So, Here's The Plan...

So, for the record, here are our subjects for the year, and how we plan to tackle them...

Caylie...11th Grade

Most of Caylie's classes are going to be done in group settings. She loves "CoOp"! In our city, there are about 100 homeschoolers that attend a wonderful high school CoOp on Mondays and Wednesdays. Caylie's CoOp classes this year are...

*Algebra 2
*Spanish 2

She will be taking Apologia Chemistry from a teacher that holds a few science classes in her home. Caylie will attend this class with 5 other homeschool friends.

Her "at home" subjects will be...

*World History (modified Sonlight)
*World View (selected memory verses and books)
*Grammar (ABeka)
*Vocabulary (Wordly Wise)

Last year, she did not do Grammar and Vocabulary, but we are adding them this year as extra preparation for standardized testing.

In addition to her academic classes, Caylie is excited about remaining active with the youth group at our church, taking guitar lessons, playing volleyball with our homeschool sports organization, and hopes to participate in some local theater.

Christian...7th Grade

Christian's courses this year are...

*Pre-Algebra (Aleks.com)
*Physical Science (Apologia)
*Writing (IEW)
*Grammar (ABeka)
*Vocabulary (Wordly Wise)
*Spelling (Spelling Power)
*World History Part 2 (modified Sonlight)
*World View (selected memory verses and books)

Christian also participates in our Homeschool Academy that meets one day a week. He gets to take Art, as well as several other classes. He really enjoys his days at Academy.

Starting in the winter, Christian will participate in a 4H Science day camp, called SEEK, that meets one day a week for 12 weeks. He did this last year and really enjoyed it. They spend most of the day outdoors, studying science. Last year they dissected fish, and lots of other "fun" stuff that I am happy to NOT be doing at home! :)

Christian will also remain active with our youth group, as well as participating in football, basketball, and guitar lessons.


Never a dull moment around here!

Writing the Waves,

Hey Christi,
After reading back thru your blog, I realized I know of your family...Corey did mother/baby photos and a family photo for us years ago. Actually I called to schedule Lainey's and he had JUST left the business:( Anyway, I do remember seeing Corey at some LRCA function carrying a baby around!! He is too cute.

Where did ya'll have your last year's Christmas card photos taken? So nice...

I look forward to keeping up with you thru blogland!
