It started this morning with me getting up very early (7am) with the intentions of making a big breakfast to celebrate our first day. When I walked downstairs I saw my two youngest (the homeschool newbies) at their desks already doing their math! They woke up early with anticipation and wanted to get started even if mom was still asleep at the late hour of 6:30am. So, instead of making breakfast I went in and started to help with any questions they had and next thing you know sleepyhead older brother stumbled downstairs and into the schoolroom. I think it was about 8am at that point. I then decided to remove myself for a couple of minutes to put a quick baked oatmeal in the oven after I realized that we were out of eggs. Poor planning on my part. You can't make pancakes without eggs.
Needless to say, our day did not go as planned. We stayed in pajamas for school had unbrushed messy hair and finished extra early. I will take that! Not bad for a first day.
We even had a special visitor to the classroom. E brought her three dolls to class and also brought her guineau pig, Julee.
