Day 27- 1st Day of School with a field trip!

Today was our official- unofficial first day of school at Atchley Academy. Mostly just an Math assessment to see where we need to start off, a "study" in what happens to things when they freeze (actually over the last couple days), and a field trip to the best place to check out frozen stuff. Yup. Nothing says first day of homeschooling like a trip to the Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Factory. Hope he doesn't think that every day of school will be like this!

Frozen juice!

Learning is yummy!

(We actually do learn a lot on the factory tour about production and entrepreneurship- you just can't take any pictures about that part of it!)

If I were Colton I'd never want to go back to public school again... much more fun with "Mom as the teacher". Glad you're enjoying Vermont - what an experience of a lifetime :)
