Thank you MFW for keeping us on schedule!

I was just looking ahead at our school year and I can't believe how on track our schedule has been this year. I believe it's a direct result of the short lessons in MFW (and the fact that God has graciously kept all of us so healthy this year). I should NOT be this organized. I have a WILD 2 year ol...

Re: American History or World History first?

Thank you so much Crystal for sharing your personal story. I know it was God-led and you will be blessed for your obedience. What you don't know is I've been so torn about the Am.

Posted: Wed Feb 13, 2008 3:25 pm Something I've found that works for me is Homeschool Tracker's free software. I've entered all my "lesson plans" in there and it makes it something I can just look at and check off daily. It also helps me remember to incorporate AWANA verses for Bible time, which I ...

Confession time

Posted: Tue Dec 18, 2007 8:03 pm I started this year with my 5.5yo ds using MFWK. After about 8 weeks I thought it was (here's the confession) "too light" in math.

Kudos from my kid!

We just started yesterday and we use Wikipedia (free online encyclopedia) for the encyclopedia portion of the week. We were looking at all the different pictures of butterfli...
