I also noticed a teacher's guide by Lost Classics Book Company, 2008, available at amazon and rainbow. Hmmm . . . looks interesting.
Question: Do you think that the teacher's guide was meant more for a classroom setting vs. a homeschooling setting?
Let me add here . . . I am loving all the MFW LA and math suggestions. They are practical, topnotch, cost effective, etc. As I have been getting my bearings with homeschooling, I have added other programs to supplement, but not next year. We are using MFW suggestions exclusively. They are enough and work well together.

He says it is hard to keep the ILL book open and copy from it and he isn't big into writing (we do some orally to help with that, though). I have used Queens Language Lessons in the past, but dislike the copywork (which seems to be only poetry...not the best thing to copy for learning good sentence structure and the punctuation can be unusual ) and I have found some errors. I heard that ILL is in workbook form and was wondering if any of you have used this (the one from Living Books) or have seen it online and what you think of doing ILL in a workbook type format and if any of it has been changed from the hardback book. I thought this might appeal to my son, though I know a lot of ILL will still need to be done with me (he wants more independence). Any thoughts or suggestions would be great!

One exception I noted was that addresses for envelopes and letter writing are mostly (but not all) updated to our present post-office-approved state abbreviations.Has this been updated? Anything else? (This review was for the same version that MFW sells)
I would likely get the H/C MFW version. Do you any of you use the TM that goes along with the MFW version?
