4 More Days Till School Starts - Yikes!

We are starting school in 4 days and I am soooo not ready!
I started planning for this year awhile ago and had a plan in my mind, I bought a few of the books I needed along the way since I knew we would be pressed for cash. Now that we are facing the new school year I am staring at this stuff and questioning the direction I wanted to head... We were going to start back at the begining for Kelly's 9th grade history but when I spoke to her about this she was all upset she would rather stick with the more current history and move ahead (we covered up to World War II this year). In thinking back to my school days I can hardly remember ever covering the more current history each year we always ran out of the school year before we finished it. Soooo I am now thinking of starting off from where we left off and work from there - We will be off of the regurlar 9th grade schedule of history but I think it may be more of what Kelly will interested in at this point.
I still also struggle with getting this kid just up to speed on a number of basic subjects so I need to just step back and get her going on the basics and then head into other more demanding subjects....
Can you tell I'm not ready for this school year? Yikes!

You'll get there! I was exactly the same way before we started I managed to pull it together at the last minute. :-)

You will get it all organized, hon. It just takes time and planning. I am sure that you and Kelly will have a great year.
