(I debated waiting a week or two until I was "ready." Well, I figured life will go on no matter what, so we might as well jump in.) We have had a great week so far, so I am glad we did! Here is how we are starting our day: This is geared towards Malachi mostly. I started homeschooling when Dylan was in 5K…

(sounds dramatic but that is really what goes through my head!) I sat down as soon as…

Phew! It's in the books! My first day back in Kindergarten and let me tell you... I'm a little out of practice!
