Happy Monday :) preparing for school

Today we are sorting through all of the home school supplies and books that have been crammed into our home school cabinet. I didn't realize just how much we had and how much was UNUSED.sigh.

We are starting to make sense out of it all. Progress is slow as we go through each book/workbook to see if it was scribbled in and then try to find if we have both the workbook and book it goes it. 

We have so many different curricula that we have bought or was given to us that I am not sure which one(s) to keep and use. I like SOS and we will be getting Math and English from AOP but Science and History is so subjective. Last year we bought the entire SOS 5 subject package and we loved it! Money this year is tight as we would need to buy 2 sets of SOS for the girls so I am trying to make do with what we have until we can save up for what we want.  We want a Christian and Young Earth Worldview so we are picky. Every curriculum has its own spin that we don't always agree with and I hate having to tell the children "Well, the book says x,y,z but we believe a,b,c so ignore that part".

Right now 2 rooms in the house are a mess of books and work books, past years of school papers needing sorted, and school supplies. I don't like throwing away old drawings and school work but we can't keep everything :(  (not to mention I am a "tosser" not a "collector") Thinking of packing a box or two to Nanny and Mawmaw of 'keepsakes'. :) Then I am off the hook for "not being sentimental". LOL

Looking at our piles I am thinking a book sale may be in order!

So are you ready to start school this year?
What curriculum are you using?
