Kickin' off another year...Seuss Style!

The first week of September brings change...with a crisp, coolness in the morning air and the promise of fall coming soon, it is the time I like to kick off our new year! We do not have a set start and stop to our learning, but the fun and excitement of starting a new 'school' year is worth celebrating, so we make it a fun day. This year I decided to celebrate...
Why, you ask? Simply to appease a 5-year-olds wishes!  In  March, 2011 I went all out on Dr. Seuss' birthday and we had a fun celebration. The littles [and bigs] loved it and asked often when it was going to be 'Dr. Seuss Day' again? Well, as life goes, I forgot to do it last spring and sweet Chloe has asked almost every day, "When is it going to be Dr. Seuss' birthday?" I did not have the heart to tell her it had passed, so I decided to turn it into our first day of school celebration! Why not? Another wonderful homeschool perk...flexibility! It was a huge surprise and they loved it! This year begins our 10th year of homeschooling! What a blessed adventure it has been and I look forward to 20+ more years! This year marks three monumental years~ Katelyn starts High School, Cason starts Jr. High, and Chloe starts Kindergarten! I'm teaching 9th, 6th, 3rd, K, & baby this year~ crazy, chaotic, FUN! I LOVE my job! 

Yes...that's a Dr. Seuss t-shirt! I don't have the nickname 'Ms. Frizzle' for nothing! 

Praying you have a great start to a great new year!
Celebrate the big and the little things!
