Today was our first day of school! Woo hoo! We had a crazy, busy summer with graduating one child and marrying off another. We took a little extended break the last three weeks to recharge and gear up for another fantastic school year. It is so hard to believe that we are starting our 6th year of homeschool! Each and every year I am more and more thankful for the opportunities we have with home education. We had a totally rad first day of school, and I will share all about it on Thursday. (And it will explain why I just used the phrase "totally rad".) But, for today, I will just share a couple of photos of my two amazing students. Eli is now in the 6th grade and Brynne is in the 5th grade. Let the school year begin!!! It's going to be a Journey to Excellence . Come along!
