Summer break is winding down for most of us. Well, for us, it is winding down. We started back with a light load of homeschooling about three weeks ago. The boys are doing math and Bible for now. We are participating in a supplemental co-op this year that will involve a the hands-on parts of a language arts program, history, and science. We don’t start the co-op until the first week of September, so I am using this time to make sure everyone is on track with math. The cop-op days are designed to do a lot of the hands-on stuff, while the rest of the week we will spend teaching thecore parts of the curriculum from the same materials in our own homes.

I hope to take a beginning of year photo. I have a 10th grader, 6th grader, 4th grader, 2nd grader, and a preschooler this year. My daughter will graduate from community college at the end of this semester. I am still a full-time college student online, and I should have my bachelor’s degree around this time next year. (A lot of my “spare” time is spent on my school work, so my blog is neglected a lot.)

Here’s what we are using this year, in case you are interested:

high school – Apologia Biology, IEW Level C, AIG’s Western Civilization, Saxon Algebra 2, Lifepac Bible

elementary – Apologia Human Anatomy; IEW Level A; AIG’s Western Civ, Saxon (Grades 6, 4, and 2), Lifepac Bible

preschool – nothing structured planned. He hangs out with us most of the time. Lots of coloring, playdough, building blocks, and reading to him.

So that is the “scoop” on our school year. We are having a good time together —- learning, living, loving life.

Until next time,
