|"To the new school year!"|
There were candles and smiles...
There were homemade cinnamon donuts.
There was apple cider.
And, of course, there were children. What would homeschool be without children, after all?
|Gabriel, tot school|
|Kyle, 3rd grade|
|Ben, 5th grade|
Of course, there were other things. Not-quite-so happy things...there was poop on the floor and there was interrupting. There was an assignment that needed to be re-done, and there was (just a little) whining.
And of course, there was a toddler. 'Nough said about that.
But those are not the memories I want to carry away from this day. So here is my back-to-school post, with the happy photos (you wouldn't want a picture of poop on the floor anyway, wouldya?), along with hopes for a happy, healthy, richly fulfilling school year.
