  1. Yeah, ATVs are looking too powerful the more I research them- even their smallest ones with speed locks. I'm not really worried about the uneven terrain. Our land is mostly flat. The "hills" being slight raised areas where ponds were built and the dirt was flattened out over a small sections. I'm eyeing this Power Wheels jeep right now. However, it's on the pricier side and the shipping is another $100. I'm so spoiled by Amazon Prime that shipping of any amount irks me. LOL
  2. Looking to get my three daughters (ages 4,6,8) some sort of battery operated vehicle for our homestead (one vehicle to share). I'd like something for them to be able to ride around on our property. It definitely wouldn't be used expressly on cement or driveway but actual terrain. We live on 5 acres of varying terrain. Overall very level but some small mounds/hills. Some dirt/mud and gravel areas. I've been looking into power wheels but wonder if I might be better off with something a bit more powerful. I dislike the thought of the plastic tires on them and would prefer rubber tires. H

  11. I wrote about our adventures with Narnia here. My oldest was 6 at the time but she still recalls significant chunks and incidences from the books. That's not to say I won't be rereading it aloud when my youngest gets a bit older.
  12. Are you talking about their Writing And Rhetoric stuff? If so I know Chelli over at Planted Trees used it. You may want to contact her and ask for some specifics.
  13. Thanks for these resources. Anyone have any others?
  14. Thanks for this. I guess what I was wondering about was where LFC would lead up to. I'm glad to hear you enjoy Latin Alive just as much.
  15. So we LOVED Song School Latin 1 and 2. Seriously- loved the gentle and fun way to start Latin. But now I'm wondering where we want to go next. Do I stay with Classical Academic Press and do Latin For Children? Or do I take a year to work through the copy of Minimus Mouse I already have on my shelf. Or should I start something like Prima Christina? Or since we were already doing the Classical pronunciation on SSL would that not work? What about Latin's Not So Tough? Lively Latin? I plan on using Visual Latin as a supplement but want something else for our spine. I know there have
