  1. Subbing. We're starting voyage next year too. I'm probably not going to do a main writing program next year, we're having an alternative year sort of. I'll have more creative writing and poetry. Will just do some writing across the curriculum, WTM outlining style and voyage. I have cw Homer on the shelf too for after that, possibly...
  2. My DD is in 6th next year. Most everything is up in the air... I am planning a journal project which will cover science and... Probably poetry and creative writing. I'm thinking some philosophy (homeschool adventure co) and logic (fallacy detective?) Probably MCT voyage stuff, though we'll be finishing C1E part 2. I really like the look of RFWP's Latin and I think DD will too. Finishing waring's RRR for history, middle ages, and possibly plague pbl from RFWP. Spelling will likely be spelling by sound and structure. Maths, plan to finish LoF pre-a series, have a run through Beast Academy 5 when it's out and probably Jousting Armadillos. But I dunno really. Dd and I need to talk it over and I'll have a planning week early Jan...
  3. That picture is awful. That poor woman. I wouldn't want anyone open carrying. It doesn't happen here. Only police officers carry.
  4. The one I'm thinking of, I think they really have rewritten it in their minds. They also are ruled by their emotions, so if it feels true in the then & now (like, if they believe that you deliberately slighted them) then it is true and any response is totally justified, because FEELINGS. Apparently. And I was so used to it that I'd forget facts and just go along with it. Dh has many times pointed out 'hang on, didn't you do x?' Oh yeah... She conveniently omits that part.
  5. Thanks abba! I could've sworn I checked bd...
  6. Thanks for this! I've been eyeing it off for dd. Now to find a way to purchase it and ship it to aus...
  7. Just feeling emotionally battered. Visited my sister after her first chemo treatment. Ambushed by my mother while there, we haven't spoken in 3 years. Fighting with my husband. I don't know if we are going to make it. So much laundry to fold, I just want to cry.
  8. I'm continuing my piano studies. Hope to complete another exam next year and then get my teaching certificate. I just downloaded a great courses course, 'the art of reading' to listen to in the evenings while I clean up. Just generally working my way through some books, some homeschooling related, some for fun.
  9. See, I found MCT very systematic actually. I was always naturally good at LA thanks to being a big reader, but had basically zero grammar instruction. My DD, the only child I've used it with thus far, isn't gifted or 'other' at all, a very average but bright student. We so enjoyed MCT island and so far through Town. I guess, I just think it is beautiful and effective. I didn't find it difficult to teach at all. Aren't they fairly responsive on their forums? I have a vague recollection of questions being answered there...
  10. Husband isn't home yet and our toddler is going through an 'only wants daddy/mum is chopped liver' phase. Except at 3am, then she's handy for cuddles... After I spent an hour awake at 2am due to an awful creepy nightmare. What am I? 4 years old?
  11. I love the look of this too... I'll probably cave and add it when I do another RFWP order next year-ish.
  12. I've read many of these hoa threads and I still can't get my head around it! No line drying... Cannot even imagine. Do they pay your electricity bill? Most people around here don't own a dryer!
  13. Such sad news, my deepest condolences to her family. She was one of those posters you watched for...
  14. We're taking some time this year, maybe half a term or so, to mess around with math. I'm going to go through some books I have like Life of Fred, Borac math book, Time Travel Math, family math and math art. Maybe some other puzzle type books. During this time I want to start a math journal with both my older kids and slowly start to introduce the next level of Singapore with the textbook and working in their journal. I'd like to go through some other living maths books like Anno's, Sir Cumference, Youth Math etc. and journal about them. Mostly, I'm doing this to fill in the time until Beast Academy 4B is released! Shipping is too expensive to Australia to buy one quarter of a level at a time!
