I started talking with a few more families who use Sonlight and tried to take their advice and see how that might fit in with my family. The "cores" cover a range of ages, so I have decided it might be in my best interest to wait on those until I can at least be reading to 2 or 3 of the kids. I can't imagine reading 4 seperate cores in a couple of years, there just wouldn't be enough time in the day!! There are a couple of things we will continue to work on like reading, math and writing. These are subjects I can work on with each kid individually and at their own pace.
I did start Addison on her kindergarten math program. I chose Horizons and I am not totally loving it. It is very repetitive and so far she hasn't learned anything. It says to do 1 lesson a day, but she likes to pick it up and do 5 or 6 at a time. I don't push it on her, just whenever she wants, we do it.
The other thing I purchased was a handwriting program that I have been very anxious to start. I did try it out 1 day a while back, but I decided to wait. I had Addison up at our counter and she just wasn't at the angle and she got very frusterated. I decided it was time to order a preschool table where everything would be just at the right height. We did get the table and I have just been waiting for things to settle down from the holidays to get started.
