um... my first day of school was rough. i ran across this quote by i forget who, " God often uses homeschooling to be the undoing of the self sufficient woman." amen and amen. i have a feeling though that in my undoing i will find what was worth doing in the first place. it WILL get better. yours looked lovely. :)

Looks like an amazing day! Are those 24 kids all part of a homeschooling group? How awesome!

Love that big baby!!
