  1. Rosie, you are one person I would LOVE to meet IRL! :)
  2. 5' 8" size 9.5 (or 40) shoes. Pre kids, I wore an 8.5.
  3. Thank you. Is that it? :lurk5:
  4. Can you list all the complete "box" curricula available? My friend is a humanist and doesn't want to have to filter through books to see if they are secular. This is her first year and she's a little nervous. Grades 2, 3 and 5, if that matters. I've told her about Oak Meadow, but she would like to look at others. :)
  5. After Labor Day. Probably the second week of September. I want to wait until all the school kids are back in so we can enjoy the zoo and parks without them. :)
  6. I've used both and if you compare apples to apples, Sonlight is hugely expensive. Sonlight Core A (Kindergarten) $733.98 (complete) Oak Meadow K $385 (complete with craft kit and K-3rd manuals) Heart of Dakota LHFHG $242.37 My Father's World K $338. Living Books Curriculum Kindergarten $499 I think any *complete* curricula you purchase will have sticker shock, but it is a bargain basement price compared to any private school.
  7. Well, to homeschool one child for less than $300 a year, that seems like a bargain to me. There is a lot more in the Syllabus than just the schedule in the younger grades. Even though there are separate fairy tale books and craft books, the majority of the stories and ideas are actually in the Syllabus. In fact, you could easily just buy the Syllabus for the younger grades and use Grimm's Fairy Tales or Lang's, and Burgess and Clara Dillingham Pierson Animal books (all free online or at your library) for K through 2nd grade. Add knitting and an instrument, and there you go. I think i
  8. Thank you for the ledger recommendation, I will check that out. :) My computer availability is spotty. I don't have access to one every day, sometimes only once a week or so (I share a laptop with my sister -- long story). I would like some way to keep up with paper, if possible. If we purchase a computer and I can sit down and learn, I agree with you, I should learn to use a program like Quicken.
  9. I didn't really need the receipts, but you never know. :) I was wondering about a notebook or a binder. An envelope is less bulky and it can fit in my purse. I don't think I can manage the cash thing, so I was trying to find a way to keep track and still use checks or a debit card.
  10. We have created a new budget. Whew. We are now looking for ways to record everything we spend to try and stay on track. I am not interested in software, only paper. I can barely come here, let alone try to learn to use software for the first time. :blushing: What do you paper lovers do?
  11. Kck sounds fun. It will be interesting to see how this church compares.
