The library didn't have as much as I had hoped. They had a learning resource person who is an ex-teacher as well and she suggested a book called "write ahead" which I have never heard of. When I looked at the time4learning site, my dd said it was the same as compass odyssey, which she has the password for from ps.
I got this Saxon set from christian book distributors. Not that it will help you right now, but they run 40% off in the spring (for future reference if it works for you).

As for the grammar, we just use the free handbook. We're going through it pretty quickly, so I will supplement with this free Kindle book. I plan to introduce diagramming at that point.
