  1. This can change. Our district has gone back and forth all year on whether to stay all virtual or go hybrid. Right now we have K-3rd in and the rest on hold. I don't have a dog in the fight so don't care what they do really. It's a big mess. But...decisions made now are subject to change depending on so many things that no one can predict at the moment.
  2. I did the same thing when I lost my mom!
  3. I’m so sorry 😢😢😢!! DH and I are taking care of 3 elderly parents and are being really careful. In all honesty, I DO NOT think your giving him stuff caused him to get Covid!
  4. I’m so sorry your father, and your family, are going through this. Some interesting things going on with the elderly and the Pfizer vaccine in Norway. There are a lot of news sources so I just picked one. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-01-16/norway-vaccine-fatalities-among-people-75-and-older-rise-to-29 I think there is so much we don’t know 😔. I will be praying for your family.
  5. I just bought this. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0692916164/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I went this route because it had good recommendations and because College Board has the free practice test online. Mine are in 10th grade and we are just starting the process.
  6. We have an high school a few miles from us that has the AP Scholar specialty program. Our school boundaries were revised last year and this school will now be our base school starting next school year. Hoping this makes things easier for us. ETA: Removed quote as I included it by accident 🙂
  7. What a mess 😞 !!!! 2.5 more years of this crap and I am done! I'm glad I'm getting both of mine done at the same time at this point!!! One time through! Bonus of having twins 😁
  8. WOW!!! Mine are in the middle of 10th grade. We got one for Biology out of the way in August. Was planning on 2 more over the next few years. We were planning some CLEP, AP, and DE in there too, but will have to come up with another plan to substitute for the SAT2. It doesn't help that my boys don't have any idea where they might want to go to college yet 😬!
  9. Thank you for posting this for someone yet again 😁! Very helpful and much appreciated! I am only counting hours for courses we are coming up with on our own (photography, PE/health,etc.) and not for hours for most of their classes that I consider a full credit once completed or that are outsourced.
  10. No. But...if I did, I would pay for an extra day on the front end so the place was empty for at least a day before I arrived.
  11. Is it ok to spread hours for an elective over 2 school years? For example, the boys did photography last year for an elective. They have quite a few hours in from reading books on specific aspects of photography, watching a Creative Live course on photography, playing with the cameras, etc. They have spreadsheets tracking what they did, when, and how much time was spent on it. But...we didn't get out and do all the assignments I wanted to do specific to outings to various places to take pictures. Then Covid happened in March and that went by the wayside - was waiting to get out in nicer w
  12. I know I have it somewhere in one of the threads I'm following -- LOL. And...the search function isn't generating the info for me easily -- also LOL. Thanks so much!
  13. I think it's great that your dad is involved and is able to give his input into what would work best for him!
  14. I would too. If we had the land and had this option available.
  15. I also believe it could be IBS. Does she go regularly (no diarrhea)? Is she constipated at other times?
  16. Yes, I know that too!! Not an issue at the moment because our county just suspended all appts for the vaccine.
  17. Yes! This is what I was wanting to say, but didn't do a good job of it at all!
  18. My 94 year old FIL is chomping at the bit to get his. He is very frail and has had several major health events in recent years and is currently dealing with prostate cancer. I just don't have a good feeling about rushing into a vaccine. He and my MIL (also 94) are in their own home and me, DH, and my SIL are caring for them. He thinks he will get to go out and do whatever again. Well...not if me, DH, and SIL aren't vaccinated as well since we are around them so much. Such a hard situation to be in. I will keep an eye out for more information on this. Our state is running out of vac
  19. I agree with all of this, but my DD would trump everything else if this wasn't possible. I actually feel bad for OPs mom also - to be caught in the middle. I do understand grief. While I didn't lose a child, and I literally cannot even fathom the heartache in that situation, I did lose my mom very tragically. I have a dominate sister who decided we should not have anyone at the funeral but our small family and 2 relatives. My mom was very sweet and had a lot of friends that would have been excluded. We had to have an intervention (actually I did it because no one would stand up to he
  20. I believe dual enrollment at at the local community college. That is what I'm referring to when I say DE.
  21. The OPs DD is only 12. I still stand by my comment to have her back 150% over anything else in this situation. That would be my priority. I do understand how hard this whole situation is and I am really sorry for your family's loss!
  22. Thank you for posting this!!! One of my guys has been trying 2 face products prescribed by the dermatologist. While they have helped somewhat, his didn't clear up and it comes back pretty quickly if he/we miss a dose. And...we are applying it more often than prescribed because the prescribed amount wasn't doing much. I need to make another telemedicine appt with the derm this week. Has your daughter tried other things before going to the Accutane? Neither of my guys is good at swallowing pills, but my guy with acne is going to have scars (I think) if we don't get it under control.
  23. We might have had some good fun if you had posted last night 🤣!!!
