Homeschool Curriculum for 2014/2015

This year is going to be a lot like last year in terms of the curriculum we are planning on using. I guess that’s a good thing! I’ve found stuff I like and that Tonchi (Hopefully Koa this year) do well with. So even though I see other new stuff that looks cool and grabs(…)
