  1. I would love to go on a thru-hike of the AT or any other long trail, for that matter. I've hiked a good bit over the last several years, recently hiking up to the tea houses at Lake Louise and King's Throne as well. There is something so centering and peaceful about hiking, and I have grown to love the time spent doing it. A book I really enjoyed reading about the AT, and have reread recently is, Becoming Odyssa, by Jennifer Pharr Davis. If you can find it at the library, I highly recommend it. There is a forum specifically for those planning a thru-hike (whiteblaze.net), so maybe
  2. Sorry to bring up this topic so late, but I had a couple of ideas to add. Have you looked at The Boy Who Sailed Around the World Alone by Robin Graham? This is the young person's version of the book, Dove. One more thing I had in mind was anything by Jacques Cousteau. I have one of his books, The Silent World. Oh, a couple of more things..... * Our Living World of Nature, Life of the Ocean * The JASON Project
  3. I think it can be hard to *get* KISS at first, but sticking with it will have payoffs. As for Peter Pan, we loved the audiobook version read by Jim Dale. Completely captivating! If all else fails, give that version a try.
  4. That looks yummy! Thanks for the recipe. I have a new box of fresh mushrooms, so I'll have to try that one in the next day or so.
  5. Would you share your recipe, please? I have been wanting to make a vegan vegetable pot pie, and this one sounds wonderful.
  6. Where have the elementary SMSG texts gone? The link is no longer working for me. Anyone know?
  7. I had read about the books here on WTM board, and recently found the Starcatchers volume at the thrift store. I was delighted with the find, so I'll be on the lookout for the other volumes. I need to look for the titles and order.
  8. Oh my goodness! You've all mentioned so many great titles! I'll have to expand my list of read-alouds for the year. We're starting out our year with Peter and the Starcatchers. So far, we love it.
  9. I like to halve them, then cut into slices. To this I add sliced onions, red, yellow and green bell peppers, and tomato. I put all of the sliced veggies in a bowl, then drizzle with a little olive oil and shake on some McCormick's Garlic and Herb Salt Free seasoning, a bit of ground pepper and sea or kosher salt. I heat up a cast iron skillet grill, then add the veggies and cook until they are softening. Serve this: * over pasta with a bit of sun-dried tomato pesto * on a sandwich (ciabatta rolls are nice) with hummus and kalamata olives * on top of a salad * over
  10. I'm making the grilled buffalo millet sandwich from the veganricha blog here, and homemade sweet potato (baked) fries. For dessert, we're having Luna and Larry's Salted Cream and Chocolate Coconut Bluss frozen dessert served with sliced strawberries. Yum!
  11. Would it be feasible to take a waffle iron (assuming you already have one, that is)? We love to have waffles for supper, and that would be something quick to mix together. It wouldn't take long to cook some sausage or bacon to go with this. You could take some add-ins to make it fun, like chocolate chips, pecans, banana, etc. We have made chicken and dumplings in the crock pot in the past. I think we left the chicken cooking in the crock pot. When we returned, I turned the heat to high, and added a can of cheap biscuits for the dumplings. Turned out great and everyone enjoyed it.
  12. Warriner's Grammar and Composition First or Second Course I think the answer keys can be found at Seton or a few other places for around $8.
  13. :iagree: Colleen said brilliantly what I would have posted here. I always try to listen to those around here who have BTDT, and I find that it really helps my perspective on things. 8 here has so much more experience than I have with homeschooling, and I tend to think of her as my Yoda. She sees what is at the end of the road, while I'm way back at the "2,986 miles to What Comes Next City" sign on the foot trail. Back to the topic at hand..... Yes, I do read out loud and talk, discuss and otherwise teach from books.
  14. :grouphug: I would ask if thyroid testing has been done, and at least ask your OB if it could be looked into as a possibility. Do you have any family history of thyroid problems?
