First Day of School (kind of)

Everyone always gets such cute pictures of their kids on the first day of school. Well, since we don't really have that I decided that on our first day of co-op I would begin the tradition. So here are my little school kids... Oh and when you have 5 kids you take the poses they give you... I tried!

First Day of... For His Children Co-op

Kaden (4 m.) Nursery
Adison (2) Nursery
Kenyon (3 1/2) Preschool Classes: Story and Crafts

Snack and Play

Avery (5 1/2) Kindergarten/1st Grade

Classes: Great American Landmarks (taught by mom)

Games, Sports and Song

Adia (9) 5th Grade

Classes: Math in Literature

Express It! (Learning to read aloud and talk in front of groups with expression)

Group Worship Time!

This is our 3rd year having a co-op and we all LOVE it! This year we have 32 families and over 80 students. Basically we have a group worship and teaching time followed by two classes (broke up by grades just like "real" school), each class is one hour. Most moms teach a class one hour then have a fellowship time the second. This year I really wanted to be with the kids so I am teaching Avery the first hour and Kenyon the second. It's a lot of fun and people who homeschool without something like this are really missing out!

Great idea. I'm glad you took those pics. Looks like the camera is working out great. I'm jealous. Those pictures look awesome.
