Finally Made my Very Last Minute Purchases!!!

I wanted to write a little about was is going on in our homeschool right now.

As of today, I still don't have all our curricula. I finally {like yesterday} made my decision with what to use for history with Caleb and Brent.
I had decided a few weeks ago to use America the Beautiful with them. Once I had it in my hands and looked it over (even trying a few lessons) I decided it would be too much for me. Not the boys but for me to do. I would be reading everything.
Another reason I decided not to use it with Caleb and Brent, is my two younger boys, Ethan and Lance will use Hideaways in History by WinterPromise. I just knew that I couldn't fit in two different programs. My schedule is already full from 8:00a.m. to 2:00p.m. I scheduled History at 1:30 for Ethan and Lance. There was not another slot for another history session.

That being said, today, I ordered two more Make-Your-Own Hideaway Book from WinterPromise.
I'm going back to plan B or was it C and combining all my four younger students together.

Another 'final' curricula decision that I went back and forth on was Science for Caleb, Brent and Annette. I wanted to combine them all. I was originally going to use Exploring Creation with Zoology 1:Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day. Although interesting and just reading it myself here-and-there I have learned but I wanted a more Charlotte Mason feel for science. A few days ago I ordered, Discovering Nature Series: A Nature Walk with Aunt B. By Queen Homeschool.
This series looks more doable and fun.

Lastly for Josh, I decided to use Sequential Spelling via cd-rom.
I purchased the bundle which includes the cd/dvd, teacher manual and student workbook. I was able to purchase it from Timberdoodle two days ago when they were having free shipping with orders $35.00 or more. The Sequential Spelling bundle happened to be $35.00, so I was happy about that.

I purchased all my last minute changes with what I sold and payed with my paypal account. Yay!!!

That's all folks!
