Back to academic work

We started our "schoolwork" yesterday. I'd rather start in September after Labor Day, but if we begin earlier I don't feel like we're getting behind if we take off a day here or a week there. Here's the small bookcase that holds the books the children are currently using. The contents change as the year progresses:

Jacy, Sarah, and I share the top shelf. Joan and David have the middle shelf. Marley and Sam's books are on the bottom shelf.

And so that Jeannine won't lie awake tonight trying to figure out the titles on those shelves, here are the close-ups:

Now that we're back to work, I really look forward to the end of the school day and time to tidy up the house so I can enjoy an hour of knitting and an hour of reading. So now I'll go work on Dad's cardigan (which is fitting him! - I measured what I've completed of the back on him and it is the right size) and then read a bit in Middlemarch.

Other than having my seven year old read to me from 2nd-3rd grade level library books, we have yet to dive into the homeschool day and are holding off to Labor Day. But I understand why you want to start early. I actually should do that too since we're taking a week off in October...
Anyway, you look so nice and organized! I'm so still in vacation-mode and need to get my new mind-set for school year!

LOL, I had just tried clicking on the first picture to enlarge it so that I could read the titles (it didn't work) and then I saw that you'd kindly indulged my curiosity.

We start school on the 28th. I really hope our plumbing is straightened out by then.
