If you are still needing to purchase your history curriculum, I HIGHLY recommend Story of the World by Susan Wise Bauer and right now on ChristianBook.com it is 35% off! This sale will go through September 8, 2015.
We actually keep the story books on hand to read, they are great read-alouds, but we also have a copy of each audio version to listen to in the car.
Here are a few more resources to get started in your homeschool planning.
FREE Report Card Printables (these went over REALLY well with my kiddos!)
