  1. You are right about art, I don't want their young years to go by to fast. Any suggestions of a library book or website? I am definetly not an artist!
  2. Thanks alot, I have a lot to think through. I really appreciate reading the WTM link on education for K-4, I saved the article on my computer. I'm going to look into Rightstart and Math-u-See, hopefully I'll be able to make a choice and order one by the end of next week. I also appreciate the suggestion on not forgetting to do memorization. We have been memorizing nursery rhymns from What your 1st grader need to know book. I think that will count? You ladies have some awesome blogs how do you find the time???? :lol:Just want to say thank you. Wow I'm looking forward to homeschooling but I do know it's not going to always be a easy job.
