Busy getting our schedule ready

I am busy getting our schedule together for homeschooling my now grade 1 daughter. How exciting is that. Below I posted the curriculum I am going to be using and I have starting using it and so far we are loving it all.

At the same time I am doing my homeschool schedule I am doing my daycare schedule as well. I want to get things all ready so we can just keep going with theme after theme for the daycare kids.

Happy learning going to post it all once I get it done here.
