We Don't Need No Education

Its the first day of our new curriculum year! To celebrate we tried not to learn anything hehe.

We started out the day by making Nutella cupcakes for breakfast. I would link you the recipe but I wouldn't recommend the one we used. I'll work on one.

Next, she humored me with a back to school picture. It only took 40 billion tries! Open your eyes please. Aww, can I have a real smile? 

Then we did our spelling and math journals. This weeks answer is:
Can't imagine why I'm caught up on cupcakes!

After the education fluff was done, we went and picked up some curriculum books from our favorite ST. It was nice catching up with her after the long summer break. Kiddo dazzled her with her extensive knowledge of Minecraft.

From there we headed to the library to pick up a reserved book and a dozen or so fun reads. Came home for lunch and started our bio poems, which we turned into wordles.

 Then it was reading time, also get back into lounge wear time she thought:

Followed by making bookmarks and decorating our journals. She found a picture of Ricky Gervais in giraffe pajamas and pasted her own head on top of his.

Finally we listened to the first 2 chapters of Little Women on LibriVox. Whew. Made it through the first day of fun. Tomorrow is back to the not always as fun stuff.


  1. Hahaha! It must be genetic. My child knows more about minecraft than probably anything else. What can I say, without grades we have to motivate our kids with something!

    1. The dangers of raising nerds I guess :)
