Dude, where ya been?

Pardon my temporary hiatus while I continue to work on next school year's curriculum. I've actually decided against purchasing a big box curriculum and have now decided to do more of a "unit based" school year.

By breaking the year down into 2 week increments, it is a whole lot less frightening. Especially considering that it will be my husband that will be home with the kids during the day while I'm at work. We plan on using a tag-team type of approach.

I have so, so much to blog about -
*I'm actually brave enough to write my own homeschool curriculum.

*I think I'll apply for Spring 2010 entrance for a Masters in Nursing Leadership.

*I got a new treadmill for Mother's Day - and I've been using it.

*Although, I did gain 5 pounds and am back at 150 - I'll readjust my side thingy later. I had zero willpower when I got all sorts of foodie gifts for Nurses Week.

*My husband and I have been cooking together and I have a bunch of yummy recipes to share.

*I volunteered to co-lead the 3 year old Beginners group at our church for the next school year. It's a really challenging room, and it needs a ton of help. The parents are really disconnected in there.

So there you have it.

Am I the only person that volunteers for way too many projects at once?

I am really looking forward to your school updates, I'm sure it will be fun and fascinating to follow!

Hurray! Let me know if you need any fun science activities, I taught science day camps for younger elementary schoolers. :)
