Not Back to School Blog HopI am participating in the Not Back To School Blog Hop this week. We started school on July 11th but wow the summer has gone by so fast. We have had so much to come up since we started that this week is actually going to be our first full week of school. As I have posted before last year I felt as if school was not that great, we really didnt enjoy it at all. But can I say so far so good this year. Kids are really enjoying school, and are asking to do it everyday! Can you say happy mommy....

So for our curriculum choices we decided to do some stuff together this year and it is working out great. We are doing science and history together. 7th grader has a few harder things to do but the two work together great.

1st grade:
History--Galloping the Globe
Math--Finishing Abeka K math and then on to either Abeka 1st or Math U See
Science--Apologia Exploring Creation with Astronomy
Phonics--Explode the Code
Reading--Still working on Bob Books

7th Grade:
History--Trail Guide to World Geography
Math--Math U See Zeta
Science--Apologia Exploring Creation with Astronomy
English--Total Language Plus(love this has spelling, vocabulary, grammar and reading all in one)

I have a typing software program that I will add to 7th grader soon. Looking to add Bible.. any suggestions?

Of course we are part of a homeschool group and the kids enjoy their time with them too!
