The beginning of the school year fast approaches! I’m plugging away at getting ready before it gets here. Here’s a peek at what I’m working on now:

Apologia Anatomy
Anatomy Notebooking Journal
Junior Notebooking Journal
Assorted Highlighters
Pretty Pencils
Post It Tabs
Well Planned Day











Yes, I’m knee deep in planning our science for the year. The notebooking journals come with a 36 week lesson plan in the front which really helps, but the girls have different notebooking journals this year (The Junior Notebooking Journal is nice!) so they have some different activities. I’ll be including the 5 year old on some things, too, so right now I’m making a master lesson plan in my Well Planned Day planner — what pages we’re going to read, who is going to do which activities suggested in the book, and what the 5 year old is going to do. It’s not hard… it’s just time consuming! And it takes a little bit of concentration. Translation: The kids are making a mess while I focus so intently on my planner. ; )

On the other hand, while I was lesson planning our grammar book I found the process to be tedious and overwhelming at times but now that I’m finished I feel a great relief and peace because it’s all laid out in black and white. Hopefully the science will be there soon. 4 weeks down, 32 to go! ; )

Hey, y’all! I’m Amber and I wear many hats. I drink a ton of coffee and I’m constantly sweeping crumbs off the floor. After 18 years of homeschooling, I’m getting close to graduating my third child and now we are starting over at preschool with our fourth, Lil Miss Mouse. She keeps us young and she’s the main reason for my excessive coffee consumption. Drink up!
