Last Year we attempted to do Year 1 ( I had 4 children at the time, now we have 5 - baby is 4 mo. old right now).
We were not successful. I felt like I was all over the place - trying to do everything perhaps and not getting much of anything done except for droning on and on in my Bible reading to the children.
DH is a preacher and not in favor of Bible "story books" - so I was trying to read all of the Bible assignments to the children. It was rough. We didn't get very far...maybe not even out of Unit 1 - I honestly don't remember.
I don't want to give up on Tapestry. My sister is using Tapestry and I've been talking to her about all of this. She said she couldn't have done it w/just using the Bible either - too much reading - especially to Lower Grammer.
The children are currently ages 8, 7, 5, 3 and 4 mos.
