      It used to be easy and quick. With the format change, not so much, in my experience.

  7. Just wanted to say how much I dislike the college waiting, rejection, acceptance game.

  8. We do use a vocabulary curriculum, but DD already knows the words even at the high school level. It just becomes busy work. DD is not a big reader either. We have used: Wordly Wise, Vocabulary Workshop, and Vocabulary from Classical Roots. My current plan for 7th grade is to go through our box of SAT vocabulary cards. I like words and use them when I speak with DD and define the words as I speak so she understands the definition in context.
  9. Our local K-8 school is very small. Less than 50 kids total. Everyone knows each other. My first son went to 5th grade at this local school, and my second son went to 7th & 8th grade at the same school. For these two young men, the local high school was a disaster socially. Homeschooling had/has a bad reputation in my community. Teachers and others feel homeschooling inferior to public school, and those in the community that homeschooled in the past set a poor example of academic excellence. The school also bemoaned loss of revenue. As much as I requested to be involved or offered help at our K-8 school, my requests were met with polite smiles and a "No thank-you." Curiously, my son's 8th grade teacher though he was the best educated homeschool student she taught. He could write and connect historical events with current events better than her other students. However, this son was not good at the housekeeping of school--handing in work that followed the rubric of expectation for a given project. Overall, I've found no openness to what a homeschool parent may have to offer a classroom, teacher, or school. Yet, now that my oldest daughter has applied to top ranked colleges and will likely go to one of these colleges, folks in my small community are realizing that homeschooling is not always a negative. In a community where few graduate from high school without going to a continuation/alternative high school and where even fewer go to community college and beyond, a homeschooled child getting into college is an anomaly. It just might change the way people think about homeschooling. Neither of my daughters have attended public school because of our experiences with the K-8 and high school social issues.
  10. DD did an EF Tour to Costa Rica with a high school group. No problems.
  11. I deeply resist looking too far into the future. It is so easy to bound on ahead with plans, curriculum selection, etc. Yet in the moment, I find that we need to go over that chapter in science again because the notes DD took on her reading were too superficial, and if she were to continue taking notes this way, she would undoubtedly meet with failure in the future. I am always reminded of piano practice: Go slow in order to go fast. Laying a good foundation of learning how to learn rather than obsessing about the next step is what I remind myself when I get the urge to plan or get bored with the daily pace of school.
  12. Digital Detox in motion-When was the last time you unplugged from the internet grind of incessant communication? Maybe it's time to take a break from the screen and enjoy life in real time.
