Well, okay, not quite mid year review.
Everything is working well for us but history and art.
TLs art program, Artistic Pursuits is a nice program but its not really working for us. It assumes that you already know how to sketch, which he really doesn't. I'm looking into other programs or looking into a lower level for him to learn the sketching part. The girls are using Meet the Masters and I don't love it. Their program teaches them about the different artists, but does very little drawing.
History. Love history! I'm a history major. With the move to the farm with lots more to do and starting school back up in January, I've decided to go ahead and purchase a history curriculum. I just cant keep designing our own. I love to do it but have been so busy, its been hodge podge for a couple of weeks. I really want to do a good job and make it interesting so I've decided to go ahead and get Tapestry of Grace. We will start mid year three and then move into year four next year. I'm very excited about it. I'm looking forward to this move for us. It will relieve alot of pressure off of me!
Writing-The big girls are going to start IEW's SWI level A. TL is finishing up Rockets, Radar, and Robots. I'm going to move him into SICC level C as soon as he's done. It will take us till mid year next year.
Everything else is working and flowing well. The girls are finishing up their grammer from last year and Im going to move them into Easy Grammer for the rest of the year.
Our weeks have been really busy and I'm so behind for Christmas. I don't have any baking or shopping done!! I cant believe I am this far behind. I plan on working hard to get caught up this week so I can enjoy my hubby being here for two weeks!!
Have a wonderful and enjoyable Christmas season!!
