There's always one clown in a class and Tony is happy to fill that role.
Then we went in the house and looked at all our new books. Kate immediately dragged out Grace's Learning RX since that is what she will be doing this year (among other things). Grace & Tony went to their respective areas and started working although Grace is mostly teacher led still so she didn't do much. Tony however is quite independent in his school work so we didn't see him for awhile except for an occasional question.
Kate and I finished Learning RX and Grace and I started working on her things. It was rather chaotic but she has learned to block out the chaos so she did fine. Kate is supposed to be playing with special toys that only come out one day a week but that was just not her thing today; she wanted to be in our business. lol
Once we all got done with the big subjects, it was lunch time. Daddy was ready to take me shopping for my new school desk so we snatched him away from the base and took off to the store. Fun time there, I love my new desk which will be delivered later this week. We also bought Grace a chair for her desk. She has the most adorable desk ever (I'll take pictures later this week) but has always had trouble finding a chair that put her high enough to write on it. Today we found it - in PINK! What more could a girly-girl ask for??
After dropping Daddy back off at work, we came home and wrote up our first day papers. This is just a paper where they write their names, height/weight, favorite color, favorite movie, favorite food, etc. Then I put their individual first day school picture on it and file it away. The highlight of that whole paper is they get to write what they want to be when they grow up. Tony wants to be a published author (big time published, not self published like he did before), Grace wants to be a missionary and Kate wants to be Spidergirl. Cool, those are do-able. :)
We finished the night off with dinner and Daddy reading Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle to the kids. So although it did not go as planned, the day was perfect.
