Thank you all for the many suggestions and advice. I think it will all work out and we really do LOVE MFW! I agree that chapter 8 is not the norm for the entire book. I guess it ambitiously tackled a very large swathe of History. And I think the 3 weeks away from American History studying India, Chi...

Re: Homeschooling while caregiving

Hi, Well, my situation is quite a bit different that yours but in the last several months I have been dealing with the same sort of problem. My father became seriously ill in March. After a 2 week hospital stay we moved him into our home. We put off most homeschool for a month or two and tried to on...

Bible EX1850 - Two choices?

EXP-1850 looks really good and I am very excited to use it next year. I have a question though. I noticed there are two choices for Bible. What is the difference in plan A and plan B?

Thanks,
Linda

Thanks for the reply crystal! Yes, I am so thankful for the advice here on this board because I was sure I would go with Ex1850 for this year. I am glad you all helped me change my mind. We are having a great year with ECC so far (just finished week8). We just love it! I just got a little concerned ...

Those were some very good thoughts. You know its funny I had made up my mind. I "knew" my plan was the best one and then my husband mentioned the other plans. So, for the benefit of him I decided to post this question fully prepared for everyone to agree that doing the new History program would be b...

still pondering

Thankyou both for the input. I am still pondering over this but am pretty much decided I will not start at ECC and work through. I am still undecided about whether to start with ECC or Am. History. It just seems like a natural progression to do the new Am. History and use SOTW 3, since we have been ...

Julie, If I started at ECC as you suggest would you go on to CtG afterwards? I know my kids are really wanting to study American History and would not welcome studying Ancients again so soon. I do think you have some very valid points. I do see a lot of advantages to what you suggest but my main pro...
