Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I was busy with some personal stuff, and immediately following that was the week of Christmas! We've had a lovely holiday season this year. The kids sang in our annual Christmas play at church, and were so cute! We spent Christmas Eve at home, just our little family, reading the Christmas story and opening gifts. The kids had a lot of fun! Then Christmas morning we had breakfast at my parent's home with my brother and his family and opened gifts together. We still have one more celebration on Tuesday night with some close family friends of ours.

Believe it or not, even though last week was Christmas week, it wasn't much busier than any other week, and we managed to get in a full week of school, though we took the week prior off! I didn't take pictures, but it was a lot like it normally is, covering all our main subjects, with a few fun activities thrown in as well.

As we move into the new year, I know many homeschooling families are re-evaluating their curriculum and sometimes choosing different things or discontinuing others. For us, not much will change in the second half of the school year. While I know for sure some of the curriculum I got for this year I will not continue with next school year, for the most part everything is "good enough" that I will continue with it until we finish it and then look for something new. The ones I know for sure I'll keep even next year are Handwriting Without Tears, Explode the Code, and Right Start math. I'll have to do some research for the other subjects.

That's it for now, I just wanted to drop in and let you know I'm still here, I'm just enjoying my holiday, relaxing and blogging only when the urge strikes me!

Sounds like a very enjoyable holiday for you and your family. I am keeping our homeschool curriculum as is this year. That's a good feeling too.

I'm glad you had such a lovely holiday. Question for you...What did you think about All About Spelling?

Merry Christmas! It's great that you found a curriculum that works. I keep hearing good things about HWT - maybe I'll try it out when Anna is 4 :)
