~I am an eclectic teacher....we won't be doing all of the activities included in some of the resources.
~I am trying some of these resources for the first time...I am not opposed to stopping if I see they're not working for our family, but after much research and looking at sample pages, they are my top choices for now. 
~Many of these links are to the resource, but I was able to find most of them inexpensively used by utilizing our local homeschool resource library,, and homeschool used curriculum sites.  Some of them are still on my wish list...
~We're starting "Kindergarten" early.  We've been doing preschool for a couple of years and Kyler is more than ready.  I'm excited to let Kyler advance naturally in his stronger subjects.
