Friday School

For their first day of school I tried putting curlers in the girls' hair with mixed results. The second week we didn't do curlers, but I did actually remember to take a photo of them outside their school.

It's going really well so far. Danya loves her journalism and choir classes. Gloria thinks her Snap Circuits class is great. Brianna is excited about her dance class. Shane is just happy to be there. He especially liked the day that they all got to bring blankets and flash lights and make tents in his Kindergarten class. They ate lentil soup and pretended they were nomads.

Meanwhile, I've been discovering just how smart Kevin is. With time to really work with him, one on one, he's been showing off all the things he's learned that I didn't even know he could do. I found out that he already knows how to measure things with a ruler. We've had lots of reading time, learning games on the computer, and playing store together. It's been great.

Poor Danya, though. Last week her journalism class published their first school newspaper, but she missed it because all the other kids had the flu, so I didn't let any of them go to school. Ah, the tragedy of her young life.
