Episode #1: Starting in the Middle

"I currently have a seventh grade daughter (13) that I am seriously considering bringing home from public school. I feel very strongly that the Center For Lit approach is exactly what she is needing. However, I am overwhelmed with the thought of starting all of this with a seventh grader. Is this even possible? Where in the world should I start? I homeschool our twin kindergarteners, and somehow starting from the beginning seems much easier. Thank you so much!"  -Stephani
