      1. Hi, Margaret and Elsie–we didn’t want to put that up because it is JUST a sample and should be customized/changed by every family to suit maturity, interests, etc. Putting it up makes it look as though it’s the ONLY way to do things, particularly for web readers who haven’t read the book and don’t understand the overall philosophy. Hope that makes sense. You are, of course, welcome to photocopy it–just be sure to mark it up (and change it up!).
