  1. It's been a month since I last posted! Wow! Busy with our schoolwork and Fall yardwork, but I have been reading. My mom has been reading these "Asperger's Mysteries" by Copperman/Cohen, and suggested I might like them, since all three of my kids are ASD. She was right, I did enjoy them! 52.

  2. 45. "Math with Bad Drawings" by Ben Orlin. I've seen this recommended on the board several times, checked it out one other time before and never got to it -- bad library habit I have, -- and finally read it! I'm going to get my two high-schoolers to read it. 44. "The Number Devil" by Hans Magnus Enzensberger. Listened to a podcast where Kate Snow recommended this, and since my library happened to have it....! Can one say a math book is really cute? I've ordered my own copy. 43. "Insights from a Prophet's Life: Russall M Nelson" by Sheri Dew (LDS). 42. "Live Up to Our Privileges" by Wendy Ulrich (LDS). 41.

  3. We went three years ago. The Black Hills Railroad was a huge hit with my son, who was 13 when we went. It's the steepest non-cog railroad in the U.S. Very pretty views. There are two public parks in Rapid City we liked. One was the cheesy one on the hill with the concrete dinosaurs -- my kids especially liked the cheap hot dogs and ice cream cones in the gift shop there; the other was by the city buildings, I think. It was huge, with multiple playgrounds, including an inclusive section. Custer State Park for the animals -- prairie dogs and bison and many others. My youngest, who was six, liked the climbing wall in the visitor's center. The view from the Needles was impressive, but the narrow road was a little intense. At Mount Rushmore, the thing the kids liked most was a ranger-lead presentation on Native Americans. The plaza was over-crowded and claustrophobic, but once we started the hike, it was much better, since many people never leave the plaza area. The park fees are interesting: admission is free, but parking is $20. (But good for several days.)
  4. So, probably this order. Some of the classes overlap in content, it looks like, and some of the "fun" classes are more flexible. (I went in and read the description of each lecture for the Statistics classes. Two of the Statistics classes looked basic, so I moved them, and two were unclear, so they are still at the end with a little space.)

  5. So, accounting for Jackie's suggestions, and a few from DH, who told me that if they provide the formulas, you can take Statistics before Calculus, but if they make you derive them, you need to take it after.... I'm changing the order a little. Any other suggestions?

  6. Okay, Mathy people! I'm trying to make a list of the Math classes available on Great Courses Plus that lists the classes in a logical order of progression. I never took Geometry, or Statistics, or Probability, so I'm not sure the usual order they recommend. Straighten me out here! Maybe Geometry usually goes between Algebra I and Algebra II? I don't even know what Differential Equations are, so I have no idea where they go. What else?

