We're officially in our fifth week of school this year, but today marked the first day of co-op. It was fun seeing friends from last year, meeting new folks, and seeing the sparkle in my kids eyes as they were telling me about their classes. Think Thing one is the most excited about co-op this year; he is taking a cooking class and "Dangerous Boys" AND his best friend is in both classes. Thing two is taking free play/games (which for him is a good thing because he is a ball of energy) and Galloping the Globe; believe his best friend is in at least one of his classes which is nice too. Hopefully it won't cause trouble for their teachers because they can be a handful.
Couple things about the photo. First, yes, I'm late on the "first day of school" photo and I usually take them at the front door. This seemed appropriate, when I thought about because we home school and we've done/completed some school in the car. Second note, thing two is distracted by our neighbors dog, who had just been let out and likes to take a quick run through our yard. Not a big deal, because Bandit is a sweet dog and we've encouraged it.
So, there you have it, our official, first day of school photo for 2010/2011 school year.
