Back to School!



It's that time!  With school starting, I wanted to keep up with what I did the past 2 years and do a Back-to-School Interview.  (last year's here.  and 2 years ago found here.)


Parker:

I am __6___ years old.

The yummiest food to eat is: popcorn chicken

My favorite show to watch is: strawberry shortcake

I love when I get to read: Stuart Little

The coolest person on earth is: God

I am really super good at: running

My favorite color is: pink

The best place in the world to be is: home

When I grow up I want to: be an art teacher

If I could do one thing all day long it would be: playing with Payton

I really, really do not like to eat: chicken spaghetti

My best friend is: Payton

Jesus is: the best

When I was little I used to: cry all day

3 words that tell about me:  I love God

This year in school- I hope to learn: about Jesus




She had a great first day.  She came home, in fact, and told me that she wished her teacher could teach her 5 days a week because she doesn't really have that much fun at home with me when I teacher her (Parker goes to a university-model school where she goes to school 2 days a week and we homeschool 2 days a week).  Aaahhhhhhh!





Grace:



I am ___4___ years old.

The yummiest food to eat is: strawberries and rainbow cupcake

My favorite show to watch is: Rainbow Rocks (this is a My Little Pony movie that has yet to be released)

I love when I get to read: Stuart Little  (this is the book we are currently reading before bed right nowand it makes me so happy that they are loving it)

The coolest person on earth is: Mommy, Gramma, and Aunt Sis

I am really super good at: Math facts (?????)  So funny for her to say thisthis is something that Parker and I work onbut definitely still learning numbers with Grace.  Sweet girl.

My favorite color is: rainbow

The best place in the world to be is: Disney World

When I grow up I want to: be a singer

If I could do one thing all day long it would be: playing in the snow

I really, really do not like to eat: broccoli

My best friend is: Paisley & Payton

Jesus is: my favorite and I love Him

When I was little I used to: take baths and play with toys

3 words that tell about me: hugging people and kissing them


This year in school- I hope to learn: math





and when I asked for one together….


Grace and I attempted our first day of pre-K while Parker was at school.  Right now we are doing Confessions of a Homeschooler's Letter of the Week.  I hope to write more about this soon!


Once we finished up morning lessons and lunch…we took a quick trip to Hobby Lobby and the library to check out 'A' books.


During Nolan's afternoon nap…we baked cupcakes!  Our back-to-school cupcakes.  And Grace just soaked it up.  She kept asking, "Do I get to do this?"  And this?"  It was so fun for her to be able to do it all and not take turns.





I opted to make mini cupcakes….and this is the way to go!  And dangerous.  Because you can just pop one whole mini cupcake in your mouth.  Again.  And again.  And again.  The deal is…it's the perfect ratio of cake to icing.  And it's SO good.  Between the 5 of us…we ate 22 out of 48 for dessert after dinner.  Wow.

And there you have it.  The first day.

I'm going to be doing confessions of a homeschooler letter of the week with Abigail! We aren't starting until sometime next week though :)

How many days a week will you be working with Grace? Or, rather, how long have you spread out the program to last?

Love the back-to-school interviews and first day of school cupcakes. It just makes the day a little more special. I did not really do anything for our first day except take pictures and it just seemed like a normal day but with school, lol! Next year I will! I hope your school days at home go good since Parker really likes her teacher (which is always a great thing)!! I can't wait to see your post of Letter of the Week. I am doing a mix of that and God's Little Explorers with Hattie......when she is willing to work ;)
