Posted: Wed Aug 09, 2006 8:28 am My afternoons are completely full five days a week and I start school between 8:00 and 9:00 and get everything accomplished in the TM. I have trained them to work hard and get their work done, which is really hard for me personally, I had to "train" myself, lol, and...

Fitting It All In - With 5 children

Hi! I am a mother of 5 dds, ages 10,8,6,4and 1. I have been homeschooling from the beginning. We were "doing school" all day (8-4pm) nearly everyday. As I am maturing in Christ, I began to see that I was not focused on what the Lord wanted me to do with His children, but trying to prove success to ...

Posted: Mon Aug 07, 2006 9:46 am I have also used HGTA art programs. Personally I copied every page, twice -- that was hard!!!! If I had it to do over, I would have purchased extra books. As a side note, because I used the book and copied all the pages, my book is in excellent condition. However, I...

I must say for your ages, I agree with the post before this and will not repeat her great advice here. Adventures sounds like a great fit. CTG will cover the Bible in depth. I am sure God will lead you and give you peace about the right curriculum. I like the TM and enjoy having it laid out and I ca...

Does your daughter "need" to "catch up" and be on grade level?? If you think, "No, I just want her to learn and love learning," then my reply might help. My oldest is behind grade level in Math.

I get all of my supplies from How Great Thou Art and am very pleased with the quality. I see them as the Hazell's of the Art world. Plus, I feel good giving my money to the Stebbing's because they are believers who want to bless homeschool families by letting families copy the books for all children...

Occupying many little ones

Keeping everyone out of trouble At the MACHE conference I heard David Hazell tell about his MFW Program. I have 7 children in all, and I needed something easier than what I had been doing, especially as the little ones get past babyhood. It sounded good to me! I need a guide to keep us moving on so...
