Our “No First Day” Back to School Transition and Our Homeschool Orientation

Back to School?

Back to School

This year we are doing something different. We are not having a “first day of school.”


Yup. No traditional “first-day” picture. No big to-do for the “first day.” Instead, we are sort of just transitioning out of summer and into a school routine. Life is sort of just blending together more naturally, and I am fine with that.

We also had our homeschool “orientation” yesterday. It was a great way for me to go over with the kids all their books and resources for the year and what is expected. (You can read about our 2016-2017 plans here)

I posted a live video on facebook all about why we are not having a traditional “first day this year and our little homeschool orientation day. You can watch here:
