The teacher and her students
Before you look at the 1st day of school pictures of the children, I want to let you know that they were given permission to wear whatever they wanted. I think this is a cute way to let their little personalities shine.

We had the children sit at the table after their pancake breakfast and hide their eyes while we grabbed their 1st day of school goody bags. The bags were filled with school supplies, bookworms (gummy worms), bubbles, punch ball balloons, and tootsie pops.
We headed out for a nature walk this morning, which is something we plan to do every Monday morning and hopefully a few more walks will pop up throughout the week. We found some Queen Anne's Lace, one of our favorites!
We spent some time at the dining room table doing some work, but my favorite part of the day was reading chapter one of "Little House in the Big Woods." The children got a kick out of what Laura and Mary used as a ball (a pig's bladder)! We also started our Lapbook to go along with our "Little House" studies today. I can't wait to share more with you as our lessons progress!
This week's Scripture memory is 1 Corinthians 10:31 - So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." Lord, may our school year bring you glory!
