Gearing Up

I've got the outline for the affidavit. I've got the special ed teacher ready to sign off on the curriculum for the little one because she needs speech therapy. I've got the goals outlined. We're meeting a group of homeschoolers this coming Friday in our area.

I've decided against a co-op. I need more of a supportive network type thing for a homeschoolers group. The families that we're going to meet know awesome evaluators. Some are using Seton curriculum, some are more eclectic. It sounds like a good mix to me.

I've got the placement testing lined up for this week. We got the shelving up to hold all of the curriculum materials. The girls each have a laptop. We're thinking of all of the cool stuff that we can get involved with now.

Right now is crazy with swim team practices and meets, tennis lessons, basketball. The older daughter just went through training to teach swimming to little kids - she will be great. Plus, it's a nice little summer job - she gets a free pool pass, a t-shirt, a little money and a lot of good experience!

I'd say that we're almost ready to go.

hard to believe we only have like what 7 weeks before we start schooling these beautiful girls again??? Amazing.. We usually start the day after labor day and then give them breaks to get them through the year without having to buy anymore new books.. This year went well..

I know, Tweetey! We are totally consumed with summer activities at this point. Swim team is taking up a LOT of time and energy, but that will be over in 2 1/2 weeks - so we'll have August to chill out.
