This seemed like a good year to start school, and so we did. We took pictures of the student before starting our first lesson.
One of our projects was cutting eyes, noses and mouths from enlarged pictures of John, Joshua, and myself, and making puppets.
I wanted to start the year off with something special, something that we could do as a yearly tradition on the first day of school each year. I'd like to add a few more details to next year's kick-off, but this time around we ended up going to the library (something that will be turned into a weekly event), followed by an evening at the playground and a hot dog and marshmallow....cookout? <-- I'm agonizing over simple word choices; no wonder I am not getting anything written.
(Edit: I think the word I was looking for was "roast." But who really knows when I'm in this frame of mind.)
Joshua and Andre will be together a lot this year for school and play. Rona and I are partners of sorts in this whole schooling business. She has enriched my life in so many ways. (Now THAT is worth publishing. It's so true.)
First taste of a s'more.
Joshua's first taste:
I am so looking forward to the rest of this year! It's going to be a great adventure. But right now, I'm mostly just looking forward to sleep. Good night. :-)
