First Day of School

We survived our first day of school. The kids were so excited, mostly about the fact that they have backpacks! Look how big my Noah has gotten this summer.

How cute are they?

No tears from Nathan and Rosie when we dropped them off. They couldn't wait to get settled into their classrooms! Mommy was the only one doing any blinking and sniffing. But, I am so grateful to have found a pre-school that will partner with us in continuing to bring up our children "in the nurture and admonition of the Lord".

Hard at work. While the little munchkins are at pre-school, Noah and I work on Bible, Math, History&Geography and Language Arts at our local library.

Anything that we don't manage to get finished at the library, we finish at home in the afternoon. Then, it's on to science. Here's Noah, experimenting with blending primary colors and recording his findings.

Right, I'm off to fix breakfast so that we're ready for Day 2!


  1. The kids look like they are having a blast in school.

    How did you do the bleeding colors? What a great Idea. I would love to do that with my son.

  2. We used paste food colors (about 1/2 tsp. to 1/4 c. water) to make red, yellow and blue colored water, then I filled alot of other little cups with 3-4 T. of water and allowed Noah to carefully mix his primary colors in the other cups to see what they made. Be careful with the paste food colors. They are a strong dye and will stain anything they touch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
