out to school: week 1 (year 2)

August 21, 2012

the first day togetherthe first day togetherthe first day togetherthe first day togetherthe first day togetherToday was their first day of school together… Brave was a ball of excitement and True was a ball of nerves. True is officially a first grader and Brave is a kindergartener. Last year, was an emotional drop off since it was our first time doing this, but this year was a bit calmer. No tears were shed. I think it has to do with the fact, though Brave wasn’t officially “in” school last year, she was right there learning everything that True was learning, so I kind of feel like she’s done this already.

I know. You’re wondering, “Wait. I thought you homeschooled?” I am sure I confuse you all the time. Yes, we homeschool, but they go to a local charter school once a week for enrichment classes with other homeschool kids. It is such a great program and I am thankful for our charter school system that provides this opportunity.

Bit of a conversation I had with Brave tonight…
Me: So Brave, what did you and True do when you saw each other at lunch time?
Brave: She showed me around and we talked.
Me: What did you talk about?
Brave: Where everything is.
Me: So, True showed you the ropes?
Brave: What ropes?

These girls make so many good memories together and are the bestest of friends that I am so happy that we had them back to back. It’s a lot of insane now with all of them, but so worth it.

on brave: dress, vintage. shirt, target. shoes, vintage via rachel’s pop up shop. on true: shirt, handmade. shorts, vintage. shoes, salt-water sandals.

    Love Trues new haircut – it makes her look just a little bit older.

    Too cute!! 🙂

    I think this is a great program and it’s great that your school system has it. I wish our school system would provide this kind of program, too. But, that’s probably not going to happen for ages. 🙁

    Have a great new school year!!

    and.. where is Soul?

  • “what ropes” hehehehe.
    That’s really wonderful that they had a good day. I wish they had something like this for the homeschoolers in northern NJ but they don’t. I was searching everywhere online this summer for them too. Thankfully one of my best friends has two little boys she is starting to homeschool preschool for, so that’s helpful, but they don’t have much for the kids until they are older. Your girls’ outfits are adorable. Aw.
