It's that time of year again..... A New School Year! 
Is it me or did summer seem to disappear way to quickly! 
One minute it's May and then the hot days of August have set in. 
It's crazy. Our official start date is August 21st.

Well, we are heading into our 11th year of homeschooling if you count our preschool days. This year I have 2 kiddos in middle school! I suddenly feel old. It seems like yesterday I had two very cute little kids learning to read. Now I have two young adults spreading their wings. Time sure does fly by!
So here you go, here is our curriculum for the upcoming year!
