Um, Hey There...Remember Me?

Well, hello!!

Wow, I can't believe it's been like...a week...since I posted anything.

Well, I just wanted to tell you both how much I appreciate you hanging around. And although I am now WAY behind on the Believing God study, I really do still want to post about it after I finish each lesson. So week 6 will be coming out really soon.

Forgive me for seemingly falling off the face of the earth. I really didn't. I have SO missed reading and commenting on so many blogs out there! But our homeschool started Monday, and it took a lot of last-minute planning to pull off teaching two kids. Oh, I sound like I'm kidding about that, but really I'm not.

And since I'm quite sure I have lost all the readers I may have once had, I will now go ahead and post the subjects that we are doing this year. That way, I'm sure to keep the number of boredom seizures to a minimum.

Mini me, 5th grade

Bible and Worldview - Building on the Rock

Arithmetic 5

Learning Language Arts Through Literature

Mystery of History (Renaissance and Reformation period)


Greek and Latin Roots

Library Trek (learning to do research)

Reading various classic literature with book reports

Sequential Spelling

How Great Thou Art (drawing)

Brown eyes, 2nd grade

Bible and Worldview - Building on the Rock

Letters and Sounds 2

Language 2

Arithmetic 2

Various A Beka 2nd grade readers

Mystery of History (Renaissance and Reformation period)


Wonders of the World (world cultures with geography)

Handwriting (cursive)

Spelling 2

How Great Thou Art (drawing)

Okay, that's it. I'm done. That wasn't so bad, was it? Maybe you'll come back some time and see if there's anything more riveting. That is, if you have recovered by then. Be sure and bring your seizure medicine next time.

By the way, I sure did miss you. And even Blogger too.

Hey, I hear you - it is hard to get back in the swing of school. The kids and I are still adjusting, I don't homeschool but I am a speech therapist at the local school district - so the kids and I go back together and it is an adjustment. Hope you have a great year .

Wow that sounds like a great ciriculum(sp?), and a lot of work for you. Home schooling must be a very difficult task to take on. I do applaud you.

Oh...there you are! I was getting worried about you. :) But you have a perfectly good reason for your bloggy break...and wow, that is quite a few subjects you are teaching there. Just hearing "Mystery of History" got me all excited...that was definitely one of my favorite subjects way back when.

Welcome back! :)

I've missed you, Chel! But after reading what you've bitten off for the year, I'm not surprised you've been MIA!

Being the 'veteran' homeschooler that I am, I'm thinking you should give yourself a break. If I had tried this massive an undertaking I would have burned out in 3 months. I'm much more the laid-back, relaxed homeschooler type.

And I'm sad...but glad to have dd at college this year -- cause I haven't learned everything I want to learn and now I don't have an excuse to go back and learn it! LOL!!!

Ya'll are so sweet.

I guess I should have mentioned that several of those subjects are either done at co-op and we just have to do some reading at home, or they are things we're doing at home, but only on a weekly basis (like the drawing).

So it's not really that heavy. It just looks like it when it's written out like that. :-)

Thanks for sticking it out and reading all that!

Ohhh I'm so glad you're back! I was wondering about you and almost sent you a message just yesterday saying something to effect of "where are you?! I miss you!"
And now look! No need b/c you're here!
(I just typed hear instead of here. I never do that. EVER. My mind is slippin' into something nasty.)
Also, you made me laugh. I do appreciate a laugh any time any place. :)

I was really starting to think that I was the only person out there using LLATL! Most people I've talked to about it had never heard of it.

I LOVE Beth Moore. Believing God is an amazing study! be honest, I only got so far into it and then I couldn't go anymore, but what I did do in it was AMAZING! lol
