  1. I'd feel very encouraged if my children's choice of resources was as substantial as this one you have here!

  2. Well, I was sort of a Curriculum junkie in the beginning as I was trying to figure out what they liked, what they would use independently while I was at work, as well as I used companion items to reinforce facts. So...now they know when to tell me something isn't working for them.

  3. We tried Saxon math after having tried several math programs. It has been a good fit for both of my daughters.
