First day of school!

Jonathan was so excited about his first day of Kindergarten.

We decorated and filled his very own school box - pencils, paintbrushes, tape, glue, scissors, etc.

He chose to start out by learning our weekly folk song: A Tisket, A Tasket, and then illustrating it. Then a page of handwriting. So far he's done three or four pages of math-u-see - I've lost track, because he took them with him during quiet time and periodically hands me another one, "all done!" What else...oh, we read a BOB book, too.

The littles colored and then added stickers to their artwork. After that, they were very entertained by the puffballs! Thomas is getting better at sorting by color, and Siah just likes throwing them up in the air. :)

Quiet time just ended. Jonathan came running out and asked "can we do some more school now?"

I'd call that a pretty good start. :)
