Our first day went so well. We sent Carrington off on the bus, she has a 45 minute bus ride every morning!  Happy to report she is loving high school so far. We also had our cake-for-breakfast-only-because-you-go-to-school-at-home tradition. Always a hit. So, let’s talk curriculum, shall we?  Finn (who would have started kindergarten this year) […]
