  1. We're using Rod and Staff, and it includes sections on sentence diagramming. We've been playing around with it, messing with some sentences from Harry Potter and other such games. Today, my 13yo stumped me with this sentence: "Why are there no horses?" I've looked all over, and I can't figure out what I'm supposed to do with the word "why". If you drop that out of the sentence, the diagram is a piece of cake. But I have no idea what to do with the sentence when it includes the why, and I've searched the internet, but can't find any of the sites that teach diagramming that deal with why
  2. Oh my. Haven't been in for a while, and then come by and find out they're putting you through this. I'm so sorry. I'm a bit late to the party, but I went and checked my threads, too.
  3. This. Yes, this exactly. Good grief, that's a lot of cash. Doing a bit of advertising to pay the bills seems long overdue, given the expense. Wow. Thank you. I had *no idea* what a gift you are giving the community when you provide this service.
  4. The other day my 2yo threw his spoon on the floor (yet again) and DH told him "Use your fingers. They won't fall off." Hero (6 this week) looked at him and said, "Leprosy?"
  5. I'm impressed! Tonight we had beans & rice for dinner, and my 5yo decided that the beans & rice are China, so he build a Great Wall around them (and over them and pretty much smothering them), and it defended the Chinese from the attacking Mongols, AKA sour cream. He wanted to have a huge Mongol army, but I was able to convince him that the Mongols are very powerful, and thus keep the portion size (relatively) reasonable.
  6. I'm so glad that it helped you!

  7. What a great post about praise! Thank you for sharing.
