I wanted to add something--it takes us *very* little time to actually do the work. 1 hr a day maybe. There is plenty of time for doing lots of fun educational stuff outside of the curriculum, and I've added or substituted stuff along the way, as long as it follows the general direction of the course.
With the math thing, for instance, ds was *way* ahead, and there was no way I was going to make him sit through every single lesson for the sake of following the curriculum. The school had no problem with him completing and sending in two or three tests at a time. He completed 4 tests to send in at once and finish first grade math a few weeks ago, and his 2nd grade math should be arriving soon.
