GO!! Our first day of school

Well, we were "supposed" to wait until June 1st to officially start Kindergarten, but we didn't. After reading some posts on the Sonlight forums, I decided that we should gradually start school. First, we would start our Sonlight core; then, add in math; and finally, Spell to Write and Read. It didn't work exactly like that. We started the first day of our core on Friday. D-Man started learning his memory verse and we talked about our character trait of the week: attentiveness. Instead of continuing on with our core reading, D-Man begged to start his math workbook. I made him stop math after 3 lessons since we hadn't had breakfast yet. I wasn't suprised that he did 3 lessons and wanted to do more. After breakfast, we read our whole day's worth of Sonlight and a little more. Shawn was a little disappointed that we hadn't saved any school reading for bedtime. Overall, it was a GREAT first day.

One thing I figured out was that one day of core reading just isn't enough for us. So, I decided that we would just go through each of our "assignments" at our own pace and possibly do the entire thing twice this year. Basically, I need to be flexible.
