I am still in denial that we are actually starting school which is why this post is slightly delayed. We started school last Monday as a group. Sims started an online class a few weeks ago. As much as I would love to show you a beautiful back to school picture of the three of them smiling, I have nothing close. I have pictures of the three of them steadily working and looking at their books for the year.
Overall, the week went well. Monday, we spent at home. Tuesday, Parks and I headed out for his writing class while the older two stayed home and worked. Wednesday, we went to the park for the first day of our 4H co-op and pretended that it is still summer by hitting the lake for a swim afterwards. Thursday, we hit the barn. Friday, we finished up any unfinished work from the week. We also celebrated Sawyer’s last allergy shot!! (Five years ago, Sawyer found out that she is allergic to the five bee types that we have here in NC. Over the past five years, she has gone monthly to get two shots-equivalent to getting 18 bee stings at once. She is amazing.) The workload was light this week. My hope was just to get everyone into a rhythm. I think that it worked pretty well.
In addition to celebrating, Sawyer’s last shot, we also watched Sims compete in his first deep water solo rock climbing event at the US National White Water Center. The competition was a lot of fun to watch!
