I think I know which curricula I'll order for my rising 7th grader and my rising kindergartner. I'm going tomorrow to register my eldest for her co-op classes.

I don't think I'll be able to wait until August to start the new year... lol. <---- this is why I still haven't ordered. Once hte books arrive, mom will want to start.

I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff: we have traditional gender roles, we're Catholic, I'm Libertarian, he's Republican, we're both conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol).             Aimee

I'm excited for 7th grade, too!  I have our plan laid out and I'm so ready to start ordering.  I want to wait til June, though, or I'll just start using it all now, lol.

 I'm a bit anxious about next year.  My youngest wants to start "real school."  He wants to start doing math u see like his big brothers, so we ordered the Primer level (he LOVES playing with the manipulatives)

I understand what you are saying about buying the curriculum.  I swore when I started buying ours that it would wait until next year (well July when we start), but those blocks for the math program are AWESOME!!!  So we started using them already.

Yes! We will be in our house! I just cannot wait for Sept. Homeschooling will be much easier. No one else getting in our way with how we live and schooling. Right now we are living with the inlaws and I am grateful for them allowing this while DH is deployed but it has taKen a tole on me. The kids are not as well behaved because no on is consistent and home schooling is harder because grandma is a constant distraction and not because of her. The children always want to ask grandma somehting when we go to bed, start school, etc...

Yes! I just found out three of my local friends are using the same curriculum and even the same level that we have been using for 3 years now. My daughter will actually have two of her friends reading the same books and doing the same assignments! Yay! I've felt like we have been on a curriuclum island.

Oh I am also very excited about the curriculum that I've purchased. I still need to purchase two mroe subjects a kid but it's exciting. I need to get Math U see primer, and then my will be 2nd grader needs to take the assessment test to see which book to buy him. I also need to buy All About Reading pre reading for my kinder and then the assessment test for my will be 2nd grader. I am also wanting to buy the Whistlefritz collection for Spanish. So I have about 400 bucks to spend still.. I am so glad that I won't be having to spend so much after this year. However it's still cheaper than private schooling.

Next year *should* be our first year homeschooling, so I'm pretty excited. I'm not buying a curriculum, mostly planning to unschool and go with the kids' flow for the first year. I hope the stars align and that we actually will get to homeschool!
