Our summer ended last week and no one in our house seemed to mind one bit. For my boys, the novelty of summer vacation wore off about mid July. They missed their friends, their teachers, and the comfort that goes along with a school schedule.
This year we had two back-to-school pros in the house. Both the boys woke up excited for the first day without a drop of nervousness from either of them.
Of course it wouldn’t be the first day of school without mom taking a picture on the front porch step! And just for your viewing pleasure I included the previous years all the way back to J’s kindergarten year. What a difference 4 years makes!
We arrived at school early so we could take a tour of the classrooms. J’s classroom is in the cozy little cabin again.
His teacher Mrs. B did a great job setting up their little classroom! I love the big table they will all be studying at this year. We feel so blessed to be apart of our parent/tutor homeschooling co-op!
The first day of school means we all gather (moms, dad, friends, grandparents, aunts & uncles) to pray over the teachers and children.
The classes and their teachers are introduced while everyone cheers.

This is G with Mrs. S and his classmates
G at his desk. Mrs. S who worked to hard this summer to make G’s classroom to warm and inviting!
This is already shaping up to be a great year! The kids are enjoying their classroom time and the schooling they do at home with me. It’s a lot of hard work for all of us, but the reward is seeing my children thrive, forming close friendships, and seeing them really excited about the things they are learning. I know all too well, that before I even blink, I will be writing a last-day-of-school post.
September is almost here and we are enjoying a long weekend celebrating my Mom’s 60th birthday!
