We started back to school this week! So far, so good. I’m figuring out some things I’ll need to do to adjust the schedule. We also started swim lessons (for 6 kids, 4 days a week this week and next). It’s my 3-year-old’s first ever swim class. I found a swim school that I LOVE, called Foss Swim School. If you join, tell them Gena Mayo referred you!
We also started Spotlight drama classes for the 5 oldest kids. I woke up Monday morning with a job offer to be the Spotlight class supervisor (question-answerer, snack-seller, door-locker), so I’m now doing that! I think it will pay for maybe one kid’s class. 🙂
On Tuesday we took a short field trip to a nearby museum to see a Modern Art Exhibit. Two of the most famous paintings you can see above (by Picasso and Chagall). I’m not much into modern art, but I still want the kids to know a bit about it. Here is a link to a few activites and some of the paintings we saw. (The link might expire soon since the exhibit ends this next weekend.)
Be sure to see our First Day of Homeschool Pictures and the giveaway of your choice of educational product from Flash Kids.
The 3 oldest kids have the Bible Bee competition this Saturday. They have done an excellent Bible Study on 1 John all summer, as well as memorizing a number of Scripture passages.
My oldest son is playing tackle football this year and had his first ever scrimmage yesterday. Praying for his safety!
And one more thing, if you’re a blogger (or you want to be), you will learn so much from this blogging class that only costs $5 until August 31!
