From my understanding of Saxon Math, it is very advanced so if your kids are struggling, then finish the 5th grade or switch curriculum. NO sense making them hate math because of a difficult curriculum! Besides, who wrote the rule that says you can only do 5th grade school in 5th grade?

I have a 6 yo working on 2nd grade stuff and a 9 yo working on 1st grade stuff. Work with them where THEY are at, not where society thinks they should be. That's the whole point of homeschooling: to teach your kids where & how they learn best. If it is at a 'slower' pace, then go for it!
