W and I are both really enjoying the homeschool life lately. Maybe because the weather has been beautiful for the last few weeks, but I especially feel a nice sense of calm. Using the Worldbook course of study as our guideline has been perfect. We have a great list of what's typical for 5th grade and we cover each subtopic as we like. It's working. And neither of us feels stressed. I love being able to go very in-depth with certain things and revisit subjects until I know for sure he knows it. I have no doubt he'll be more than prepared for high school.
