life with boys is a lot of things...
but what I notice most is

Thought I would post the curriculum we're using this year. I love reading what others are using for their kids and hate that I hardly ever see what others are using for their older kids. So, I will.
I have a highschooler and a 4th/5th grader this year.
One Year Adventure Novel
We're using a tutor from Los Angeles, named John Rosasco
to study Conceptual Geometry, Trig and other higher math concepts.
I decided to use Apologia's Chemistry text this year. I have really struggled with finding quality science curricula that is not purely Christian in its focus. This science text seems to be working for now. It was a bit of a struggle just reading the text and answering questions. BORING! But now, I bought the DVD/supplement lecture material from Red Wagon Tutorials, and that is making it more interesting.
Viper is auditing a U.S. History class at the local community college this semester. He is doing great, carrying an A average so far. Whew!
He is also taking the following:
Spanish 2 - Rosetta Stone
Web Design this semester and next semester 3D Design
U.S. Geography using these notebook pages -
His literature correlates to his American history and/or character building. I will try to place a list here sometime soon.
Vocabulary from Classical Roots, Level D
Daily Grams, Grade 11
He is also taking a college level piano course with a private tutor and continuing with his karate training. He will be testing for his black belt in December (we hope).
I have to run but will post Charger's curricula later today.
