Pre-K/Kinder Curriculum

Peanut is has a fall birthday, so we are thinking we may stretch out kindergarten to 2 years so she graduates when she is 18 instead of 17.

Where has the school year gone???

Wow! It's March now and time is flying by! Life has been waaay busy, so I haven't been online much...missing out on blogging, homeschool forums, and online friends. We sold our house, moved, and now preparing for another deployment. Hopefully (like I'm always saying!) I can update at least monthly. hahahaha! We'll see! I'm glad I'm back and look forward to sharing our homeschool adventure!
