Early 2014-15 school planning

It’s that time of year again. Time to begin planning for next school year. So I’ve been poking around homeschool curriculum site and browsing catalogs. I want to start Richard with more textbooks since he will need to learn to use them if he goes on to college. He will begin using Apologia textbooks for science. He’s good at science so hopefully this won’t be too easy for him, but I want to catch any gaps he may have. We will continue with Christian Light Education for most core subjects math, reading, language arts, bible, and Karen’s social studies. Richard will do a fun review/reinforcement of skills he has learned for writing.  Karen will be beginning Institute for Excellence in Writing with level A.

This is what I’ve come up with so far (CLE=Christian Light Education, WP=Winter Promise). It adds up to about $800 so far.
