First day of "school" starts tomorrow!!

Ok, day 1 of school starts tomorrow!! I'm excited but I'm also really scared. I've got a 5 month old DD who is very high maintance and my 5 year old home schooler knows just how to push my buttons when he's not getting the amount of attention he wants.

Also, we haven't been able to purchase our "real" curriculum (Abeka [sp?]) yet because of a severe lack of $$. So, I'm using a mish mash of Wal*Mart curriculum, library resources, and various other things. As a result I'm having to come up with my own lesson plans! AHHHH!

Any and all prayers would be much welcome and appreciated!!

its just my opinion, BUT I think a 5yr old doesnt need that much curriculum anyway. A few hours a day of work, not necessarily all at once, is great, let him play and explore, make it feel like fun to him instead of "work". If he wants to read a few books for a while......let him go. Thats the advantage of homeschooling, you work around your schedule, and you can let your kids follow their own bodys......if your 5yr old needs a nap or a snack, they can!

Prayers coming!!

I agree with pp#2. I think what you have will be great!

I know quite a few mamas who do that all the way through!! Ack! lol Hats off to them!! At 5 yrs old it wont be too bad, but I think a lot of work at higher grade levels!

You can do alot of hands on at that age too!

Our first day is tomorrow too!! Have fun!
