I guess I’d better make my New Year’s post before the clock rolls over.
I’ve been a bit preoccupied lately. School starts next week and I’m trying to put together a workable homeschool curriculum. There’s no shortage of sources, but reviewing them and finding the right ones can be very time consuming.
Of course, I also have to work, keep up with the housework, make sure we’re both fed and still make time to relax and laugh with my sweet pea. It’s a challenge, but we’ll work together and get it done.
We’re very excited about homeschooling! I believe I’ve found the perfect science curriculum; it’s from Evolution and the Nature of Science Institutes (ENSI). We’ll start with a unit called Nature of Science. It teaches what science is and is not, discusses the limits of science and corrects misconceptions about it, and eventually leads to a study of human evolution.
I’m really looking forward to this course of study.
My son also wants to study the American Revolution. I’m pretty sure I’ll use BBC History as a guide, but if anyone knows of other good sources for teaching this subject, please post a link in comments. I need to put the lesson together over the weekend, so I’ll take all the help I can get.
Everything else is coming together nicely. This year is going to be great!
- We’ll get Mike’s immigration taken care of and we can finally live as a family on the same continent!
- I have made a wonderful friend who is more like the big sister I never had, and I look forward to the continued growth of that relationship.
- Barack Obama will be sworn in as President of the United States.
- We’re happy, healthy and loved.
Happy New Year, readers, friends and loved ones. May we continue to grow, learn, share and laugh together.
Peace and happiness to you all!
