2011-2012 Curriculum

YEA! It’s getting time for back to school planning- which my obsessive compulsive-ness as far as planning EVERYTHING goes, I’m so excited to have my curriculum lists finished! (Almost!) There are still a few things up in the air… really it’s just the mathematics program that I’m still debating on… going back and forth between MEPS, Saxon, and Singapore. We’ve done Singapore before and Harmony enjoyed it… kind of…. I’m still debating!!
