2008-2009 School Year: 2nd grade here we come!

In honor of this new school year I thought I would finally start up a blog to chronicle¬† our adventures (I’ve had enough people hounding me to do this- yes you Val!).¬† As my first entry I figured I’d provide blogworld with some links and info on our plans for this year.

The core of our studies will come from My Father’s World curriculum, in particular the set Exploring Countries and Cultures

Our electives consist of piano, latin, sewing, 3D drawing with after school activities of YMCA, cubscouts and possibly dance.

Music for Little Mozarts

Prima Latina

For sewing at this point I’m just planning small projects for the kids to do once a week using their sewing machine, eventually I may have them work through the following books (I already have some of these and really like the format and content)

The Draw Squad (anyone else remember running home from school so you didn’t miss Commander Mark on PBS?)

YMCA homeschool PE; local branch offering swimming and variety of sports opportunities

Elias will likely be in Cubscouts as well and we are still debating Hannah’s involvement in possibly Celtic dance or some sort of Girlscout opportunities.

Elias is now 8yrs old and Hannah will be 7 next month (end of September).

They continue to be really good friends.
