Not Back To School, 2013

I woke up this morning to a newsfeed filled with happy, fresh-faced, smiling Back to School pictures from my friends.  Since we live as if school didn’t exist, there’s no “back to” around here.  And while we DO do fresh-faced and smiling… that’s not the way we generally roll at 7 in the morning.  :)

Here then are our “Not back to school” pictures, in all their sleepy glory.  Another year of blissfully and purposely opting out.

I love her sleepwear choices… a princess nightgown one night, followed by a Spiderman costume, and leggings and a sweater the next

And saving us from too much redundancy is Spencer, who'd come into my room to say good morning.  He recently decided he wanted to start getting up early, so a few days ago he adjusted his sleep schedule (which handily answers the question, "What happens when they get a job and have to get up at a certain time??"

Today’s the day after Labor Day, which really doesn’t mean a whole lot to us.  It’s also a Tuesday, which means – like any other Tuesday – we’ll be hanging out at home in the morning, and then taking the youngest two to gymnastics in the afternoon.  Before we do that though, I want to do fingernails with the girl, and I just read about a cool science experiment that I think Everett will love.

But first, another cup of coffee.

Happy Back to School, or NOT Back to School, whatever it may mean for you.

    Happy Not Back to School! We’re on a bit of a different path but this week is a week off for us so its donuts and Duck Dynasty this morning.

    We spent the afternoon swimming with a few other homeschooling families at a neighborhood lake. :)

    Love this. Thanks for the encouragement. I’ve been seeing the same pics. While we are getting going on a couple of subjects, we only have room for 2 days of “school” this week. I’m not totally unschooling, though I think a normal schooler would think we do pretty much nothing around here. Happy Not Back to School Day!

    Today was supposed to be our first day of homeschool 1st grade. Seeing as that I still haven’t even ordered the curriculum, we spent our morning having a play date and eating tacos. :) Happy not back to school!

    Love this! My oldest spent his first NOT back to school day playing his favorite video game. And I loved it!
