We're excited!

Our THIRD (yes third) curriculum this year arrived today. Sonlight. We can't wait to start it! I didn't think I would be this excited since we've struggled so much these first 2 years, have tried different stuff, and not liked any of it. I guess I thought I wouldn't have so much enthusiasm since other things we've tried have failed. Anyways, the kids were so excited when they opened that big box of beautiful books. It was like Christmas. I plan to take the next week to familiarize myself with the program. Just wanted to say "I'm hopeful!", which I know you mamas on this forum would understand, especially other mamas whose first few years have been like ours.......a struggle to find our fit in the homeschooling world.

Re: We're excited!

Have fun! I've had years like that! our first year dd was in K and we did Abeka. Our second year she was in first and we did Rod and Staff for awhile, BJU, and Ambleside. then for Second grade we did Sonlight, ambleside, and back to sonlight. Then finally the third year I found My Fathers World and havent switched since! (well this year I borrowed Switched On Schoolhouse and tested it for 3 weeks while our basement was being fixed, that was more like a pause than a different curriculum, and our kids tried public school for two months once. We hated it. but for the most part we've stuck with the same old same old.)

How exciting! I hope Sonlight is a good fit for your family and you won't have to try anything else for a long time. Our first half of this year has been a struggle too and now we found Heart of Dakota and it's the perfect thing for us.

I'm interested in knowing how you like the Sonlight program, since this is what I plan on using with my daughter for kindergarten. Hope it works out well!
