So I've started pulling out school supplies and books and things to prep for the school year. Since I bought complete curriculums for each child this year it is going to be much easier. Can I get an hallelujah!?!?!
I got 3 levels from Heart of Dakota this year. A and M will be working through Creation to Christ. G will be doing Beyond LIttle Hearts for His Glory. And L will be doing LIttle Hands to Heaven. I am very excited about the lesson plans and such that come with buying a complete curriculum. I hope that the kids all do well with this style of learning....cause I'm very excited about it and comfortable with the idea of using it till we are finished. :) Not only will they be doing the complete curriculum but we add in creative writing, foreign language, and keyboarding. G does reading and phonics practice and we do family read alouds as well.
I still need to get all of it organized and put away but I have to figure out where/how to do that since my bookshelves all changed in the midst of the kitchen remodel that we are not finished with yet. :/
In the meantime, I've been thinking about our fall schedule....and trying not to cry (not really-I don't cry that easily)....but seriously...
Monday- taekwondo in the evening
Tuesday- G violin lessons in the afternoon
Wednesday- I was hoping to sign them up for art classes that a studio nearby has just for homeschoolers- I REALLY want them to have this opportunity. And Awana in the evening.
Thursday- A and M music lessons were switched to Thursday afternoon because of a conflict that arose with their teacher's schedule
Friday- hangout and library afternoon. (that we would love to attend but rarely make it to)
So what is gonna give? When am I going to clean the house or cook or eat or sleep? How are we going to complete school work? We are going to have to figure something out....
In the meantime (this is the warning part)....if anyone questions if I'm worried about my kids "socialization", I have martial arts training and I am not afraid to use it.
