Happy to say have gotten back into the writing groove. Feeling much better and have been making progress the last three days. Writing a couple pages a day and the story is moving forward. That in itself makes me happy. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. My goals also include planning for home school which is actually going quite well.
I'm making headway with 6th grade lesson plans. Took me a few days but finally found the perfect curriculum for science. I was looking for something completely secular without any christian bias to it, meets state standards and in textbook/workbook format. Which surprisingly was hard to find. All the publishers seemed to be changing to online textbooks. Plus hubby handles the science lessons so it had to be something easily planned and implemented. And most importantly, hold James interest. Holt, Houghton Mifflin, and McDougal Littell publishers developed a homeschool package - Holt Science and Technology Earth Science package for 6-8 grades. Big weight off my shoulders. A bit pricey but well worth it since I now don't have to spend hours trying to develop a plan of my own.
So have figured out the curriculum and know just need to outline everything so can set up our schedule. My plan was to get it done by the end of the month and by jove think will be able to do that. This morning I outlined spelling, math, cursive and part of his writing program. I gave up, a few couple years ago, trying to actually pre schedule everything out on the calendar because you miss a couple days and the whole plan goes kaput. Easier to just go to the next thing on the list.
And in case you missed it, but I don't know how you would, our fearless ROW80 leader newest book "Red" is available. I downloaded it already and can't wait to read it. Check out the excerpt. If it doesn't catch you and hold on tight making you want to find out what happens next, well then I'll eat my hat.
Check in on everyone else and see how they are doing.
