I'm working on lesson planning while waiting on this baby to be born. My due date is today and he doesn't seem at all eager to be born, so rather than sit and wait I'm trying to be productive. I'm not exactly sure which day we will start school. It will depend a lot on when the baby arrives and how quickly we all settle into a routine.
This year, I will be doing something a little different in our home school. I have enrolled the children in Classical Conversations and it will begin on September 1. I'm looking forward to this and have at least 2 kids that I think will just love it. The younger two just love memorizing and this seems to be well suited to them. I'm crossing my fingers for the oldest. Memory work isn't her strong suit, but I'm hoping that she will love it just the same.
I updated the sidebar of things we will learn to reflect the upcoming year. I don't have everything listed as I have not ordered some things yet. After I order logic and Latin and a few other books, I'll be sure and add them to the list. Currently this list is just the things we will cover the first 6 weeks of school. So my lofty goal is to update that list every 6 weeks. We will see how that goes.
