I have spent so much time looking at curriculum my head is spinning. Our children are 14, 12, 9, 6, 5, 5, and 4. I have always kept them together for history using Veritas and All through the Ages, focing on living books. Then I discovered SCM and love it. Oldest is starting 9th in the fall and we want to do ancients in a year. I was thinking MFW AHL, but that does NOT include Rome. Also looking at BF or tweaking AO and SCM. But how can the first three modules of SCM be combined in a year as someone suggested earlier? I'd love to keep us all together studying history and with MFW she would be on her own. I'm also concerend about the littles getting to much info on pagans too early.
Her 12 year old brother is pretty able to stay with her on studies, but the BF Ancients cuts off at 8th grade and he will be 7th. She is particulary sensitive to godlessness and it would be nice to either have her with her brother or with the whole famiy for the Ancients.
Thanks fo sticking with me this far! Any help is appreciated. :-)