  7. 41. "The Knowledge Gap: The Hidden Cause of America's Broken Education System -- And How to Fix It" by Natalie Wexler. This book was quoted on some newsfeed article I clicked on, and it looked interesting. I think she nailed the gist of the problem. She is clearly a fan of E.D. Hirsch's Core Knowledge, which is OK by me. I like it, too. Core Knowledge got me into homeschool, in a way. My mom and I discovered his books while I was still in college, and they got the idea in my head that school could be so much more than it was. Then I heard about this odd things called "charter schools," and that one of our local ones did Core Knowledge, and I decided when I had kids, I'd put them there. Then I found out how long the wait list was, and about the whole lottery system. So I thought, perhaps it was something we could add on at home. That whole shift in my thinking out of the box I knew prepared the ground, so to speak. After I married and we had kids, and were looking at what would fit our oldest, who was only 4, I said something to DH about maybe I could supplement math at home, and he said, "We could just homeschool," I was ready to hear that, so we did. Also, I think Hirsch's books were in the same section at our library as "Well-Trained Mind," and that's how I happened to first pick that up! 40. "Blood, Bullets, and Bones" by Bridget Heos/ Heard about this on a thread on the High School board. When I went to the library to find it, it was on display, so someone there likes it, too. This would be a great spine for my teens. I enjoyed it myself, and learned quite a lot. 39. "World War I: The Rest of the Story and How It Affects You Today" by Richard J. Maybury. I don't know if I agree with everything he says, but the idea that the whole war got started over alliances matches what I've heard before. 38. "The Thousand Year War in the Mideast: How It Affects You Today" by Richard J. Maybury. 37. "The Two Towers" by J.R.R. Tokien. The kids got so involved in the first one we listened to while traveling that we started listening at bedtime. All the bedrooms in our home are clustered together, so everyone just leaves his or her door open, and we have the blue tooth speaker in the hall. We listen until the first person falls asleep -- usually me. 36. "Fellowship of the Ring" by J.R.R. Tolkien. Listened while we were traveling last Spring, but I forgot to include it until I was getting ready to include the next one. 35. "The Clipper Ship Strategy" by Richard J. Maybury. 34. "The Money Mystery" by Richard J. Maybury. 33. "Evaluating Books: What Would Thomas Jefferson Think About This" by Richard J. Maybury. 32. "Ancient Rome: How It Affects You Today" by Richard J. Maybury. 31. "Are You Liberal? Conservative? or Confusted?" by Richard J. Maybury. Funny title, because I thought I knew what I was, but now I'm confused! 30. "Whatever Happened to Justice?" by Richard J. Maybury. 29. " The Instant Economist: Everything You Need to Know About How the Economy Works" by Timothy Taylor. 28. "White Like Her: My Family's Story of Race and Racial Passing" by Gail Lukasik. 27. "Personal, Career, and Financial Security" by Richard J. Maybury. 26. "Rascal" by Sterling North. 25. "Whatever Happened to Penny Candy?" by Richard J. Maybury. 24. "Joy in the Covenant" by Julie B. Beck. (LDS) 23. "The Essential 55" by Ron Clark. 22. "How to Tutor Your Own Child" by Marina Koestler Ruben. 21. "Faith is Not Blind" by Bruce and Marie Hafen. (LDS) 20. "Silent Souls Weeping: Depression, Sharing Stories, Finding Hope" by Jane Clayson Johnson. (LDS) 19. "Leap of Faith" by Bob Bennett. (LDS) 18. "Covenant Keepers" by Wendy Watson Nelson. (LDS) 17.

  8. Me, too! Three that leave me bawling like a baby because of the circumstances when they became meaningful to me are: How Firm a Foundation Come, Thou Fount If the Way Be Full of Trial
  9. "Give Your Child the World" by Jamie Martin is really good. She suggests books for kids age 4-12.
  10. I'm finding the Uncle Eric books very interesting, but I can see the slant in them. I'd love to read some things from the opposite viewpoint if there are any written as clearly. My library has the whole set, so I'm thinking about using them with my oldest two, because his explanations are easy to get, but I'd want to keep it balanced. DS16, especially, has a hard time seeing that issues can have two sides. 35. "The Clipper Ship Strategy" by Richard J. Maybury. 34. "The Money Mystery" by Richard J. Maybury. 33. "Evaluating Books: What Would Thomas Jefferson Think About This" by Richard J. Maybury. 32. "Ancient Rome: How It Affects You Today" by Richard J. Maybury. 31. "Are You Liberal?

  11. Couple of more from my massive "due soon at the library" pile: 29. " The Instant Economist: Everything You Need to Know About How the Economy Works" by Timothy Taylor. The publisher is Great Courses, and the author is the professor featured in several of their courses. It seems like a really good introduction on a 101 level, though I found microeconomics much clearer than macroeconomics. 28. "White Like Her: My Family's Story of Race and Racial Passing" by Gail Lukasik. Fascinating read about the author's mother and other family members who "passed" as white for the better opportunities it offered. I had heard of this phenomena somewhere, but this is the first account of it I've read. I was also interested in the genealogical research the author did to track down her story. 27. "Personal, Career, and Financial Security" by Richard J. Maybury. 26. "Rascal" by Sterling North. 25. "Whatever Happened to Penny Candy?" by Richard J. Maybury. 24. "Joy in the Covenant" by Julie B. Beck. (LDS) 23. "The Essential 55" by Ron Clark. 22. "How to Tutor Your Own Child" by Marina Koestler Ruben. 21. "Faith is Not Blind" by Bruce and Marie Hafen. (LDS) 20. "Silent Souls Weeping: Depression, Sharing Stories, Finding Hope" by Jane Clayson Johnson. (LDS) 19. "Leap of Faith" by Bob Bennett. (LDS) 18. "Covenant Keepers" by Wendy Watson Nelson. (LDS) 17. "Manga Classics: MacBeth" adapted by Crystal S. Chan. 16. "One Dead Spy" by Nathan Hale. 15. "Stellar Science Projects About Earth's Sky" and "Wild Science Projects About Earth's Weather" by Robert Gardner. 14. "Stuff Matters" by Mark Miodownik. 13. "Led by Divine Design" by Ronald A.

