It’s here! One of my favorite Weekly Wrap-Ups of the year – the Special Edition Curriculum Link-Up. I’ve gotta confess, when I announced this a couple of weeks ago, I so was not feeling it. I got so burnt out the last few months into last school year. Even this summer, I’ve wanted to do nothing more than just veg out.

It’s probably been the most boring summer on record, as far as the kids are concerned, but it really was exactly what I needed. I was able to get a break, get some rest, and gain some perspective.

I hope to make the boring summer up to the kids through a really great school year next year, which I hope will include lots more field trips, nature study, projects, and just plain fun.

It wasn’t until I started researching American history earlier this week that I really started to get excited. By Thursday morning, I had settled on our American history choice (thanks for all the great suggestions) and now I’m feeling really good about the upcoming school year.

I went ahead and put our curriculum choices on a separate page to make it easier for folks to access throughout the school year. Now, without further ado, I give you our

  1. Sounds like a full year, you will be using some fabulous things.  Great idea to study the states one day a week, I will have to think about doing that, my boys would like it.  We too like All About Spelling and I.E.W.  I agree it's so easy to push things like nature study aside, I guess we only have so many hours in a day to get it all done!

  2. I just can't seem to get excited about this fall. I really need to get organized and figure out a schedule!

    I am looking forward to re-rowing all our FIAR favourites with my preschool sidekick, though.

  3. We are already on week 2 here but I did add a link to our curriculum/planning for the year. Have a great weekend 🙂

  4. I am planning in more nature studies too. We tend to be outdoors a lot anyway, but I want to do something more formal. Glad you got your history figured out!
