Ambleside Online Year 7 36-week Schedule

This year I am taking on a new challenge of home educating my daughter's 2 other friends. I have had numerous talks with her mother about this, what it looks like and entails and how differnt home education is from the public school education they know receive. For our school year my daughter found this complete free online program that is based on Charlotte Masons education style that she wants to try for at least the first 1/2 of the year. So this is what our summer will start off looking like.
