The Planning Begins …

It is that time of year again – time to plan for our new homeschool year. This begins our 5th year homeschooling and each year it gets just a little bit easier – planning wise. Today I began wrapping up our lesson plans for the first six weeks of school. We begin officially on the 23rd of August – which may sound early to some of you but, is actually 2 1/2 weeks after the public school system starts back here.

So here is what our year will look like …

I am excited for a new year to begin especially after attending our small homeschool group meeting last night. We are beginning our third year together with the addition of a few new faces. It is always wonderful to get together with these ladies and hear everyone’s plans and how God is working in their lives. Next week I will attend our church’s homeschool support group. I have taken on the role of Field Trip Coordinator this year and I can’t wait to tell everyone about the fun trips we have planned.
