I've been quite busy these past few weeks. I'm still trying to get ready as much as possible for the new year. I had no idea it would take me this long to organize our plans and our learning centers!! So I have compiled a list of what I'm working on.

1. Religion Lesson Plans
2. Nature Journals
3. Create Memorization List
