Our First Week of School

 This was our first week of school and it went pretty well! We stayed pretty much on schedule. The workbox system was great! They really liked it which I was thrilled about! It took away a little of the stress since I wasn't bouncing between them both the entire day!  This was our introduction week and we have one more week like this. Then we get to study different countries! I'm so excited about that. We study the country, eat a meal from that country, learn a song about them and pray for the missionaries there. What more could you ask for? We even had some sweet people bring us back money from other countries that they got for us when they were on their missionary trips these past few weeks. Whohoo! 
The boys on their 1st day of school...August 22nd 2011.

First they opened their gifts of school supplies from us.
We were so happy when the weather took a break and turned down the temperature a few degrees. The great thing about homeschooling is we finished up early and were able to go outside for some science and nature study!
This week we were doing Nature Study in the pond!

Aybrin made all of these cute people out of modeling clay by himself this week!

We still had time to do our chores and get rewards from them. Janiece and I made these awesome chore charts this past summer!

Eleesia realizing that mud doesn't feel that great!

Can you see Essa?

Enoch said "I'm stuck. I need to get lighter" then proceeded to throw off his backpack. LOL!

It's also been cool enough to hang our the laundry... mid 90's! whohoo!

We made paper mache globes which we need to paint. This is our introduction to the world geography we will study this year.
Asher making his "A"'s out of money after we made the date from money.

Look at those looks of concentration!       

I hope you guys all have a great week this week. We hope too as well!
