Literature based curriculum users ...I want to hear from you !

What does it look like with more than one child esp if they are several grades apart?

Sonlight or TOG ? or something completely different?

How do you teach a kid to write well if you are not a skilled writer? ( seen my blog? yup uh huh that would be me :D )

 Why do you like this style of curriculum?

What advice would you give to make getting started easier?

Be honest :) is there anything you find difficult or don't like?

What do you grade if you need to provide a grade report or proof of work ?

to be sensible, pure workers at home, kind, subject to their own husbands`titus2:5

Is it just me ? If find myself once again in this position where Im totally overwhelmed. Ive been doing things away from home and often doing so to help others out. Helping others is by no means bad but I get home and find myself overwhelmed by the mess.

When I keep things on schedule and picked up Im calm. The day flows better and Im at peace but when the dirty dishes sit in the sink, laundry is piled high , and so on I seriously can't think straight. I'm gripy and tend to shut down.

The thing is my husband and children don't seem to share this "anxiety chip" that makes larger explosions the worse the house is.

So I want to know...what's it like at your house? Did god design us this way? or is it completely different for you?
