  1. 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!

    Something like Engrade: A record-keeping tool we use at our co-op

    Bumping back up...
  3. Thanks, ladies. I'll take a look. What do you like about Canvas? How do you use it? Does anyone use Google Classroom?
  4. 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.

  8. 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.

    Shopping for the softest bath towel ever...

    Ty, klmama! I'll check them out. Happy Thanksgiving, all! 🙂

    Shopping for the softest bath towel ever...

    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.

    Shopping for the softest bath towel ever...

    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!

    Boy Scout Merit Badges for High School Credit

    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! ?
  13. Has anyone done this? My ds is close to getting his Eagle Scout award, and after accomplishing so many merit badges, I was just wondering how I might use them for high school credit. If not for credit, have you documented them another way on your student's transcript? I think I have read about this on the forums, but when I searched, I didn't find anything to help with my question. If someone could link related topics, I would appreciate that as well. Thanks, ladies!
  14. I have an ink jet printer, and I would like to print a few transparencies to help at school. I would also like a few to simply write on with a vis-a-vis pen. Can I buy the inkjet transparencies for both purposes? I know with one kind that Amazon sells, a purchaser commented that the actual film became sort of gooey when she tried to clean it with water. What is up with that? I'm just not sure what to buy. I know that you can purchase write-on transparency film too, but I don't want to buy both. They are just too expensive. Also, the write-on film cannot go through a printer at all. Can anyone tell me what I need to buy?
