Re: Augustus Caesar's World...really enjoying RTR

I am enjoying RTR also and we, too, are on week 4. I must confess though that I'm not doing all the projects. Just now getting around to doing the clay writing tablet from week 1 :) I have enjoyed Augustus' World. My 9 year old daughter is tolerating it, though that's the way she is with most school...

Re: Has Anyone Started Mid-Year?

Share my funny moment!

Re: Anyone do ECC with a new baby?

I started ECC in January while working outside the home part-time. I chose MFW in large part due to the open and go format of the curriculum (plus of course the Bible base).

Re: earthworm habitat

Thanks. For what it's worth, Walmart often sells earthworms in their fishing dept, just not sure if they are available in the winter. I got mine from a local bait shop. I poked holes in the lid from the get go, and after reading the suggested links, I'm thrilled to say ours have lasted a full week. ...
