I really, truly was trying to hold off on ordering it till she was a bit older...but when she started attempting basic addition and subtraction on her own, I figured it was time. So we got the starter blocks, Primer manual, student text and DVD today. She was SO excited when the UPS guy dropped off the box and I told her it was homeschool stuff inside!

She sat right down and breezed through the first lesson. I have a feeling the second (which she's already begging to do tomorrow) will be just as easy - although she's still not *great* with her writing, so maybe we can stretch it out by working on that a bit.

I freaked out a bit when I saw that it was "only" thirty lessons - after today went so quickly - but I'm SURE it'll get harder for her. (Right?)

Had to snap a pic of my princess "doing math"...

Thanks for letting me share - I'm just so excited that SHE is so excited!!

Awww how cute. Don't worry it gets a lot harder from lesson 9 on.

I don't know whether to be reassured or frightened...!

There's a big jump at lesson 9. Cameron has breezed through on occasion, but right now he's doing one section of a page a day so he's going super slow (even though what he is doing - adding hundreds) is easy for him. That's okay with me since I don't think he's quite ready for the mastery required for Alpha quite yet.

That's great!! I'm still holding off on ordering. I just don't feel like my little guy is ready. I'm glad she likes it and is having fun with it!!
