Do any of you have any experience or opinions to share with me? I have been using SCM (loosely) this year, and was gearing up for a more structured year next year. Our Mom's group recently heard a speaker from a local CC group and I am intrigued, but not thouroughly convinced. Rote memorization seems so dull, but the video clips on the website show everyone having fun(of course!). So, I just would like to hear from any of you all, like I said, with either experience or just an opinion. I originally said no to the program, and to much of the formal 'classical' educating in general, now I am waffling. I think partly because I am homeschooling my youngest (9 dd) and she is the only child in the house now, so I worry about having friends...I feel like she's missing out somehow...we do go to church but we haven't been as consistent in attending as we could be.
