This year marked a new tradition for us – taking first day of school pictures! Pinterest was a big inspiration, as well as joining in the ihomeschoolnetwork link up as well!
We normally do special things to mark a new school year. The children get to pick out some new school supplies, one year we had family over for a special dinner.
This year I made a special breakfast to start out our day. The children enjoyed it a lot!
I can’t believe I have a third grader this year!
Israel is full of energy, so I can actually picture him as a firefighter when he grows up!
Carrianna is really more Kindergarten level, but I didn’t want her be in Kindergarten at 4 and 1st grade at 5, so I put her at Pre- School still for the sign. She was very torn between putting down that she wanted to be an ambulance driver or a mama, but the mama occupation eventually won out. 🙂
My three students!
Breakfast complete with special dishes from Blessings Unlimited! Homemade Cinnamon Rolls, scrambled eggs and fruit.
Here is a picture of all the children with the teacher. 🙂 This was taken at lunch time and one of the children was melting down at that point. You will notice the button on my oldest, I’m rewarding the student who has the best attitude and works the hardest by lunch time with wearing a “Superstar Student” button. They love getting to see who wears it each day!
