Your schedule is ready (I know), you're prepared (I know), and you're ready (I know) to start LHFHG and LHTH!!! :lol: HOORAY - hop in the saddle and take off - you are in for a wonderful ride! :) I'm excited for you to start - remember though, you have all year to do this - so give yourself an adjustment period. I always have to remind myself of that! :D

Hi Mommyofgirls!

I know that you and your girls are really going to enjoy your day tomorrow! (I am looking forward to your report! :wink: )

Just be prepared for lots and lots of fingerplay songs and rhymes in motion to be repeated throughout your house long after school time is over!
I remember Danielle continuously singing:

"Adam, can you believe, God made the animals and you and me."
"Adam can you believe..."

Thanks for the prayers!

We DID do some Sonlight pre/k last year with some k math and language arts thrown in, but i had a baby and a 2 yo, and it was "just preschool" so i didn't feel the pressure of "doing school" every day. this year is a bigger deal for us - we have talked it up as kindergarten with my 5 yo (many of her friends are going to "away school" as we call it), so tomorrow seems like a big deal to us. it is the culmination of a seed planted in my heart when my daughter was 8 months old. ("Really, Lord...homeschooling?! Please tell me you are kidding!!") :lol: As it turns out, He wasn't. :wink:

And off we go!!! 8)

Our official start is today, too. Ds has been doing Beyond for 7 units, but today we add his high school sister to the mix. Since we finished Little Hearts, school has been hit or miss due to it being bonus/keep skills sharp time, but now, it's buckle down and do school every day time. Everyone have a great day! I have a couple of changes to make to dd's schedule, put in some laundry, and then we're off!

Ladies,

How exciting that so many of you are beginning this week. I pray that you are settling in and getting over the hump that the beginning of school can bring (although you all look much more organized than I typically am when I start school)! :D

I am VERY impressed! Enjoy your week! :D

Blessings,
Carrie
