I ordered my daughter's curriculum for next year! I am sooooo excited, and I can hardly wait for those glorious packages to begin arriving. I am switching to The Well Trained Mind program, so buying curriculum took a lot of research, thinking, evaluating, and deal shopping. My brain is fried! Literally fried! (Hah! not literally! that is one of my pet peeves..saying something is literal when it is not. If my brain was literally fried I would not be typing, or thinking, or breathing, or anythinging. Okay. I will quit being peevish!)
So though my brain is fried, my heart is happy because I feel like, for the first time since I have started homeschooling, I am really pursuing learning for my child. The books I ordered will be challenging for her to learn. The lessons will be challenging for me to make. But we will not be pursuing spoon fed learning and teaching. We will be pursuing excellence. And while we may not obtain excellence, the pursuit of it is invigorating! It makes me want to laugh! HA! HA! HA!
