Even though the school books have been staring at me for a while, I finally looked over our Abeka math and language arts closely for the fall. (We use Classical Conversations for everything else.) I have 4th grader this year and I have always felt there is a change in curriculum at this level. They are growing up and the text books show it.
I made a list of supplies we needed. I ordered some books for reading I have intended to order and had not got to yet. I made a list of the first week of school assignments (which I’m pushing back a week due a VBS my daughter really wants to attend. Late nights and the first week of school are not a good mix).
Then, if I can be honest with you, I sat and tried to figure out how I’m going to get it all done. Math is going to be tougher this year and language arts about twice the work. I’m still planning to continue my job as well as do the books for my husband’s business. Then there is the cooking and keeping up with the house.
So, after jokingly telling my husband I needed to hire a housekeeper, I’m working on formulating a plan. I’m looking at switching around some of our school schedule as well as my household chores and cooking schedule. Once I get this somewhat figured out, I’ll share it with you.
Are you considering making any changes to your routine for fall? I’d love to hear about your plans!
