  • Still to purchase: Singapore Math Intensive Practice 4A and 4B, Singapore Math Challenging Word Problems 4, and Latin for Children A Mastery bundle.

I'm not as ready as I'd like to be, but I have a little bit of time left. It's nice to see how much I have accomplished despite only working on things sporadically. My plan is to start up on Monday, August 4th with Bible, math, and memory work. That gives me a week and a half to finish pulling things together for most subjects. I'll have two and a half weeks for history and science planning, since I'll not be adding those until the third week. Geography may just have to wait until January because I don't have time to make lesson plans or time in the schedule to implement any plans.
