"Not" Back to School Blog Hop:Curriculum

Even though the curriculum part of the Heart of the Matter Blog Hop was technically 2 weeks ago I decided to go ahead and post our curriculum choices for the year. As I started sorting through the piles of books I couldn't believe how much we are going to do this year. I am so excited to really dig in and get started. We really school year round but we have only been doing math, reading and handwriting over the summer. Our first day of school is going to be Sept. 6th and I finally have everything sorted and ready to go. I think.
