Here are some shots of Emma’s school curriculum.  She just started Kindergarten last week, not because we expected her to, but because when we opened the box and she saw all this cool stuff she wanted to begin right away!  Some fun things we’ll be doing later this year include starting an Ant farm and housing an indoor butterly garden to watch them grow from caterpillars into butterflies!  Looks like lots of fun to me!  For those of you who are interested, we’re using the K program from My Father’s World check it out!

Kailie’s 2nd grade

Our curriculum for 2nd grade is here!!  Kailie would like to start “AS SOON AS I FINISH 1st!”  i.e. she wants to school through the summer too…we’ll see if that actually happens!  LOL!  We will be using My Father’s World – Adventures  which is US History for 2nd and 3rd Graders.  The program includes: Bible, history, geograpy, science, literature, art and music.  We’re adding in our own ideas for math and language arts….it looks to be a great year ahead!

For Language Arts we have just started Language Lessons for the Very Young from Queens homeschool supply.  It has been great so far.  It includes art picture study (with full color images), poem memorization, copywork from great poetry selections, narration practice as well as typical English grammar instruction all in Charlotte Mason style.  Highly recommended!

Newspaper People

Today a lady who works for the town paper came and interviewed Dave and I since we are “new in town”.  I guess they’re going to publish it in the paper…?  She also brought us lots of brochures, maps, coupons to area vendors, etc.  This place is crazy!  When we first moved in the butcher and the store manager of a local grocery store stopped by and brought us a bunch of food to stock our freezer and “Welcome you to Humboldt!”!  Then the cable company called and gave us *FREE* cable for a year….!  I love it here!
