Whew!  Now that I’ve typed it all up, it sounds like a lot for one year, doesn’t it? Surprised smile

Keep in mind that we do not use a full, all encompassing program and so there are a lot of bits and pieces that fit together into the whole.  Next week I’ll talk about how I’m organizing our days so we can get everything done.

Until then, what are your plans for the homeschool year?
