#makeovermonday / today begins the Academy at Old Haigler

the daily Starr makeover monday blog

Today begins one of the biggest #makeovermonday transformations we’ve ever tackled as a family.

Today, the Haiglers officially started homeschooling.

Y’all. I’ll wait right here while you catch your breath…

YES. We are homeschooling.

I know, I know, I know.

There will be a thousand opinions and some may think we’re crazy. We’ve considered all our options and this feels like the path for our family to take right now in our journey. I’ll share more on how we got to this decision later in another post.

We couldn’t be more excited!!

Instead of the traditional front porch photos of a first day of school, I captured our day mostly in PJs. Yes, I did.

We started our morning with fun exercises to VBS music in the living room.

These songs got stuck in our head all day long and I couldn’t think of a better way to start our day. We might just do this everyday.

Then, Kayla did math. With dad.

We ventured out to run some errands and get school supplies.

Brock actually begins preschool at a church near our house next week. He’s most excited about the Paw-Patrol book bag, I do believe.

Here is the part where a true Starr makeover comes into play. I’d like to tell you that I have finished an amazing homeschool room in our new cottage. Something like this:

Who am I kidding????!?!

Instead, our room looked like this most of the day:

We did manage to get the table cleaned off and a few things put up on the wall to make it more fun.

Yes, I’d call this a successful first day.

Stay tuned, this year is going to be an adventure. We’ll bring you along as we figure it all out!

  1. I love this, can’t wait to hear the back story😊😊 on this with your beautiful family. What a precious way to start the day and school year. How amazing is it that you can start the day by thanking and worshipping, not as a matter of rote or checklist but from the heart🙌🙌💙💖💖

  3. I love lil Brock. My grandson begins daycare on Sept 4th (he’s 2) – only for 1/2 days though. This will take some getting used too (the parents/grandparents) but I’m sure #babyamir will do just fine. I think I need a new hashtag – he’s growing up way too fast!
