The 2018 Books


When I was a kid, I loved to read. Inhaled books right and left. Then, when I was newly graduated, married, and started having babies, I didn't know what to read so I really didn't read much at all. A few years ago, I wanted to change that, so I made a rule that the only time I could eat chocolate was if I was reading.

So I started reading a lot.

Esmond's 2018-19 Plans


The stomach bug almost killed me this past weekend, but I survived and have finally finished Esmond's plans. Which means I'm done with school planning for the summer!

Gideon's 2018-2019 Plans


For Gideon, who will be doing his 5th grade year, I used some of Eowyn's books and then gave Gideon some of his own. His 4th grade year was a big year for him. At the beginning of the year, he wouldn't do any school work unless I was sitting next to him. But we worked through the year on making him more independent, and sure enough by the end, he was doing much of his work on his own.

I'm going to share Eowyn's because I finished those first.

Plans for 2018-19


One of the best things I've done for our homeschool is planning out every week's work last year. I couldn't really believe I'd gone that far last year and I wasn't really sure that we would actually be able to do it. But, we did. And it was so incredibly helpful to know exactly what needed to be done each and every week.
