Sonlight Arrives!

Wow, I couldn't believe how many different curriculums that are available for homeschooling.  I've read countless books and did even more research online.  We finally settled on the Sonlight Curriculum, a Christian and literature based curriculum.  Ella loves to read and has always learned best through reading, this was the perfect fit for us.  Not to mention, the reviews were great!  This curriculum covers mainly language arts, history, and religion. Therefore,I will be supplementing with seperate Handwriting, Math & Science curriculums as well. 

Ella was so excited when we received our Sonlight Curriculum in the mail.  She saw all the books and just went crazy, flipping through them all (like a kid in a candy store).  Even Eric wanted to get in on all the learning fun!

I am so excited to see Ella thrilled with the idea of homeschooling.  She gets even more excited when she sees all the books and materials arriving daily. 

I've been up late preparing lessons for the first few months of the new year.  I'm slowly transitioning from the traditional method of schooling to our homeschool curriculum. We're so excited to start our school year in the winter!
