ElCloud Homeschool Curriculum 2017-2018

We started school on August 21, enjoying the solar eclipse as part of our first day's lessons. My husband took my middle students (3rd grade, 6th grade, and 8th grade) to see it in totality, but my 11th grader, 1st grader and preschooler stayed with me. 

We have two full weeks of school under our belt, and I am just now getting around to sharing our curriculum for the year.

Our college freshman is living at home this year, but she's enrolled at the community college and working at our community library. Our tag-along for the school year is my 9 month old grandson, who comes to our home for daycare most weekdays. It's fun having him here, but I've had to remember how to juggle a baby and homeschooling again.

How is your homeschool year going so far?
