Fourth Day Back At It

School that is. The first couple of days were a little rough getting back in to the groove. We still aren't getting up early enough to finish by lunch. We usually take a break for lunch then finish around 2:00. The first two days of math were not fun but the third day was much better and I anticipate today being good. I scheduled Fridays up with everything that I couldn't fit in to the schedule on Monday - Thursday. So today we will have picture study, nature study, drawing illustrations for her children's book that we have been working on all summer, personal development, math, spelling, and story starters. Looking forward to a different pace today with the school work. Normally our schedule involves math, science, history, literature, English, math, reading, etc. Next week Grace is going to a Anime Camp for two hours each day so I will schedule very lightly in the afternoon when she gets back to round out a 4 1/2 hour school day. Starting this early will give us the option to take a whole week off for Thanksgiving and two for Christmas without any worries. Also some extra days during the year when we really don't feel like getting up and doing school. The flexibility schooling at home is just awesome.

Good for you on starting early! I was hoping to do that, but it just isn't going to happen this year. Sounds like you are off to a great start!
