Hi! I am a military wife with five adorable kids (well, most of the time...) We are moving to Naples, Italy this fall for a three year assignment, and for a variety of a reasons have decided to homeschool. This will be our first venture in home educating!
I want to take advantage of the amazing opportunities we'll have to travel and center our studies around what we're seeing. It seems that TOG would be a good fit, with it's emphasis on humanities.
However, I'm concerned about being a first-timer and getting overwhelmed.
My kids will be in 7th, 5th, 2nd and K, plus a 2 yr old in the mix. I would love any and all input! I'm wondering how more experienced homeschoolers think it would go for us and even which units of TOG would fit best. Should I forgo getting an entire year set, and instead get a series of units? If so, which ones? I definitely want to hit the Renaissance as well as some modern history (WWI and II).
