About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Library Ladies

Still tying up some loose ends, but have decided to go with A World of Adventure as our primary curriculum this year.  It's a wonderful unit study of the ancient world including Egypt, Greece and Roman. All subjects are covered, except Math.  I had heard good things about this curriculum but what closed the deal for me is that the curriculum includes a game!  As you progress, you play the board game to reinforce all that you have learned.  Love it!

We will also be supplementing with Deeper Roots: Discovering Our Amazing God (which I will be reviewing in September), Abeka for American History, Apologia Science  (still finishing from last year), ACE workbooks as well as IXL Math.

Can you tell I am a bit of a curriculum junkie?
It's an illness that I can't seem to shake.
Must. try. everything. once.

It's the same with books.
The library ladies put a limit on books you could check out.
Because of me.

I'm going to go read now.
