I LOVE THIS TIME OF YEAR!

Okay, I am sick as a dog, but I have to say that this is one of my favorite times of year! Why? Because I buy next years school now. I just purchased for the upcoming year and I'm so excited. We are sticking with Saxon math. I really like it. I had purchased next years spelling before so we were already set with that.

I found a place that sells cheap textbooks and I LOVE TEXTBOOKS so I purchased an art and music one (yes, I know, I don't need a text for these but hey, they were $7 and $10, so I couldn't pass it up). I got an English textbook also. I don't know exactly how Five in a Row (FIAR) is going to go for us, (probably really well) but I think I'd supplement with an english text anyway in addition to math.

I also bought a science text that is pretty much the following grade to this one. And the place I buy from had a 3-5th grade VA History text! Could NOT pass on that one! Even if we don't use it this year coming up, we'll need it soon.

I don't know if I'm going to buy the next year of Story of the World. I'm still undecided on that one. I'm going to finish out the rest of this year and see. I love the chronological approach. FIAR also covers history so I might just go with that. I'll have to see.

But I LOVE BUYING CURRICULUM! I have to admit that I'm very quick to buy something new...then find something else to catch my eye and buy it, etc etc. I need to stop that! But I am sticking with some that are working really well.

The problem with typing with two fingers and then not proofing the document ends up with corr3ect rather than correct.

Let me try again!
