First Day of School

We started school today - I can hardly believe summer is over. I had so many things I wanted to accomplish - most of which I never got around to doing!!

We started out with breakfast at Cracker Barrel. All three girls were up early - and Daphne really like to eat as soon as she is awake so we were at the restaurant by about 7:30!

Kevin drove separately so he could head to work right after breakfast and the girls and I headed home. Norah and Lucy made their beds, did a couple of little chores, and were anxious to get started on school work.

Here are some pics for today:

We started talking about being attentive (we are learning about a different character trait each week) today so the girls made animal ear headbands. We talked a lot about how you show someone that you are being attentive.
Daphne needed in on the action this morning. She sat with us a lot! She also pulled out her own books to look at and tried very hard to get the markers for herself!!

As a whole the day went really well - we will need to tweak things as we go but I am so thankful that this is what God wants for our family right now. I love the excitement on their faces as we do something new/fun and I love watching the light bulb click on as the girls learn something new!!
