Back to School


We will start up our new school year in two weeks. I'm all organized and planned and ready - NOT!

But I do have curriculum ready to go. Here's what we are doing this year.

Zach (10th grade) - Liberty Online Academy
We did this last semester and it worked out great. All the work is done or submitted online. They keep grades and transcripts. All I have to do is make sure he gets the work done. He will finish high school with this program. He will also participate in a homeschool band.

Jon (5th grade) - Christian Light
We're trying something new this year. I have used Abeka with him for the last few years and I loved it up until last year. I wanted something where he could be a little more independent and that didn't require so much lesson planning on my part. His subjects include math, language arts (including spelling), science, North American history, and reading. I think I'm going to like it. Jon will also be in the homeschool band and play soccer.

Ben (2nd grade) - A Beka
I love this curriculum for the early grades. All of my boys learned to read with A Beka. Ben isn't old enough for band yet, but I'll be teaching him piano again and he'll also be playing soccer.

I'll also be using Lee Stobel's apologetics books for kids for our Bible time.

I am actually looking forward to getting started again. I love our lazy summers, but I'm ready to get back on a schedule.

Your blog is cute!

Is the band organized by a HS group/coop? I am considering letting my oldest join the PS band. Waffling.

Thanks so much for participating in the NBTS Blog Hop.

We're twins!!! My name is Robin, and I'm a wife, mom, Christ follower, homeschooler, knitter, and digiscrapper too! What's the odds? It's not perfect, though, as I'm not a big fan of pink and you blog is almost all pink. Still, I enjoyed your post. Thank you for sharing on the Blog Hop.
