Thoughtful About . . . Back to School!

I had a nice, insightful post planned for today. Filled with brilliance (ahem) and thought and pondering a scripture that jumped out at me. I was just beginning to delve into the contemplation required for it when an adorable little face appeared beside mine. Grinning. And chanting, "School, school, school."

Yeah, see, we decided we'd start the same day my niece did--today. But I kinda forgot to take into account that on the first day of school, I don't have to lasso my darling girl to her chair at 9 like I do later in the year--she's begging to begin at 6:30.



So . . . yeah. That's what my morning has been. =) Getting Xoe back into math and handwriting, introducing her new spelling book. And going over letters and numbers with Rowyn. Pulling out her reader and trying to figure out what in the world this diamond-diagram thing is they have in the copywork section of my curriculum. Convincing Rowyn that his reading lesson can wait just a minute while I read Xoe her spelling words. Needless to say, blogging has slipped just a bit this morning, LOL.

I promise you that wonderfully insightful post on next Thursday. And tell you it has to do with redemption, but an application of it I'd never considered until I read it earlier this week. And for now, back to school I go!

    1. I was pretty exhausted by the end of the day too, Tonya. And didn't quite get my word-count quota met for the day. Sigh.

  3. Have an awesome first day of school and school year! We are starting later this year, September 4. We started way early in August last year. But this year we are also doing preschool with our home daycare kids and I needed the extra time to get things together. I can't wait to hear more of your schooling adventures as the year goes by.

    1. We started after Labor Day last year, but I wanted her to be in her groove before I leave for conference this year, so it's easier for the "substitute teachers" (her papa and grandmothers) to take over while I'm away.

      And have fun with your new endeavors!!

  4. Yeah, we started this week as well, even though I'm still waiting for Calvert to send my fifth grade books. (Boy, are they organized.) I must say, though, Xoe's enthusiasm is something I wish you could bottle up and send to us. )We'd even pay for express shipping!)

    Have a great school year, Roseanna!

    1. Oh, if I could bottle it! Not only could I make a fortune, I could save some for when the novelty wears off and she starts asking, "Isn't it a snow day??" In September, that is. ;-)
