We have started back to school. Made the official move to year round schooling. This allows us a great deal of flexibility when we want to take time off. It's so hot in Houston in the summer so why not do some school so we can take time off when the weather is nice?
Cade's schedule this year (7th grade):
~Horizon's Pre-Algebra. I LOVE Horizons math. And apparently I forgot I really like Algebra-for real!
~Switched on Schoolhouse (SOS) - Language Arts. SOS is computer based. LOVE it.
~SOS - Bible
~SOS - History & Geography
~Apologia Science - Swimming Creatures of the Fifth day. He really wanted to take this class and I've planned some fun fieldtrips.
~Writing - Can't find it right now. Oops.
Cade runs 3 days a week- typically M, W, and F. Basketball tryouts are in September-hopefully he will make the team.
Jenna's schedule this year (1st grade):
~My Father's World - 1st grade. This is a complete curriculum that covers all classes with alot of wonderful read alouds also.
~ Science: This is included in MFW but she will also participate with Cade in Apologia. I think she will enjoy the projects and science experiments.
~ Nature Study will also be included and she has her own sketchbook.
~Her PE consists of playing outside with her friends everyday and walking around the lake.
Daddy doesn't know this yet but I really want to have our science experiments on the weekend and for him to lead them. I will get all of the stuff ready and he will just conduct it. I think all of the kids will enjoy watching them.
Other changes: My blog. I think about it everyday. I feel like I'm headed towards closing it down. Sometimes I think I will post once a week but right now that even seems alot. So, rather that closing it down, I think I will just take a hiatus for a period of time. Not sure how long. When I come back I'm sure I'll link it up to facebook.
