Goodbye Summer, Hello Homeschool

We had big ideas for what we should do this summer.
I am happy to report as Labor Day nears its end and our first day of school dawns tomorrow that we did most of what we set out to do... 
and most of what we did not can move to our school year to-do list.

Bella is beginning Kindergarten and Tommy is doing an informal Pre-K along with her.
But there will be lots of  time soon for reading, writing, and arithmetic....
right now I want to drift and dwell on our beautiful summer.


We had little Miss Sunshine's first summer and her first dip in the pool.... the love affair begins.



We made new friends... we learned its hard to say goodbye... we learned to write letters.

We strutted our stuff poolside....

We had chicken fights with preschoolers and got photo bombed...

We soaked up the love and the sunshine....





We found Daniel's happy place and were excited to see it involved a restraint system....



We played in the sandbox....

and the tree house....



We learned to roll over...

We enjoyed some zooming around the patio...

We played with our cousins and had our first sleepover!

When we couldn't make it poolside we improvised....
Most importantly we had each other and we had fun. 
I barley scratched the surface here.... still have tons of photos from our trip to Idlewild and the Farm Show. But it is my first school night in about seven years and I need some rest! 
More about how homeschooling is going for us soon.
