Countdown to D-Day

Here it is, one week from the start of our school year. Everyone seems to want to know why I would start so early. There are a myriad of reasons, but mainly 1) it is too hot to do anything else and 2) we take a lot of time off during the year when dh is on vacations. So we are starting. I have most everything ready to go. I ordered the rest of our books yesterday and am anticipating their arrival. I am hoping that at least the math books will be here by then :) We definately need them.

Tomorrow, I am cleaning the house, really, really good. I need to do the final organization in the school room and clean off my little workspace back there. And we will need to leave mid-afternoon for a little shopping before Taekwondo.

Here is my sample school schedule. I am sure that it will change a little after about 2 weeks :)
