Welcome to the September 5th edition of The Homeschool Mother’s Journal at NextGen Homeschool!
It was back-to-school week for my family, and our week started out with our first day at Artios Academies, the once-a-week integrated academic and arts program we’re participating in along with 20 other homeschooling families in our area. I’m also teaching History and Literature for the middle school and high school students in the program, so I was both excited for the girls and a little nervous about doing my part to make it a great first day for all my new students.
It was hard getting up and out the door early after a very relaxing last month of summer break, however the girls were all smiles and energized by the time we arrived. Classes ran very smoothly for a first day at a new location, with many families participating in the program for the first time. The girls enjoyed getting to work with some new teachers and friends, and I managed to get over my first-day jitters and enjoy the four classes I taught.
Even though this holiday weekend means we won’t be back to Artios for two weeks, the momentum we built that day carried through during the rest of our homeschool week. The girls dove in to the reading, writing and projects launched in Monday’s classes even though they have plenty of time to finish their assignments.
What about you? Are you back in a routine in your homeschool? Or are you planning to start back after the summer’s last holiday weekend?
