I got my box with my Tapestry of Grace Year 1 in it last Friday. I am really excited. I love it! I am trying to go easy on it, but boy is it tough! I have only opened Unit 1 so far. I have looked through it trying to decide which books to buy. I already had made a list of which books we owned, and which ones the library had. It has been helpful for me to see exactly when and how the books are used.
Yesterday I rediscovered some resources on my hard drive that will fit nicely with our studies next year. First there is Great Ancient Egypt Projects, You Can Build Yourself which is available free at wowio.com. I also have Tools of the Ancient Greeks and Tools of the Ancient Romans. I’m thinking of not purchasing any of the activity books since I have these and my co-op leader has Old Testament Days and Classical Kids. I also found this Ancient History Copybook which has some great selections in it. I may use it for dictation as well.
On another topic, tomorrow is the first day of the NCHE conference. More importantly, it’s also my 15th wedding anniversary! My husband and I have decided to forego the first evening of the conference in order to go out to dinner and a movie. He is taking Friday off though so we will go and buy some books on Friday afternoon. I really love shopping for homeschool books. I look forward to it every year.
After I finish this I’ve got to go make a batch of strawberry freezer jam. We bought 2 gallons on Saturday. We had eaten/frozen all of those when my father-in-law brought me 4 more gallons today! So, I really should not be sitting here typing.
