  1. We went there when she was 3 or 4. DH went to graduate school at Michigan Tech. We now live in Southern Wisconsin. But going to the geology museum at UW Madison would be a great idea!
  2. My rising senior would like to take Mineralogy as her science next year. Any ideas? She found a few texts on Amazon that she thought looked interesting, but any ideas would be helpful. Thanks!
  3. I'm looking for an online Spanish 4 class for my rising senior. Any recommendations? She has used the Avancemos series with Kolbe Academy for the last three years so that would be ideal, but we are open to all ideas. Thanks!
  4. So thankful that we went through finding a place to take AP tests last year. We are able to use the same school as last year (not our school district but another local one).
  5. These were the same classes that I took the first semester of my sophomore year as a biochemistry major (though the research was just doing organic chemistry research with a professor 6+ hours a week). I spent a lot of time studying, but it was doable. It was definitely my hardest year in college!
  6. DD wants to prepare for the AP English Language and Composition test this year, but does not want another online course. What materials would you recommend? Thanks!
  7. We have the rest of dd's subjects decided, but not what materials we'll be using. She will be taking the three classes at Kolbe Academy (AP Calculus, AP Biology, and Spanish III). She wants to prep at home for the AP English Language and Composition exam, but not take an online class. Government & Ecomonics, 1 semester each Drawing & Painting, 1 semester each Religion 11
  8. We're still working on planning for my 11th grader. So far we know: AP Calculus AB: Kolbe Academy Online AP Biology: Kolbe Academy Online Spanish III: Kolbe Academy Online Probably American History, either a one year course, or the first half of a two year course Possibly Government English 11, though no idea what we will be using Art, but not sure what we will be using At least one more elective
  9. My oldest dd is taking AP courses and would be taking DE, too, if we lived closer to a college. These classes are a good fit for her. I'm guessing that most of my other kids won't take them.
  10. I'll have 4 kids using AAS next year. They each do their own level. I usually do level one 4 days a week, but the other levels we only use 2 days a week, completing half of the lesson each day. I've never tried combining them, but they all started level 1 in kindergarten or first grade.
  11. My 9th grader will take a 0.5 credit government course next year alongside the first half of American history. I haven't planned for my 11th grader yet. She'll take it either next year or in 12th. She'll also take American history at some point during the next two years.
  12. She has not. I had not even thought of these. How much of the books cover internal anatomy?
  13. My upcoming 7th grader will be studying life science next year. She is less interested in the insides of animals and more interested in the outside, especially animal behavior, habitats, etc. (No dissections here!) Any ideas for resources? Note: She'll probably use at least part of a life science text, but I would like to include more about animals in a way that interests her. She is considering a career with animals, though not a veterinarian. Something more like a zoo keeper, dog trainer, boarding horses, etc.
  14. My dad was around that age when he got his current job. He had retired from 30+ years at a paper mill (had worked his way up and had been a superintendent for the last 10+ years) a few months earlier. That job was stressful and had very long hours. At his new job, he is only doing the part of his old job that he loved the most. He now works for Focus on Energy and helps paper mills save energy and money. A lot of people at his job are older, I think partly because it receives its funding each year and offers no insurance. He is just happy to be doing something that he loves and making so
  15. My 5yo loves the online lessons and worksheets from Progressive Phonics. He also really likes the letter and word dry erase cards from Usborne.
