I'm tired! Declan nurses constantly and Fiona is sweet and loving with him, but is definitely a little needy nowadays. But the show must go on and the big kids have been restless and Chandler is so eager to start Kindergarten!
|Claire is finishing up 2nd grade and will be moving to 3rd by the end of the year.|
|Chandler is now a Kindergartener!|

"A Simple Plan" from Mardel. This is what I have at the end of our first day:
And on that note, our curriculum for this year:
The Ordinary Parent's Guide to Teaching Reading and Chandler is starting it. Chandler is doing Language Lessons for Little Ones and Claire will be doing Language Lessons for the Very Young. So far they both really like it.
Handwriting Without Tears for Chandler and New American Cursive for Claire.
We will be doing Science and History through our homeschool co-op. We do the reading at home and meet once a week for two hours with 29 other families to do the activities and experiments. I love that my children get to see their friends every week and it's a wonderful group of families!
Apologia Astronomy and Claire will be adding the Junior Astronomy Notebook as well.
Mystery of History Volume 1. So far it looks great!
Well, that's a rundown of our curriculum, plus in the moment learning of course! We also have monthly P.E. class, Claire is signed up for an art class and they both have a one time Horsekeeping class! I am also planning on a having a once a week sign language class at home with them. As long as I can keep Fiona and Declan entertained we should have a great year!
And a super cute picture to end us off with:
