we are using a pace system for homeschooling this year. my husband and his brothers used this program 5th grade thru highschool. My son Charlie, fixing to be 5, is starting with a 12 week reading program and then he will start the first grade. cosette, 8, will be starting on grade level with grade 3. i tested her and she measured at 4th grade, but we don't want her to miss anything. since this curriculum may be a permanent switch for us, we decided to just keep her on grade level instead of skipping third. we were using another program, but we didn't have as big a budget for schooling this year. i'm looking forward to a new year. the ymca is offering a homeschool PE class on wednesdays for $25/month per family. the kids can't wait!
