  1. These links are exactly what I was looking for. The bottom line for me: It depends on your students interest. If you student is a history nut, then by all means you can include 'extra' social studies courses (above and beyond the required credit amounts). But if your student has different interests then combining the history courses to meet the basic requirements will free up 'credits' for other interests or rabbit holes! 🙂 This is great! I'm going to try and make some more time to spend on the message board as you all seem so supportive! Thanks!
  2. Thanks Lori! I am new and still getting used to looking around. I have lots to catch up on. Thanks for the pointers! 🙂
  3. Hi all! I'm doing some planning for High School and LOVE the idea of breaking the 4 high school years into the 4 categories of World History. How do you account for that on transcripts that require 'American History'? Do you just fudge it, knowing that 'American History' comes into one of the categories? And then would 'American Government (or Civics' be a separate 1/2 credit course? Or do you go more traditional in Highschool: 1 year of American History, 2 years of World History, and 1 year of Government/Civics/Current Events? (I'm pretty sure this is what I did in the 1980's when I was a kid....) THANKS! Kristi
  4. My husband photographs and makes lists of everything we give away. Our taxes are complicated and we do itemize.
  5. I have a vegetarian kid that has a super sensitive palate. He would eat noodles for every meal if we let him. Sadly at 12 he is now testing with a high triglyceride levels. It was 3 weeks after Halloween, so I've wondered if it could be the temporary candy infusion. I'm working with him to add whole grains to his diet. He does eat vegetables and fruits, just not mixed into anything. Soup? Burrito? no way. Today we made a list of his meals he likes to eat with white flour noodles limited to once a day!
  6. Hello friends! My son is finishing up his elementary school years at a small private school. Next year 2019-2020, we are going to start homeschooling. He will be in 7th grade. I've been reading and researching lots of different things and seems like a Classical Education approach for us will be a good fit. I look forward to connecting with you all as we embark on this journey! Kristi
