Hello, I would like to hear from anyone who has complete Core F - Eastern Hemishpere from Sonlight.  What ages were your children?  How much did everyone learn, enjoy...?  How much focus is ther e on the Middle East?   Any specific comments.  I currently use My Father's World and am satisfied, but rather than repeating thier geography core (ECC), I was thinking of using Sonlight for that year.  I will have an 8th grader, a 6 grader and a 3rd grader.

I don't know much about SL, but have you looked into Tapestry of Grace?  You can use it for multiple grades.  The 3rd to 8th spread you have may be difficult with SL, that I do know.  We absolutely LOVE TOG.

We are reading the Core F books now.  They are really good and a nice break from all the American History stuff we usually do.  My son is 11 and we don't use the IG, just read the books.
