I'm finally done!
February 20 at 3:41 PM

I'm finally done looking at and aquiring curricula for next year.

Okay maybe I'm not done looking at, but I've settled on what we are going to use and ordered it.

Most everything came from Rainbow Resource, but I did order directly from a few places since it was cheaper with codes and digital downloads.  I even am using some free literature guides.  Over all I saved over $700.  I'm so happy to be done.

    How exciting! I'm still trying to finalize my decision for writing.

    Writing was hard for me as well, since my daughter hates writing.  I have her do copy work and dictation, but use the computer for everything else.  It's gotten easier since we changed a little, but still haven't found a good program.  We are going to use Jump In this fall and see if that works.  If not I'm going to either try Write Shop or IEW.

    Step away from the computer....and catalogues....and do not ever speak the word curricula until next year.....otherwise you'll NEVER be done....it's too addicting! Lol congrats!

    I am still trying to decide on a few different things.  I do have grammar, writing and math picked out, but everything else is up in the air! 

    Congrats, but I agree with Shannon, put down the catalogues or you won't stop buying!

    Me,too! Only for a little while for now. My budget needs some time to recover. I just got two computer science books I ordered. Microworlds Logo and python for kids. Now I just need to decide which one to use. Decisions, Decisions!
