Even More Changes
Who would have thought that choosing the right curriculum would be so hard? But alas, that is the way of homeschooling. I have been congratulated on a couple of my online groups for being brave enough to change. Apparently that's something that "newbies" don't do very often.
This past week I ordered Apologia Science (Elementary Astronomy) and Sonlight Core 1+2. The Sonlight is for reading, history, and geography. Even though CG is not a huge fan of reading we are going to give it a whirl. He likes to be read to and enjoys the days we curl up on the couch and read together - so this should make school a lot more fun for him. I also ordered a kit to go with the science - it has all the things you need to do the hands on in the science book. Science + hands on = extremely happy CG!
I also ordered some grade one books on the Lutheran Faith. I know, he's in second - but lets face it; our church ways have been pretty minimal. So I figured we could do the grade one stuff here at home - he'll get the grade two stuff at Sunday School.
So, after we get all our new stuff next week I will hopefully be able to tell you we are settled and finally loving everything about homeschooling!
