  1. I feel like we're just beginning to get the hang of the logic stage with my oldest of 4 and now we're moving 3 time zones away. My kids are 10, 8, 5 (I'll be pulling her out of K and making her part of the homeschool again) and 22 months. Any tips for how to keep my sanity? Should we try to subsist academically on worksheets, games, and audio books until we settle? Or should all hands go on deck toward the moving project? Any good or bad experiences? Any threads that have already hashed all this out?
  2. Thanks for all the input. Most of all, it helps not to be alone in this!
  3. Thank you--it always helps to know what has worked for other people. Do you adjust the amount of time spent on history because you know you're going to hit it again in writing?
  4. We've been doing WTM for 6 years and CC for 3, where I've gone along to get along. Now my oldest has reached "5th grade" so I am trying to fuse WTM Writing/History/Science "spines" with IEW's Ancient History-Based Writing Lessons that we do in Classical Conversations's Essentials program. But I am having a Dickens of a time figuring out how to interweave everything so that we cover necessary skills and don't ride the child roughshod. Since I have three children younger than him, it's especially important to me to use time wisely. Has anyone attempted this? Here are my ideas so far: 1. Use
  5. Thanks. That was a good read.
  6. Hi there. New here. I've been reading (and doing) WTM for about 6 years. My oldest has reached 5th grade, and my other kids are 3rd grade, kindegarten, and 20 months. School is about to begin and I'm already tired, worried. All the feelings again. Never thought to find support here, but it looks like folks have really hung together with some tough times. Maybe I can hang with y'all too.
