Yep, we start our lessons next week. I’m not sure what day we will start, I don’t have Paul’s schedule yet. For those new to my blog, my husband works retail, so we school 4 days a week, and those days change depending on what days Paul works. So I’m guessing we will start school on Monday the 13th, but if Paul has that day off, then we’ll start on whatever day he’s working. We’ll know on Thursday exactly what day we start on.
Tomorrow we are taking the kids out for the back to school lunch. It’s a fun way to start school up again. We take the kids out to lunch, bring their new schedules with and talk with them about what is expected of them during school. Then we enjoy a nice lunch together. This year we are going to go school supply shopping afterward. Do we really need more school supplies? Probably not, but they are so much fun to buy. 😉
I just finished tonight typing up the schedules and objectives for the kids (talk about cutting it close 😉 ). I think the only thing I have to do is get their Spanish workbook printed out. It’s on the Rosetta Stone CD, and last year I printed it out myself, that’s not going to happen again. I’m hoping I can upload the file to Staples and have them print it off for me. It just took too much ink, paper and time last year. I’m hoping it doesn’t cost too much at Staples, we’ll see.
Sarah’s schedule is pretty much the same, but Paulie’s has changed quite a bit. Now that he is entering high school, he will definitely have more work to do and all of it on his own. He was still doing science with me and history with Sarah, that is not happening this year. So I think Paulie will have the most to adjust too. Though Sarah will have a bit of an adjustment, she will be taking her first online college course. It’s a writing course she’ll be starting sometime in October or November. We decided to not have her start it right away. Thankfully they offer these classes every 6 weeks, so it will be easy for her to start later.
You know how much I like to put photos in my posts but I haven’t been taking my camera out like I should be, and I actually forgot the camera when we went to the lake last week. 🙁 So I had to use my iTouch. It was a fun day at the beach.
