We are just completing RtR with an older edition (2004). I talked to the MFW office last summer and decided that I would buy the new student sheets (for convenience) and stick with my old manual. It worked out just fine. I did buy an "upgrade" for a previous year (ECC?), but it really is more person...

HSing with babies is definitely possible! My kids are 13, 11, 9, 8, 6, 4, 18 mos. so we have pretty much always had a baby and/or a toddler while schooling. I just found that sometimes I had to think outside the box as far as scheduling. Instead of trying to get everything done in the morning, somet...

My daughter has read some of them on her own. The Trailblazer books are based on true happenings, but are not completely factual. The author does make note of some differences at the beginning of the books. They seem to be a bit more exciting as they are written in a story format rather than as a bi...

Posted: Wed Jan 03, 2007 11:59 pm For some reason I was overwhelmed when trying to start SP. We were very hit and miss for the first few months and then I decided I needed to buckle down and just get moving. After a week or two I couldn't figure out why I thought it was so hard. I like it now. It i...

Posted: Wed Dec 12, 2007 5:12 pm We are doing MFWK, 1 and RTR this year with four kids (and two toddlers). We do the phonics, math, Bible, and some science from the first grade program. I love the Bible reader especially and the Proverbs verses have been great especially for this particular daughte...

We have both Bibles. I consulted with my 9-year-old and we more closely compared the two Bibles. The only advantage we see to the Discoverer's Bible is the larger print. That said, my 7-year-old (who is the owner of the Adventure Bible) has not had any trouble with the smaller font. We do like the N...

My girls (1st/3rd grades) loved Pioneers and Patriots. We often read ahead. It was fun because it was full of stories, not just information, about kids that lived during those times and what life would've been like for them. I enjoyed it too. My older daughter also enjoyed Exploring American History...

We had fun comparing shadows at different times of the day. We traced my daughter's feet in one spot on the driveway using sidewalk chalk. At different times throughout the day we traced her shadow, each time with her standing in that same spot. It was really cool to see where the shadow was each ti...
