  7. :iagree:I'm a little late chiming in, but if you get stuck on the TT again, I highly recommend Algebra Relief at www.mathrelief.com. There is a sample video on their website that I had my son watch and he immediately said that it helped him understand better. I bought the program and he is loving it. This son has always been slow at everything and I was beginning to wonder if he would ever catch on to algebra (we used TT, too). Mr. Firebaugh, the instructor, explains each concept very clearly and that are lots of practice problems. Each lesson builds on the one before it - very, very increment
  8. Oh, wow, Chris, he looks wonderful! He looks happy, too. I'm shedding tears of joy for you.:grouphug:
  9. I saw Dustin Hoffman in Death of a Salesman at the Kennedy Center back in the 80s. It was amazing to see him on stage - much more impressive up close, although I've always thought of him as being an outstanding actor. I also saw Yul Brynner in The King and I at the National Theater in D.C. in the 70s. We were not near the stage, so it was kind of like watching him in the movie version - didn't really affect my opinion of him one way or another.
  10. Somebody's always living with Ginger!:D Isn't she a sweetie?? Hope to see you soon!
  11. I've lived here 22 years and I've never gotten used to it, lol. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stafford,_VA http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Census-designated_place Are you actually located in Stafford County? You might want to sign up for Stafford Alerts - they are email, text message, etc. alerts sent out when there is a traffic, weather, police, or other important incident to report. https://staffordalert.com/index.php?CCheck=1 I appreciate knowing before I head out the door whether or not I-95 is backed up due to another accident. Also, for news/weather/traffic info, WTOP 10
  12. It means North Stafford County. Stafford is just a county - there is no official town - it's kind of weird. I'm not sure why it's that way either. But there are folks in that yahoo group in Prince William and Spotsylvania counties as well - probably some others as well. It's really just a means of getting info out about stuff going on in and around Stafford County. Wow, there were a lot of prepositions in that sentence. :-P
  13. There is a yahoo group for North Stafford Homeschoolers - no religious affiliation that I know of. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/North-Stafford-MOMS/
  14. When my oldest were in high school (and now with Ds16), I found a textbook approach much more doable than the kinds of curriculum that required everyone work together or which required a lot of discussion on my part. My kids preferred that as well. The only two texts I've used consistently through the years were Notgrass World and American histories. Everything else I changed up to suit the student at the time or because something better came on the market. The thing I and they liked about a textbook approach was that they could plan it themselves, execute it themselves, and check it off each
