Aaahh…A Schedule

Aaahh…A Schedule

School is just about up and running again and schedules are getting back on track.  I sure love the freedom that summer brings, but I’m always ready to get back on schedule.  School schedules, chore schedules, weekly engagement schedules.  Somehow, life is just calmer when it’s scheduled (around here anyway.) Here’s a rough sketch of…

2008-09 Overall Plans

School will be starting up again soon!  We’ll probably wait until the rest of the garden has been harvested and canned/frozen, but the serious planning is well underway already.  Following is our overall plan for the year.

Subjects we do together: Bible/Devotions…

Caleb’s Days
