What needs to be done

I'm feeling a little overwhelmed right now. School starts in just over a month, and I have much preparation to do!
  • Finish American History curriculum (3/4 way done)
  • Make IEW notebook
  • Make reading genre requirements list and reading notebook
  • Finalize Apologia Biology schedule
  • Make art notebooks
  • Plan Brynne's first science unit
Yikes! I need about a week somewhere alone with my computer, the internet and my printer, with tons of notebooking supplies. Since I won't be getting that, I just need to get diligent in setting aside time to get these things done.

Anyone else feeling the pressure of a looming starting date?

UPDATE: As of August 11th, I have now completed the crossed-out items! I feel so much better! Almost done!


  1. Yup, I'm feeling the pain. I'm working on a history curriculum, scheduling out our math, English, and science. And I still need to figure out what we are using for logic! I've found that limiting my time on the computer actually helps me to focus more on what I have to get done!

  2. As each year passes, I seem to get more relaxed about the whole planning thing. (This is our 8th year homeschooling.) In fact, I still haven't finished ordering our curriculum for next year and I plan on starting in about 6 weeks. I have a "loose" schedule of "things" in my mind, but I don't usually plan in details because it always seems to change (and then I get frustrating with having to re-work everything). Hang in there! It'll all get done!


We all know that in this crazy world of homeschooling, we need all the (adult) support we can get. Please leave a comment if you so wish!
