There’s very little that’s authentic about our family’s First Day of School posts. It’s really not our “first day.” We have a very fluid homeschool and we are always learning. We don’t put a high emphasis on what “grade” our kids are in. Mainly, this helps us know where to categorize them in events outside of our homeschool.
But we love doing “first day” pictures when the rest of our area goes back to school. It breaks my heart whenever I see pictures of children looking downcast as their mom celebrates her children going back to school. As a homeschool mom who feels grateful for every day home with her kids, it’s very difficult to understand.
We are having a party over here at our house today… a party that celebrates our freedom and gratitude to homeschool.
Happy First Day of School everyone! We pray you have a blessed school year, with hearts turned toward God and turned toward home.
Malachi 4:6 y’all!
