This blog is my attempt to document our busy but BLESSED lives raising and educating our children for His glory. A child of God, wife to one, and mom to 6 fabulous kids. We are in our 9th year of homeschooling using a Classical ~ Charlotte Mason approach.

Come along for the good, the bad & the ugly.

2010 – 2011 Program of study

June2010 box day C gym expo 095

Whew, I am finally done with the planning stage! Just have a few last minute books to purchase and the wonderful back to school supplies.  Pencils, pens, notebooks, binders…Oh My!!! I have been good and restrained from buying any supplies yet…It is hard for this lover of school supplies.

On August 16th we will crack back open the books.  I have to admit I am ready to get back into the swing of things…the girls not so much. That’s normal though, right?
