It’s a busy week for us … last night was our cast meeting for the summer production and tonight is the set crew meeting for those working on set design and construction. Tomorrow night is the technical rehearsal for Jami’s dance recital, Thursday is the dress rehearsal and Friday night is the big show. Then Saturday is the homeschool conference in Houston, where I hope to find exactly what I need to make our little academy work this coming year. We tried Sonlight this year, but it was just too cumbersome for us … with our crazy schedule, we need individual subjects that we can grab and take with us if we need to hit the road for business or family reasons.
One curriculum that I am sticking with is Saxon math. Even though it’s fairly “dry” (i.e., not a bunch of fancy illustrations and games), she actually prefers it over some of the more “colorful” curricula out there. When I suggested we use something different, she said “NO!” rather emphatically. And imagine my delight when I discovered Saxon now offers computer CD’s that will work on my Mac … since math is NOT my forte, it’s a relief to know I have a resource that will help explain the lessons more clearly than I might do.
Well, I have much to do today, so I’ll be seeing you around —
