We're pretty sure we've decided on our curriculum for the year (getting a late enough start... I know... driving me insane...).  Anyway, we've decided on Christopherus for 5th grade (with an Oak Meadow for math), Enki for K, and Little Acorn for the little ones.   My question is, when I buy the sets, will they include everything I need?  I mean, I know I'll need art and craft supplies and such, but will they contain all of the books I need, or will I need to hit the bookstore and/or Amazon?  How much extra should I plan on spending?  We have a pretty good used bookstore out here, so I'd like to start searching there if I can find a list of what I'll need.

Little Acorn includes everything, with Christopherus you will need to supplement some books and outside resources but it's not much, and I don't have experience with Enki.

Enki includes all the stories that you need, as does LAL.  I'm not sure about Christpherus, though.
