Thank you all for the help. I'm sure I'll have more questions as we begin this journey. Quote: Originally Posted by cappuccinosmom Budget for two paychecks a month.

I'm getting pretty nervous as the time to begin gets closer and more and more "real". I'm still kind of overwhelmed, but since deciding to try mbtp (I think), I've relaxed a bit. I'm looking for math and phonics curricula that will fit our needs now and have such a lot of work to do before the local...
