School's In!

Today was our first official day of homeschooling in Grade 2.

Did I just say Grade 2? Where does the time go? Yikes!

We had a hectic day. Dwayne's grandparents showed up unexpectedly last night. It was our first school day today. Dwayne came home just before lunch and said that he had to go to out of town for business and would be leaving just around supper.

All the excitement was a little hard on my new Grade 2er. He wanted to be visiting. And he desperately wanted to go with Dwayne - which he would normally be able to do.


The mean ol' schoolmarm laid down the law and said, "We're sticking to the plan."

So instead of partaking in the excitement, Dylan learned a new memory verse, did some copy work, made a map of our town, sang O Canada, read to me, was read to, got his feet wet in grammar and learned a little more phonics than he knew when he woke up this morning.

We ended the day with a trip to the newly renovated playground down the street.

Tomorrow we'll add science and math to the schedule.

'Night. *yawn*
