Week 1 - Done!

Well, we made it through the first week of school. The girls haven't started all subjects yet but they will this week. Sweet Pea had a bit of a misunderstanding/miscommunication about her online government class and when assignments were due. She was stressed and working late to get things turned in and thought they were late so what was the point of turning them in...as it turned out, she wasn't the only one AND her current events report was the one the teacher held up as an example of how she wanted them done. Big sigh of relief! Rosie Jane starts her history/lit class this week, hopefully it'll go well. I think it'll be interactive enough for her that she'll enjoy it. We have a busy year ahead of us but I'm looking forward to it. The best thing I've heard in a while was something Rosie Jane posted on facebook this morning: I survived the first week of school! Luckily I have a great teacher to keep me focused. I'm happy that she thinks I'm a great teacher and wanted to announce it to her little part of the world.

A Last First Day of School

It's the last first day of school for my oldest. She's a senior this year and will likely be off to college next fall. I'll still get some sort of first day of school picture but it won't quite be the same.

It's been a long day here, getting back into the swing of things, but I think it'll be a good year. We need to get over the hump of college applications with Sweet Pea then see if she can't get a lot done before snowboarding season starts. She's hoping for early snow again this year but that means a long season, which is good and bad.

The Senior
The Sophomore

Here's to a good year!
