I'm super excited about this coming year and the journey we are getting ready to undertake. Lest anyone be concerned about the dreaded "socialization", rest assured that I'm not going to be keeping these kids in a bubble. They will be playing sports this fall, and I'm looking for a homeschool group to meet up with. I just know that I can be my children's best teacher - heck, who knows them better than Chris and I do? :-)

Good plan! One of our friends who homeschools also pulls a "how stuff works" topic they create by watching recorded episodes of Discover channel's How it's made and pulling topics from their website How Stuff Works. Its been successful since their kids are so very curious.
