As we sit and wait for official paper orders to come in, we need to get some things cleaned up and organized. Both hubby and I are finishing out our terms, mine ends today and his next week. We have to pull the camper out and clean it good before moving into it. I have to organize everything we need to live on for the next 4-6 months. I also need to week through some things in the house. Thankfully, I'd already started doing that so I don't have too much more to do.
One of the things, I had to finalize was our plans for next year. Since I won't have a mailbox for the next however many months, I have to order all of our curriculum and get it before we leave the house. Here's what I have lined up for next year:
Girls: Daily Geography from Evan Moor
We will be doing three continent studies using lapbooks from Hands of a Child: Antartica, Africa, and Asia. After each continent we will then do a habitat study: grassland, polar, and mountian. Then we will do a short study on an animal or two that we find in each continent. I will probably use some free lapbooks I find on homeschool share.com for those.

After reading my last post, my dad wanted to let everyone know that the casinos in CA aren't as nice as the ones in WA. He's sad not to come back here either.
Well, I'm off to clean up. Kev left on Wed, and Princess got really sick on Thursday. She's still running a fever and has a really bad sore throat. Poor thing was so sick last night that I went this morning to take my final and only stayed for ten minutes. I was too worried about her. I did enough so that I should get a C in the class, not my usual A, but you have to do what you have to do. I'm surprised that I've not run into this problem before.
Have a wonderful week!
