Homeschool curriculums for the fall!

We've been homeschooling for 8 years now I guess -- if you consider that we are homeschooling our kids from when they are first born! Over the years I've tried various curriculum - some I've stuck with, some I've shelved. This coming year I'll have one in 3rd grade, one in 1st grade, and a preschooler. I'd like to say I've got this all figured out, but I'm far from it!  Since I know a lot of people will be homeschooling in the fall and are in a conundrum about what curriculums to use, I thought I'd do a roundup of what we'll be using this coming year. The beauty of homeschooling of course, is if I decide something isn't for us, we can just change it. But I hope this is what we will stick with for the year!

Itch to Stitch Balboa Skirt Release

And skirts are way easier to sew than jeans!  Itch to Stitch has just released the new Balboa Skirt and it comes with so many options, you may never need another knit skirt pattern again!
