2012-2013 Homeschool Plans

We're in our 3rd week of this school year, and so far things are going well.  I've already made some changes, though.  I had thought I'd include M and L in Tapestry of Grace with J and C, but it wasn't such a hit the first two weeks. I talked it over with Steve and told him Tapestry might be a bit easier for me with them, but that they would probably enjoy Five In A Row more.  I loved using Five In A Row with my older 3 children when we first began homeschooling.  So Steve told me to return to using Five In A Row with M and L this year.  I had used it last year but I wasn't diligent enough in getting the lessons covered with them, so I am committing to doing better this year, and they promised not to complain about hearing the same book each weekday.  This was our first week with Five In A Row.
