Wow, the school year is upon us! I've been frantically clearing out the old, and restocking with the new all week, and we are almost ready to go.

I'm still working on a plan for religion this year. Our goal is to make it to daily Mass at least once a week. I'm leaning toward using the Family Catechism from Apostolate for Family Consecration and learning more about many of the wonderful sainted priests of the Church in celebration of The Year for Priests.
That about sums it up. Sorry for the mish-mash of information. I had wanted to do a bit more reviewing and describing of the materials we use, but time is short. I created links to most everything here, so you might check it all out on your own time. May God Bless our new school year!
