2015-2016 School Year!

We are about to start our 9th year of homeschooling.  This is our third year of Abeka Academy.  It has been a huge blessing to our family.  We watch the teachers on the computer and then do the assignments.  Every quarter I have to send the tests and a couple of writing assignments into the Abeka offices.  They grade everything and issue a report card.  This report card is what I send into our school district. 

Today was unpacking day!  It is a lot like Christmas when this day arrives.  The newness of the upcoming school year brings such excitement.  All except for my 10th grader.  He is not a fan of school.  Some days are better than others.  He is a great student, but it is just the pulling teeth to get the assignments done that leave me pulling my hair out. Last year he finished the year with 3 A's and 2 B's.

Everything is included in these boxes.  Courses this year are Algebra 2, World History, Biology, English, Spanish and Bible.

In addition to these courses he will be taking physical education.  This is by far his favorite course.

In October he will start his course for Certified First Responder.  The CFR course is something he is really looking forward to.  Once he passes this course he will be able to take the EMT-B course at the age of 18. 

One of my favorite features of the academy is everything is planned out for me.  No more planning on my part.  It was fine when the kids were younger.  But now that I have a 10th grader the courses are a bit more complex.  The only thing I have to do in way of planning is to write down the daily assignments.

So here is to a great school year!!

That brings back memories when I homeschooled. Looks like you are very organized too.
