We had our first day of our third year at Classical Conversations today. The morning dawned overcast and drizzly, with golden fall tones—so perfect for our first real day of back to school!
The early morning went so smoothly we had time to snap a few pictures as we were leaving the house.
Fall was proclaiming the day as a family of turkeys traipsed across the property during picture taking. I had to jump out of the truck to catch a quick snap shot of them heading into the trees as we were heading down the driveway.
Even though we are seasoned veterans of Classical Conversations, we still had a few new changes this year: a new location (which felt like a weighty change!), a new tutor (Luke has my sister Holly who he had the first year, Levi has the same tutor as last year, but Leif’s tutor is new), and a new adventure in the afternoon Essentials class for Levi.
The morning went seamlessly. I spent the time in Leif’s class. His tutor did an excellent job, and Leif loves her already. The room is large and bright. The students were well-behaved. Success!
The afternoon (lunch and Essentials) were a bit more challenging, but we’ll get the hang of things. I’m anticipating a great year!
(P.S. I came home and crashed on the couch, then Russ let me escape for a solitary shopping trip this evening. Now I’m gearing up for another field trip tomorrow!)
