Despite hours and hours of research on my part over the past four years, now that Aiden will be in first grade, I’m feeling a little panicked. No good reason–just seems more “official” or something. Although I find it fascinating that WA law does not require children to be in school until the age of EIGHT. I don’t find the age illogical; what surprises me is that EVERYONE puts their kids in school way before 8. There’s something to ponder.
Anyway, despite my look-at-all-curriculum-options-AGAIN freak-out, things really are mostly ready. With Aiden in 1st, Norah in K, and Ronan in P3, all I really need to get is The Story of the World for history–we’ll do Ancient History this year. There’s a lot of stuff I want, of course, but we’ll see. When I have everything finalized, I’ll type it all out…which I’m sure everyone will be waiting on the edge of their seat for.
