Satori, thanks for the feedback. I guess I can relax a bit over it now. I hope to have some time between receiving the materials and traveling so we can go to stores/order online for supplemental materials and school supplies we may not have an easy time finding (or which are outrageously priced) over here. And then, decide what goes into carryon and what is risked in checked baggage.
5th grader started American history this year, so I think I'd rather supplement than replace. We'll need to keep on with Islamic Studies and Arabic language, and that would all be our own supplemental curricula, and dd recently took up an interest in French, so we'll add that, too. That said, we have opportunities in comparative religions and Middle Eastern and Asian history we'd never have back home. I feel like I need to focus hard with them on LA, math and science.
I know you all have BTDT for a while, but I am really nervous about jumping into this. We're moving to a different city, one with a strong and diverse HS group that I plan to get involved in for extracurricular/social opportunities, and I know my kids will be great. But still nervous about taking on such a huge responsibility.
