2008-09

This year marks the beginning of high school for our oldest child.  He is looking forward to taking driver’s education.  It promises to be a busy and exciting year.  The kids will continue with music – instruments played currently include piano, violin, viola, flute, guitar, and drums.  We will consider participating in swimming and PE at the YMCA again this year.

There will be more individualized work and less work as a group this year.  The academic plan includes:
