Wishing and Hoping...

As we "finish" our first year of homeschooling I am already thinking about what we will do/change for next year. This year was great, relaxed, fun, etc. But, I do want to be on more of a schedule next year...and with the help of a friend sending her preschooler over to school with us, I am sure that will help keep my on my toes.
We will be going with a new curriculum next year called "Sonlight." It has all my weekly lesson plans already made for me and I can supplement with our own handwriting and Math, which is great!
Today I have been making lists of books, etc. we will need to get to go along with our curriculum, esp with adding another student in the mix. I needed to come up with a list for her as she will be doing the same stuff as Noah so we will need some duplicates. Then I decided to just make a wish list of "stuff we would love to have" for our classroom next year. The #1 thing on the list is a new table....the desk thing didn't work too great for us this year, as we like to do stuff all together and ended up sitting on the floor a lot, which is okay sometimes, but not so great when the floor is cold!
On the right of the page is a link to my "Amazon wishlist" of things we would love to have, in case anyone happens to be in a giving and blessing others mood! ha ha!
