And so it begins....
The homeschool burnout began mid February. Even though we pretty much had December off, it began. I got tired of having to do 3 separate times of school with the kids. I felt like I was just doing it because I had to. I wasn't enjoying it anymore. I wanted to spend time with all my children every day. I started praying and seeking God about what curriculum we would use next year. I asked my friend about a particular one she uses. I did some research on math curriculums. We did some changeups. I still need to do some research on Language Arts curriculum for my 6th and 4th grader but I have that under control and I'm actively searching. The Lord started working in my heart about the company that I went with for Sarah's Kindergarten and Noah's second grade year. I really enjoyed the material and the kids did as well. My friend whom I was asking questions really was very helpful. I joined the Facebook group of the curriculum I was looking into. I also joined a group that allows listing used My Father's World material. I found a set listed for a good price so I went ahead and bought that. I had perfect peace about it at that point. We will be doing My Father's World Exploring Countries and Cultures starting April 6th. We will combine History/Geograpy, Science, and Bible with all three kids. We will continue with the Language Arts and Math curriculum for the current grade level of the kids.
Today we received a few odds and ends in the mail. Here are the kids learning a bit of cartography today. They were really excited to get a globe and world map in the mail today. They also got glue, modeling clay, colored pencils, and a few other things that are for the ECC curriculum.
We can't wait to start!! We are all excited!
