I'm beginning to relax more now that we're actually DOING high school. In fact when I get overwhelmed one thing I do is pull out the Texas Education Agency's list of graduation requirements. There just isn't that much to it!
Using AO and CM methods goes far beyond that list. I also know that academics are really the easy part of homeschooling. A book and a curious child take care of that. It's all the character building and relationship building in between that shapes our children into adults who serve well the kingdom.
