Wow. When the review copy of TruthQuest History Middle Ages guide landed in my email, that was my first reaction, and still, I’m in awe. I think we’ve been blessed with *our* history… and I wish I’d found it several years ago.
Actually, I should say, I wish I’d really SEEN it for what it was. I’d heard of it. I’d hazzard a guess that many of us have. But I’d never really looked inside the covers and lived with it… and that’s what it took to fall in love.

Latin. When I think Latin and education, the first thing that pops into my head is the movie Dead Poets Society. Expensive private school students chanting in Latin.
Not something I’d be inclined to replicate in our home.
There ARE good reasons to learn Latin. Many of our English words have Latin roots, and it’s especially valuable for those that delve into science or medicine. For learning foreign languages, especially Spanish, French, Italian… there are enough similarities in grammar and vocabulary to give a HUGE jumpstart.
But… fancy private school, we are not.
