first day of (monday) school

Today was the much-anticipated beginning of Monday school for our homeschooling co-op.  The older boys had chosen their classes carefully.  My pre-k (!) son was looking forward to another Monday school experience, and my daughter was excited about her "big girl" class.

Here they are, all bright and shiny and breakfasted.

The baby and I went, too.  I get to help in a First Aid class this term, and I am very excited about that.  I've forgotten everything I learned when I was certified way back when (before I had children!).  Not knowing what to do in various emergency situation has always left me feeling anxious, especially with a crawling baby prowling around the house in search of choking hazards.

In addition to helping in the First Aid class, I'll be a floater.  I've never been a floater before, and aside from the lack of predictability (will I have 2nd period off or 3rd period?  what to wear that would work for any and all classes I might help in?  when will I be able to go nurse my baby?), I'm looking forward to experiencing other classes and meeting even more people.

It was a short day today, more of a practice run than a regular, full morning.  But we went, we saw, we did it.  We had a great time, and we're really looking forward to the rest of the fall term!
