2012-2013 Curriculum Choices

Day 2 of the Back to Homeschool Blog Hop
Topic:  Curriculum


Like most homeschool Mommas, curriculum makes me giddy.  There is something about starting a brand new study or a new book with crisp clean pages that makes me happy on the inside.  This obsession great interest is one of the reasons I'm thrilled to be a member of the Schoolhouse Review Crew.  This past year with TOS has introduced my family to some wonderful products.  You will see that our experiences greatly influenced our curriculum choices for the 2012-2013 school year.  (All titles in red were decided upon after using a crew review product.)  I anticipate that the crew will give us many more items to add to this list as the year goes on :-)

    I found you through the Review Crew blog hop. You have such a lovely blog.

    We use Apologia also and will be studying Botany this year.

    We will also be using MOH1 for history this year. This will be our first time using it ans I'm really looking forward to it.

    If you are interested in connecting with other Apologia users, please check out the Apologia link up that I host on my blog:
