first day of school

The first day flew by, and everyone had a great day! Even little Benny who obviously wasn't as interested in the lesson but listened intently until this happened.
The girls were both very happy with the day and the schedule I set up for them. I was pleased with how smoothly everything went as well! 

They do their individual work first which includes math, language arts, phonics, reading, and braille, and then we finish the day with the work they can do together. This includes geography, science, history, religion, and health. We do a nature study, and right now we're focusing on specific mammals and where they are found. 

It's working out really well, and I'm hopeful that they don't start getting bored, and giving me a hard time.
But. Enough about that. Here's our back to school photos!

These were taken at the end of the day, so don't mind the messy kids. Hanna didn't want her picture taken, so I had to deal with the one of her laughing hysterically as she tried to run away! 

After these were taken, we kept the tradition alive by heading out for ice cream with Mom, Aunt Patti-Lynn, Jamie and the girls, Kristyn and the kids, and Michelle and the kids. Dad even made it this time!
Hurray for a successful first day!
