My First Blog Hop!

What is a blog hop?

A blog hop is a linky list that is SHARED ON MULTIPLE BLOGS.
When several blogs put the same linky list code on their blog, the
exact same list appears on each blog.

Blog visitors can submit their entries on any blog that contains the list.
The entries will appear on each blog where the list resides.

Blog readers see the same list on each blog, and can "HOP" from blog
to blog seeing the same list of links to follow: BLOG HOP!

School is starting soon...stay tuned!

I can't believe how fast this summer has gone by! In the past couple of months, I have been swamped with writing my book on being a missional mom, such that school preparation has been on the back burner. We are starting one week from today, though, so I better get cracking!

Here is what I have decided on so far:

For Harry (3rd grade):
  • Exploring Countries and Cultures, My Father's World
  • Continue with Singapore Math
  • Latina Christiana
  • Spelling Power
  • New American Cursive III
  • First Language Lessons
  • Writing With Ease
  • Mandarin and Spanish if we can fit some in!
For Ron (Kindergarten):
  • Continue with Ordinary Parents Guide to Teaching Reading
  • My Father's World-Kindergarten (primarily the character-teaching/Bible lessons, which includes science/nature studies)
  • New American Cursive (he really really really wants to begin this program!)
  • Song School Latin
  • Singapore Earlybird B
  • Joining in on world geography with Harry when appropriate
For Dobby (preschool):
  • Grasshopper Kits
  • Trying to keep him out of the other boys' way when they're working!
So that's our short summary for now. I can't believe how fast it's coming. I know I could just delay a week and start later...but I really don't want to wait any longer! So next Monday it is. Will post more then! In the meantime we will continue to enjoy the last vestiges of summer!
