I was a little worried about juggling teaching the kids, but the transition was really smooth. They have enough independent work that it was easy to have them do that while I was teaching the other. We did all our our math and language (spelling, grammar, writing, etc) in the morning. We went to Panera for lunch and then to Chuck E Cheese to celebrate day 1 with a little skeet ball. When we got home they got their pillow pets and we gathered in the den for a combined history and science lesson, followed by some flashcards of the states/capitals and the presidents.
All in all, it was a wonderful day 1. Praying that we continue to enjoy homeschooling and each other. That we appreciate this opportunity we have and that we learn a lot.
