we've been celebrating the start of each new school year with a back to school feast.
here are scenes from labor day aka our first day of 2012.
oh those smiles melt me. especially the blurry one in the background. and the cutie chowing down and not willing to stop for a photo makes me laugh. i found these fun number cookies at the grocery store bakery. oh how i enjoy easy, cheap and tasty table decor. the meal itself consisted of pulled bbq pork sandwiches topped with wasabi broccoli slaw, corn on the cob, sweet potato fries, drunken apples, and lots of sweet tea. yum yum.
the papi praying for our year. so thankful we are doing this together.
the table is cleared. spontaneous drawing begins and i am reminded of why we have chosen to home educate. the game board comes out and we train them to play with kindness and patience. and i am reminded of the work ahead.
my heart fills with gratitude that i get to spend my days with these kiddos.
