Being a homeschooler, I'm kind of lax on the whole 'first day of school picture' thing. This was NOT our first day. It WAS however, the first day for Lucy and Clyde to go to their not-at-home classes. I packed Iris up too and we did school at Barnes and Noble. If this were a picture of our actual first day you would see messy hair, pajamas, and kids spread out in different rooms.
But here it is...our sort of first day of 4th, 6th, and 8th grade!! (Note the book bags they each picked out...they're so unpredictable, I would have totally guessed that Iris would pick Lucy's and Lucy would pick Iris's.)
Here's Iris's first day EVER of going to classes without her mom!! She was VERY nervous!!
But when I picked her up, she was SO pumped! She knew one kid in creative writing and four kids in choir including these two beauties!!
This is what she looks like when the others are in class or cognitive training. Pretty cute, huh?
Lucy and Clyde LOVE getting to revisit some of their old experiments when their baby sister does them for her science. Melting chocolate with solar energy...it just never gets old!
Clyde in his literature and composition class... he's at the second table with a black shirt.
Lucy waiting for math to start...my camera kept not working and all I could get was this one of her chugging down water.
Iris in choir.... second table, far side of the room, second child.
Sorry, took more pics of Iris than Lu and Clyde...but she's with me more and this was her year of firsts. :)
