Changes...

Now that all the boys evaluations are done and after this week I will have my mother, grandmother and brother moved closer to where we live, we can pick up the pace with out schooling.

I finally took the plunge and bought Unit 1 of Year 1 from Tapestry of Grace. I've been looking at it over a year, wondering if I can make it work.

I downloaded the three weeks sample, discovered most of the books at my local library, took a week for my brain to recover from the information overload that comes from one's first glance at TOG DE and wow....

I think it's going to work well. I can still use the Charlotte Mason aspects I love - the nature walks, the living books, etc. I love the way it covers everything but science and spelling and math (though I have my own preferences in those subjects anyway).

Now if the pollen will just wash away....
