  1. Hi Kelly, A teacher at the co-op where I teach showed me this one: https://awwapp.com/ I think it probably works very well for most people. I tried it with my English class and had trouble with it. The difference, I think, was that I tried using it from home. We have satellite internet, and somehow, I think that influenced how it worked. When I first tried it, it did work. It was wonderful. I never confirmed what the problem really was. Give it a try.
  2. He is risen indeed! 2 Corinthians 5:21 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. So grateful that we serve such a holy God who gave His greatest gift, Jesus, who paid the ultimate sacrifice to purchase our salvation and to restore fellowship with Himself. What wondrous love is this, O my soul! He is alive!
  3. I am really enjoying Joy Dawson's books. She is a 93ish year old woman who served as a missionary with her husband of 65 years with Youth With A Mission. Probably her most well-known book is Intimate Friendship with God. I have also read and enjoyed Ruined for the Ordinary. She has other titles too, and I hope to read them all over time. Joy's heart in all of her writing is focused on glorifying the Lord and helping others to come to know Him. These are works of nonfiction, and they have the potential to deepen your relationship with Jesus. I can highly recommend them.
  4. Thank you so much for replying, LJPPKGFGSC. I will pass on all of the suggestions, and hopefully we'll find something to use next year. Thanks, all!
  5. Thanks, ladies. I'll take a look. What do you like about Canvas? How do you use it? Does anyone use Google Classroom?
  6. I work at our local homeschool co-op, and for several years now, we have been using Engrade to keep grades and attendance records for our students. We can also email through Engrade and keep a record of correspondence between teachers, parents, and students. Engrade is part of McGraw Hill, and they are not offering this service anymore beginning next year, so my co-op has to find something to take its place. So far, all that has been researched is proving to be very expensive compared to Engrade. Parents only pay $7/student currently, but all the record-keeping programs our director has research runs into the thousands of dollars- way over our budget. I believe that we are trying to target around $300/month overall, but truly, cost is very much a factor. We need to keep the cost as low as possible. I thought I would ask all of you very wonderful, knowledgeable ladies if you could make any recommendations. I know we've checked Blackboard, but I don't remember any other names. We are trying to get something lined up to begin using for the next school year (2019-2020). Thanks for any help! PS... Cross-posting on the other boards.

  10. I have only heard a little about Trim Healthy Mama, but I am giving it consideration. I would like to lose a few pounds (10 +/-) that is associated with natural aging. Exercising and portion moderation has not helped at all, so I think my next step is to begin limiting sugar and getting on a more intentional plan that helps with good nutrition. This is the plan that I think I would like to try, but I need to be mindful of sodium intake. On average, I probably consume less than 1000mg of sodium/day, and I use Himalayan salt. Have any of you used Trim Healthy Mama? Can you tell me if the recipies can be adjusted to be low sodium friendly? I understand the new Trim Healthy Table would be the best book of the series for a newbie to buy.
  11. Ty, klmama! I'll check them out. Happy Thanksgiving, all! 🙂
  12. Thanks so much, ladies! I am not a Cosco member. I think I can go into the store to look at the towels, but I'll need to find a Cosco member friend if I decide to buy them. Wonder if they are running some kind of special during this time of year to draw in new customers.....That would be convenient.
  13. This may be a silly question, but I need to find this for my dad for Christmas. If you have run across an especially soft bath towel, please tell me about it. He wants a white one in a regular bath size- not anything extra large. He tried the ones from LL Bean, but that apparently wasn't soft enough. Thanks for any help!
  14. Lori and mom2scouts, thank you so much for replying. I agree that Eagle Scout is enough to stand alone. I appreciate your wisdom regarding if merit badges should/could be counted as part of high school credit. I am very proud of ds for pursuing Eagle Scout. This is truly an exciting time! Thanks again! ?
