  1. How is Our Mother Tongue working for you? If I had discovered it earlier I would have definitely given it a try.

    • It works great for me, my son doesn’t love it so much. At first he liked it ok because it was easy. But as it got harder there wasn’t a lot of explanation on the more difficult concepts, so it needed more teaching from me than I wanted. We actually bit the bullet and bought Analytical Grammar for next year. That’s really what I wanted to get last year but it’s so expensive that my husband said “No way.” But this year I took him to the AG vendor workshop at the conference, and afterward he marched straight down to the booth and bought it, lol.

  2. We used AG this year and it has been great. I waited too many years because of the cost and wasted money in the meantime.

  3. Looks great! My kids are using some of the same things this year. We start on Monday.
    Blessings,
    Dawn

  4. We will be using Life of Fred (but pre-algebra) and Apologia! If we get to spend any more extra I want to do Logic with my boys… Thanks for posting! Happy Homeschooling!

  5. We also are using Singapore Math, Handwriting without Tears and will be starting Spelling Power for the first time this year. I’m so excited!

  6. I love Fred! Looks like you have a full year planned.

  7. We’ve looked and looked at TOG. Even though it seems very appealing, I don’t think it would work for us; I’m too opinionated. LOL

  8. Great list 🙂

    We are doing Tapestry as well…but we’re using Year 3. Beginning in October!

  9. I’d love to hear how AG works for you. I keep thinking about it, but it keeps not being in the budget. I spent $11 on our grammar for this year. I bought a used copy of Winston grammar which I intend to use on a whiteboard with my two eldest (since the student book is partially used) and a copy of Warriner’s Fourth Course I am hoping I can pull some more difficult sentences from for my eldest to work with.

  10. i have just come across your blog and am considering homeschool next year. i am curious to know if you do each subject every day, basically the same thing everyday or do you split the subjects up. i’d love to see how a typical day or week lays out for a homeschooling family and i’ve yet to find that. thanks in advance, i realize you may not reply as this post is nearly a year old.

  11. We will be using TOG Year 3 this year as well. 🙂 Looks like a great year is in store for you all!

  12. Wow, I’m not sure how many kiddos that was but that seemed like a lot of scheduling! HA

    Thanks for linking up with me. This has been a lot of fun.

  13. It looks like your year is well planned! I am still working on our plans…I have the curriculum purchased, but need to get organized now. :O)

  14. Great choices as always. It is nice to see you again.
    blessings,
    Dawn

  15. You have helped me in my homeschool years so much!
