Not Back to School Blog Hop

With the Not Back-to-School Blog Hop, its fun to take a peek into other homeschool family’s lives. The month of August is usually dubbed back to school for public school and private schools. For us, its no different.

This first week of August we’re focusing on Curriculum.
Curriculum planning isn’t always easy; especially when there are multiple grade levels under one roof.

I let this event pass me by last year because I had no clue what I was doing curriculum wise; other than what we were starting to review for TOS Homeschool Crew.

This year we’re geared up and about ready to go. I have a plan of action. The first step is executing the purchase…which will be happening this week.
Wanna see our plans? Thought so!

As you can see, this is quite a list. Thankfully we can combine a couple of subjects with the kids.

We purchase everything we can via Christianbook.com. The prices are almost unbeatable AND I got a code for free shipping for any purchase over $35. THAT is done with the first item in the cart!

I didn’t list that we’ll be loading up on library books (after my fine is paid, that is), unit studies that we may decided to do, venturing out on field trips and maybe a couple of co-ops.

Sports and gymnastics are in our sights for the Fall as well as ongoing theater for our oldest daughter. Praise God that she will be getting her own car in about a month.

Let’s see your list!

Happy Homeschooling!!
