I know that we learn every day, and that we will be homeschooling not schooling at home, however, we like to take a first day picture of each student and make a big fuss of our new books and pencils and all that jazz. So, we have chosen August 13th to be the official day. Hurray! We all are excited. I have decided to put it off until then so we can all anticipate and look forward to the grand event! I am planning on taking pictures by our statue of the Blessed Mother, going to mass, and then having only a "half day" to ease into the routine.
