Awesome first day with LHTH & Bigger! :)

We had such an awesome day! The words of my 7 yr old dd pretty much say it all. She came up to me about half way through the day and said: "I thought it was going to be like every other school day, but it's much more fun." Come to think of it, I felt the same way! :lol:
My 3 year old had so much fun with Little Hands, she giggled all the way through the fingerplay "Adam and the Animals." Dd(7) enjoys helping out with her sister's preschool lessons and participating as well.
Before HOD, I struggled many weeks to fit in both Art and Music lessons. Today, we followed the lessons, and managed to do both in one day! :o
Today is the first time since we began homeschooling that I did not end my day feeling thoroughly exhausted, I was able to pace myself throughout the day and never felt rushed to get it all done.
I am so thankful to have been led to HOD! :D

YEAH! That is so awesome! So glad you and your kids loved it. We felt the same way on the first day. You expect some time to ramp up but it just starts out easy and fun and stays that way! So excited for you guys! :D

I'm so excited that you thoroughly enjoyed your first day and that your kiddos could tell a difference in their school day! :wink:

That is an answer to prayer for us, so I'm so glad you shared! We're rejoicing with you today! :D

woo hoo! what a great day you've had!! :-)

that's one of the things I discussed with a friend of mine who just "converted" to HOD. I said that yes, it's deceptively simple in the teacher's guide, but if I'm doing NOTHING right now, then isn't simple better then nothing? Really-before we were fully using HOD we struggled to get anything done with any regularity. Now we have simple, laid out plans that actually get done!! And best of all, the boys are retaining what we learn with HOD. That didn't happen with my cobbled together stuff we used before. :-)
