2 months ago I decided to switch to CM. I joined the 4Real Learning forum, and bought "Real Learning" last month. I have also been reading everyone’s blogs. I have learned so much from everyone here. 2 months ago, I could not have imagined my 12 year old reading an Acient Egypt book to our 8 year old, let alone see him sitting still long enough to listen. I bought all the Ancient Egypt books from the book list. We had been using Seton’s History, but I gave up last year. It just didn’t work for us. We have done more school the past month, than in the last year.
