Your plans look great! I need to get in gear to finalize mine. I have a good idea of what I am doing though. If you aren't sold on Abeka math, I recommend MCP. This will be our 5th year using it.

I am also planning to include religion on my homeschool curriculum for my kids. And I like the way you put up yours for your kids. I'd also like to try that book for your 4th grade for religion. BrightIdeasPress.com
