Angels Academy Pictures!! (Such as they are...)

(This is a blog hop by ihomeschoolnetwork! Since I was unable to post pics last week, I am doing two weeks together! I love, love, love checking out other homeschool pictures!) 

Okay, so I probably deserve the Mommy fail of the year. I cannot find my charger to my good camera. So, we have had to just settle for phone pictures for the first day of school. *sigh* Oh well, it will at least give you a glance into our day! The entire day was smooth and the girls actually begged to keep going but the teacher put her foot down for the first day of school. I know that there are going to be many days they will be PRAYING to stop! teheheehehe

The lessons were completed without pain and I am really pleased with the semester approach I am taking. You can read more about it here and here. Our days are not as long and laborious. The girls were up, dressed and finished with morning chores thirty minutes ahead of schedule. Family Bible time was fun. The hubby decided to read the story about the man from the Gaderene tombs.  My three year old Sunshine got this out of the story: "There were pigs and they died!" Hey, at least she was listening! That is a feat for my toddler.

Math, Language, and Writing were fun today and I am relishing the newness of it all. While I was balancing the 3rd and 6th grade teaching, I also had my Pre-K student to keep busy. WOW! We went from writing on the white board, building blocks, and coloring within 12 and half minutes. I confess she went to watch an *educational television show* while I taught Math to my older girls. Don't judge me! But, we were able to accomplish "sewing" to increase eye/hand coordination, numbers, and writing. For that I am proud!

So, without further ado, here are the beautiful students of Angels Academy! I am sorry for the grainy pics... *sigh*
