Curriculum 2010-2011

Well we are winding down the majority of the summer. It will be back to school in 2 weeks in our house. Looking forward to getting back into it, new things going this year. Bry will be a 6th grader and my little man will be a kindergartner, that time went way to fast for me. He is excited, already wants to start school. I think our curriculum choices are pretty much final just a few more things to pick up.
Our Curriculum for the 2010-2011 school year:
History: Heart of Dakota--Creation to Christ
Math: Math U See--finish using Epsilon and then move into Zeta (love this program)
Science: Heart of Dakota--various books
Grammar: Shurley English
Spelling: Soaring with Spelling and vocabulary
Reading: Finish Little House on Prarie Primer and start Drawn into the Heart of Reading

History: Heart of Dakota--Little Hearts for His Glory
Math: Math U See--Primer
Science: Gods Wonderful Works
Phonics: Reading Made Easy The Reading Lesson
Writing: A Reason for Handwriting

We are going to go into it slow, have school for 3 weeks and then we are heading out for our family vacation. When we get back it will be time to really get into our schooling. I am  a little nervous about schooling two this year and being there are so many years apart kind of hard to do a lot with them together right now. I think we are going to do some unit studies together, looking at doing a study on chocolate first...yummy!

Hope all of my fellow homeschoolers are having a great summer and look forward to seeing what your school year brings for your family as well.

Our week....

We have been super busy this week...It all started with a family reunion last Saturday. I enjoy being around my family and seeing everyone I dont get to see that often.  Then that night we had some friends over for swimming and food. Sunday the 4th we went to church and then after the evening service we had fellowship. Headed home, changed clothes and then went out to see the fireworks.

Starting Monday I went with a friend shopping had a lot of fun. Although didnt know how to act not having the kids to worry about or constantly hearing my name being called. Tuesday I took the kids to a free summer movie at the theater and upon arrival there we received coupons for the kids to get a Chick-Fil-A kids meal free...so guess where we went for lunch, yep you guessed it Chick-Fil-A. Went to Barnes and Noble, love going in there and relaxing and looking at books with the kids. Today we went swimming with some friends and have just been hanging out since we got home.

Whats your week been like?
