  1. Please at least have her checked by a doctor. Two years ago, my friend's ds9 had swollen lymph nodes in his neck that would get better for a bit and then get worse again. I think this went on for about a year, and he was under a doctor's care during this time. Unfortunately, he had thyroid cancer. Sometimes, it is something serious.
  2. Thanks everyone. This post was from last year. Hopefully, others will benefit from your suggestions.
  3. Molly at Apple Support called here about 5 times yesterday and 3 times today - so far - to tell me I have a breach on my icloud account. I'm not using an icloud account. It's an irritating recording and a complete scam. I just want her to stop bothering me.
  4. We've ordered wooden bunk beds, wooden bar stools, and rugs. It was a good experience every time.
  5. My ds had the extra science section at the end, too.
  6. My ds just got home. He didn't have much to say about it. They had one 10 min break, and then they had a few minutes before the essay as others were turning in their tests. The second one was a stay in your seat not walk around break. He's glad to be free of thinking about it until the scores are released.
  7. My ds is taking it for the first time. He's a bit anxious, but then again, so am I!
  8. The workbook was assigned, and she was expected to self-check it. I mainly checked to see that my dd was doing it. The quizzes and tests were online. I think they were given 2 tries on the quizzes, and the scores were averaged. We did not have to scan and turn anything in. I did not do the recitation with her. There were no additional assignments that I can remember.
  9. My dd did Third Form Latin with Meredith Cutrer. She really liked her as a teacher and did well in the class. We had planned to do the Fourth Form class with her but did not sign up in time. My dd refused to take Fourth Form with any other teacher! I could not keep up with going over the new information with my dd towards the end of Second Form, so that is why I put her in the online class. The online class moves quickly, but it got her through the book. I wasn't really involved other than checking her grades weekly to make sure she was doing assignments and doing ok on the quizzes.
  10. I like to post in these threads and then check back later to see how much I changed from my original plan. Algebra 2 - probably Larson Intermediate Algebra Great Conversations 3 - WHA Spanish 2 - WHA Physics - planning on Clover Creek Some other writing - no idea yet Elective of some sort at our co-op
  11. We were hoping for Thomas Hummel for Rhetoric I also. I don't care to sign up for classes without hearing good reviews anymore. Good luck finding a writing course.
  12. We always get a refund. This year, we will owe $2000-3,000. We definitely fall in the category of those not benefiting from the tax changes. It such a puzzle to figure this out.
  13. My ds17 is currently taking the A&P class at WTMA. He says Biology is helpful but thinks you could take the class without having had it previously. He spends 4-8 hours per week depending on how much studying he does. It's a flipped classroom approach. There are videos to watch before each class with a pre-lecture question to answer. There is a weekly quiz and discussion board posts. The exams can be a bit gruelling. They are given 3-4 hours to take them, and they take my son at least 2-3 hours to finish. He is doing well in the class but doesn't like it because of the exams.
  14. I've gotten through 3 closets in the past few days and I have 1 more to go before visiting Goodwill. It feels great!
  15. We're thinking about a family trip to Yellowstone in August. If we go, we will meet my sister and her family there.
  16. This is me pretty much every night about 2:00 am. No matter what I do, I can't shut it off. With 6 kids, I think this is going to be going on for awhile. I'm getting used to always feeling tired. Big kids, big problems.
  17. We have had so many issues with OnTrac delivery with amazon packages. My favorite one was when they threw our package over the neighbor's fence into the corner of their yard. The neighbor never noticed it, but somehow one of our kids did. It had been there for over a week. This is the kind of service I have come to expect from them, and I cringe every time I see that they are the ones delivering one of my packages. I know this post is of no help. I just felt compelled to share.😂
  18. We're feeling the same way about my ds16's class. He wants to be able to ask questions in class and receive a live explanation. He's frustrated with the discussion board. He informed me that he'll never take another online class with this format. I agree with you that the teacher should be setting aside some time in class to go over problems.
  19. We don't get ToTers where we live, so we have to go to a nearby neighborhood. I was amazed at how many people had gone all out on their decorating and the amount of people that were out last night. It was a good time and the weather was a bit chilly - which is very rare but was awesome. It wasn't an organized thing in the neighborhood, but I'd like to figure out how to donate some candy somehow next year.
  20. I wish you strength for the battle ahead. So sorry that you are facing this!
  21. Yes, the Iliad has been the focus of our conversations this past couple of weeks! I'm trying to keep up with her so we can discuss as she's reading/writing.The time commitment has been an adjustment for her. I've had to keep reminding her that the reason it is taking so much time is that this class is the equivalent of 2 classes.
