So It Begins
Now before I go on I should probably make a note that Pav and I had a home study done because we are taking steps toward adoption. I haven't blogged about our journey for many reasons, but I will say that we had a great home visit, it was painless.
Anyways, it was a busy week with that and starting school. We used this week to figure out a routine and schedule. We don't start Classical Conversation until after labor day, but I still wanted to get a head start on our other curriculum. I am using Saxon Phonics with both Ever Joy and Sawyer. Ever also has a time of reading and doing her copybook. We will start CC and then I want to gradually incorporate Math and Storytime Treasures by Memoria Press. Ever Joy needs most of my attention, but Sawyer and Zoe both want to be part of what we're doing. They use the time to draw, color, work on puzzles. It's a little bit of a juggle...
I made the patchwork map to use for Classical Conversations. We are learning about US geography this year. I made it out of scrapbook paper. A few states are a little stretched and poor Maryland got the bad end of the deal, but from far away you can tell it's the United States.
