We have used Easy Peasy but mostly as a "filler"; no experience with the other two. I am having a hard time decided what to use for this year too :( I'll have a 3rd and 1st and pre-k.

Thank you! What have you used in the past?

I went to Barnes and Noble and got books from there since I had a K and 1st this year. I haven't used a true curriculum yet.

I assume you're Catholic (hence the Seton)? Lol.

I've used pieces of Seton. Very solid, very traditional, very Catholic. If you're looking at boxed, and you're Catholic, them or Catholic Heritage are great for first time homeschoolers (lesson plans with their grade level packages) - Seton is accredited if you enroll in their full program (as is Kolbe and OLVS, so far as Catholic curricula goes).

I haven't tried Easy Peasy, but the general consensus amongst the few I've heard use it is that it's a great filler, but not really a full curricula.

No experience with complete curriculum.

I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff: we have traditional gender roles, we're Catholic, I'm Libertarian, he's Republican, we're both conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol).             Aimee

Thank you!
No actually I'm not. I heard about Seton and was looking at CompleteCurriculum when I made this post.
Was just looking for experience with each.
