"That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:4-5

Our Curriculum 2010-2011

WOW.  I feel like I have put SO much time into planning for this year.  Part of that is because I have a high schooler, and I want to be super organized and make sure I'm doing that well.  I've put a lot of time and effort into putting his binder/planner together.  It's also partly because I had to start over with all my curriculum halfway through  the summer.  I am finally coming to the tail end of planning, though I am still waiting on 3 shipments of books...but no matter what we are starting school on this Monday.  Even if something doesn't show up, we have enough to get going.  I thought I would share what each child will be doing this year.

  • Switched on Schoolhouse Bible Doctrine

Well, there it is, and with God's grace and guidance we will work through all of these subjects this year.  I am so very thankful that HE is by my side every step of the way...guiding me, and loving me and all my children SO much.  Without Him none of this would be remotely possible!  Praise God for the grace that He gives to us mommies.  May God bless you all as you care for your children, love them, and teach them.


  1. Thanks for sharing April. It all looks great. I don't know how you get it all done though. I am amazed! You've inspired me. I might post our curriculum too.
