I will still be using my book lists I posted. My new plans should give us more time for good literature, not less. This was a driving factor in the switch, other then the cost issue.
We've been so bogged down by historical fiction we've been losing the joy and flow of history, itself.
This also reminds me of something important. There is no perfect curricula. There are things perfect or close for individuals in seasons, but no one program that meets all needs at all times. So when something isn't right, and you can't make it feel right, it's ok to let it go and search out a better fit.
I have loved programs in the past and been devoted. Now, we don't use those things. And that ok.
It's about the journey as much as the ending.
