I had high hopes.
We were going to get started on our curriculum today; however, I got side-tracked. Side-tracked by the Olympics, by sorting out clothes and cleaning the house to give stuff away for a garage sale, by visiting a friend I see only every two years, by putting together a calendar binder for our morning meeting time, by working on writing up some preschool curriculum, and by having insane insomnia. Ack!
I think we’ll just do a kick-off day on Thursday instead!
In the meantime, I thought I’d share what we’re doing for our homeschool curriculum this year. I always find it interesting to see what my friends are using for curriculum, and you can find more curriculum choices and ideas over at the Not-Back-to-School Blog Hop at iHomeschoolNetwork!
Here is our homeschool curriculum *list* for 2012-2013.
Please note: This list is schedule to change without notice! 😉 As a homeschool mom, I reserve the right to change my mind, lose my mind, or renew my mind. Any of the above may lead to a change of curriculum. It happens….
