The exciting thing about boxed curriculum--and Sonlight is certainly not the only one who sends everything in a big 'ol exciting box--is the day that box (or boxes) comes in the mail. And Sonlight ships crazy fast too!
This year, both girls were getting a new core. And they knew what to expect. I'll just show you the pictures...
|My dad had to come down and help us get the box off the front step. It was HEAVY!|
|There were some unexpected things in the box (math manipulatives).|
|Sweetheart was happy to see a new CD. She really enjoyed the one last year.|
|Eight year old Little Bit with all her 3rd grade books.|
|My big 7th grader--who will turn 13 a few days after we start school.|
I'm happy to report that all the books have been shelved in the appropriate place and I've started pre-reading Sweetheart's readers. (Little Bit is using the 2nd grade readers and I've read most all of them before, plus she'll be reading to me.) The books, all stacked up like that, look daunting. I doubt I'll be able to keep up with pre-reading through high school.
I am so thankful to be able to use Sonlight again this year. It really does take so much work off of me in the planning and preparation department. It's not even funny how much easier it is for me! And I'm excited about all the changes that were made for this year. Can't wait to try out their Language Arts (which is now included) and see how we like it!
Have you gotten your new curriculum yet, homeschool mamas? Don't you just LOVE this time of year?
