    We love your Lenten Season plans! I purchased these last year – 2017 and I am still referring to them this 2018 year. The music chosen is lovely and we just play it throughout our entire morning or when we are doing Art. Your resources are so well done and we look forward to more. Thank you!

    I bought the Lenten plans after doing the Advent plans (and absolutely LOVING them), and was so excited to begin these plans this Lenten season. Unfortunately, we really aren’t able to fully do these plans unless I wanted to spend quite a bit more money. Many of the books that are mentioned aren’t available at any nearby libraries (and I live in a metroplex and have cards at 3 different large libraries). I also didn’t realize that most of the art plans and all of the nature plans aren’t available without purchasing additional books (This may have been something I should have realized from the preview, but if so I overlooked it :/)
    We are doing the songs, picture studies, and memory verses since those all are fully available. We are doing just a few of the poems since many are more aligned with the nature study that we don’t own/have access to plans without the additional purchase. I don’t like leaving a negative review because I truly do believe these plans would be awesome – *if* you’re planning on making additional purchases – but without the additional purchases I regret the purchase and wish I had known I should be prepared to spend more ahead of time.
    *I know that it’s suggested you can substitute your own books on similar topics, but since I purchased the plans so I wouldn’t have to seek out my own resources, to me that defeats the purpose of the ease of the plans.

      I wanted to amend my previous comment – we actually stopped doing the plans entirely by around week 4 of Lent – we just weren’t getting enough out of them so we found another resource. As a digital product, I completely understand not being able to return it, but if it were possible to return/get a refund, I would. (Again, this review is based on the fact that I only paid for the plans and not the additional products the plans are dependent upon.)
