Latin-Song School Latin along with Jacob
Song school Latin

High School-11th grade-Zach

mfw High
Bible-MFW Ancient History and Literature-this program is recommended 9th-12th.  This was a good fit because he had already done 2 years of U.S. History and will do World History and Government next year.

History-MFW Ancient History and Lit.
Language Arts-MFW Ancient History and Lit.

Science-DIVE Physics and Chemistry This is recommended for 9th grade, Dive is much more advanced than the public school and so to make sure he is ready for Chemistry next year, I wanted to really work on it this year.  This is one of the reasons I love homeschooling.  When a child is lacking in one area or another, we don’t just glaze over it and hope he catches it later.  We stop and spend a little more time refining their skills, before moving on.  P.S. He did DIVE Biology last year and loved it.

Math-DIVE Algebra 2
Writing-Cursive First, which is ironic.  We are actually doing this last in his school writing experience but sometimes it makes sense to go back and make things right.

Foreign Language- He has one year of German.  We are still trying to figure out what he is doing to finish up his second year.  He may even do another language the next two years.

I hope you all have a great school year this year, whether you homeschool or have kids that go to a school.  God Bless you all!
