The boys started their second year at CC (Classical Conversations) on Monday. School begins with an assembly at 9:00. During this time we are all together as a big group in the sanctuary. We do opening announcements, pledge of allegiance, pledge to the bible and sing the historical timeline from Creation to Present. After, the kids are split into classrooms by age and the parents can either attend one of their children’s classes the entire time or float between classes. I chose to stay with Asher the entire time this week and next Monday I’ll spend the entire time in John Robert’s class. They stay in their classrooms and do their memory work which consists of Science, History, Grammar, Math and Latin. Each classroom also rotates to do science experiments outside the classroom where they learn about the scientific method. School lets out for lunch at 12:00 pm and then the kids get to play together while the moms clean up.
It was wild and crazy the first day since it was also picture day. Lila just added to the madness since she’s in a stage where she wants to get down and into everything. We call her Miss Independent now. I ended up holding her while standing for almost the entire 3 hours. My arm felt like it was going to fall off by the end of the day. They do offer daycare for babies under 4, but Lila isn’t walking yet and she’d just get trampled in there. I’m not quite ready to throw her to the wolves yet. Our CC campus also grew by 6 x’s this year which made it very easy for John Robert to disappear over and over again as I was trying to leave. I’m so glad our “first day” craziness is behind us and I’m so grateful for our CC family. It’ll be a fun year!!!
