Making a Joyful Noise

School is starting for us soon... September 5th to be exact.

Sweetums will be a freshman.


Counting pre-school, we've been "official" homeschoolers for 11 years.


Finding the right path to teaching Sweetums hasn't been an easy one, but it's always been an adventurous one. CHUCKLE.

For ninth grade, I chose a tried and true literature course by Christian Light Publications, and a new to us curriculum for everything else.

Walch Education has a special needs program called Power Basics that might just be the ticket. I hope. I hope. I hope. ;o)

The line up looks like this:

American Government

I have a human body stashed in the closet for health.

Don't worry...

It's made of plastic.

You can choose the sex.

Sweetums says it's a female.

Her name is Aquanetta.

I'm also toying with the notion of a Music Appreciation class.

Sweetums is finally listening to music other than Johnny Cash.

She's now into the Everly Brothers. LOL


  1. My eldest started 8th grade today *gulp* I am going to homeschool my 6th grader this year, but we don't start until Monday. What an adventure!

  2. Wish you could be here and show me how to be so organised.

  3. Depending on which child/children we adopt, I may need some information on Walch for them, so I'll be seeking you out on how you like this, this year.

  4. I always wanted to homeschool, but I am not even remotely close to being organized enough. Good luck with american govt. I HATED that subject. Still do. ;)

  5. Sounds like a great plan! I have to do music appreciation this year. I've been negligent and not introduced Violet to much of anything. She says she doesn't like music. Mr. I finds this unacceptable.

    Good luck to you, Sweetums and Aquanetta!

  6. I dread the day my son starts school.


Comments also taste good with ketchup. GRIN.
