Finally settled on curriculum for Joshua

Well after weeks of struggling, hit or miss school we have all decided and committed to a curriculum for Joshua.  We have chosen to use all BJU Distance Learning. We have used alot of BJU in the past including their distant learning classes through the satellite before they shut the satellite down.  Their distant learning classes are top notch and it will allow Joshua to complete his school work without waiting on me to teach him.  We spent the last several days (couple of weeks really) talking about all the pro's and con's of schooling this way or that way.  I tried to let Joshua tell me what he preferred and take that into consideration since he's getting older and we want to encourage him to take more responsibility for his education.  He choose BJU DL also.  After much prayer and talking it over with my husband we placed our order and we can't wait for our boxes to arrive.

It's very hard for me to let go of the doing Heart of Dakota at this point but I know this is what the Lord wants us to do regarding Joshua's schooling right now.  We will reevaluate after he completes this school year at the end of July but I see us continuing with this for quite a while.  I had planned to do BJU DL at the first of this school year and things were crazy around here so I decided to use what I had on hand.  I should have just done the BJU DL from the beginning but hind sight is always 20/20.  I know the Lord has not forgotten Joshua and will redeem my mistakes to bring Himself glory.

So this week we will be planning our new schedules and getting ready for several boxes of books and dvd's to arrive and learning about Thanksgiving.  I'll figure out how to post our schedule when I get it done.

In Christ alone,

Edited to say that I will still pick up the Diana Waring audio cd's to listen to.  We really like those and I want to listen to those in our free time.

I'm using BJU Science 6 DL for one of my sons, and I really like it. The good thing is, he really likes it too :) The teacher is top-notch, I don't have to teach it, science is getting done, and he is retaining and relating it to life. I've seriously considered doing all of BJU DL next year, but I don't know yet. Hope you find your school is blessed with the DL.
