Homeschool Curriculum for 2013-2014

Hard to believe another year for home schooling is coming to a close!  Technically, we hit our mandated 180 days tomorrow, but we will be continuing on for the year until the end of June or until Aly is born - whichever comes first.  We will be taking off a few weeks after Aly is born, and then starting back up with the new school year on August 5th.  My 4 yo actually starts school this year in PreK4, so I will be planning for four kiddos, and adding the youngest boy into BFIAR with his sister.  So here are the curriculum choices for the upcoming year:

K will be in 5th grade:
Devotions: Train Up a Child Bible Curriculum, starting with "Choosing Obedience"
Geography: Up until the end of December we will be studying Asia and Africa, then starting the states
English: Shurley English Level 5 and starting 6, if needed
Bible: Studying the Gospels using Veritas Press curriculum
Spelling: All About Spelling Level 6 and starting 7 if needed
Handwriting: Handwriting Without Tears
Math: Math U See Delta
Science: Apologia Zoology 3
Reading: Prairie Primer (starting with On the Banks of Plum Creek) and American Girl (starting with Kirsten)
Other: Keepers at Home
