Back to School.

We started back to school 2 weeks ago.  I can't believe it has been two whole weeks already but here is our 1st day back pic.  Patrick--8th grade, Nicholas--2nd grade, Elizabeth--4th grade, Caroline--PreK, Peter--K, Jacob--6th grade.  We were missing Nathan for our first official day back, he was at work and didn't start until the next week.  Nathan is in 10th grade this year.  Crazy!  I look at this picture and I think they all look so old! 

Mom tries to make school fun but apparently, I'm not succeeding.

Mainly, it has been going well.  With a couple tweaks here and there, I think we are off to a good start.  We have a couple who are reluctant to do anything (as usual) and a couple who want to do it all in one day (hello, Peter....we know you love your math book, but....).  If anyone has been doing the most complaining about schoolwork, it has been MOM.  Mom just wants to have fun.  But, alas, someone has gotta steer this ship and I guess Mom is just the person to do it.  ;)

Now peruse the pictures of idyllic homeschool life.  Ah, the rare moments we capture on screen because they are just that...rare.  And the pictures are much quieter, haha.
