First week is in the bag!

I will post more details over the holiday weekend - but I wanted to let everyone know that our first week of lessons is complete. And it ended much better than it began! After Tuesday, I was just about ready to give up!

It has been a crazy busy week, but that's OK. It is what it is, and we will adjust. Everyone is already much more efficient than they were on Monday. We have a few more subjects to add, but I think we'll be OK.

As I said... more details will come soon.

Term One is all planned out!

I can't believe how fast that went! All of Term One is planned out, and most of the rest of the year is, too. Now I can start pre-reading and hopefully getting ahead of the kids before the school year starts!

I can't begin to describe how completely different this planning season has been! It's so nice not to be lamenting over everything. Of course, I look at these spreadsheets and wonder how on earth we're going to get it all done!!! And I've already thrown in the towel and purchased Apologia Biology instead of planning it out on my own. But one valuable lesson I have learned is that the stuff that gets done is better (even if it's not "perfect") than the perfect stuff that sits on my shelf because I can't get it planned out!

It's going to be a busy school year... but hopefully it will be an enjoyable one for all of us!
