School Looming on the Horizon

School is going to start for us on September 1, as it always does. In case other homeschooling moms need ideas I thought I'd post our planned curriculum:

Son #1 is continuing college, studying criminal justice. He'll be doing his internship with the state police this fall. I need to do NOTHING about his school! Hooray!

Principles of Grammar series (grade 12) by Christian Liberty Press
Advanced Mathematics and DIVE cd's (Saxon & DIVE)
Second half of How Great Thou Art book 2

God & Government Book 3 by Gary DeMar

I'm probably forgetting something, but the bulk of everything is there. Two of the children can't wait to begin and two don't want to ever begin. It's always that way.
