It's okay. :-) Does that make you feel better? What I "hear" when I read your message is some wonderful, inquisitive kids who are *learning* so much! The great thing is that they will have American history again, more in depth in Years 4 and 5 of the history cycle - Adventures is meant to be an overview.Gail wrote:I am loving Adventures, but I wonder, Is anyone else as slow as I am?
For example: my dc are very outdoor oriented. To make wigwams and teepees they want real sticks, not construction paper. Sooo we have got to get out there to the top of the pasture and get the right size...after that they will be building entire villages.
We did do the yeast experiments. My dd made her own version of flat bread....flour, water, garlic, parsley and basil. It only needed to bake a little longer and it would've been great!
Please tell me its ok........
I've been using MFW now for 3 years - I've done the K, 1st, ECC, CTG, and RTR programs, and here's what I've learned. Even if I don't get to it all (cuz let's face it, LIFE just happens sometimes, and with kids, well, it tends to happen more often ,right?) - they still have learned SO much! These programs are rich with information and experiences, and even if some of them just don't get done, the rest are so wonderful, it makes up for the "missed".
