Of the 31 books pictured here, 21 are books Sam will read on his own, the rest are read alouds.
I mentioned that we were thinking about switching curricula this coming year. We settled on Sonlight. I had been looking at Sonlight for two years, but hesitated initially because of the cost. I managed to raise over half of the cost through selling stuff we didn't use any more at consignment and on eBay- this helped significantly. The books we received cover history, language arts, Bible, handwriting, art and music.
I had to ask Jamey to carry the box inside it was so heavy. It's good he was home at the time, otherwise we would have all ended up tearing into our box on the front steps of our house (by the way, the box can be turned into a castle- their are cutting lines and instructions on the inside of the box). It really was like Christmas. It was a bit hard for Sam to understand that he is not allowed to read these books- yet. I got excited because I love reading good books to my kids. We are in for a lot of hard work, but the adventures that we will embark on through these books will be worth it. And don't worry- like always, if we read a book we particularly love, I'm going to tell you about it.
Sorry this is a weird picture- I couldn't (for the life of me) figure out how to get it all in the picture. We're doing our own math, science and spelling- these books aren't pictured here.
To say we're excited to start school is a major understatement. Pin It
