    How's the school year going for everyone?

    I love that stage too! Watching them crack the code and then realizing they can use It all the time is kind of magical. 🙂

    Torchlight Level 2! Who is with me?

    I am glad to see someone else doing this. I have both SOTW and Usborne, I was hoping to just use Usborne and maybe our Horrible Histories books. (I still have to see if the series covers the same topics as level 2. I mostly bought it for the schedule so that I didn't have to plan and my kids were on track. I really like the lit primer and he Bard writing component. We were going to do Partnership Writing, but I may save it for next year.

    How's the school year going for everyone?

    We love poetry tea time here too. It's such a nice reset for the week.
  4. We are still on a slow start. DH is traveling a lot this month so I haven't had a lot of time to really get things going aside from keeping everyone fed and being a taxi. I am feeling like I want to try either BYL or Torchlight with my youngers. I'm working part time, we just moved, I have lots more excuses but I'll spare you, but I am feeling like I don't want so much busy work for myself planning. I think my kids would do well to get school done and then have time to be creative/ get into kid trouble on their own. Anyone switching things up yet? What's working well and what have you scrapped/switched/tweaked beyond recognition?

    Following TWTM with an AL

    Yes, we don't use Peace Hill Press because we are secular, so I wasn't entering that conversation. 🙂
  6. I think there was a thread like this years back, but I couldn't find it. I'm wondering, if you follow TWTM, and have an accelerated learner, what did that look like for you? I've found the stages do not represent my AL well, but the resources have mostly been great. (When I can find a secular resource at the correct level!) Just curious how many posters here are following TWTM, and what that looks like in your homeschool.
  7. Astronomy for All Ages is great!
  8. This looks good! Thank you.
  9. This is incredibly helpful, thank you so much for taking the time to respond!
  10. Finally finished Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine. It was completely fine. lol I have mixed feelings! Starting Farrar's book today! I have 2 poetry books to finish and also The Body Keeps the Score. That one is a tough read, but very good.

    Ummmm...what was the cupcake kerfuffle?

    I LOVED that troll! The kids names were the best.

    Book a Week 2018 - BW34: The First Jasmines

    If I finish my 2 books on vacation, then I only need 2 a week. Ok, I can do this!!! (I've been trying for 5 or 6 years, I have to make it this year!)

    Book a Week 2018 - BW34: The First Jasmines

    Oh my goodness, I've been afraid to find this thread for weeks because I didn't want to see how behind I was. I guess moving and starting a new job is not conducive to lofty reading goals. I still weirdly feel like I can catch up. I just need to give up Homeland and The Office at night 😂 I did just finish Murakami's What I Talk About When I Talk About Running. I liked it. I don't think a non-runner would like it. That was only my 14th book of the year. I'm TWENTY behind. 😰 I better stay off of here and get reading. (I do have 2 that are close to done!)

    What's everyone reading at the moment?

    DS 11 is reading the LOTR trilogy for his G3 class DS8 is plowing through Fat Cat Garfield books DD8 is stuck in a Junie B Jones phase, but she's reading and that's all I care about I just finished Murakami's What I Talk About When I Talk About Running and I'm almost done with The Body Keeps the Score. I'm in the middle of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine
  15. Its actually a radiator cover so I know I can’t keep that stuff there long term 😬 the shades are woven, not pleated, and thankfully came with the house because window treatments are not my forte!
