Home-school Year Begun (and dealing with Expectations vs. Reality)


I started this post after our first week of school.  2013 school photos.
But, didn't write any of my thoughts.   
Thoughts about the year starting off shaky, 
with the expectations we all had about the school year 
colliding with the reality of each day.
But, on a similar note, my expectation of actually sitting down 
and writing out those thoughts didn't quite come in line with the reality.  
The reality that I never did that.
But, here are the photos of the kids, first day of school.
Home * September * 2013 


Kendall.  2 1/2 years old


Moira.  4 years old

Peyton. 5 years old



Gillian.  Almost 7 at this point



Anyway.  So.  There is the record of our school year beginning.  
With thoughts in my mind, but not much written.
So be it.

I can relate to this ALL too well!
I love when people ask my HOW I homeschool three while taking care of a baby. Um... because sometimes our school day IS taking care of baby :)
so funny.

I love, love, loved Kendall's dress and baby lag that was sagging. Totally adorable.

Adorable! Love Kendall's legwarmers!

Thanks for sharing photos of your four. We have Kayla in a private school that is two days on-campus and three days of homeschooling. It's a wonderful fit for our family - especially b/c it takes some of the planning off of my shoulders.

Homeschooling is crazy with a toddler in the mix, no? ;)
