First Day Back to Homeschool 2013!

Even though we have been doing some schoolwork all summer (mostly reviews), today was the first official day of our 2013/2014 school year.  I have found that is works out much better for us to ease back into a full schedule.  So we usually start with one subject and gradually increase so that by the week after Labor Day we are back up to a full schedule.  Usually I start off with morning schoolwork, but getting out in the morning and working right after lunch has been going so well for us over the summer, I decided we would start off with afternoon school work.  Today the children all dove into their brand new Math U See books.  Well, except for Christian and Chelsea.  Chelsea started Algebra 2 in January so she is still working through it, and Christian was so excited when his books came a few weeks ago that he has already been doing a math lesson everyday.

Since today was our official start to the new year, I took pictures of each of the children in the same spot we do every year, so I can see how much they grow and change throughout the year.
