getting schooled

Our school room... full of windows and light.
Zibby was so funny. She loves maps and insists on showing us all where we lived and where we live now.
The kids at their desk.

The back of our Old House. Those two windows on the second floor are our schoolroom (right) and Daddy's office(left). He worked from home all day today and we treasured being together.

Today was our first day of home school together. I have to say, it was much better than expected. Yes, it's true, I feel incredibly inadequate and I can only hope that the kids learned something, but overall I think it went well. It was peaceful. I did lose my temper when one of my "students" walked through the house with dog poop on her shoes. I felt sorry for my overreaction and apologized. I have a feeling that there will be a lot of that. But, even still, I loved having them here and I loved learning with them.
