While none of us are quite ready for summer to end and school to start . . . we were still quite excited to see the FedEx van coming up the driveway to deliver THIS:
It is always an exciting day when the big Sonlight box arrives! Everyone joined in to unpack our new books:
Another free tote bag that came with our order (got one last year too--I love these!)
Julia took a look at this one . . . "Oh, a horse book! It says it's a GOOD one!"
(smart girl already recognizes the Newbery Medal :))
Josiah was super excited about his math books . . . he is so eager to start school!!
Piles and piles of books . . .
Now I need to figure out where to put them all!
Sam's favorite part may have been his very own set of geometry tools. We'll see if he still thinks they are cool when we get to use them for math. :) (Actually, from our experience last year, I'd say that geometry is probably going to be one of his strong points!)
Now I just have a few more things to order from CBD and I think we will be ready to start our school year (which will probably happen right after Labor Day). We will be starting American history this year and I am so looking forward to that!! I hope to do a more detailed post soon with our school plan for this year . . . it's going to be different with another kid in the mix, but I think it'll be a lot of fun. :)
