Back-to-School {Our Week in Photos}

Dylan is the first up and already working on his school.

Checking the boys out at the end of the week.

We started our row of How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World ~ more on that next week.

Jordan had his 1st Cross Country meet on Friday ~
He took 5th out of 106 JV boys!

Read-aloud with Pop before bed.

Snuggle bugs. :)

(I was going to do a black and white photo essay, but I was having a hard time pulling it together, so thus the random shots of our week in progression from morning to night, but on different days!)

On day 1, we moved quickly from subject to subject while Bo was sleeping so we had a pile of books to put away at the end of the day. Day 2 was similar. By day 3, I was thinking, "We can do this." By day 4, I was thinking, "This is too easy." *lol* Day 5 was a breeze. The boys did their independent work, we had our parent meeting and I checked the boys out. 

Looking back, I realized that all three boys' Science (atoms and molecules) and History (Ancient Rome) tied together.  Love how that worked out. 

It was a great week. :) And I am hopeful that I can jump back in with two feet and include our Five in a Row lessons!  Today, we are getting things caught up around the house and then I hope to sit down this evening and plan for our week (and next few rows!).