  12. Dry erase markers for the windows, and a challenge to draw and write mirror image so it can be read from outside... ... with appropriate guidelines for each child. (I have to remind one "nothing rude or crude," and another that the markers are permanent if they get on the upholstery.)
  13. Hey, wait! 27 on week 27 means I caught up! (I don't really worry about that. I participate so that I have a searchable record of what I've read, to stay motivated in my own reading, and to see what other people are enjoying.) 27. "Personal, Career, and Financial Security" by Richard J. Maybury. I don't know if his model is a model I would advise my kids to follow, necessarily, but I like the idea of teaching that we can understand the world based on models. I think DS16, with his Aspie thinking, could grasp the ideas of cognitive dissonance and paradigm shifts by reading this. 26. "Rascal" by Sterling North. I read a description of this book on a "don't let your kids read this" list, and had to give it a try! Now DD9 and I are listening to the audio version, so obviously I disagree with the list author. 25. "Whatever Happened to Penny Candy?" by Richard J. Maybury. Saw this on the shelf at the library while looking for something else, and recognized the title as one that was mentioned on the High School Board. I don't know enough about economics to know whether I share his bias or not, but I appreciate how easy to understand his explanation is. 24. "Joy in the Covenant" by Julie B. Beck. (LDS) 23. "The Essential 55" by Ron Clark. 22. "How to Tutor Your Own Child" by Marina Koestler Ruben. 21. "Faith is Not Blind" by Bruce and Marie Hafen. (LDS) 20. "Silent Souls Weeping: Depression, Sharing Stories, Finding Hope" by Jane Clayson Johnson. (LDS) 19. "Leap of Faith" by Bob Bennett. (LDS) 18. "Covenant Keepers" by Wendy Watson Nelson. (LDS) 17.

  14. Based on what I see most often doing genealogy, this would be the standard. It's unusual to put a woman's maiden name on the stone, and most often, her current legal surname is the one used. (You can put all the names and relationships on Findagrave.) However, if it is a shared stone with the first husband, then I've seen the wife's given name just added to that, as though the later marriages had never taken place. (It's probably the cheapest and easiest option, and looks the most balanced and aesthetically pleasing, considering the format of that type of stone.) You could use the format they chose for my great-aunt. She was a war widow who remarried, and they left off her middle name and maiden name, and put her first name, first married name, and last married name on the stone. She's not buried with either of them. The first husband is in the American Cemetery in the Phillipines, where he was killed, and she had divorced the second husband. (All of her children were with her first husband.) In the end, you can put whatever you care to pay for.
  15. Sadder than realizing that I haven't posted here since April is realizing how little I've read since April 😮. Somehow, I always think Summer is going to be less busy, but really it's just busy without the benefit of a predictable schedule, 23. "The Essential 55" by Ron Clark. A few of his rules are pretty specific to the classroom setting, but the vast majority are really just good, basic social skills everyone ought to know. 22. "How to Tutor Your Own Child: Boost Grades and Inspire a Lifelong Love of Learning--Without Paying for a Profesional Tutor" by Marina Koestler Ruben. Mostly familiar ideas, since she draws a lot on popular homeschool resources, but I picked out a few things that I hadn't thought of that I think could be helpful. 21. "Faith is Not Blind" by Bruce and Marie Hafen. (LDS) 20. "Silent Souls Weeping: Depression, Sharing Stories, Finding Hope" by Jane Clayson Johnson. (LDS) 19. "Leap of Faith" by Bob Bennett. (LDS) 18.
