Our last week before school begins. Wow. Summer flew by fast! While most moms might be getting their kids on a schedule (go to bed early, wake up early) to prepare for the school year, I did the opposite. I let the kids stay in their pajamas all day if they desired, we watched movies late into the night (which is about 9 or 10 o'clock for them), and played all day. Okay, they played all day. I finalized homeschool lessons and continued working on our school room.
We start tomorrow!!!!! Bridget will be starting a formal first grade curriculum and George will be working on some preschool activities and joining big sister whenever something we're learning interests him. Liam will have free reign of all the toys in the living room, although I have a feeling he'll be more happy pulling books off the bookshelves and fussing at my feet wanting to be held.
Everything else is ready to go. The most exciting thing for the kids has been our new supply tote. We have every color of pencils, markers, and crayons imaginable, and lot's of writing pencils, erasers, scissors, tape, and glue; you name it and we've got it! Their eyes get so big when they see it, as they both cannot wait to dig in and create something. We'll be using it for just about every subject.
