First Week

Well, we have our first week of school for 2011 under our belt. :) I am excited to see what God has planned for our schooling this year. We are already tweaking our schedule and adding in some fun subjects. Last semester all I could muster was phonics and math.

Katie Jo is beginning Saxon 1 Math this semester. She started at the beginning but wasn't ready, so we held off until Jan. We are also doing Veritas Presses Legends and Legions for geography. I am hoping to get a unit on planets sorted out in the next couple weeks to do also. :) As of right now, we should be done at the end of April. Woo Hoo!

The plan is to take off May, and then pick back up with 2-3 days of school a week through June and July, and then take off a week at the beginning of Aug and then getting going full speed.

I am so thankful to have the privilege of schooling my kiddos at home!!!

I am beginning to think about curriculum for next year. How exciting!!!

Now, if I could just get Eli's schedule figured out I would be good. LOL I am going to try having little containers of things he can do while we do the schooling that he isn't a part of; 1 container for each day. He also has his computer time while we do school.

Joy Michelle is either sleeping or just hanging out with us.

This is my first attempt at moving my blog to incorporate our every day life as well. :) I have several deeper posts I want to do this week. I plan on scheduling my blog time. LOL God is helping me figure out our new normal for 2011, and He will show me when my blog time is. :)
