I have a couple in mind. Hoping to make a final decision at the Homeschool Convention in a couple of weeks!

What about KONOS? Would love to hear your thoughts.

I LOVE the idea of KONOS, but it requires a lot of prep work...which is ok but with Briggs being so young it made it hard to get all that I wanted out of it. It's a great curriculum I would recommend it to anyone. It was a little over Briley's head on a lot of activities. I think when she's in 3rd grade and up I may go back to it. Depending on how much I love FIAR! Robin Meadows did it with some of her kids so she would be a great resource to contact.
