Bryson is old enough to start preschool, but I really wanted teach him at home his first year.
Call me crazy, but I will never have this time with him again, so I want to
take full advantage of it by spending as much time with him while I still can!
I'll let him grow up and go to a "real" preschool next year. :)

We've had so much fun his first week of school!
We've been spending one hour every day focusing on one new letter.
My mom is a 2nd grade teacher and hooked me up with some great stuff from her school to help me teach him. Nonni also sent me home with a great set of learning tools, so I'm totally set.

Each day I pack his little "school suitcase" full of all things pertaining to the letter of the day.
Here's a look at what we've done this week.
