Curriculum decisions again . . .

Now that all three of our kids are of 'schooling' age, we are re-evaluating which curriculum would be best for us.
The two we keep coming back to are 'Tapestry of Grace' and 'My Father's World'. Has anyone used either one with multiple children? We prefer a classical curriculum, have done the 4 year rotation for history, our oldest is due to begin year 5 (Creation to the Fall of Rome, again) . . .
We are also trying to decide between Singapore Math and Saxon for our oldest. He is a more visual learner and I've heard Singapore would be great for that . . .
I appreciate any input on any of these curriculums, or if you have a favorite you'd like to share. Our kids are in Grades 4/5, 1/2, Pre/K (depending on the subjects ).
A messy house and happy children . . . I choose to spend my days playing!

It's always difficult to figure out exactly what would be the "perfect" curriculum for my kids. We've settled on using AOP's line of products and it works pretty well for all 4. We have been using a mix of Horizons (WONDERFUL math and penmanship), LifePacs and Switched-on Schoolhouse.

In the past we have used Mystery of History, a little Saxon math (BLECK!), Abeka to learn to read (before I found Horizons!) and Apologia. I'm sure there are more I'm not remembering. After all, I've been schooling 4 over the course of 11 years now. LOL!

When we used different things my girls would like it for a bit and then requested we go back to AOP's line of products. I've found them to be very thorough and the girls like the fact they can pretty well work on their own without waiting for me to finish with another child.
