Cloee and Luke will both return to the Mother's Day Out program which they loved last year. It is only 2 days a week. Cloee will be in the pre-k class and Luke will be in what they call the "3's" class. Pre-school maybe? I have held them both back 1 year. Cloee's birthday is on September 1st so in the public school system I could do either and they recommended I hold her back. When we had her evaluated for PPCD they said no one they know has ever regretted holding their child back one year. Luke was in an orphanage for the first two years of his life and we feel there is some discrepancy in the age they gave us. Therefore, we are holding him back too.
Jenna will actually start 2nd grade in October. She is completely off of the public school year and I'm okay with that. :) So I won't post about her "new" year until then.
Cade starts 9th grade this year. I absolutely cannot believe I have a high schooler now. Where has the time gone?
He is the one I have been planning for this week. I have planned his start date, finish date and his required 180 days for the year. I will post next week on his curriculum.
He will begin on Friday, August 22nd. This day will only be for perusing his new curriculum and going over lesson plans with him. We will go over goals and expectations also. Then, Monday, August 25th, the real work begins and we will be diving in!
His last day is scheduled for Friday, May 30th. This is tentative because he may need more days off during the year for good weather, illness, etc. ( and yes I said "good" weather off days).
What about socialization you ask? Cade is extremely active in his youth group at Church and they do a LOT! He also plays competitive soccer and will be trying out for the Houston Homeschoolers basketball team and track team. There is also a wonderful homeschool teen group here that also has many get-togethers. So, rest assured, my son is being socialized. ;)
If I can keep up with my blog, my focus will be more on homeschooling I hope. And a little of our life sprinkled in.
