First day of school

I am starting to home school my daughter tomorrow. I am so excited! We are doing the Montessori method and starting out with practical life activities. She will be learning how to stand, how to walk, how to walk in a line, how to walk around a rug, how to sit, and how to sit in a chair. I know they sound basic, but so many people never actually teach their child how to do this stuff and then get frustrated that they are not doing it correctly.

I am looking forward to spending some quality time with Mena because Dad is starting back to work tomorrow. This will be a great chance to get on a good schedule and stick to it!

I have been organizing and changing our basement into a Montessori classroom. I will post pictures soon. (I can't seem to have enough shelves!!!!)

Exciting! How old is she? I was home schooled my entire life until college. =)
