We started back to school today. We started the day off with a yummy breakfast of coffee cake, bacon, and strawberries. I saw this post over at Shower of Roses and knew I just had to do some of my own:
The kids were really excited and pleased with their "pencils."
Definately a good way to sweeten them up for the first day!
I think we got off to a pretty good start. There was a moment---liz was repeatedly asking for a workbook, Nick was being a tornado (shoes were flying), Peter was crying, an older boy had said something mean to a younger boy and that boy was crying and the older one was in trouble, and another boy was asking for help---when I thought, "is it too late to register for school?" But, the moment passed, it always does, and we were able to complete all of our work, mostfully joyfully! Whew!
