First of September

September 1 is the first day of the school year in this part of the world. After a week of camp, I didn't plan much for today; we were just too tired. We did get dressed up and go out to take photos. I think some of them turned out great! And then we came back for tea to celebrate the beginning of the school year.

On Monday we'll actually start. Jaan will be in Ambleside Online Year 3 and Raia in Year 1. Raia can't wait to start; Jaan says that he doesn't want to. He doesn't want summer to end. I don't think he'll have any complaints about his school work, though. Asya and Bogdan will continue to learn about the world around them through as much contact with nature and life as they can take in.

Oh, this made me laugh: when we were out, everyone was picking wildflowers. Jaan gave me a beautiful bouquet, saying, "So that you'll teach us well." Will looked at me after Jaan walked away again and asked, "Was that a bribe?"

P.S. I put the rest of today's photos here.
