~Make sure there's plenty of supplies for each corresponding subject (ie; rulers, notebooks, pencils, blocks...)
~With the curriculum that I am not all that familiar with, begin getting aquainted with the materials. Fortunately I have my old stand-bys of which I wouldn't dare change. It is mainly some high school subjects that I need to
~Have plans for the next month set on paper.
~ Make a reasonable schedule for this year. I have an ideal schedule typed and printed but, you know, it's a recipe for failure. I need a REAL schedule and one that will enable us to still get it all done.

~Mentally and Spiritually prepare the children for the journey ahead.
~Send in beginning of year paperwork for our accountability association.
August 6th will be our first day, Lord willing. Things will be a little willy-nilly to start. James is off on vacation that week and the week of the 20th. Also, we are headed on a small church event the Friday of our first week. Oh, and we have two birthdays the week of the 20th. So we will begin the first three weeks with just mornings sessions and four days a week. Then we'll go full swing. I did honestly think of not beginning school until the 27th but that would put us behind the days public school would already have in. I don't like that. Anyway, so it is what it is!
School year 2012-2013, HERE WE COME!
