Since starting to home-educate, we've changed a lot of things about the rhythm of our lives. One thing that remains, though, is my obsessive need to have first day of school pictures. My mom always took them, and I even had my roommates take them in college so that I could mail them to her. We use the first day of Classical Conversations for our "First Day of School" pictures. The kids get to pick out a new outfit, which they love, and then once they're all schnazzed up, I make us spend seven extra minutes we don't have because we're running later than I'd hoped to get pictures.
Oh my little Savannah Lynn. I jokingly say that she's got a Napoleon Complex. Tiny and petite, she will hurt you if you get in her way and fail to yield to her sweet cute side! She's very much a tough cookie and wants to be the boss, and enjoys the control she has over the men in our family :) She's sassy and smart and wants to do everything her brothers do. I'm tutoring her class this year and am enjoying already how eager and excited she is to learn. I'm so excited to see the person she ends up becoming!
Here's to a great 2012-2013 year!!
