Homeschool Year 2

We are four weeks into our homeschool year.  So far I am really happy with the curriculum we are using.  Both boys seem to be thriving and enjoying it.  It definitely takes lots of time and energy, but I feel overwhelmingly grateful that I have the freedom to teach my children at home.  
Pictures from the first day of school.

Bug has been taking to homeschool really well this year.  It seems he has outgrown his whining and is much more willing to cooperate and work hard for longer periods of time.  He keeps me on my toes.
I am glad Bear didn't want to go to Preschool this year. I was really close to signing him up for one and it has been nice to have him home with us and not have to worry about rushing him to school and picking him up again.  He has been surprising me with the things he knows and I feel like I am understanding his talents and abilities better.
On a side note, Belle started talking this week!!!  She has been a good communicator for a long time, just not with actual words.  For the past 6 or 7 days she has been surprising me with words like purple, sorry, stop!, and " I'm a baby."  I have loved that she has been so tiny and babyish for so long, but am happy to see her learning and growing.  My heart is happy.

Oh, my gosh, TALKING! We must Skype soon! (Looks like school is off to a good start -- the boys are lucky to have such a good teacher!)
