Re: Library not available. Is this a concern with MFW?

We love MFW and we are not using the book basket. We are in week 5. I planned on picking some up at the library but haven't done it yet. I picked and chose readers for my children to read from another program rather than book basket. This has worked for us, and I don't care what anyone says, I reall...

Re: unbelieveable start

We've had a wonderful start, too. Don't you just love that?? We are thrilled. We just finished week 4 in Ex-1850 today. My kids are loving it and learning a lot.

How long for Apologia General Science?

I am trying to schedule my ds and I needed to know approx. how long per day does it take to do a MFW daily lesson plan. He loves to read and is very quick if that helps. We love Science so we'll probably do all the experiments. Also, is it better to do everyday or should I block schedule it? Thanks...

Re: ? busy 18 month old toddler :)

Hi Leah, We are in the same boat! We have a very active little girl. Last year was difficult as well because she wanted to be apart of everything "school". Each time I would start to read anything she would start yelling "La La La La" and try to read, too. :) We started our new school year last week...

First Day :) EX-1850

We had a wonderful day. My favorite part was listening to my 3 boys ( 12, 10, almost 7) talking together and sharing facts about each of the books we read. We learned about Leif Ericcson and started our timeline. =-) Looking forward to another day. I have pictures. They have a special link for shari...

Re: anyone have their kids read most of the books on their own?

My oldest son is extremely independent. I worried about it for a while until someone set me straight. They told me that this is the goal. We as adults teach ourselves, read ourselves, study ourselves... he has used programs like Sonlight and WinterPromise on his own and just checks things off as he ...

Re: Family Size - Scheduling many children w/ EX-1850

I'm the exact same boat, and the same program! Last year was tough, when our little girl was less than a year. I'm anticipating a tough year this year too since now she is toddling, screaming, kicking, LOL Just be flexible and trust God to provide for their needs. This time with little ones is short...

Re: Ever feel guilty buying brand new curriculum?

I don't feel guilty at all. In fact, I feel guilty when I find it used cheap. I like supporting the company I'm using so they can continue. Plus, I feel My Father's World is saving me a lot of money. I'm coming from Sonlight and WinterPromise.

Re: Need encouragement!

I just wanted to let you know that I'm in the same boat ;) I don't even think I've ever posted on this forum, I just read it, lol Anyhow, I just wanted to send sympathetic hugs and let you know that I am going to pray for you. This is a season and it will pass. This is what I tell myself. Just enjoy...
