Still tweeking next year's plan

Three things I'm working on.

One.   I plan to have my 5 school age kids take Latin next year especially since I already paid for First Form Latin Independent Study with Memoria Press.  My oldest 4 have already completed a year or more of the beginning Latin courses through Memoria Press and they sufficiently groan when I casually mention that we'll be doing it next year.  The great thing about this course is that we can do it at our own pace.  That seems to be working out well in some other subjects this year.  I'm working on realistically fitting it into our schedule

Two.  I'm on a hunt for a middle school German course for Caroline who will be in 7th grade next year.  She had one semester of German online with Landry Academy this year- an awesome course!  But, she really doesn't want to do a live online course where she is in a classroom with other students.  I'm considering having her take the Oklahoma State University high school German 1.  She can take as long as she wants/needs to complete it, so I would plan to have her take 2 years to complete it.   That's how The Potter's School does it. 

Three.  And...what I'm putting last, but probably should be first, is that I need to complete an enrollment to a community college for Luke to take dual credit courses.  I've already completed one, so I think that is the main reason I haven't done the necessary 2nd one, but our local homeschool group (FEAST) is going to offer dual credit courses and I need to sign up with their affiliate community college.  I'm procrastinating.    After that, I have to sign him up for a dual credit placement test, but I've been putting that off too for some reason unknown to even me!  Hmm.  What if I put that in my schedule... make an appointment with myself do it?  So glad I just had that epiphany.
