  1. I m definitely sold on the nature notebook! It looks amazing!! Everything else that I have looked at looks really good, too. Now I just have to decide what we should try out.
  2. Thank you for the link! I will check it out! I'm really liking what I see in this curriculum...just not sure of the history full year cycle every year.
  3. We have only used the early grades of Abeka (K-3)...it is fun, colorful, and very thorough. I have no complaints without Abeka...it has worked well for our family as a jumping off point. My son just finished grade 1 and really enjoyed it, but we are switching gears & going with Math Mammoth this next year...partly because we own the whole series & that's good for the budget, and he overheard me reviewing it with my daughter and wants to do it himself. I think they are both really good programs and have no complaints about either one. 😊
  4. Someone recommended The Good & the Beautiful to me while I was looking for a new approach to language arts. I had never heard of it before, so I went to check it out and it all looks so amazing!! Has anyone used all of her curriculum? I'm super curious to hear from those that have used it. My kids think the nature notebook looks amazing...I'm very interested in the history (even though it's a different path than we're used to...Ancient to modern every year, just different content)...I'm still digging & researching, but would really like to hear your likes/dislikes. We're moving toward a minimalist approach to "school" without sacrificing the education content and this looks to fit that category pretty well.
  5. No, I haven't heard of that one before. I will definitely go check it out! Thank you!!
  6. I'm looking for a way to streamline our language arts(grammar, spelling, & writing)...having a different curriculum or book for each individual subject is just not working for my kiddos (or me)...I need a way to make learning more enjoyable instead of "get out the book and do the lesson." School is starting to be a struggle and we need a new perspective.
  7. Whats the best way to cover grammar through narration/dictation/copywork, spelling & writing without overkill. I'm struggling with too many workbooks and trying figure out a way to combine/streamline some things without sacrificing education. I keep going back to the early school days and using McGuffey readers, but I'm just not sure how to make something like that work. I'd love to hear some other opinions & ideas.
  8. Ok, so I think I've got our history plans narrowed down. My kiddos will be 8, 11, & 15 this next school year. I have decided I definitely want to use Homeschool in the Woods Project Passport in some way with the younger 2 and maybe even some with my older dd because it's just so awesome. But now my question is do I pair it with MOH vol 1 & some lit books or BF Ancient History pak? I've used MOH years ago with my older kids so I am familiar with how it works, but we've never used BF before...however it looks awesome, too! So this is where I need your help...MOH + lit readers or BF Anceints? Thanks so much in advance for your thoughts. 😊
  9. I looked at Sonlights core G, but I'm afraid it is going to be to advanced for my 8yo...😕
  10. We just finished up 2 years of American history so I am thinking some kind of Ancient or world history. I was actually looking through my Sonlight catalog and wondering if I could beef up core B to work or if that would be too much work...
  11. Ok, so here's our story in a nutshell...we have been fulltime Rvers for the last year (meaning space is extremely limited, we don't have access to a library, & internet is not always reliable). I am looking to simplify our curriculum as much as possible without sacrificing education. This next year my kids will be 15, 11, 8, & 4...I am wanting to combine my 11 & 8 yo kids as much as possible & probably have the 4 yo tag along when he wants. I am starting to get overwhelmed with all of the different options & price tags! 😱 I'm torn between something like MFW or SL that has everything all planned out or something simple like STOW or MOH...please help me brainstorm and figure this out! We love reading aloud together, mapping/timelines etc...probably not so much on the hands on arts/crafts this year as we don't have the space to keep everything...and everything that is made is precious to my kids! Lol!! Anyway, I would love to hear what works & doesn't work for you!! Thank you for any help you can offer this worn out overwhelmed momma! 😜
  12. Thank you all for the many wonderful ideas! I am off to check them all out and see what we can fit in!
  13. Awesome! Thank you for the ideas!! Where do we get a state park sticker? Are they very expensive?
  14. Our plan is to start a blog as soon as we can. However, our home sold after being on the market only 11 days, so we are in panic mode right now trying to sort/purge/pack/load the RV etc. so we can be out and on the road by the end of April. Its crazy how much stuff 9 people can accumulate in just a couple years!! I will post back on the forums when we do get a blog up and going.
