This year, D-man and A-girl are both attending the local college prep high school that was started by homeschoolers. The beauty of this school to me, is two-fold: They only attend class 2-3 times a week (so I still get to see them a lot!), and it is a college prep school (hard classes with high expectations!).
D-man....11th grade......ignoring the woman who got up early and made him a hot breakfast for the first day of school, saying hello (and, I am sure, other mushy things) to J-girl on her first day back to school too. (They don't attend the same school.....poor things.)
A-girl with her slightly nervous grin.....9th grade.
I had originally planned on starting our home school students on the same day....but we got home late Saturday night/early Sunday morning....Sunday was my birthday.....and I am just not that organized....so the other 4 got another week of summer break. Really though, considering A-girl and D-man started school on August 4th, the other kids still started earlier than a lot of people!
Rainman was off on Monday, so we could co-teach on the first day of school.
L-girl, as usual, was very self-sufficient and hit the books hard while I was still sipping my coffee!
And, you may have seen a preview of this in some of my other pictures....
Yes, she started Kindergarten this year....how can that possibly be? I also realize it is time to change her (and the other kids') picture on my sidebar...she is not really my baby anymore, is she?!?
