Home School Kindergarten Orientation Success

The girls loved the classroom.  I showed them the different stations and explained some of the new activities and experiences that we will be having with Kindergarten and 'Play' School for Aurora since she is only two.  Isabelle is an eager student and I have no doubt that we will sail through this year with ease.  Our school year is going to be May to May four days a week with a week off approximately every 5 to 6 weeks. Which usually falls conveniently on major holidays.  We opted for Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday as our work days.  The best part is we can take advantage of our favorite activities: library, shopping, bowling, mini golf, beach etc while the crowds aren't there during the weekdays.  Tonight when I got her ready for bed she told me with a big smile how much she loved her new kindergarten.  That felt so good.  The art was just a fun little throw together loosely based on vintage toys with spray acrylics, crayons and India ink.
