Look what arrived today:It's the new curriculum for our 2009-2010 school year! It's always soooo exciting to open that big ol' box for the first time and see what adventures we will be having. But I'm going to admit, as I looked over everything, I did feel some slight feelings of panic creeping over me. It feels like a big jump from last year. And now I'll have two girls schooling . . . So, I'm kind of nervous. I see some revamping in our daily schedule ahead--I'm not sure if we can get everything done when the boys nap (IF they're still napping come fall . . . PLEASE, PLEASE let them be napping come fall!). And Fridays, which were a very light/if anything day appear to be a thing of the past. There's still a lighter load scheduled for that day, but much more than we have been used to doing. So, changes ahead. Which is always hard on me, sometimes finding a rut and sticking to it is good. ;o) And changes almost always involve my *favorite* word--discipline. Of course I realize this is needed--without discipline there can be no growth. I'm just not sure I was looking to get stretched this fall. ;o) But, it's all good. I'm really excited for what the girls are going to learn about the world, geography vocabulary, animal habitats, and all that jazz. Now we just wait for the back-to-school sales to start and we'll be good to go.
