Planning for the new school year!

I've spent days and days planning out our school year and now I'm exhausted.
Elijah will be in the 4th grade this year. I guess I should step it up and make some real homeschool plans.

I bought a brand new teacher lesson planning book. Gathered my materials and sat down pouring over everything. Planning is hard work, but very rewarding.

After days of fretting over everything this is what I've came up with:

Elijah will be using Facebook for spelling and writing.
Watch all 6 Star Wars movies for science and watch Mythbusters.
The Abeka demo CD for tracing circles to make art.
Cleaning house for home EC.
Watch Night of The Museum I and II for history.
Staying up all night Thanksgiving night, standing in lines to shop on Black Friday for survival skills.
Play video games for hand eye coordination.
Shop at Wal-Mart in the middle of the night for math.
Watch Anthony Bourdain for health and geography.
Play Wii for PE.
We will also be going to co-op once a week so we can cover that pesky thing called socialization.

Looking forward to a GREAT school year!
