  1. Thanks, everyone! We canceled the trip and have rescheduled one a little closer that doesn't require a plane ride. Planning to keep activities outdoors as much as possible. 🙂
  2. Just curious how many of you have canceled fall vacations because of everything going on right now? We have a trip out West in September that has been planned for a while. I don't know whether to cancel or go. Everything is outdoors except for a 4 hour plane ride there and back. Both parents vaccinated, 2 teens not vaccinated yet (masking). Thanks for any advice! :)
  3. This is not a troll thread. I just got some unkind responses and decided to delete my original post. This is why I rarely post. I appreciate all advice received. Hope that everyone has a blessed day! 🙂
  4. Have any of your college/graduated children gotten a degree in family and consumer science? My daughter is thinking of doing that. We were wondering what types of careers that might cover. Thanks for any advice that you can give. Blessings!
  5. kand-Thanks! Did the teacher give you a hard time about switching over to the recorded class?
  6. Have any of you ever done this with any of your children before? How did it go? My high school child has been in a live online class for a couple of months now and I just feel like the recorded pace would be better for him. He has done great in his other online classes. This one particular subject, though, is not going well for him as a live class. In a recorded option, it would be the same teacher lecturing/grading, just at a slower pace. Thanks for any feedback you can give! 🙂
  7. JoyKM- I could have written your post! We are in the exact situation that you are in except that we are halfway across the country from all of our old friends. No family here either. I love your solution! Thanks so much for sharing!
  8. I hope that I have put this question in the right spot as it does pertain to homeschooling. So sorry if I didn't. We're about to begin our 12th year of homeschooling. I only joined Facebook in the first place because a homeschool social group we were in decided to use it to coordinate events. We have moved out of state and are no longer in the group. I am currently in 2 homeschool Facebook groups for information only ("It's Not That Hard to Homeschool High School" and a local county group), but would love to leave Facebook altogether. Just curious if any of you successfully homeschool without it? For those that do, do you have any tips for me? Especially on social things. If it helps, I have an upcoming 11th grader and 9th grader. Thanks so much!
  9. Thanks so much for your input, everyone! I think that we will be taking off from outside events as well this first semester and will reevaluate again at Christmas. ☺️
  10. Just wanted to get some opinions on the coming school year. It seems like a lot of homeschool groups (co-ops, tutorials, and social groups) are LOOSELY planning to be open this fall. What are your thoughts on this? If they are, do you feel comfortable taking your children or are you planning to skip this year? As far as co-ops and tutorials go, my kids (high school) don't want to start and then possibly be interrupted if things shut down again and have to switch gears (in person to online) again. They seem to want to just do it all online this year. And, we could possibly plan some outside teen events (like meet-ups at the park), but then you have to worry about everyone's opinions on whether or not they should wear masks or how far apart everyone should be. That just seems to take the fun out, not to mention possibly causing some disagreements. I can't make up my mind. I keep going back and forth. One day it seems like a good idea to lay low this school year and the next day I think it is worth all of the work (social distancing, masks, hand sanitizer) to make it happen. I'm kind of in the middle on this. Just not sure what to do. What do you think?
