We homeschooled both of our girls ~ k-12 ~ 16yrs total. And we actually did P.P. 2 different years! Our girls are 3 yrs apart & we did it when they were K-3 & again when they were 4-7 & really, we enjoyed it much more & did for more w/it the 2nd time. They were so young the 1st time that it seemed like a whole new study.

I've actually done a review of it on my blog & also have an article I did about it in my old column for The Old Schoolhouse magazine.

When you kids get older, be sure to check out Margie Grey's "Where the Brook & River Meet" & spend a yr w/"Anne of Green Gables."
