I'm just in awe. It's enormous. This is "Momster Binder" sitting on my cluttered (I'm still working on that) desk next to my poor, pitiful little Home Management Binder, which I assure you, is no lightweight itself!The inside.....just getting to Page 1 seems intimidating, except for the fact that my entire year is already planned out for me day-by-day, and I just LOVE that! No more planning too much and not getting nearly what I'd like to do accomplished!
Oh yeah....the other "meat" of the Core K program--the BOOKS!!! Wonderful, glorious BOOKS!!! All grade-stickered (hence the pink spine-labels) and covered in Contact Paper for their protection (and my peace of mind--these babies have got to last through three more babies)!
Speaking of the aforementioned Home Management Binder, I've tweeked a bit from last year. Wait, strike that. TWO years ago. I figured the title page needed a bit of updating since the pictures I had on it were, well, OLD. Besides, we've added another face. I like to do my section title pages in scrapbook style--it gives me a little boost to actually USE the binder since I do like it so much once it's done to my standards! Notice I left a tag to put our [still unnamed] unborn little one's picture on once she arrives? Hey, leave no stone unturned! The scripture at the bottom is the same as it was on the page I replaced, Proverbs 31:27.I also added a section for my own studies (notes from sermons I want to look further into, study handouts from Bible Class, other stuff here and there) and a journal! Streamlining! Woooohooo!
This may seem like a boring picture to you, but for some reason, it inspired both Pete and Kelsey to laugh at me and how.....over-organized I am trying to be. Huh? I don't get it. What's the big deal about colored index cards and wet erase markers to write on my page protectors so I don't have to print out page after page after page? Sheesh, give a gal a break, willya?Now that I've got Morgan and Jamie planned for, it's on to planning for Kelsey. Easy, for the most part, since she wants her entire senior year to be on computer. Switched-On-Schoolhouse it is! Lesseee.....Chemistry (again--Apologia seemed to just be too in depth for her), English 12, American History (again--Pete was NOT thrilled that she seemed to retain nothing about US History from a few years ago, so this is by his insistence that she take it over), Family Sciences (ooooh, a fancy title for "home ec"), Art, Civics, and still an elective or two to figure out. It is all about to come crashing down around her just how close she really is to graduation, considering we're attending our homeschool group's graduation ceremony for this year's grads TONIGHT. Wow. Next year (good Lord willing and the creek don't rise....whatever that means), it will be Kelsey in a cap and gown! Heehee.....we'll have to do a kindergarten graduation too!
