First few days in the world of home schooling

Yes I am blogging don't all scream at once. I know it has been a while but I am here now.
This week Aiden has started preschool. It is going well. I was a bit anxious, because for a while now I have been preparing for this moment and it is here. So sunday night I felt like it was my first day of school. The wonderful part of this year is that it is like my practice year. it is important he learns some things but next year is when it really begins. I feel like when I first learned to ride a bike. You are a little wobbly at first till you get the hang of it. I have had such great support and guidance.
At first Aiden said no I am not going to school. He thought he was going to an actual school. It took him two days to realize he was not going anywhere. It is amazing you can truely make school out of almost anything. Today for math also we sorted, counted made letters and numbers out of a bag of starburst I had. He had a blast. It was really cool monday my mom and sister called and said how was school and then my aunts came over and said Aiden how was school what did you learn. It was a good feeling to have family support. Well good bye for now I will keep you updated with our schooling.
