Re: Did I choose the wrong year for our first year with MFW?

Hmmmmm......you've hit an area that I am concerned about as well. I think that this is one reason that up to this point, I've been having so much trouble deciding!!

Just checked the boards and am so thankful for all the advice and encouragement! I have sat down this morning and tried to really look at the guide more and even have looked on Amazon.com about buying some of the books that they recommend for ECC (haven't done this for MFWK, yet. It might help me if...
