Anyway, just wondering has anyone used Sonlight in a less scheduled manner. Just read through the books, do some of the discussion questions, etc without worrying what is on the schedule for the week. I guess in Core F/5 it would make more sense to go in some kind of order at least by country, but other than that, I was seriously thinking of ignoring the actual schedule and just reading through the books by country. Thought we might add in some other world geography, we have a couple of other resources like Trail Guide and a text that we could add in as we are going through each country.
It feels like a waste to not use the schedule, but just wondering if others feel like their kids learned a lot even if they did not follow everything to a T.

While the books are usually strategically placed, there is some fudge room in there. It often doesn't matter if you do one resource before another... either way, you'll make some connections between different books you've read. And sometimes the info is presented in the history spine first, and sometimes it's in the historical fiction read-aloud first.
