The Seniors 09

Most of our school books arrived yesterday! We are starting earlier than planned because J is (hopefully) taking vacation and we need to be on track with scheduling. So, official start date is Aug 28th. This year we are studying:
Trig & Pre-Calc
Physics + Labs
Poetry
Rhetoric & Logic
Vocabulary
Speech
World View
+ there will be SAT Prep. stuff (practice tests, etc...)
and our reading list includes:
GK Chesterton's Father Brown Stories
Gilgamesh
CS Lewis' science fiction series - ThePerlandria Chronicles
Last of the Mohicans
& some others I can't think of right now :o)

SAT's are in Oct. - Pray for us!

I need to home school for the sake of my education! I think I would fail all of your classes! H

The book list looks great. I need to pick up the Father Brown stories. Have you considered reading the whole Leatherstocking Tales. "Last of the Mohicans" is very popular, but there's actually a whole series about Natty/Hawkeye. You probably knew that, though. Anyway, the list looks great, and it gives me ideas for our boys as they grow.

LOL @ Heth... I would too if it wasn't for the teachers' guides and having step by step instructions!
