It's only one day a week and I'm wondering how you moms that drop off kids every morning get into the groove. Even starting at nine in the morning wasn't quite late enough for this mama who kind of loves sleeping in when possible (my excuse is bedtime after midnight regularly...canning tomatoes ;). But...it was worth it. I learned a lot. Moms sit in on the Essentials classes so that they can teach the stuff learned for the rest of the week and to help with assignments. It's pretty intense. But Gisella napped and my kids didn't melt down in nursery-so I can't really complain. I lost my keys for an hour our so before finding them by Gi's travel bed on a coat hook. One of those...I'm going to put these in such a safe place I'll never ever find them moments. Not having the keys meant I didn't have the history binders I needed for the boys as they were locked in our vehicle...but the mood and spirit of this group is great. I had moms passing me extra copies of stuff and we were all set in no time. ;) It's an odd mix of high expectations for the kids and moms and a real understanding of every mom doing things her own way without judging the place a child is at in their educational journey. Standing in line with the kids doing math drills was making me pretty nervous too. Who wants to add numbers slower than their 11 year old...?...stress. The setting is quite unique.

Will wanted his picture taken with the shorts he picked out...
This class was so cute :)
learning their timeline songs
I was running between four classrooms to listen in and hear their presentations- Noah was wondering what I was doing in his classroom. Apparently he's at the age were he's way too cool for that. ;)
"about me" presentations
Their science experiment was like a flip book thing with an eye blinking. :) All the ages did the same experiment, but Noah's older class drew their own picture to do it.
And that was the first day. The boys are so excited to do their homework...for the first week. We'll see how long that lasts ;)
