Amy’s First Day of School

Remember my sister-in-law, Amy? The one who hosted the most awesome Homeschool Field Day in the world?

Well, she is super talented and so creative, and I have made it my goal to force her to be a part of this blog. As she is a few years ahead of me in the homeschooling world, I’ll be bugging her as often as possible for tips and ideas to share here at the Home Academy blog, but more often than not, I’ll just be swiping her photographs off of facebook and sharing them with you…always with her permission, of course.

While building their first home, Amy and my brother, Jerry, are temporarily set up in a rent house. Most of their possessions will remain in boxes for months until their house is completed. Add to that the fact that Amy is 8 months pregnant and her ankles and feet are so swollen that she broke a flip flop the other day…

still, she manages to not only “make do” but to make awesome.

Here are the pictures of her first day of school…

Kate is in preschool, but still gets to be included with the “big girls”

Anna is 2 weeks younger than my Gideon and is as excited as he is to be in Kindergarten!

And Abigail, a 3rd grader, is an old pro at homeschooling. I love how Amy made them little place cards and found cafeteria-style trays to eat on.

thanking God for food and homeschool

remember learning cursive handwriting in the 3rd grade? I’m so excited for Abigail…

Geography is fun when you have a huge bucket of colored pencils to work with.

and its pretty too…

Beautiful Anna works on letter identification.

Kate stays occupied with a “Meet the Letters” DVD. Someday soon, I’ll have Amy share some ideas for keeping the youngest family members busy during school hours.
