  1. After 9 years of homeschooling, I'm throwing in my hat (for now) and enrolling my 5 school-age kids into a really good charter school next year. At this point I feel like they will get a better education there than what I am able to give them. We'll see! I'm sad and excited.

  2. I start nursing school on February 1st. My first pair of scrubs arrived today. Size medium! And they weren't even tight!

  3. I joined this board when my oldest was a year and a half old. I now have four kids and the youngest is a year and a half old, and we are doing our first year of “official” homeschool thanks to the pandemic. I feel prepared-ish and like I’ll be able to muddle through with help. Thanks all!

  4. Just a quick update since I've mentioned my morning sickness in so many places. I finally got my meds so I will be eating, drinking and sleeping better, but chronically foggy headed so please excuse the typoes. 😁

  5. What I am most looking forward to about tomorrow is NOT being told to go vote. Or how to vote. Or what my vote means. Or how lucky I am to vote. I'm over it. I voted a week ago, leave me alone.

  6. When my kid is on a stage, if he doesn't pick his nose it's a victory. He might be disassembling the microphone, but at least no fingers up the nose.

  7. I’m going to do something rare for me. In light of the pandemic and the ever greater greater importance of staying connected, I’m going to open up my social media accts. If anyone wants to follow/friend or whatever it’s called. PM me for my info. I’m 98% of FB bc my other accts are fairly new but I do have Instagram, Snapchat, and twitter too.

  10. Just mailed DD's Governor's School application for this summer. Now, we wait. (The deadline isn't until December 5, so it will take months to get a yes or no back-but it feels good to have it DONE. And good practice for college applications.)

  11. I love that we are a board where a mom posts a newborn picture just a few hours after birth. How sweet to be a part of a place where people know they are so loved, and want to share such a sweet moment!

  13. Yesterday, I submitted our education plans for next school year, for the first year we've had to do so, and they were already approved! What a relief to get such a major stress off my shoulders!

  16. Hi Lori. I know I haven't been around for a while. Kids are grown, and I have moved into a career I am thoroughly enjoying. However, with HSing popping up in the news, I thought I would visit to see what you all are up to. I did a couple of searches and eventually landed on a comment you made during a discussion of the Hobbit back in January. I dug around on an old hard-drives and actually found those videos. I watched them this morning and can't thank you enough for mentioning them. Happy Times to be sure! Hope you and yours are doing well! Thank you, Janice Enjoy you

  17. Hi BlsdMama, Can I just be nosy and ask: What did you end up doing with your kitchen cabinets way back when? I think you'd started a thread about the possibility of repainting / refinishing? Sometimes I see your profile pic pop up and I wonder what you decided to do about the cabinets... Searched for the thread -- couldn't find it... But I'm curious! It seemed like a huge job to tackle and I've wondered if you decided to DIY it?

  23. Please keep DD’s cheer team in your thoughts this weekend. They are going into their last competition of the season, and one of their primary bases broke her arm yesterday, so they have to completely rework much of the routine. They’ll be working tonight, and then most of the team will be immediately leaving to drive to Destin.

  24. Hey! Would you delete your quote from my post? I'm going to address this situation in my usual way and don't want it to get any nastier than possible.

  27. Proud of myself-I am a nervous driver, especially for interstate driving and unfamiliar places. Today, I drove DD to visit a college an hour and a half away-in a place I'd never driven, and interstates all the way. ?

  30. Hi Lori, We have been doing school for about two weeks. I continue to be so grateful for the help you gave me. History is so much more enjoyable and I also feel like we are both learning. I just ordered four of the Kids Discover Magazines which you listed as a resource. I think he will enjoy reading these on his own. We have enjoyed re-watching some of the Great Courses Ancient History & Decisive Battles lectures with Gregory S. Aldrete. We love him :) Thanks Again! Paula
