Re: Questions for anyone using Preparing with 11yo.

Thanks Carrie for your input. My ds 8 is a good reader so I don't think there should be a problem. I looked at a lot of the sample pages, but it sounds like a good idea to have my son read them to me. We just finished Apologia Astronomy and though I read it to them, I don't think he would have had a...

Re: Questions for anyone using Preparing with 11yo.

Thank you so much, ladies, for all your replies, I've looked at the placement charts numerous times. I have printed off the first weeks for Preparing, CtC, and RtR and read through them. I think for right now I am leaning toward CtC. I think the 9 yo could handle it. They have both had practice with...

Re: Questions for anyone using Preparing with 11yo.

Thanks 3muskateers, I was actually just looking over the HOD catalog again and considering CtC for the first time for next year and thought it actually might be a good fit skill wise for both of them. So I think either Preparing or CtC would work. Do you think it would be better to start with Prepar...

Re: Questions for anyone using Preparing with 11yo.

I'm sorry for not being clearer. I meant to say that we are really ready to go on in history and do something more modern since we spent two years on the time period from creation to around the end of the Middle Ages. I really don't want to go back and do Creation to Christ again. With either Prepar...

Questions for anyone using Preparing with 11yo.

Hello, I was all set to use RtR next year with my two ds who will be 9 and 11 in fall. I thought that I could easily modify RtR for the younger and sometime in the future maybe jump him back to do some of the earlier guides with his younger brother (7 in fall). I could either have him do Preparing a...

Re: Catalog brings character training

My four boys love the HOD catalog, too. I wonder where they got that from. :D I think my ds 10 has read it from cover to cover. The boys often grab it first thing in the morning and look at it together in bed, and the 3 yo looks through it and finds the LHTH guides and says, "This one me." I'm not s...

Re: Question about weight of RtoR package

I'm sure your friend would enjoy that basesloaded. It was nice chatting with you.

Anyone else have any idea how much the books all weigh?

Re: Question about weight of RtoR package

I was just talking to my friend who has been a missionary in Indonesia and is now in Russia. She felt like paying a little extra (like $50 or so?) would be better than shipping because you know you are going to get it. It has been very expensive to ship things to her in Russia, more than it was to ...

Re: Question about weight of RtoR package

We're in Benin, West Africa. Usually we're allowed a carry-on and two fifty pound check-ins per person. I'm hoping this is still the same. Airport regulations seem to be changing all the time. I was wondering how much weight the RtoR package would take since it's the weight that usually fills up fir...

Question about weight of RtoR package

I am so excited to have found Heart of Dakota. The children and I are eager to start school for next year already. We are working overseas as missionaries and just received our HOD catalog. Everyone, even the three year old has been poring over it. I guess he thinks it's a pretty important catalog j...
