First day of school

Today was our first day of school and I'm feeling two things. . . thankful and tired! Overall we had a great day. We accomplished our goals and had fun too. I need to remember to get extra sleep and pray for patience because it will take a little while to train everyone how to work in the same space (both independently and one-on-one). I felt a little like a ping pong ball, but that's okay. I know it will take a little time. :)
This is what the boys saw when they came downstairs. 
We had our Bible time and prayer time during breakfast at 7:30 and 
then began our 1st day of school photo shoot at 8:30. :) 
Not sure what is in their backpacks, but it excited them so that was fine with me.
Sporting their new "Smith Academy" t-shirts. 
We wore them today, but I think we'll save them for field trips. 
And yes, their teacher and principal have one too!
 Then we moved into the school room for the pledge to the flag and Bible. 
 The last few photos are just glimpses of the boys in action 
working on their workboxes. 
 Book basket time
 Sorting bears with tongs
And lastly, at the listening center. 

We're ready for what God has planned for us tomorrow!
