  1. My oldest homeschooled through high school and just finished his freshman year of college. My other two wanted to play team sports and in my state, in order to do that, you have to attend the public school. My youngest will be going to high school this fall for that very reason. I wish our state allowed home school students to participate in pubic school activities, but they don't.

    Pros & cons of a small polytechnic U vs big state U

    Son and I tackled this very question last year. My son is majoring in computer science/software engineer. He was accepted into a big school, over 40,000 students, 2 schools with student bodies around 15,000 and 1 school with 2300 students. He went with the smallest school. He liked the small class size and teachers able to bond with students individually. He is back now from his freshman year and I asked if he had any regrets choosing the small school and he said no. The personal attention came to fruition and he did really well.

    WWYD? Grade label?

    I would do it. Two out of three of my boys have late birthdays. I held both back for social reasons at different times. It worked for the best. Boys, in general, tend to mature slower, so you really can't go wrong here. I would keep it low key.

    I guess we see why they call it "Blistex" :(

    I had this same reaction to a lip balm with SPF protection. I use Carmex and have for the past 20 years. It may sting a bit at first but that's because of the camphor in it. It works for me.

    Anyone taking all of next week off?

    Yes!!!! I need it more that my ds. :001_smile: And I only have my youngest (older one is freshman in college, middle one is sophomore at the high school), but man am I tired.
  8. My ds did Excellence in Literature for 9th and 10th grade. He then did PA Homeschoolers AP English and Composition 11th grade year and AP Literature in 12th.

    Computer programming classes?

    AoPS offers introduction and intermediate python. My son did these before dual enrolling in a college CS class, and he felt prepared.

    Ok so what is with this clown hysteria?

    Yep. A clown was spotted twice in our area within the last few days. My younger son is taking better precautions when he goes out to always be with someone. Crazy.

    What the heck can I eat now?

    Thanks all for the understanding, hugs and suggestions. I'm looking forward to feeling better, because my migraines are pretty bad and the vertigo episodes are just plain scary. I just need to refocus my energy, again, on my diet. I had it all figured out and it was smooth sailing with eating gluten free, and now I've got to figure it all out again, on a budget. That's the most difficult part. Plain and simple: my family is picky and will not eat what I have to eat. And yeah, I was in tears last night, but now I just need to go shopping.

    What the heck can I eat now?

    Thanks for the suggestions. My diet is just getting very bland, especially when I'm the only one that has to eat this way and all those "trigger" foods are in.my.kitchen. :thumbdown:

    What the heck can I eat now?

    So few years ago, I was diagnosed with a gluten sensitivity. I now eat gluten free with great results. I also suffer from Migraine Associated Vertigo (MAV), diagnosed yesterday. Well, now I have another list of foods to avoid. It got me pretty down and it feels like all I can eat is rice, potatoes, meat and apples. Plus, I was trying to go low carb. Things I was eating that were gluten free, but now have to avoid: all nuts and seeds citrus fruit bananas, figs, raisins yogurt balsamic vinegar canned salmon and tuna chocolate, caffeine canned soups beans aged cheeses artificial sweeteners I need help. I feeling really defeated. Going out to eat seems pointless. :confused1: :sad:

But, he is also interested in engineering/computer science so here are some of the schools we looked at: Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology (which he is attending) RIT Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering Harvey Mudd Cooper Union Carnegie Mellon Stevens Institute of Technology University of Maryland Ohio State All of these schools have excellent engineering programs, so hopefully this list is helpful has you begin your journey.
