Getting ready for fall!

 I'm getting anxious!  I know there is a lot I'd like to have done before we officially "start" school in the fall.  We're doing a little schooling through the summer (handwriting and history) but nothing like we will do. 

So far I've:

bought and received any curriculum/books needed

put it all into http://www.homeschoolskedtrack.com/ and PER because I am not sure which I want to use.  Both are free!!

Organized my day, wether we stick to that or not is another story, but it's nice to think we will.  haha

and now I am trying to go through each subject and make sure we have everything we need as far as supplies (art supplies, paper, pencils, crayons, note cards for math, etc etc)

I'm also trying to read the book A Charlotte Mason Companion, which seems to be taking me a while. 

What have you done to get ready??  I know a lot of you school year round, or unschool.  I guess I'm just excited :)

I am SO excited for this fall since it will be our first official year for homeschooling.  I'm probably pretty well set with supplies but I know I'll buy more once those sales start rolling out, lol.

I've picked most of my curriculum and have at least started purchasing it.  I know I have a lot to do to get things "ready" but I feel like I can't tackle that until I know where we're going to be living (which there is about a 99% chance it won't be in our current state).

I'm in the process too. My oldest is officially K and I want to make sure I have all the basics in mind. I'm feeling a little anxious here and there, but trying not to get stressed.
