1st day of school 2013- 2014

Today was our first day of school for the new year.  We started the day off with homemade biscuits and chocolate milk and some early morning art at the kitchen table.
We got everything on our list finished including math, speed drill, 15 minutes of reading, Bible, reading aloud by Mama, our new subject Logic, a couple of art projects, piano, History; the story of Alexander the Great, English, Phonics for Boo and Vocabulary and Spelling for LE.  We also added a cleaning block to our day, each day of the week there will be one deep cleaning project; today was their bathroom.  Tuesday will be cleaning their room (which is usually picked up, but will include dusting and vacuuming). Wednesday is the living room, Thursday is the classroom, and Friday is laundry.  Hopefully making these chores part of lesson plans, they will actually get done even if occasionally.
