First Day of School!

Well, today was our official first day of school.  Everything was ready, plans were made, and though it all went well, it didn't go according to my plans!  God's plan always trumps mine, thank goodness!
So, here are some pic's of the first day:)
To celebrate our first day of school, we had a BIG pancake breakfast this morning! YUMMO!
Benjamin was VERY happy to "start school" today:)  He even has his own backpack filled with goodies for him to do during the day:)
This surprise was the best, daddy was home for there first day due to rain.

That's me, the happy Mamma:)  Excited to start the day!

I put up a few posters in the dinning room to be helpful for the girls as well as to get that "school time feel".

I really like this one.  It has names for things that I sure don't remember learning.... but that's not saying to much!

Today the girls had a math video to work through.... oh how I wish I could have done math in a lazy boy back in the day!!! lol
The girls geography this year is SO cool.  We have this awesome book called 'Material World" and it goes through 30 countries.  It centers on one family in each country and has that family take EVERYTHING they own out of the house and set up in the front for a BIG picture.  It is AMAZING to see the differences in not only the things each family owns and DOESN'T own, but just the different cultures within the families, as well as the different statistics for each country.

An excited Kayla!

An excited Samantha!
I'm guessing getting this backpacks ( so cheap at walmart ) was a HUGE hit!  We gave them to them Sunday night and they got to see all the supplies inside.  They were SO EXCITED about these backpacks.... never stops amazing me the kinds of things my girls appreciate.  I just LOVE these ladies!
I hope all of you enjoy your back to school day!  GOD BLESS!
