Dadgummit!

I'm trying desperately to make a slideshow of our first day of school pictures for the blog, but I can't find any good website to let me do it! I'm having trouble uploading them to Photobucket, and the other site that I found was giving me grief as well.
Phooey.
And I know that y'all would want to see what we did on the first day of school, right? Because we dissected an owl pule pellet! And found real bones inside! (I always try to do something fun on the first day, seeing as how The Kids don't need to spend any time getting to know their classmates or teacher. We're all pretty well acquainted!)
...
OK, OK, I finally figured it out! I thought this might be better than having a loooong post because of all the pictures laid out.



YAY! I think it worked!

We're having a good start of school, actually! My goal this year is to get Reilly working more independently, which seems to be going well so far. I just want to make sure that my time is more evenly divided this year than it has been in the past, seeing as how Declan's in a REAL grade now.



(How is it that I have a fourth grader and a first grader? When did they get so old?)

I can't believe how big they are getting! And could Declan look any more like Troy? Wow!

I'm curious what curriculum you are using for your 1st and 4th grader. Is it one where you can do some subjects together? My two little ones are growing up fast and it just occurred to me that I have NO CLUE how I'm going to teach all of them at different levels!
