Day 2 Back to School

Today was our second day back to school, in our first school room and our new schedule.  See Sunday’s post, Our Curriculum,  for pictures of our school room and basic schedule.  Tuesday is our coop/extracurricular activity day.  This year we are doing horses.  So after a morning of Character Sketches, Bible, Scripture memory and Math we were off to see the horses.  Although all the children have been exposed to the horses and are comfortable around them, today was our first official riding lesson.  They learned basic grooming, saddling the horse, proper mounting and dismounting, basic riding (all done at a walk) and leading the horse back to the barn, unsaddling and proper care for the tack.  They did a great job and are so excited to do this on a regular basis.

Before I began this post I finished updated our school record keeping.  This is another area I have changed or updated this year.  I am using an amazing online software Homeschool Skedtrack .  I am so impressed with this program.  They have very easy to follow video tutorials that explain every step of the setup and daily operation process.  The best part is that the software is FREE.  After many dollars and countless planners, systems and software, I believe I have finally found one that works for us.  Check it out for yourself, Homeschool Skedtrack.


Graham Family Ministries presents the Intentional Planner

Read what Sheri Graham has to say about this amazing new planner that she offers to us for an unbelievable price.  I have the 2009.2010 version and loved it.  But I am blown away with the improvements and additions that Sheri has added to this new planner.   This planner is a must have for the homeschool mom.

Yeah!!!….The 2010-2011 Edition of The Intentional Planner is now ready for sale in our Book Shop!  This planner is for July 2010 through December 2011 (18 months).  After many hours of editing and putting final touches on this ebook, I am so excited for you to see it!  The planner will now be a fully editable PDF file that will allow you to type your information into the file and then save it for future printing or editing!
This edition has been a labor of love (I won’t even talk about how I was almost completely done with the PDF file and the program crashed….totally messing up the file so that I had to start all over!).   In spite of the difficulties, with the Lord’s help I have it all done for you now.  I am also keeping the planner at the low price of $5.00.  Click here to go to our Book Shop where you can read all about the new edition and view some sample pages.  Test out the sample pages by typing into them so you can see what I mean…you really are going to love it!  I know I can’t wait to start using mine!
I pray that this planner will bless many of you as you strive to be “intentional” and better organized in your home and school.
In Christ,
