Our first day of school was really fantastic. Both kids were eager to see what new things they’d be doing and they had great attitudes about the tasks that might be challenging or would take them more time.
My main concern was how we would like the stuff we were trying for the first time. When you’ve invested in new curriculum, there’s always the concern that you’ll discover you hate it on the first day, but we were successful with everything that was new to us and I feel really good about using it all long-term. I’m breathing a big sigh of relief!

He did a massive amount of note-taking while listening to our history audios. After telling him my expectation that he’d be taking notes, I was secretly a bit worried he’d tell me he didn’t know what to write and that we’d end up with a blank page at the end, but he literally never stopped writing. We all found the audios to be very easy to listen to and full of interesting facts. Caroline kept turning to me and winking when she heard something that caught her attention! I loved getting the affirmation that she was following along.
