Yeah, I am trying to figure us out, too.

Honestly I'm not sure where this month will take us.

Awesome, if everyone is alive and you aren't in jail then the year was a success!

Quoting KrissyKC:

Currently?   Just surviving to finish this year.   It has not been as successful as I've wanted it to be.  

I want to keep plugging away at English and some of the fun writing things we have to work on.   I'm also considering hiring a retired English teacher I met at the park one day to tutor my kids in writing.   She gave me her number, so I have to call and see if she is still interested and what her time frame is like.

She tells the truth. The first couple years are successful so long as your sanity is intact.

One of the biggest, that most would know on here, is Ulysses S. Grant, by just a few generations. His cousin married my husband's great, great, great (forgot the number of greats, will have to read again) grandmother. We are also related to someone who created (this one I haven't done enough research to have it down pat) one of the native American languages. We just discovered this one so I need to get more familiar with it. Kind of neat and a great way to bring history alive to kids.
Quoting mem82:

Oh, neat! Who are you related to in history?

Quoting OFIH:

We don't use any type of unit studies. We are studying the Trail of Tears in history, our own family history (it's actually very cool, we are related to some neat people in history that we can discuss), and then continuing with our typical studies.

Since this coming school year will be my first time to homeschool my son with autism. I want to find out where he's at so, I bought complete curriculum from Grade 1-5, Complete Sight Words, and I also signed up for time4learning. I started to introduce the hs last month and took advantage of spring break. So far, I've learned he can do workbooks and time4learning with no problem.

We dropped the extended school year already so, we will pretty much do workbooks and time4learning this coming April.
