Saying "goodbye"... a year of homeschooling, that is!

We officially ended our first year of homeschooling yesterday, after switching into a more "year-round" kind of schedule last fall.   Taking breaks off allowed us to visit more with family when they were in town, take vacations as a family, and most importantly.....take off Advent and Lent to truly immerse ourselves in the seasons.   It worked wonderfully for us, but it did mean that we were in school quite a bit longer than originally planned!   (Stay tuned for a Homeschooling Wrap-Up post in the near future - it was quite an eye-opening year!)

We homeschoolers know how to celebrate in grand fashion, though.   Our last day of school just so happened to coincide with "Cow Appreciation Day" at Chick-fil-a.   What does that mean?

Well, it means our last art lesson was designing cow costumes, of course!   Cow costume = free lunch at Chick-fil-a!   Check them out:

My silly silly calves

Can't forget the tail!

It was worth it!  Free lunch!!  :-)

One more picture, and then I'm off to make the rascals breakfast.   I present to you our newest first grader!!
