I've just come across two excellent posts on planning out your own history/literature program so that you can make it exactly what you want it to be. I'm putting the links here so they don't get lost in my bookmarks because i want to be able to come back to them later in the year and use their words of wisdom.
We do our own thing now, but it's not nearly as a complete or cohesive as i would like moving forward. Especially with Flossy heading for the logic stage and wanting to keep everyone in the same history period but cater to each child.
The second post in this thread is a real winner in my opinion.
Hope this might help some of my homeschooling friends :)
