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’re doing 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 (now known as CYT) 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. 🙂
Modern Art Exhibit
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.
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!
