We have a first day of school tradition here at the Beehive of having all the student types color their grade number on a sheet of paper, and then pose for pics in the yard. We did this on September 5th, but it's taken me a couple of weeks to post the pics, due to our as yet uneasy relationship with the new computer.
This is Fa's last time to be in the picture, which had all of us rather choked up that morning during the coloring session... which means we then had to get silly in order to recover.
You can see pictures from our very first day of school, and some other first day pics through the years, here. Observant sorts will notice that Beatrice somehow managed to skip 9th grade... well, umm... we sort of miscalculated last year. Such are the perils of homeschooling -- we just don't pay all that much attention to grade levels and such.
