I was trying to decide HOW to start this blog. I mean, I have tons of post ideas to share with you, but HOW do I get started? Well, I decided to start with our first day of school!
We school year round so we start in July. So our first scheduled day of school for the 2015/2016 school year was Monday, July 13th. This is our first day of our second year of homeschooling.
Our First Day of School for 2015 didn’t go as planned. Our air conditioner went out Saturday night. Not wanting to have to pay weekend rates for service, I waited until this morning to call. Well, apparently there was a list and he would “try to get to me by the end of the day”. UGH. At this point it was 7:30 am and 84 degrees in my house with a projected high for the day of 96 degrees.
So I scraped up the most portable lessons scheduled for today and we headed to the library around 9:00. BigG browsed the new books. I picked up some books we would be needing. He wanted to play with the toys in the kids area so I read to him while he played. As I was just about to suggest we move from the kids area to the quiet area to get started with our school work, the AC repair man called and said he was on his way to our house – it wasn’t even 10:30 yet! So we check out and head back home.
By 11:30 the air is fixed. Praise the Lord! But now lunch has to be made and eaten and we’re so far behind on our “first day of school”. And it isn’t ANYTHING like the magical day I imagined it would be.
But, by golly, it HAPPENED! We did it. We had our first day of school!
