First Day of Pre-K!

We started homeschooling yesterday!!!  We had a great day and I just wanted to share some of the first day festivities (including 1st day photos!).

Ethan woke up to find his "classroom" looking like this:

Each balloon had a little piece of paper with an assignment written on it.  

And he got to pop the balloons to find out what we did next.  It didn't take him long to find out how to just snip the end and then watch the balloon fly around the room like crazy.  

First day of Pre-K!

He decided he wanted to write the names of all his family members and did MOM, DAD, HOPE and Ethan without any help.  He wanted to write Shyla and Jakin too, but needed a little help spelling their names.  Isn't he just the sweetest child?

I am so grateful for camera timers to capture sweet moments like prayer on our first day of school!

Writing letters with his dry erase crayons.  He'd been at his desk for a little while, so we mixed it up and had tummy time :-)

For lunch I thought I would join in with Muffin Tin Mom and Muffin Tin Mondays.  For our first day of school muffin tin, he had ABC's and 123 pasta, grilled cheese cut into A,B,C, cucumbers from the garden, grapes, cheese crackers and his favorite dessert (peanut butter brownie mini's).  He ate it great and I'm sold on this muffin tin meals!

I also got a couple of shots I hope to repeat for many "first days" to come!

My favorite...

We had a great day and I am looking forward to a great year of Pre-K!!!

Great ideas with the balloons and the sidewalk chalk! Bolt is one of my PK son's favorite movies, too!
