    That sounds like a very comprehensive plan. I am hoping daughter is challenged appropriately in her second grade in school. Last year everything was OK except math, so we supplemented a lot at home.

    Hey! I was just curious how you do both Song School Latin and Prima Latina. We are currently using Song School Spanish and love it. I had originally purchased Prima Latina to start with my children, but have been wondering if I wanted to use Song School Latin. Any insight would be great! Thanks!!

    @Sage H. I'll be posting how I scheduled everything on Monday, but in short, only Bear is doing Prima Latina and she will do that lesson on Thursdays and then we will review during our memory time. SSL will be for both of them and will get done during Snack Time on Fridays. SSL will get reviewed through the songs either during their playtime or in the car when they get driven to lessons. We have already done SSL 1 and I purchased SSL 2 on a whim after I had already bought PL:)

    Great! After I posted, I realized that you would probably answer my question on Monday:) Thanks!!

    We're restarting Song School this year, I got it, but wasn't super diligent with it. Glad to see you back online.

    I haven't been organized as you are but we share much of the same curriculum. We are planning to start Grammar Island but haven't looked at the entire MCT well enough. I haven't been online much but are you pregnant? If so, congratulations!!

    Oh I miss the K curriculum! Enjoy it to the fullest. My son is now starting 6th grade and does not need me as much…Good luck with your plans!

    I have one who is doing K5/1st this year, but we are using some of the same stuff. We had the same issue with attempting a complete curriculum. I even looked at "Moving Beyond the Page," which is supposed to be for kids working ahead, but it just didn't seem like it would fit. Did you do Telling God's Story Year 1 already? Did you like it? We are starting that this year. Hopped over from iHN's hop.

    @Kate, We have nearly finished Telling God's Story Year 1. We are not using the activity book to go with it. The kids like it, as do I. I like how each lesson starts with scripture (no more than a paragraph or two, which is perfect in length for J-jo) and then they explain the story from scripture using analogies that the children can relate to. We have the activity guide for Year 2 because Amazon had it ridiculously cheap, but I don't even know if we will bother with it.

    I looked through the activity guide for year 1 and it is very involved, but I think it will work for us. My daughter loves doing crafty stuff! I am glad, though, that you don't think it is necessary, which means if we have a day/week that we can't get the activities in, the teaching won't be totally lost. I also like that the scripture is just long enough. We used Bible Study Guide for All Ages last year, and while I loved that it wasn't story based, sometimes it would call for 5 or 6 pages of the Bible to be read in a sitting, and that was just too much. She would be done coloring before I had even finished the first page!

    Oh, Julie, your year looks wonderful! Your children are so very intelligent. You are blessed! Prayers for you that you have a fun, happy year filled with lots of special memories and learning together with your family.I have missed it, but why did you not continue on with Sonlight? I will try the link above and see if it answers this question. If so, don't worry about taking the time to email me with the answer.

    How did you like A First a Book in American History? I have considered that. We we went most of the way through History for Little Pilgrims and didn’t care for it much. What was your experience?

    Hi Julie! I’m haven’t seen an update on your blog for a while, I hope you are happy and doing well! I’m glad I clicked over because we may have a CC group starting up in our area. I like the looks of some of the memory work – especially the ones you mentioned liking in your post (that you closed comments on). Are you still doing CC at home? I’ve never really been a Classical homeschooler, but my son really liked Veritas Press Self-Paced History and really likes to memorize things! (I was never good at it, so shied away, but I love the idea of it now).

    I would love to see how you are and what you are doing now all these years later! Hope you and your family are well. ♥
