Thanks for the warm welcome from all of you. I wish I had started with FIAR earlier, but I'm thankful I can take my 2 youngest through all of the books. And my middle 3 will get quite a bit of Beyond as well. And actually ALL of the kids will get to experience some of it due to the read alouds that I read during lunch, the special meals, and special activities. It is kinda different to be starting something new as a "seasoned homeschooler" but really not that surprising as I love to switch things up. I'm developing my list of "tried and true" things and I don't doubt that FIAR will end up on that list.

Hi Shelly. Yes, that is where I heard Steve this past convention. It was so inspiring.

Thanks again.
