The 2011/2012 schoolyear at a glance

At some point, I must plan for the next school year!  I'm a little thrown off this year because I am purchasing my curriculum so late......Everything is a little behind.  But the amazing thing is that I am finding comfort, rather than anxiety, in my lack of control

All I'm going to say about the house is this.......it hasn't been started yet.

Back to school...

I am schooling both children this year and I am absolutely thrilled.  I have thought and planned and read and I think I've figured out the curriculum and the books- but I havent put it all to paper yet.  I was wondering, what do you do?  Edu-TrackHomeschool Tracker?  A journal?  I'm thinking of the Old Schoolhouse's Primary Planner to help me get a bit more organized.  So here's what I'm thinking of covering and I'll let you tell me what you think and help me fill in the holes:

Abby 4th grade
Tapestry of Grace
Teaching Textbooks
Exploring Creation through Human Anatomy
Simply Grammar
? Spelling
Copywork
Nature study

Ben 1st grade
Copywork
Nature study
Exploring Creation through Human Anatomy
Phonics Museum
? Math
Tapestry of Grace

So what do you think? Any suggestions for Math or Spelling?  We'll be attending a co-op one day a week that will cover geography/maritime geography, our science, and art.  (The kids will still take art once a week with Belinda Youngblood because she is AWESOME and we love her!)  I love planning for a new year- seems there is nothing quite so exciting and full of possibilities.  So share with me!  What are you planning for the upcoming year?  I can't wait to hear!
