2014-2015 Curriculum

This year's curriculum has been ordered and to my joy has arrived. I find it kind of scary how excited I got about its arrival. I have to wonder what the Fed Ex guy was thinking as I ran out of the house at the sound of his truck stopping near my house.

On tap for 2014-2015.. back by popular demand is.... Sonlight! I loved Sonlight last year and am looking forward to another good year. Despite doing Core B last year we are stepping back to Core A. When I chose Core B last year I was choosing a core just for Rachael, not expecting to keep do the same core with the boys.

2013-2014 School debrief

We made it through our first year of "officially homeschooling" in early May. After the first two weeks, our honeymoon period, we hit a few rough spots but we still came out well . First, the harder parts so I can finish with the good stuff.

Two curriculums were too much. The plan was My Father's World kindergarten for the boys and Sonlight Core B, for my daughter. We did alright for a while but a couple months in I was overwhelmed. I thought is was just difficult because part of our life became unsettled as we were trying to help an other family in a tough place.

Our Homeschooling is now OFFICIAL.

It is official, I have notified our school district that we will be homeschooling our 6 yr. old daughter. I bounded around with excitement and told anyone who would listen after I turned in our letter of intent.

Another milestone we have now passed is purchasing curriculum. I have met and read blogs of amazing homeschool parents who create there own curriculum or at least make there own lesson plans but alas that is not what I am able to do.
