First Day of School...;)

Well, today was our first day of school.We started a little later than most people because we were on vacation beforehand... Our family (of eight!) homeschools, and there's always a lot of preperation. =) I spent some time last night completely clearing out my desk and hutch. Here's the before photo -

And a few hours later...

Sorry for the green/blue quality of the photos...the lighting was bad. =L I'm so relieved to have a clean, orderly desk. It makes homework so much easier! =)

The book on the far right is an over-100-year-old history of England by Dickens...definitely a treasure! ;)

 Both these books cost a dollar each. =)

...and my old MN bike "license plate."

How did your first day of school go?

Today was the first day of school for us too! I had to do the same thing as you did! Clean off my desk! My first day was great! I got done with my stuff for today and tomorrow (I worked ahead!) by 10am this morning!

Emily said...

Hannah said...

Ha ha...yeah, I'm relieved it's clean! =) (this is really the first time in about six months that I've been able to actually see my desk beneath the papers and books!) ;)

HAHAHA Hannah!

I LOVE cleaning up my desk, because it might take a bit of work...but in the end it's worth it.

Great! My favorite subject is still Spelling. =D what's your's?


Hannah said...

Yep, you're right, Mattea...it's definitely worth it!

My favorite subject is Chemistry. It is challenging, but I'm having fun with it. =)

And I'm going to email you as soon as I can!
