  1. Oh that's good to know - still pondering the workbook. I'll probably decide after we see the book. I like the idea of the Udemy course, so I really appreciate your idea. And the advice about the price! Cheers, Penny
  2. Perfect - thank you SO much! One Wheelocks book will be on its way shortly.... Penny 🙂
  3. Quick Question... Does she need the workbook? If so does it have the answers included in it? I read upthread that I can email the publisher for the answer key - is that for the book or the workbook? I appreciate your suggestion for this program, and the online resource (which I am wondering if maybe that takes the place of the workbook? If so, does *that* have answers?) - it looks just right! Thanks again - Penny
  4. Thanks everyone! Wheelocks sounds good and I will be tracking that down! Enjoy your summers! Penny :)
  5. Good morning! My daughter will be a senior next year and would like to finish up with a year of latin. She has had an introduction and has done three years of French. She is fairly adept at languages, and loves all things classical. One of the reasons she wants to do some more latin is because she is narrowing down her goals and is pretty sure classical studies will be a minor or major for her. An introductory program would probably be best, but not something like Getting Started with Latin. She has done that and is capable of quite a bit more. Is there anything like a college intro level program? Maybe a Memoria Press program? I haven't looked at Latin is a long time, so I'm in the dark about what's out there. She has also done a year of Greek, which she loved. A program or books studied at home are much preferred over online resources (unless its something like a Teaching Textbooks style program). She does not want to take the class outside of home as she works a lot and it would be hard to schedule. All help gratefully appreciated, and thank you so much! I can't believe this is my last legit year to read these boards. I've been here since 2003, and could not have done this without SWB and everyone else! Thanks again, Penny
  6. I'm in the same boat but with my knees (and I'm 10 years older than you are!). I'd love to hear recommendations as well - and good luck at your appointment!
  7. Hooray! I'm so glad for all of them! Wishing Mr. SWB a complete and speedy recovery among his loved ones. 🙂 Merry Christmas!
  8. Hoping for a quick and complete recovery for Mr. B and sending hugs to you and all of yours.
  9. (((hugs))) Right there with ya. I so appreciate reading all of these replies. Thank you for your original post, although i'm sorry you had a need to post it.
  10. That is beautiful. Congratulations to all of you and best of luck in your futures! Thank you for sharing.

  12. We used a passport. You can fill out a passport form online and you don't have to show a SS card to get one (although you need to write in the number). Then you can use the passport as ID. I actually did just this for myself last summer as I had lost my SS card. Good luck!!!
  13. We use the high school levels of EIW and there is no "magic" change from the levels. From what you describe I think she will be fine with level 11. ( 9 and 10 have some grammar, but it's very basic. Good luck! Penny
  14. Ohhhhh, I didn't realize that about the Shi book - I thought is was more like SOTW. Rats. I made the mistake of not using the SWB high school series (which I own, which makes it really silly that I didn't) and I am kicking myself because this daughter would enjoy history that way. She just finished world history through Oak Meadow (which was fine, but meh) and she really wants "living books"... hmmm...... must think... I'll look at American Odyssey - thanks for the tip! I will also check Abebooks - that's a great idea. Might find a whole host of yummy history books! oboy!! :) Thanks for your replies! Penny
