How do you decide what to study in what year? And since we live in the same state, I was just curious how you are assured of meeting the state standards for testing? This is my first year "officially" homeschooling (meaning I had to send "a notice of intent to home educate" to our school district this year) and I am a little unsure of how to make sure we are on a good track timewise. Anyway, your's seems so orderly and well thought out...when do you have time to that?? Time management is my biggest foe and woe!
I would be so grateful if you could shed a little light or point me to the right past post of your's! :) Thank you!
