Winter Promise: A Review

I've had a lot of questions about our year with the Winter Promise curriculum. As I've told many people, we really enjoyed our year. It was exactly what we needed when we needed it. My children enjoyed themselves throughly, & I was given the peace of mind that I so desperately needed.

I finally took the time to write a lengthy review about the curriculum & I shared it over on The Curriculum Choice. I won't lie, it's a lengthy in-depth review. I had mixed feelings on the writing it because while we did fully enjoy our year the curriculum had a few flaws in it. However, I doubt anyone can attest that any curriculum is the perfect fit in all areas of their homeschool.

Along with my review I also added some tips for using & ordering the curriculum if you were to chose it for your own personal homeschool.

It was fun to look back over our school year & write about what we liked and didn't like. It was also fun to share what I learned in the ordering, learning, & using process. It was a very different curriculum then we'd every used before, but honestly we have no regrets. Regardless of any of that, I hope you enjoy the review.

Great review! I was deciding between Winter Promise and Sonlight for American History. What made you go to Sonlight for this year?

Book choices. I just liked the book choices better that I saw with Sonlight. :)

That seems to be it for me as well.
I am going to look into that timeline though.
