Do you have to prepare meals they give you or is it a system to help prep meals you already have on the menu?

With October 1/2 over already - would it be worth the money to order SOJ or should i wait until Winter?

I already have the SOJ ones and went ahead and bought Oct from LA. I really like the mix of them... LA is nice because I need the structure a week by week outlines gives me but it's so nice to be able to incorporate more ideas from SOJ.

SOJ you can buy the summer, spring, fall, and winter at anytime. no need to wait. I have all four and went ahead and started the winter one as it snowed here on sept 28th!

So from what I gather, SOJ is not as good for older kids? My oldest is almost 7...and we have a 5, 4, 2 yr old as well.

Is LA better for this age group then? I need someone to do the work for me...I'm pregnant and tired, due in december, and not in the mood to do much other than sit and sleep And after babe comes and winter hits full force I'll be less inclined to do anything. So it seems using LA would be best for our family? Any advice?

Is december coming out soon for LA? I think I will buy the 3 pack (sept, oct, nov) and just save for next year. Or is that a waste? I didn't see an option to buy Nov. seperate yet.....

How does OM compare? So far we use things here and there for academic stuff for the 5 and 6 yr old...but I have no motivation and lack it bad b/c of this tiring pregnancy. I assume LA is to supplement the academic type stuff we do (reading, math, writing, etc) Am I right about that?

Lemon Juice,

i would say any of them would work fine with a 7 yr old. none of them are really geared for anyone younger then 4 really. a three year old might be able to do some of it but my near two year old skips most everything in them right now.

I would say LA is way more laid program out for you so you just do what it says and check it off the list (+ whatever else you do and the more 'academic-y stuff)

Oak meadows is nice I have their preschool program too, I don't believe it has any laid out plans until the 1rst grade so very well may be a good choice for your seven yr old but maybe not so much for the younger set if you are looking for something a bit more structured.

SOJ though has lots of fun activity's and songs to do with kids that even your older child would probably like but is not structured so you would have to put the days plans together yourself...

I hope that helps

So can you do these without major amounts of singing? I'll do it, but its not really my thing.

you could... just do the crafty projects... or maybe use the songs as more of a verse/poem rather then a song. of if your kids are older have them make up their own songs.
