Next years plans... the rough off the top of my head version!

A: The Orthodox Church- reading with me and separately, discussing certain points together, researching one area from each chapter on own, making parallels to the wider history of each chapter through discussion and further reading.
The Incarnate God- read around the great Feasts together.
Lives of Saints

Math: Geometry- Jacobs
Latin: still slugging through Henle- have a new syllabus. Who knows, we might even sort of, part way, possibly, follow it!

We need to work on grammar. We will go over some in the Mother Tongue as well as the great bookmarked site I found tonight on one of the tutorials..
Ten Great Essays: Intro, Read 3 Essays.
On Writing Well: Cover the first 1/3 to 1/2 or more (great book)
Format Writing: Dry as dust but will get the job done in the essay department (and heh, I have it here!)
Narrations- on lit. , history, religion, and natural history.

Simirrillian (outloud to both olders)
Till We Have Faces (outloud to both olders)- this is when I wish I had liked English in school. I am so lost at discussing books!
Beowulf- Heany translation
Sir Gawain and the Green Knight- Tolkien translation
Canterbury Tales- excerpts
Le M'Ort D'Arthur (I am sure this spelled horribly)
My Antonia- Willa Cather
Wendell Berry: Stories from The Wild Birds (short stories- aim for 2-3)
Dostoyevsky's Short Stories (again, aim for 2-3)
These are the 'prescribed books'- A will also have some classics he has chosen on the go- that is why the list is a little on the short side. These will be most probably Dickens! We may do Pride and Prejudice this year, and his Papa is going to read and discuss Watership Down with them!)
Oh, and Tale of Two Cities- because A looooooooves Dickens.
My dad, pleeeease, will be available for some book talks here!
Edited to add: Rob Roy
Song of Roland

The Orthodox Church
Bede's Ecclesiastical History of Britain (select parts)
The Birth of Britain- Churchill

Chemistry: The Joy of Chemistry
Jean Henri Fabre's Chemistry Book
The Chemical History of a Candle
TOPS Solutions
Medelev's Dream
An old dusty Chem. text on my shelf!
Botany: Our Golden Guide and sketching in sketch books etc.
A Natural History Book
Biology: Finish off the last two units in September...(or 1 in Sept. and 1 in Oct.)
Asronomy: hmmmmm.....
The Whole Confusing Evolution thing: Darwin on Trial, and The Orthodox Word article I have (this may happen next year....)

Music: taken care of!

Phys Ed: got to go running I think, off to the Y sometimes too!

Fine Arts: Drawing With Children with Pops, Bach in the Fall, The Story of Painting beginning again, this fall's artist is up in the air!

Have to work this out soon! One week left...
