For most people the first day of school is sometime in the vicinity of 1 September (give or take a few weeks). For my oldest daughter, her first day of school was today.
Today we started Kindergarten. No, she didn’t walk into a classroom as the new kid half-way through the school year, she walked into our living room just like she does every morning. She got some phys ed in while mommy during her workout, watched a little Disney Junior while mommy cleaned up. Then she and her teacher (mommy) sat down on the couch with her text books and mommy’s laptop and went through our lessons. When she needed to write to complete a couple of assignments, we moved to the breakfast table.
Baby girl sat with us in mommy’s lap and listen to the stories, listen to the lessons, and interjected her babble from time to time. L busied himself in another room with a toy. When the crayons came out for crafts time, he joined us and drew us a lovely picture of… well I have no idea what it was supposed to be. Mostly, I was just happy he didn’t EAT the crayons!
Once we had finished our main lessons for the day it was just about time for lunch and nap/quiet time so she and her brother played while I fixed lunch. Yep, school was done before lunch.
After nap/quiet time, she asked to get out her knitting! Mommy finally got the chance to share with my passion for knitting and teach her how to knit! It will take some time and I now have another thing on my to-do list, as I promised her a project bag of her very own, so that will be my next project.
I have a number of paperbacks, most of which are signed, to giveaway. Over the between now (11 Mar 2017) and 31 Mar 2017, every comment on the blog (this post and all other new posts), will be entered to win 1 of these paperbacks. There are also some misc swag items, so there will be a few packs of these to give away as well.
