Thanks for sharing your thoughts on Enki, Blissful Bee! I will be ordering the complete K package this week! I'm so excited. I was going to wait and try and purchase K and first together (to save money in the long run), but just don't have the funds for that anytime in the future, so I decided to just start with K and go from there. I'm anxious to start reading through the guides now so that I'll be ready come fall.
I've spent much time reading on the enki site and searching for opinions from those that have used it. I'm convinced!
And just for a cost comparison for anyone interested, here is what I spent on K level stuff before deciding to switch to Enki:
Christopherus K guide, $27.50
Christopherus Science guide, $38
Christopherus Joyful Movement, $22
Christopherus Drawing w/ 4-11, $22
Christopherus Curriculum Overview, $50
You are Your Child's First Teacher, $10 (used)
Folk and Fairy Tale books, $15 (used)
Fingerplay books, $5 (used)
Seasonal and craft books, $30
Storytelling book, $8 (used)
Golden beetle books K stories, homeschool guide, movement guide (for more stories and to gain a richer understanding of Waldorf concepts and curriculum), $84
Total: $311.50 plus all the numerous shipping charges because all of this was obtained from many different sources. Also, I still don't feel like I have everything I need. If not switching to enki, I would probably need to buy some more songbooks and/or CDs and some more books on pedagogy and such.
So while I can't say it definitively, because I don't own enki yet, but it seems to me like it is fairly priced and worth the money. Also it took me a long time to put together all the resources that I did after reading the Christopherus guides, plus time hunting for books at the library. So it appears that enki would save time as well, because everything is right there.
That said, I do appreciate my Christopherus stuff, and will likely hang on to it for future reference (and am even considering attending one of Donna's conferences just because there is one in August that isn't too far from home), but knowing what I know now, I wish I had just started with Enki. It would have saved me time, I think, and cost about the same.
And of course there is also the fact that I'm just drawn to enki. It speaks very deeply to me and feels like a good match for my family.
Okay, wow, when did this post get so long and windy? Whew, time for some green tea....
