School planning and a sick mama

Oh, yuck. Sore throat, headachey, tired - that's me. It's been three days now...maybe time to see the doctor? I just hate going in and being told that it is just a virus and I'll have to wait it out. Gee, thanks - not worth my co-pay! :) I've wondered if it could be strep, but two of my kids have had it and bounced back without medication, so I think it probably is a virus. My sweet hubby has worked from home the past couple of days to help take care of the kids so I can rest. He's such a good hubby!

So, when the tylenol has kicked in sufficiently I'm trying make some headway on school plans. Next week is a "Creative Arts Camp" at a local church - all three kids will participate, so I'll be able to get some work done then, too.

School starts for our homeschool on Monday, August 13th!! I'm using the book Latin Centered Learning by Andrew Campbell to shape our education plan. It needs a bit of tweaking to use with our family (more than one child and an older child just starting classical education). Perhaps, you'll be interested to see how I've used Mr. Campbell's ideas. I'll post some of our schedules and resource information.

How is your homeschool planning going? Got links to your own plans or resources? Leave a comment with links!

I've been out of town so there is very little (read - no) planning going on. I have been encouraged by joining "Back to Homeschool" week, so I hope that when I get home I can hit hte ground running.

I see that this entry is about a week old - I sure hope your sore throat is better by now.

Hi! I finally found your blog. I hope you are feeling much better by now. I would love to see your schedule. I haven't bought the Latin-Centered Curriculum book yet, but I may do it soon. I'm wanting to have a more Latin-centered homeschool, too. Hopefully I will start next week. My girls are not exactly thrilled about Latin, but I'm praying that their hearts will change.
