The first day of school! We started this year the same day as our public schools did. Today went really great! We woke up and did our morning routine and then got right into school.
We finished around 11/11:30, which is always nice! It allows me to get things done on my own to do list. Overall, the first day of school was awesome! The girls did so well and I’m so proud of them.
Day 2! Again, we had a great day. Today we dived more into our curriculum and figured out a great routine that works for all 3 of us! It might not last but it’s working right now and that’s all that matters.
So far everything is going well. No fighting, no issues. Ellie has been extra clingy & whiny but that’s to be expected when you’re dealing with toddlers. Lol! I’m spending more time with her after her nap & school is done, so hopefully that’ll help!
We finished our day around 12 and I made lunch and then jumped right into my own assignments. I’ve been slacking really bad and it’s biting me in the ass this week.
I can share more about my planner if anyone would like me to. It’s a really simple but VERY functional planner. I’m enjoying using it and it’s keeping me on track!
The end of week one! 35 weeks to go… but who’s counting. Lol. Today started off on the wrong foot but we turned it back around and the rest went fine. Today was Autumn’s first vocabulary/spelling lesson of the year – we only do them on Fridays for now. It might get integrated into the week more often, we will see how it goes for a couple of weeks.
Fi has had an awesome week! She’s very excited for Monday to come so she can get back to school work! I wonder how long this excitement will last? So far it’s lasted all of preschool, kindergarten, and the first week of first grade!
Today, like all week, we finished around 11:30. I think as we move through the review and get into new topics we will have longer days, which can be expected, and I’m fine with that. I’m willing to take as much time as they need to learn and feel good about the topics they cover.
How was your first week of school – whether it was in person, hybrid, virtual, or homeschooling?
I hope that everything has gone well for all of you! I know in our area servers for the public schools had some issues at the beginning of the week but hopefully that will all get fixed, too!
Until next time..
