Review: Time4Learning Online Kindergarten Math Program

My kids adore online learning activities.  They see Mommy and Daddy work all day on their computers (we both work from home), so naturally they enjoy doing their own 'work' on the computer.  For phonics/reading skills, I've been very happy with a combination of Starfall (free), PBSKidsPlay, and Reading Eggs, but I'm struggling to find an online kindergarten-level homeschool math curriculum that is going to work for us.  I was very excited to have the opportunity to review Time4Learning for 30 days in exchange for my honest opinion. Time4Learning is an online program that includes both reading and math, but I focused on the math side, since that is where our current needs are.  Unfortunately, we discovered that this tool just wasn't for us.  I'd still like to include a full review to give other parents more information about how I made my decision...
