Wow! It is so hard to believe that summer is already almost over. Yesterday, I was in wal-mart and I noticed that they already had the back to school supplies out. I always get so excited at this time of year when I was a kid being able to go shopping for new school clothes, book bags, folders, pencils etc. The funny thing is even thou I am all grown up and I home school I still get excited lol ((blush))
I have not yet purchased anything for this next school year ( I am waiting for those wonderful Tax free days!!! ) but I have so far this past week began to do some reviewing of last year work to prepare for starting a brand new year in September. What I like to do is buy those cheap lil work books from walmart, To me there isn't enough content to learn, but their great at being a BIG end of year test ;) I also go thru and just click on previous lessons that my kids have already completed via their online program and just see if they remember. Just yesterday my daughter was reviewing Analogies and my son was learning about his ABC's again. I really think it is important to run a mini refresh course before going back to school. At least I think so, and even thou I do get some moans and groans it makes it easier for them to transition to a new grade level when they got the previous year down packed!
So that's been my week, next week not sure yet? In this family life changes day by day ~> But that's why I love it ;)
