Back To School - 2010/11

We actually started school two weeks ago, but this morning I came down to this message from the kids:

Welcome Back to School
(officially!)

So I guess the last two weeks were just a trial run!  Anyway, it was nice to have a quiet neighborhood again.  It was, of course, back to school for all the neighbor kids.  The weather was very chilly, windy, and cold which added to the mood of hunkering down and studying.  

We had a good day.  It was nice to get back to a full day schedule, and I wrapped up a few little details with the trip so I would be fully present during "school time."  The kids liked our new Art History study.  We are using Usborne's Internet Linked Introduction to Art.  That was the funnest part of the day, and the discussion we had was awesome!  Here is one of the paintings we discussed:

Raphael's Vision of a Knight

We'll keep reading a section everday or every other day until the trip.  Little miracles have been coming through day by day with reservations, places to stay, deals, etc.  God is definitely working overtime with our trip planning!

Here is a cute pic just to show how serious we are around here about school!

Sometimes we do "school" in our pajamas!

Ciao for now,
G
