This topic makes me super excited. I don’t know about you, but while others are completely overwhelmed by all of the choices and methods, I get a rush of adrenaline…especially when I am finally able to purchase the curriculum and dive into it (which is probably the reason why this is my third time switching/exchanging what we are doing) 😉 This IS my first year homeschooling though, so I plead being an indecisive rookie at all of this rather than a homeschool curriculum adrenaline junkie 😉
Here are our choices for the 2015-2016 school year. At the end of the school year, I will write another post reviewing everything we did, what I liked and didn’t like, what I would do differently, as well as plans for the next school year.
