Okay, I know summer isn't really over until September 21st, but the summer break is pretty much over. We're wrapping up our summer school efforts, and planning on enjoying our final long weekend of the summer. Our school year will officially start on Tuesday!

Homeschool news  . . . We're planning and preparing, and looking forward to starting some new stuff on Tuesday! I'd initially thought we'd jump into everything full speed since our first week back is later in the year than usual. But after looking at the calendar and coming up against a couple of problems, we're going to ease in a bit like we have in years past. We'll put off starting the Notgrass American History course until the following week for sure. As for Biology, I'm still figuring that one out. I thought it would be a simple matter to get started, but that was before I realized that upgrading to Windows 10 meant that the CD/DVD drive on the computer would need to be replaced. Everything else will start next week. Or at least that's the plan as of Friday afternoon!

This week Kennady continued to wrap up with her Geography, so delaying the start of History will give her a little more time with that as well.

Other news . . . we had a very quiet week overall, trying to get back to a regular rhythm of life after vacation. There was plenty of laundry to do, and other chores that needed looking after. We got our car back from the body shop on Wednesday, so that was a relief. It's all shiny and new-looking again!

We were back to worship team practice on Wednesday evening as well, so another regular activity re-established. Landon worked most of the week, and had friends over Thursday night for a bonfire.

What's new . . . the experience of homeschooling just one student will be new. We've got new curriculum to dive into. We'll soon have a new season of choirs starting. The car feels new again. And I suppose we'll soon have a new DVD drive on the computer!

We too plan to ease into schooling starting this coming week. I had hoped to delay starting just a bit and finish up our math books we used as our summer work but seeing all that I wanted to accomplish in one school year has me nervous and anxious to start now.
