Our Firetruck

On Tuesday we are going to the Fire Station for a field trip. Mason is SO excited to get to go on a field trip with the "big kids". Since we have so many boxes around here from moving I decided to use one of them to make a firetruck for the kids. It was a good project for them to work on. Mason & Mya are the ones that mostly worked on it. We finished it up yesterday afternoon and read a story about a "Fire Fighter". The kids had a great time making their fire truck. Here are some pictures of it.

First Day of School...

We aren't quite ready to start school full force but we have started with just a few subjects to slowly get ourselves into a routine. After all summer of not being in any type of routine we've decided to ease our way into this school year. Trying to make the adjustment as smooth as possible for all of us. (Mommy included).

This year we have Jordan who is in 2nd grade, Mya is in Kindergarten, Mason is in preschool and Gracie is just along for the ride!

The kids did really well working on their work. I'm so excited to get this year rolling. (a slow roll..but still excited). Sometimes it seems SO strange to me that I'm homeschooling. I'm SO happy I did though. I have a feeling it's going to be a GREAT year. I'm also excited to be a part of a local homeschooling group. We've already went on one field trip with them and on Tuesday we'll be going to the fire station!
Here are some pics of the kids doing their school work on their first day of school.
