A couple of you have asked what we're doing for school this year ~ I had planned to write an entire post on each of these once we get into the swing of the year. I may still do this - but at this point, just thought I'd get the info posted in a timely fashion instead!
Here are the things we'll be exploring/using in our home educating this year:
* My Father's World - Emily will be officially in Kindergarten this year as we begin the MFW 1st grade. I loved doing this last year and am looking forward to another year in MFW.
* Classical Conversations - Emily and Rachel will both be in the Abecedarians class in this once a week program. We are new to this and I'll also be tutoring Rachel's class. I plan to share more about CC when I get my bearings about me!
* Little Keepers at Home - Emily and Rachel will be doing this with two other little girls (a set of sisters) from church. We plan to meet once a month and work on one spiritual growth project and one homekeeping or craft project. We'll also let the little ladies have a tea party together each time.
* Awana - both girls will be joining the Awana group at church. I've greatly hesitated at adding another outside commitment, but know that the program is very quality and we're willing to try it and see how it goes. I love that they will be memorizing Scripture and learning God's Word!
Not a curriculum note, but with school starting - we'll be packing our lunch for CC days each week. Look at these cute reusable sandwich bags! (HT: The Motherload) They were super easy and I can't wait to try them!!!
