It's all about the A! Or is it K?

Our first week was not as normal as I would like our homeschool week to go.  One thing that set us back were two trips to the zoo.  In order to take advantage of our free passes I have scheduled a bunch of trips this month.  We had a ball with our friends both days! 
We had a good week learning about the letter A.  We did all the activities in the lesson plan.  When I summed up our week Saturday, I showed my little leaper the A she made with popsicle sticks.  I said “Sweetheart what letter is this?” She yelled “K”.  I hope she’ll pick up on the new letter E.  We will have our friends here Monday to start a new week of learning. 
Here are some pictures of our fieldtrips and lesson time.

First Day of School

Our first day of school went great.  Three friends joined us. We started with the letter A in our Letter of the Week program.  We made an A out of popsicle sticks and decorated it with apples.  I didn’t take many pictures but the kids had a great time and you can see it in the few I have.

Getting it all together?

Will I really ever get it all together?  No, but I try! Our classroom is almost complete. Most of the work for the week is ready to use. We have 3 or 4 homeschooling friends that will be joining on this adventure. My little leaper is very excited to start going to school at home.  She has mentioned her "school" a few times. I heard her telling the teacher at church that she was going to go to school at home.  So that make me feel good.  Some of  her friends are attending the class at Family Fundamentals and are enjoying it.  I feel like I don't what the competition. Our first week of school will be two days at the zoo.  We get in free with our MOSI pass so I plan to go as much as possible.  Well I don't have time to type I have to keep working on stuff. Will post pictures later.  For now I can check Creating a Blog off my list.
