In retail when they open a store with very little fan fair, just to see how it goes, it's called a Soft Opening....then in a few weeks after all the hiccups are worked out, they have the "Grand Opening..."
School started today as a "soft opening." We've been so busy on the farm and with the CSA and with SALSA...that school snuck up on us. So this morning there was a scramble to figure out what Boy was going to work on while I had milk delivery and "town day". Next week (or soon..) I will hopefully have it together and have the chalkboard "First day of School" photos..as this is likely our last year of Homeschool (sniff, sniff).
Here he's working on....um...something...maybe science? at Nana & Pawpa's house.
