing for the inspection and for the new homeowner (who has actually never seen the house and is traveling from Europe to see it for the first time tomorrow). Prayers for a smooth transition over the next couple of months MUCH appreciated!!!!!!!!
