A few changes I've made already

As satisfied as I am with my choices, I've had to change a few things to fit us better.

Christian Light Education math was NOT for us. It was too choppy and too much review for Sweet Pea 1. We've changed to Bob Jones University Math. SP1 and I are much happier and think this will be a good choice.

The science area is bombing out for us. SP is not liking the Real Science 4 Kids or the God's Design. He says "I want REAL experiments." So I ordered Exploration Education. I still plan on possibly doing the Apologia Botany this Spring along with EE. SP will get to build 8 projects over the year and all the materials are included. He's excited.

JAG is going great. DS likes it and it takes only a few minutes each day. It is easy for him right now though, but I know it will get a little harder over time.

Everything else is smooth sailing. We're happy with all the rest of our materials.

Now, if I could just SELL those other things that we don't like.

Your assessment seems wise and sounds like your plans will be an improvement.
You sound like such a veteran homeschooler now :-)
Glad your year is starting out nicely !

Knowing your child and making a change is what is so great about homeschooling. Of course it can be expensive too! I had to change my 3rd grade ds back to Saxon from Rod & Staff 3 and there was nothing wrong with it really just didn't work for him. :)
