I'm still here plugging away!
I'm still here just haven't had a whole lot of time to post. 7th Grade is starting on August 22nd, two weeks earlier than we normally start and I don't even have the majority of the curriculum yet. *facepalm* Finally had meeting with our teacher counselor through visions who okayed choices, then headed out to homeschool store to select everything. Had to wait until meeting since they are providing the funding. I usually have everything already in hand by the beginning of August and plans done so feeling a bit stressed. Will be picking up in a couple days. There are a few things not available through the store and it would take too long to wait for the school to do their ordering so went ahead and ordered directly.
Printed off all the tables of contents of everything and have been working up lesson plans. About half done but really, really, really need the books to complete plans.

"Oh yes, thank you."
I read an absolutely awesome book last week. Full Disclosure by Dee Henderson. Yes, she finally wrote a new story which references the O'Malley series quite a bit and I was fortunate enough to receive an Advance Reader Copy. Will be writing up my review in the next week or so. Have to say that once I finished it, felt like had just finished a gourmet dinner with a fine Bordeaux wine and filet mignon and was so satisfied and full didn't want to read anything else
