  1. Dd14 is doing very well with the Writing With Skill series (part way through Level 2). I am wondering from those who have completed all 3 levels if Level 3 introduces enough new material that it is worth continuing on with the series? From what I can see of the table of contents, it appears that it does. But I am trying to make decisions for next year and so am gathering facts with which to make a decision.
  2. Here is a blog by a young writer that some of your kids might enjoy. http://theinkloft.blogspot.com/2015/11/i-return-to-blogosphere-with-gifts.html
  3. I emailed and asked her about the change and she said itw as because of the lack of ad revenue.
  4. I'm getting a threat detected warning when I am reading this thread. Wonder if they imbedded something in the spam posts.
  5. It sounds to me like this former mentor is misunderstanding what a mentoring relationship really is, especially with someone who is becoming a young adult. Mentoring is about walking through life with someone sharing in the joys and sorrows and the victories and challenges bringing encouragement through it all. It isn't about looking for every opportunity to bring correction.
  6. Thanks for the heads up. Off to send her a message on why the change was made.
  7. Decided on going with Elements and Carbon Chemistry with some biographies and other books thrown in. http://www.ellenjmchenry.com/
  8. Several times I thought I was going hyperthyroid when I had an increased dose. Finally figured out it was my adrenals trying to adjust.
  9. My actual thyroid hormones (T3 / T4) are optimal when my TSH is around 0.5. A TSH of 7 is usually WAY low thyroid. I don't liked taking meds but thyroid replacement is one that I know makes a big difference. Having my T3 in the top 1/3 of the reference range is when I do best. Lower normal I have hypo symptoms. The other thing you will want to do is find out what is causing the low thyroid and if you have thyroid antibodies at all. Also, make sure they test your actual thyroid hormones, not just the pituitary TSH! And do your own research on how the thyroid works. There is MUCH misinformation out there even in the medical community. You must be your own advocate. http://hypothyroidmom.com/10-nutrient-deficiencies-every-thyroid-patient-should-have-checked/ http://hypothyroidmom.com/300-hypothyroidism-symptoms-yes-really/
  10. This. And it it will NEVER go against Scripture.
  11. I don't think I would use LoE for just spelling. It works well all together. Although LoE Foundations is way cool of a program! Much more appealing than Essentials. :)
