First Day of School!
Our new home school room (the room right at the top of our upstairs) is fabulous. It has a lot of space and a wonderfully big window. It also keeps the mess off the kitchen table which is where we used to school. Mia thrives on structure and is happy to begin a new school year. She likes to know exactly how a day is going to unfold. The night before school she needed to know the day plan-down to details such as brushing our teeth before we school. I've incorporated 'story time' into our day, to discipline myself to nurture the appreciation of written work, in my children. It's easy to sluff it off due to laundry and other mundane activity but I think reading is a good thing to be intentional about.
