Yes, we are still here.

No, we have not fallen off the face of the earth, or spontaneously combusted, nor has the rapture occurred. I am just trying to get my school planning done because the kids are dying to start school by the first week in September. Which is in less than two weeks.

So, I am trying to get everything finished and planned because you all know, because I've said it a million times, that I like to get my planning done over the summer. No more planning gets done by me during the school year. So, if we are doing it, I have to plan it now.

Yes, I did say the kids are "dying to" start school, not "dying at the thought of" starting school. I try to make it interesting to me fun for them and they also enjoy the structure our day has when we are doing school. I do have to occasionally remind them of this when they are complaining about their math lesson. Or the occasional spelling lesson.

Ryan & Camden are itching to get back to school. Still trying to gather a few things for the school year. But, hoping to have a really fun year this year. A lot of that is in thanks to you! I truly appreciate all the resources you share with us!

Oh, us too, us too! Summers get boring real fast!! Good luck with all the planning! Judging from all the great links you've posted over the summer, you have some great plans in the making!

I can't imagine preparing so many lessons! How do you balance all of your time? I have several friends at work who home-school as well. They have this rather large group of 15 families or so where they rotate classes (or houses I guess) each day of the week.

Love the photo in your header. That's a great shot. THanks for stopping by my blog!
