Our Curriculum Plans for 2012-13

I guess we're already approaching that time of year when we plan for the next school year. I can't wrap my head around finishing THIS year! Whether you need ideas for curriculum or want a review, here is what we plan to use for 2012-13. Most of it we buy from Catholic Heritage Curricula at unless listed otherwise.

[Side Note: We're on an extremely long waiting list for charter school, so we're going to have to tough it out for a few years at least. Hence the book list. I think I mostly hit a weak moment. Please pray for me, and us.]

  1. Your kiddos are so cute and have gotten so big!!

    I thought you had decided to do the charter school? I think we are going to do Connections Academy (online public school) for Jedi (7th grade next year)

    Cute blog template!

    Hope things are going good for you, God bless!

  2. OH.MY.GOSH! I loved the pictures of the little ones!

    Blessings for a great next year and a quick and painless ending of this year (I think my two years will blur together - ah, to figure out how to go faster this year!)


  3. Looks like a lot of fun!!! I love the little caption for the picture of your little man at the end. Perfect! Just stopping over from Sanctus Simplicitus, I see I have some visitors from your blog. I'll have to spend some more time looking around :) If you need a Catholic homeschool planner for this coming year we just released one that allows planning for home school and the liturgical year. God bless!


Thank you for reading about our family. I look forwards to sharing ideas, joys and struggles. God Bless you in your journey!
