It sounds like we are on the same page as you. We are beginning Week 7. We also just started reading Caddie Woodlawn. So far my son really enjoys it. Before that we read Across Five Aprils and Behind Rebel Lines Both great books about the Civil War. We borrowed the "Little House" book from the library on CD and son listened to that in his free time...usually at bedtime. I think I will do that with the other "Little House" books listed in the Middlers Pack as well. I love "Little House" but there are so many other wonderful books to read for history.

This was the LAST thing he wanted to do during his free time and would therefore complain. Perhaps smaller chunks during school will be more acceptable. We'll see.
I am finding that my son does not want to do many of the WP activities. He seems to find most of them "boring and a waste of time." His words. We'll see how he likes the gold panning this next week.
