Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho, it's off to school we go....

Or not.... :)

It's funny how the Lord does things for our good that we don't even realize. I had planned on starting our school year more than a month ago. Then life happened. For the last month, I have thought little about schooling and just focused on family. I believe it's the first month since we started homeschooling (eight years ago!) that I haven't been overwhelmed mentally by thoughts of school. It's been a very pleasant, albeit unplanned, reprieve!

Many homeschool moms talk about that magical year when they finally found their groove; things just clicked. From what I've read, that normally comes two or three years into it. Leave it to me to be a late bloomer; I believe I am only now feeling this way!  I think perhaps it has a lot to do with our lifestyle. With my husband in the ministry, we have had a lot of changes in our lives over the years....moving from state to state, health issues, life....This year feels different - in a good way!

Enough rambling. For those like me who enjoy seeing what others are doing, here is our list:
Bible: The Narrow Way from Pearables
Math: Teaching Textbooks (1g12): I am particularly excited about this curriculum and have wanted to try it for a couple of years now. Thanks to other homeschooling moms purchasing our used curriculum, I was able to buy this for our eldest daughter. What a blessing!
A Beka (2&3g8)
English: Landmark (1g12); Alpha & Omega (2&3g8). Spelling is incorporated into both of these programs.
Literature: ACE (1g12); A Beka (2&3g8)
Handwriting: A Beka (2&3g8)
Science: Apologia, Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy & Physiology (All). I am so excited about this course! I loved biology in school and am hoping the girls will enjoy it as well!
History: My Father's Word & A Beka (All). We didn't quite make it through MFW Geography last year so I am combining it with A Beka's History of the World.
And that about does it! If you have a blog and have shared your curriculum choices for the year, please post a comment and let me know! And if you have any questions as to why we chose a certain curriculum, please feel free to ask!

Have a blessed day!
