This Year’s Curriculum

Standard

I thought I would share what we are using for curriculum this year. We are very much what I would call an “eclectic” homeschooling family. We use a lot of Charlotte Mason methods. Our main curriculum is My Father’s World (Rome to Reformation this year), but we add a lot of our own things as well. So, here we go!

My son (Buddy) will be moving into the regular My Father’s World curriculum this year with his sister (Boo) and I am SOOOOO happy about this!  It cuts prep and class time down so much when you can combine your kids in classes.  Our family classes this year are:

Rome to Reformation Bible

Family Bible and Character

Our 24 Family Ways

Character Building for Families 1

  1. This sounds like so much fun! I would love to be able to do things like this with our girls. However, I am stuck currently needing more structure. Hoping that will change in the future! Hope you have a wonderful year!

    I love the look of your blog 🙂

    • Thank you! I hope that we will have a lot of fun this year. We have our ups and downs. Each year I get a little better at completing what it was I planned for the year. 🙂 I hope you have a great year!
