Then, Mr. Principal reminds them that he doesn't want to see them in his office this year. Ha-ha!
We also enlisted the help of a local friend, who made us school spirit shirts. Bonus points if you know what JET stands for (it's more than just an airplane reference).
And everybody tries to fall asleep...and can't...and is so excited about the next morning! Assignment sheets are set out and supplies are organized. We're ready for 9th grade, 5th grade, and Pre-K (part time...Punky will still go to part-time preschool in the fall).
The next morning, everyone is bright-eyed and ready to learn. Except Belle, who spends the first 3 hours of her school day at the gym. It actually worked out well because I could focus the morning on Sunshine's lessons...my freshman in high school.
We're still working on Latin together, although Sunshine will move on to a higher level (faster moving) curriculum soon. (Punky is a master at her numbers, and was surprising us all day with her proficiency!) And, of course, the obligatory "First Day of School Class Photo" is included, too. (I think the spirit shirts were a hit, since Sunshine and Belle chose to wear them for their first day of school!)
We're off to a great start at JET Academy!
