  1. I am soooo frustrated.:banghead: I need a history curriculum for my ds who'll be in 6th Grade. Ds enjoys reading. However, he does not want to read ALL day long. We have tried SL in the past, and both of us were exhaused at the end of the day. My son LOVES history, but prefers a nice mix of hands-on, map work, research, and writing. I'd prefer a program that keeps English and History as two separate entities and is secular in nature (or at least can be secularized). I have looked at Tapestry of Grace, Trisms, and History Odyssey. As of right now, I really like the look of History Odyssey. Do you think this would be a great choice for ds 11? Boy, I can't believe I'm having such a hard time to come up with a history program we ALL can agree on. BTW, we are using SWI-B this year for writing.


    Now, I'm all :bigear: to see what the hive has to say!!!:D

  2. The PO does not always refund your money - eventhough, you BOUGHT insurance. I sold a hs curriculum, bought insurance from the PO and the content of the box disappeared. I went to the PO, showed them proof of shipment and insurance. Since the items were "used" they required photos of the books/curriculum sent. Furthermore, they insisted that I find similar curricula with pictures and prices to show that my insurance was not TOO high. After all I went through, I was told that I should have filed earlier. Again, I showed them the paperwork I received from the PO earlier with the date I was supposed to file my claim. Still, they refused to refund my money. I fought with the PO for almost 6 months to receive a refund. All I received from them was the media mail shipping. So, I lost $150.00 for the curriculum PLUS the books since I had to pay a refund to the buyer. What did I learn from this?????? If you don't ship with UPS - insurance does not automatically mean refund of your money.


    Done with my runt for today. Just had to share this little episode to show that insurance does not always means refund!!:tongue_smilie:

  3. :grouphug::grouphug::grouphug: So glad someone could help your ds. My mom suffers from chronic Lime disease - it's terrible to see and watch. As of right now, none of the treatments have shown the improvement (healthwise) we were looking for. It is almost 7 years since this dreadful day, and I wish I just could turn the clock back. Many of your son's symptoms can be seen in my mom (not the behavioral ones - but the others). She is suffering from so many different ailments at this time - I can't even list them all. What really irritates is the way doctors treat her. One doctor even told her to see a psychiatrist - since her complaints are non-sustained (what ever this means).:banghead:


    Enough of my rant - I'm just so happy your ds is finally getting better.
