Final Curriculum Change for the 2009-2010 School Year 2nd Semester


Alright - after much debate, reviewing, more debate, more reviewing, lost sleep, headaches, exhaustion, frustration, more reading and reviewing, and falling over a shoe the Purple Heart Academy is proud to announce our official curriculum for the Spring Semester of 2010.

Explode The Code
Beyond The Code

Math U See  - Alpha

Story of the World 1
History Pockets - Ancient - as a supplement

 R.E.A.L. Science - Life
Magic School Bus - Journey Into The Human Body as a supplement

With setting up the timing, the History and Science curriculums will take us through Spring Semester 2010 and Fall 2010 as well as Spring 2011!

Once we're finished with EOC/BOC we will move into 1st Step Creative Writing courses - likely sometime in the next school year with the way he's flying through stuff.

I would like to say a special thanks to everyone who has put up with my rambling for the past few weeks.  Each and every last one of you deserves a gold medal.

Unfortunately you'll have to settle for a smile....and my gratitude. :)

As we prepare to embark on this upcoming journey into the new year and the 2nd half of our first year of homeschooling, I just wanted to share one of my FAVORITE passages with you:

Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8

1 There is a time for everything,
       and a season for every activity under heaven:
 2 a time to be born and a time to die,
       a time to plant and a time to uproot,
 3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
       a time to tear down and a time to build,
 4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
       a time to mourn and a time to dance,
 5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
       a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
 6 a time to search and a time to give up,
       a time to keep and a time to throw away,
 7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
       a time to be silent and a time to speak,
 8 a time to love and a time to hate,
       a time for war and a time for peace.

This season has, in many ways, been a time for most of these things.  Thank you, each and every last one of you, for sharing this journey with me.


  1. excitement..breath, now to get it all in your hot little hands and plan it all out woo hoo..the fun never stops!
    btw~SoW is fun...we are going to mummify a's in the book!

  2. mummify a chicken?!??!!? What have I gotten myself into!?!??!?!?!?!?

    Seriously though - I'm doing it all in the digital versions so it's easier for me to keep track of. :)

    We'll have REAL Science by the end of the weekend and SotW by the beginning of next month.

    "I'm so excited!!! And I just can't hide it!!!"
