1st day of 2009-10 school year

Today was our first official day of schooling for the 2009-10 school year. Before mom got up for the day, both kids did some school work...without being told or asked. Surprise! Wouldn't that be nice if it continued throughout the year? Not holding my breath. ;-)

The kids have done very well with starting back up. I was honestly expecting some fussing. We took it a little slow today with some breaks here and there. Maybe that helped it go smoothly. Hmmm....

So today we did math, grammar, handwriting (M), science & lab, spelling, and art. In between they played, had lunch, and had a watermelon seed spitting contest.

Tonight we have our last night of family bowling league. The kids have gone back & forth about signing up for the homeschool bowling league this season. So we aren't sure if they will be adding that to their schedules.

Corey and I are trying to decide exactly what all we are doing with history this year. We are doing the middle ages but we also want to get some TN history in too. So, do we push through the middle ages for the 1st semester and do TN history the 2nd semester...or try to do them both at the same time over the year. To me that is just too confusing. Morgan voted for doing a semester of each.
