  1. This whole situation makes me sick. I feel bad for Anna and her kids. I'm shocked Josh still has access to his kids even with her supervision. I hope she has the courage to leave him and he spends a very long time in prison.
  2. Time Left: 11 days and 15 hours

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    History of US by Joy Hakim. 11 books plus reading schedule and tests in 3 ring binder. $75 plus shipping. Prefer paypal. I used these books with Sonlight Core 100 TM. This is over $170 new.


  3. Has anyone used the Apologia Biology Instructional DVD? How good is it? Is it worth the price?
  4. Black Stallion series Black Beaty series Smokey the Cowhorse Books by Margarite Henry: Justin Morgan Had a Horse, King of the Wind, Misty of Chincoteague series, Album of Horses, White Stallions of Lipizza National Velvet My Friend, Flicka For lighter/easier readers Billy and Blaze books (my boys loved reading these books in early elementary)
  5. I use my China, which was my mom's, for Thanksgiving and Christmas and put it in the dishwasher on gentle/China cycle. I like the above poster's, PinkTulip, idea of having the loud people do the dishes and the rest of you eat dessert in the other room!
  6. My mac n cheese recipe is pretty basic, but my kids love it. Preheat oven 350 F. Boil 1 lb macaroni noodles, drain then put in 13x9 cake pan. In a separate pot on the stove, melt one stick of butter, and about 1 lb of shredded cheese (I like to mix cheddar, Colby jack, Monterey jack or pepper jack, and sometimes add in cubed American cheese if I have some). Then add 2 cups milk. Cook in pot till hot and bubbly mixing often. Pour cheese mixture over noodles. Mix. Bake in 350 oven for 20 minutes. Enjoy!
  7. Each of my boys is different. Oldest ds21 can still be rude but is better. He was a challenge all through his teen years. Ds19 was a breeze to parent and wish all my boys were like him. Ds17 can be very sweet at times and very obnoxious other times, ds14 is more like ds19, so I'm happy for that. When my teen boys were giving me attitude or acting crazy, I gave them physical exercise for an attitude adjustment; push ups, sit ups, jumping jacks, running a few laps around the house, running up and down the steps a few times. It worked!
  8. I have used Keys to... as a supplement when a child was struggling with fractions. It was very helpful. I continued to use MUS at the time.
  9. We had snow on Wed. that stuck to the ground a while, but it is now melted.
  10. WI homeschool laws are pretty relaxed. I don't know of homeschool groups in the Milwaukee area, but there probably are some. I grew up in West Allis, a Milwaukee suburb. It was a nice place to grow up, but I haven't lived there in a long time. I found this website about WI Homeschool laws. https://homeschooling-wpa.org/2016/07/13/wisconsin-homeschool-law/ And list of homeschool groups in different areas of WI https://homeschooling-wpa.org/2016/07/13/ask-a-homeschooler/ https://www.thehomeschoolmom.com/homeschooling-in-wisconsin/homeschool-organizations-support-groups/ Make sure you all have warm jackets, boots, snowpants, hats, mittens and scarves.
  11. We have used MUS from K to Pre-calculus. I have two kids in college and MUS prepared them well for college. I love MUS and wish I was taught math the way Steve Demme of MUS teaches math. I would not say MUS is light at all. My kids love math and have done well in math. I highly recommend it.
  12. We have two dogs and two guinea pigs. The dogs pretty much ignore the piggies. The cage has a top on it. I'm not sure I would have piggies if I had a cat. I would leave the piggies in a separate bedroom with the door closed if we did have a cat. I suppose each animal is different with different personalities.
