Three weeks ago I wrote about what we're doing for homeschooling this year. I'm happy to report that everything is going well.
However, the CyberEd classes through Homeschool Buyers Co-op, which we chose for the core of our science this year, are only just now available. We couldn't sit around doing no science for three weeks while we waited for the deal to complete; we went off and explored some other things.
One of my friends had recommended Our Bodies Ourselves as a reference book to have around the house. We've been using it to study women's health the last few weeks. I love that I have open relationships with my children - it's wonderful when we are able to read together and stop to discuss things at will. I can state that this book is very comprehensive.
In the name of full disclosure, the above book is liberal. I also have an Associate relationship with Amazon.com, which means that if you click on my link then purchase I will get a very tiny amount of $. So far I'm proud to disclose that I've earned a generous $1.80 in referral fees during 2008. Oh boy! This could get me excited! If only I were allowed to purchase my own stuff under the assoiciate agreement it might have been worthwhile already :-)
