The schoolyear has officially begun for Integritas Academy! We started with a 'First Day of School' photo.
Followed by prayer time and Bible lessons. L2 was so sweet as she prayed for a family friend.

After lunch we had our 'fun' subjects. Story of the World for History and Exploring Creation with Flying Creatures for Science. The coolest part was this fun 'air pressure' experiment.
