Getting Things in Order

I'm trying to get the school year in order before we're off on our annual pilgrimage to MN and WI. Hubby teaches at a great bible camp on Lake Carlos for the first few days of our time away, then we head to my parent's lake home in Wisconsin. It's a very long journey by car, but with enough snacks, movies, and pit stops we've been able to make it work.

Bobo: Saxon 7/6, Critical Thinking volume one, First Form Latin, Spelling Workout F, various books focusing on the Middle Ages (Famous Men of the Middle Ages, Robin Hood, King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table...), writing exercises using Institute for Excellence in Writing's Medieval theme based lessons, Earth Science for the first semester and Chemistry for Kids during the second. She'll continue with piano lessons, choir, Tae Kwon Do, and AWANA.

Elbow: Saxon 5/4, Can-Do Print and Cursive from HWT, Latina Christiana I, Spelling Workout D, various books focusing on the Middle Ages - still to be determined - writing exercises from IEW (same as above), and Earth Science and Chemistry for Kids.  She'll continue with violin lessons, choir, Tae Kwon Do, and AWANA.

Toddzilla: finishing up Saxon 1 and moving onto 2, My Printing Book, Prima Latina, Spelling Workout A/B, whatever science our group decides to do with the younger children this year, and generalized Medieval History through family read-a-louds etc.  He'll also do flag football, Tae Kwon Do, choir, and AWANA.

Little Boys: "Controlled" Chaos.
