Our 2015/2016 School Year

 I’m still trying to figure out my 8th and 9 grade students course work. I have a general idea (sort of, it keeps changing) but haven’t purchased anything (thankfully since I keep changing my mind).
Right now we are really still finishing up our 2015 school year. Remember I switched our year from the traditional September to June – January - November. Total flop! I think I’ll just call us year-around-homeschoolers.

I have our 2015/2016 line up but no pictures or our new books. I haven’t ordered much. In fact I don’t have any of our books right now.

  1. Looks like you have a great year planned! Our plans changed last minute. Sounds like you did the same. Hope you find the right fit for your kids and family :)

  2. Yup! My plans changed at the last minute! Thank you, I'm praying that my choices will work for us.

  3. It's a trend to have last minute curriculum changes -- I'm there with you as I decided to drop HOD just 3 days before we were supposed to start school. Oddly enough, I am anxiously awaiting my package from CBD with the same exact Elementary History You Report!!! I purchased it a little over a week ago and it should be arriving any day now :) Do you already have your set? I had to make the purchase rather blindly with only a few samples to help make my decision. I hope we like it!

    Blessings on your year ahead. We are starting our second week and all is going rather smoothly so far.

  4. How funny that we both will be using Elementary History. It just looks so fun and non threatening :) I've been drooling over it for a month and finally decided to just go for it. I ordered it a few days ago, so no it's not here yet. It hasn't shipped yet.

    I miss you!!! Wow, two weeks, good for you all. I don't have an official start date yet.

  5. These look good. I admit that I had to look up Shoelace books. I had never heard of them. :-)

  6. We are also using HOD for my daughter's 10th grade year. We use their suggestion for science with Ace biology. She loves the dvd!

  7. Hi, Kathy, Annette & Josh are currently using Ace Biology with the dvds and is really enjoying it too. She used the Biology course with her brother so they could do the dissections together. So she's kinda off with the science part of HOD. (her brother is finishing up WH Guide).

    Caleb my 3rd child will be using it in Jan.
