Monday began our 2011-2012 school year. This is a year of firsts for us. LE's first year of school, my first time teaching 2 at the same time, first time using My Father's World curriculum (http://www.mfwbooks.com/) and Apologia Science (http://www.apologia.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=1). Well, we really haven't started Apologia. My Father's World (MFW) is a combination of History/Geography, Science, and Bible. The plan use MFW and Apologia. MFW is quite a bit more involved than I expected so for now I am going put Apologia on hold.
Our first day was a little shaky. At the end of the day I was thinking, "How am I going to teach two kids who need one on one attention?" Day two went much better. I am trying not to stress about how long things are taking. I am hopeful as we move further into the year and become more familiar with the new curriculum our time will be used more efficiently. I will keep you "posted."
