Must do - I made my shopping list for the WHO convention, and I'm not even going to think about it until the materials arrive on my doorstep!!!
Little Sis - Wants to play drums (I got a set at a garage sale CHEAP). Can't stop drawing!
Big Sis - wants to do more science experiments. Can't stop reading. Can't stop cluttering up her room with unfinished knitting and crocheting projects (most of which she's designed herself). When school's in session I make her work for 20 minutes each day on ONE project until it's done.
So many people have been talking about Notgrass! I think I'll have to look at that book at the curriculum fair. It's become very popular, and I'm eager to see what it looks like.
My son is in 8th grade next year so we are getting ready to get ready for high school. We are using Apologia's 8th grade science to get ready for Biology in 9th grade; he will finish Saxon Algebra 1; he uses Abeka language arts, and we will do Mystery of History 3 which will set us up for American History in 9th grade. (I am strongly considering Notgrass's American History and Literature.) He is also doing Latina Christiana 2 and Logic, and we will use Answers in Genesis Pilgrim's Progress curriculum for Bible.
Thanks for all your tips!
Sometimes, I post something that really strikes the heart of my readers. An old post I had about measuring character qualities other than academic ones, was one of those posts.
