First Day of School

Our First Day of School!

Autumn (9) is in grade 4.
Cody (almost 4) is in Preschool.

I mentioned in an earlier post that Australia schools year round.  Their school year starts soon after Australia Day and goes through the middle of December.  They have a few, longer breaks throughout the year. 

I'm excited about this school year, mainly because we're finally settled!  It's nice to know that for the most part we will be home during the day.  We are also joining up with a homeschool group in the area.  They are meeting here on Friday to discuss field trips and future get-togethers.

Here's to a great school year!

I'm linking up with Missionary Monday!

How neat! I home-school year round too... but the schools here have off six weeks in the summer, so my kids get a lot of down time then :-)

LOVE your new header!

I hope you have a wonderful school year!! We also began this past Tuesday! I can't believe the extra work having the twins change from preschool to kindergarten ( NSW's first grade) is! Oh well ~ it sure is a blessing that we can home school!
