This week it was that time of year for school to start again, with a twist! We decided to homeschool. This is also the first year having 4 kids in school. It may seem a little crazy, OK, maybe a lot crazy, but it's been good. We have just felt a shift in our family and we needed a change. We want more time with our kids, teaching them, loving them, & playing with them! It kind of felt like our time together had turned into a chore list after school: get homework done, eat dinner, get ready for bed! Then start the rush all over the next day. Some days may be stressful, but I really enjoy my kids and want to have the best experience we can while they are at home with us. I have more I could say, but that kind of sums up our "Why we are homeschooling" question.
Talmage is a 5th grader, Grant is a 4th grader, Sandra is a 2nd grader, and Mhari is a Kindergartner!
Here are just a few pictures of our first day together.

I'm sure there will be lots more photos of our fun together! Our co-op group starts next week so that will add some weekly fun to our activities!
