Today I am sitting down finalize the curriculum we are using so I can start creating a schedule. There are a copy things I am thinking of adding in yet. Once I finalize the curriculum I can start a schedule for the kids. From being able to review different homeschool curriculum I have found new things that are working with my kids. Also some of our curriculum got put on the back burner and I am going to bring that out and finish it up.
One of our favorite things to do is listen to audio dramas. The first audio drama that we ever listened to from Heirloom Audio Productions was Under Drake’s Flag. We have been hooked on each one after that ever since. We recently have had the chance to review With Lee In Virginia, which is the newest release. These audio dramas keep you wanting more as they are action packed and full of faith!
I have only been painting about a year now. I have noticed that up until recently I wasn’t happy with the paint brushes that I buy. They always seem to shed hair. I am not crazy about hair on the canvas as it’s hard to pick out. I recently had the chance to purchase the Santa Fe Art Supply Artist Brush Set for a heavily discounted price for my review. I must say that this is the best money I have ever spent on a set of paint brushes.

History is one of our favorite subjects in this house. When looking at curriculum for history, I try to find ones that seem intriguing and involve hands on activities. Home School in the Woods has some really awesome projects for history. We are currently working on Project Passport World History Study: Ancient Egypt. You can spread this across 8 – 12 weeks. This particular project is for grades 3 – 8.
