we did our review this afternoon and are good for another year:-) We use an umbrella to oversee us so the state really has nothing to do with what we do and I like it that way. We march to our own drum and sometimes it can seem like we aren;t doing anything, but when you hang with us and talk with us and see what we are doing we are doing so much, it often surprises people- myself included.-.I am often surprised at how much we did every year when I write up our resources, books read , field trips etc and put togehter our reports and projects.
We do peer reviews in our group which means one of the other families reviews us, and one of our dear friends - who I grew up with- meets me at the park and we do each others review. And the kids play and we visit and lunch a while and recharge ourselves, sharing stories of the adventures we have been on and trading ideas and how tos, it is a most enjoyable day and I look forward to it each year.
Now to start planning next year I want to begin Latin and am looking to get Latina Christina, or Prima Latin- which is for younger kids-. I think we re also going to dabble in Greek I found a study of the book of John and it is using the Greek translation so I thought it would be interesting to explore a bit and learn the gospels a bit better too. Same with sing-language we have been learning that using verses and hymns.I love the planning process of school and love pouring over material it is so exciting to me.
