  1. I have never been, but I hear they have a children's menu, and advertise as a "family restaurant".
  2. I loved both of those books as a kid about that age. You might also check into: Animal Farm Bridge to Teribithia Ender's Game Island of the Blue Dolphins The Ear, the Eye and the Arm The Whipping Boy Maniac Magee Number the Stars From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler Chronicles of Narnia The Hobbit Of course, you will want to review these to make sure they are appropriate for your child. Soem of the subject matter may be a bit too mature, as well as some of the writing. :)
  3. My girls are 4 and nearly 3...So one for six year olds may be a little tough, but I don't think it would be too bad. I don't mind cartoony illustrations too much at this age. If it keeps them interested in the stories, then I think it is a good thing.
  4. Thanks everyone! What is the deal about the artwork? A couple of you mentioned it...also no pictures of Jesus...what is the reasoning there? Also, a reformed slant is fine, or one that just is factual with no slant (however possible that may be.) Do you mind sharing how the ones that have been mentioned treat the Noah story? Most that I have seen in person lean toward a Everyone on Earth was bad, except Noah, so God saved Noah. as a opposed to Everyone on Earth was bad, including Noah, but God saved Noah because of His grace. Thanks!
  5. I am looking for a good, theologically accurate children's Bible, or Bible storybook. It would need to be on a Pre-K to 1st grade type level... One that has been suggested to me, and looks pretty good is http://www.amazon.com/Jesus-Storybook-Bible-Deluxe-Lloyd-Jones/dp/0310718783/ref=pd_bxgy_b_img_b Wondering if anyone else knew of any good ones?
  6. Well, it came up the other day. We told her we were pregnant (due in July), and pretty much the first thing she asked is if it would interfere with our homeschooling dd4. DW explained it wouldn't affect our choice, since we were leaning toward having dd4 go to ps anyway. Where did all these worms come from?
  7. There are several homeschooling groups here, but it's not the friend thing. She actually has met a lot of friends thanks to the internet!
  8. Thanks everyone for all the responses! My MILs feelings aren't affecting our decision, we just don't know how to let her know if we decided to do PS without hurting her feelings too much.
  9. Hi, this is my first post here, so I will start by introducing my family. We are currently a military family of 4 - dd4, dd2, wifey, and myself all living in Hawaii. We are trying to decide what to do with dd4 next fall. My wife was homeschooled her entire life, but isn't sure that she is up to the task of teaching dd4 (will be 5 then) with a toddler around (and possibly a newborn at the time). She doesn't feel confident in her ability to teach dd, and give the other one the attention she needs. The school dd would go to is one of the better ones around, and there is also a Public Charter School that we are thinking about trying to get her into. My biggest thing is that I want someone teaching my daughter who is passionate about teaching. Whether that is Mom, or a teacher at a PS doesn't really matter to me at her age. If she does end up going to PS, I intend to supplement that at home. My wife always thought she would HS, and her mother assumes she will. Every time my wife brings up the possibility of letting dd go to a PS, she is very clearly disapproving. My wife and her mom have always been close, and now we have moved thousands of miles away (which was hard on them both). My wife is afraid of alienating her mother if she chooses to have dd go to PS. We are leaning about 65-70% towards sending her to one of the PS, especially if she gets into the charter school. Any suggestions on what to do here? If we do decide she won't be exclusively hs, any ideas on how to tell my MIL?
