Back-to-School :: 2010-2011

Captain :: 4th Grade ~ Rascal :: 3rd Grade

Twinkle Toes :: 1st Grade ~ Chiquita :: Kindergarten

Just like last year, the kids all woke up to find Schultütes filled with snacks and school supplies!  Even Snuggles, who wouldn't let me take an individual picture of him and will be focusing more on potty training this year instead of school, loved his mini version.  

Overall we had a great first day!  I decided to start on Thursday since we have a Back-to-School Mass & get together with our Homeschool Group today and should now be ready to start on our "real" schedule next week. 


  1. They all look so excited! God Bless.

  2. Oh yes!! They were all very excited, and thankfully some of that excitement started to rub off on me! ;)

    I'm so very thankful for everyone's prayers!!

  3. Your children are darling, Jessica! Don't you love those planners?

  4. School can be so much fun! Glad to hear you had a good first day. :)

    As for those planners, which ones are you using? In the past we have used the Good News student planners by Creative Communications.

  5. The planners are the Days of Faith Planners by Pflaum. We used them last year and I wasn't sure I'd use them again, but I was very happy with a couple of the changes for this year and when one of the moms in our homeschool group organized a group purchase (bringing them down to around $4 each) I decided to order them again. My children love them!! I ordered the Planner for Intermediate Grades (they have so much more room for writing assignments) for my three oldest and the one for Primary Grades (has lots of fun activities) for Chiquita. You can preview them at this link.

  6. Hi there Jessica,
    What do you use for 3rd grade English?
    Glad your 1st day went well. here's to many more wonderful days!

  7. If you are on the lookout for a great math series SAXON comes by highly recommended by my homeschooled hubby. They use the spiral method which reinforces and incorporates previously studied material. Very effective!!!!

  8. Jessica,

    Beautiful happy shiny faces!!

    If you ever get the time can you share what your kindergarten plans are for Chiquita??

  9. Those planners look great, Jessica! Thanks so much. :)

  10. Aw they look so sweet and happy! Heres to a great homeschool year!

  11. Love the back to school packages! What a cute idea! :-) My Lydia will be ready for kindergarten next year. Until then, we are trying to take preschool seriously this year.
