Hello, friendly friends!
Getting back into the swing of homeschooling-things since Christmas
has been a struggle.
We nearly fell to pieces last week.
There was crying.
Whining and thrashing-about.
And the kids were out of sorts, too.
But this week I put on my strict-old-schoolmarm hat and
We mixed up the routine a bit and it worked fairly well.
And after feeling convinced a week ago that I would send these darlings
off to boarding school next year,
I do think we may stick this homeschooling thing out for another year.
But we'll see.
So now I'm in the mood to start planning and figuring out
what curriculum (or hodge-podge thereof) we'll use.
And I'd love YOUR help!
Well, those of you with proven expertise, that is.
Right now we're having great success with A Beka.
That's probably what I'll use for Isaiah, since I already own a lot of
what I need for him.
But for Lucy, I'm thinking of throwing in something different,
at least for a subject or two.
She's a worksheet-kind-of-girl...but I think something on the computer,
or completely outside the box (whatever that would be),
might be fun for her.
She'll be in third grade.
Tell me your thoughts!
