Saw our friends from Demme publishing at the convention- who you might recognize from my recent Spelling You See review. We're crossing over and not only using their Math You See, but just purchased their Stewardship (personal finance) program as well.
We didn't buy much else: 2 Usborne books- one on Shakespeare Theater and another Greek Myths, an absolutely beautiful book of Astronomy by CLE, the Jim Weiss abridged CD of For the Temple.
I have a short list all around for next year, including the History of Science and the History of the Renaissance World, both by Susan Wise Bauer. Cub knocked out the 900 page History of the Ancient World in the first two weeks of his arm break fiasco and was simultaneously repelled and enthralled. More to come, which I know he'll love.
Anyway, we are still finishing up this year. Cub is almost done with First Form, (finally, again!), and he's stopping for the summer on Chapter 11 of Adv Biology. Math will continue, just for fun. Flower is going to keep doing Spelling, Prescripts, and mental math.. One more chapter till Notgrass American History is finished. Over 900 pages, y'all. They loved it! And maybe grammar charts, but certainly listening to Cycle 1 and 2 Grammar in prep for Challenge A.
Flower has taken to painting rocks. We certainly have enough of them! Good, clean fun, albeit hard on one's toes under the wrong conditions.
