First Day of School at Home

We had our first day of school at home on September 4th. It was a little later than what I had hoped for, but it took this long for me to feel ready.  (or should I say ready enough?)

Benjamin is starting his Kindergarten year and he is more. than. ready.  He loves school!
He also loves chocolate donuts!
Samuel is starting 3rd grade and does very well.  However, he is not as excited as Ben is.  (and he has a hard time not taking a cheesy photo)
He loves white sugar donuts.
Emma is in Pre-K.  Or in other words, she participates pretty much only when she wants to.  She actually loves doing school and insists on having her own work.
This was before her haircut.
My class with their first day of school donut breakfast.

A little better photo of Sam.
Silly girl.
This cat watched us the whole morning.
The view from my end of the table.  It's chaotic at times to keep everyone doing what they should.
Working on his geography.  He knows a lot about geography and learns new places each week.  Our focus this year is European geography.
She cut, colored and glued for about an hour.  I never could find the paper she was working on.  I think she cut it all up into little pieces.
He is very intent on his schoolwork and always asks for more to do.

 Cute chubby hands.
It was a successful first day.  It's certainly not what it's going to be, but it was a good start.  Hello 16th year of homeschooling.  :)
