I sat down to lesson plan for this week last night.
While I was at it I went a head and did the calculations to see when we would be finishing things up and moving onto the next grade.
We school year round. There is no real stopping point for us. If we finish a book we start a new one. Then when we take a break, it is just a break and we pick up where we left off.
Well I was looking at the kids' math books. Dd(5) will be done with her math in 3 weeks. Then she will be starting a first grade math. DS(7) will be done with his first grade math the second week in April.Then he can start 2nd grade math.
Seems like we just started these books a few months ago. As exciting as it is to see them finish these books and know we are moving forward, it is just crazy how fast it seems to be going!

As we get older, time goes faster and faster.

 I read somewhere once (can't find it now or would share link) everything taught in traditional schools that take 12 years to learn actually only takes a few years by homeschoolers because the distractions & restrictions of the classroom don't apply to the homeschool setting.

That is one of the perks of homeschooling. On the one hand, you do WAY more schooling but, on the other hand, You are done much faster than if you went by the schedule the public system is set on.  :)

Yay for your kiddos!!!!  That would scare me a little.  My youngest DD could move at a faster pace than she is going, but she doesn't want to pick up the pace.  LOL  I just move at her speed.  Seems like your kids are just getting it and flying right along.
