2011-2012 Curriculum

We began homeschooling in June 2009. We had just moved back to GA in January 2009 and the last part of the school year didn't go very well. We dove into homeschool as soon as the regular school year ended and never looked back. Now we take June and July off for summer break, but we start our summer school a few weeks into August.

In January 2011, I changed things up a bit and finally found some curriculums I could fully get behind. Since it was January we did not finish them by May when we ended our school year so we are continuing where we left off this fall. I didn't want to skip anything that I thought they knew and find out later that they didn't know it. So we started from the beginning of the curriculums in January. We are going to double up some lessons this fall so by January 2012 year we are caught up to where we are "supposed" to be.

The Fun Stuff
Farm Boy is still taking taekwondo. Music Man will have drum lessons. Both will be taking a boys breakdancing class at a local not-for-profit dance studio. They are also both taking Homeschool PE at a local recreation department. I'm still hoping to add art in to our schedule somewhere.


  1. Have a wonderful year.

  2. Stopping by from the NBTS Blog Hop! Hope you have a great year! The breakdancing class sounds interesting... I'm sure that would be fun to watch!
