The "official" first day of school

Yep, It's that time of the year. The fall colors will be coming out soon and the kids all return to the classroom. While the girls have been doing class since last week, Today was the first "official" day back to school for the local school district. So in honor of the "first day" of school we did the "not back to school day" thing. Mommy and Daddy went out early and bought some groceries for canning for the winter.
Mom says that tomorrow will be school and then canning. She's going to make lots of chicken soup, plum sauce, and maybe some stewed tomatoes if she gets enough off the tomato plants. Girls did a "late class" after dinner and did their first entry of their Daily Science Journal and went for a walk to make observations about the world around them and current weather conditions. So off to the "classroom" we went..

Then it was home for their "first day of School Cupcake".

Stay tuned for their "new" school year!
