I am getting ready to start some REAL Spanish with my 7 year old.  We have done some fun reading, words, and phrases, but I would like to get started on regular instruction.  I know plenty of Spanish, so it doesn't have to be easy for me, just enjoyable for her.  Does anyone have any stories of successful curriculum or strategies?

Thanks!

Yes!  I got a free demo of that on CurrClick and really liked it.  I haven't given it to my daughter yet, but I liked the way it was presented.  Thanks!

My 10 y.o. is doing the online Power-Glide for middle school.  They have an elementary version, also.  He is LOVING it!

I like the method much better than Rosetta Stone.  However, many HS'ers love RS.  Many public libraries have free access to it.

The library may also have Muzzy.  Again, I don't like it, but others do.  I think it's best for early elementary ages.
