We decided several months ago to use Tapestry of Grace Year 1 next year. I am very excited about it. I am going to be involved in a small co-op (5 families) meeting every other week. We’ve never been in a co-op before so it will be a new experience for us. The kids are excited about the prospect. I hope to really have fun with TOG. I feel like we’ve just been going through the motions with Story of the World for the last 2 years. I have been busy studying booklists and trying to make decisions about which books to purchase. I still haven’t actually purchased my year plan. I hopefully will do that over the weekend. I know that I’ll really go nuts when I have it in hand, so it’s probably best for me to finish up this year!
I did find several books for our year plan at our homeschool group used book sale today. I got Usborne Beginners Egyptians, The Librarian Who Measured the Earth, Ancient Egypt Make it Work, and Black Ships Before Troy. I also found Miquon Red, Gizmos and Gadgets, and 7 paperback Thorton Burgess books. My grand total was $13.75.
