Start of the new year :)

It's that time of year...back to school! Of course my little ones aren't going to "real" school, but we have started our own little school this week. On Monday we went to a wonderful little picnic for a homeschool group and it was great! The kids and I all had a great time. I'm looking forward to getting to know all of them!
Today we started our school work. We didn't do much, about an hour of "table-time" It was fun though! We did do our hooked on phonics CD and flashcards during breakfast. After we all got dressed and ready for our day we sat down at the table and we learned the letter B (Lyssi does know all of her upper case letters and most of her lower case letters, but we are reviewing their sounds) made a book about our body, learned a finger play, sang "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes" and then watched Baby Einstein (Baby DiVinci, it's about the body) All in all it went really well and was a nice way to get back into the swing of things.
Tomorrow morning we'll do our flashcards, then we'll go to storytime at the bookstore. We'll also do some worksheets/workbooks together!
