The Simple Woman's Daybook . . .


Outside my window. . .Thunder and rain.

I am hearing...crying.

I am thinking. . .it's going to be a lot of responsibility teaching Lela.

I am thankful for. . .Finding my MVP Calvert email this morning!

I am remembering. . .a lot of fabric I need to get cut out and made into somethings.

I am hoping. . .to see Lela tomorrow!!

I am creating. . .jam, lots and lots of jam.

On my mind. . .homeschooling Lela.

Noticing that. . .I need to get caught up on laundry.

From the kitchen. . .it's a mystery to me too.

One of my favorite things. . .my babies.

A few plans for the rest of the week. . .Seeing Lela, going to the zoo, going to the park, and maybe going to Carriage Crossing, maybe Exploration Place too...

What I am reading. . .MVP website.

Picture for thought I am sharing. . .

You will do so well teaching! You are a gifted teacher already and kindergarten is a breeze. If you do Calvert it is extremely open-and-go.....even has what to say in the teacher's manual! You can do this!

awe thanks Lori, I'm just so nervous about it. But, yes we are doing Calvert, through our local public school system. It's kind of hard to explain it's a new thing Calvert is doing, pretty much the money the state would pay for my child to go to public school, they pay for her to have Calvert. I'm so glad, cause otherwise we couldn't of afforded Calvert!

Are you homeschooling (I know you are super busy!), but just asking cause there's a FB group I can invite you to if you are. (sisters only).

i understand.....our state uses K12 to do their online only charters...very expensive on your own to do, like Calvert. The nice thing as that the Calvert enrichment stuff is a lot cheaper then their curriculum. I've seen some really cute study guides for Robert McCloskey books and stuff. Unfortunately our state does not use Calvert, mostly K12 like I said and Connections. I wouldn't mind using state if they did Calvert. Yes we are homeschooling...starting our second year with David in first grade starting Sunday. I would love to join the FB group!

Sorry my MIL was in town and I haven't even been to our apartment since she got in town! I will add you right away!

oops about the rest. Ok well MVPS is new here, this is only it's second year here. Keep checking with Calvert, about your state. It is only costing us 75 a year and that comes with every thing, even the states version of ATS. We get the 12 months, and every thing. K12 here cost 90 something dollars and you have to be done with in the school years time, and all that. I don't know a lot about how Calvert is working with our state yet (when I asked last year they didn't know either they said this was a experiment, I haven't asked much since then, so now I guess we will see as we go!) But, when I was at the district office to enroll Lela seemed there was several other mom's in there switching from k12, to this! They don't call it Calvert in the commercials, they call it MVPS in the commercials here. But, when I called that's when they told me it was calvert and all that. And K12, will act like they know nothing about the program at all, like it doesn't even exist. I thought it must of lost funding this year cause I wasn't hearing anything and not hearing, then I called k12 and they were like they didn't know anything about it, then I was about to fax every thing over to finish enrolling her in K12 and I got the email from MVPS and was like YES! And right away stopped the K12 enrollment and started the MVPS, now she is completely enrolled, and we just have to wait for the PC and cirr to arrive!

No worries! Yeah I keep checking on calvert's site...so far AZ is all dominated by K12. Bleh. I have somr weird issues with them. I guess because they are a for-profit company....so to me, from what i've seen they run it more like a business than caring about the quality of the education. Just from my research on a varity of sites.

yeah exactly, I was so glad we weren't pinned down to them!
