We are going to follow a schedule.  With two 10th graders and a 1st grader I am goint to need a schedule.  My 1st grader does not use DVDs or anything so she will take a little more time this year.  My 10th graders will be using Teaching Textbooks for Algebra 2 or Geometry (I've not decided yet) and a DVD for Biology, but everything else is either completely independent or me explaining something.  So, I know that I will need a more structured schedule this year to make sure we get everything done.  I also believe that it will help my daughter to be more structured as well.

I have to admit, I hate birds in the house but I hope you guys have fun! LOL (My parrots used to breed cockatils and their cage was right by my bedroom door. I had to listen to all the baby birds all night long. yuck!)

Quoting Rust.n.Gears:

Well we are starting going to an Alanon / Alateen group on Thursday and will be doing in depth studies on alcoholism due to my kids addicted grandmother.

Then we have a new African Grey Parrot so that has been a recent change that will continue. We just got home from the Parrot Emporium actually and go almost every day now. Rubius will be doing clicker training soon and we are trying to expand his vocabulary.

I can't wait to hear how you liked using the Easy Peasy AN1 curriculum.

Quoting Angela4boys:

Last year I purchased a boxed curriculum, and this year we are using mainly easy peasy all in one...I'm also planning on using a lot more Netflix, and incorporating community service/volunteering.

Last year was boring and repetitive...but we just moved and were in the midst of remodeling. Looking forward to more variety!
