I feel much better. It sounds very possible to balance the 3. I think we can make it work. I had forgotten about the high school being more self led. :)

Thank you all again! :)

Creation photos

Another fun idea is to give them a disposable camera & let them take photos of the different days of creation. :) Maybe photos of the sky for the heavens & the ground for the earth, etc. Develop their photos & let them make a little scrapbook with stickers, etc. :)
