The boys were quite excited too and so far they are enjoying it. They actually grumbled a little because we didn't do school over the weekend. Cruz said he was not ready for a break yet. That boy is a mess!
Our first day of school was more of an ice breaker to get us back going. We had a fun celebration morning. We took pictures and did all of our first day of school questionnaires and sheets. We also did a little review before starting strong the next day. Here is a look at our first day back-

Pancakes are our celebration breakfast meal. Always.

I had made a school memories booklet for Cruz last year in K5 using a template I found on a blog I follow 123 Homeschool 4 Me. It is such a fun idea and I decided to do it again this year for both boys. The pages are really cute and make a great keepsake.
I lack adding their pictures to the cover sheets.

Ben's drawing. He said it was himself with fire hair. They call spiked hair "fire hair". I think it looked more like me at the end of the day. ha

first day of K5. This year we ate there for supper. It looks like we are starting a Taco Bell tradition for the first day of school.
I'm excited about the school year ahead. I look forward to the things we will learn, the fun we will have, and the memories that we will make. Not much brings me more joy than having this time with my boys. I will treasure these years forever!
