Well, yesterday our curriculum from Sonlight arrived, so we had our first Box Day. :-) The kids are very excited and wanted to start it all today, but I told them that they had to wait until Monday. They were upset, but they have been doing some work in some workbooks that I had bought for them (the older 3 and the youngest I have been working on some 2 piece puzzles with him and his abc's).
My kids have always been excited about learning and school but they are just so much more excited now. Which makes me excited to teach again. I can't wait to start.

The older two are doing Core 3+4 with Horizons Math 3 and 5 and the Introduction to Biology. For the younger two we got Core C and I have tons of stuff from teaching for them, so we had decided on using that mostly.
