    Amy, I hope your leg heals. I don’t know what you did to it, but I hope the treatment is right. And I still want to read COUNTING BY 7s. I read the first couple of chapters to see what it was like, and I loved it 🙂

  2. I’ll pray your leg gets to feeling better. I KNOW how much pain like that can affect your mood and homeschool. I’m finding that chiropractic is working well for me – I hope you have the same results!

    I love those chalk pastels. 🙂

  3. Hi Amy, do you have a post on using MCT with FLL? I have been looking at MCT online and wasn’t sure if it was something to use while going through FLL or not, and how to combine the two. I’m also still on the fence about doing grammar separately with my kids or just doing grammar together. I’d love to get your thoughts on that sometime!

      Catherine,
      I think I read the first book of MCT with Lulu last year (my memory is foggy because I was pregnant most of last school year), but it might’ve been her second grade year. Anyway, I read Grammar Island as a read-aloud with her on the couch, and I think we meanwhile kept going in FLL. At the time, Louise would’ve been a K-er or a 1st grader, and it seemed overkill for her, so I didn’t include her. Since then, we’ve more or less added a sentence from Practice Island (4 level analysis) to Lulu’s independent work each day. Ideally we will continue this because it’s a good way to talk through grammar, but I would love to add Louise into the discussion. I think keeping your older two together in grammar is a great idea! I hope we can merge some of what mine do in the near future. 🙂
