  1. My dd hs'ed until grade 4.5. She is doing fine in a little catholic school now and we supplement with Saxon Math after school and in the summer. Her spelling and handwriting is not improving like I would like. I'm looking at Spelling You See American Spirit to supplement with this summer but would love any advice. She's a good but not great reader and I'd say her spelling and handwriting is very poor for a rising 6th grader. Any programs you guys recommend? Thank you!!! Amanda
  2. I am at a complete loss- there is a tween girl that I'd like to take shopping for first bras and fun clothes that fit but she is much bigger than your average 10 year old but not curvy or developed. She is quite stout but not extremely chunky. The 12-14 size at target is long enough but on the snug side. Where do I go? I do not want anything that says husky or something like that. Please help! Thanks!!!!!!

    Upcoming change to the boards...please read!

    I loooove this forum!!!! The advertising angle seems reasonable to me.
  6. Wow! My experience has been identical to the op! I was hopeful that the experience would prove worth the time and money. It hasn't. We'll finish the year but no way will I do it again. I could do everything on our own, in a fraction of the time. If you like the idea of it, I recommend buying the curriculum and doing it at home. Maybe even just start with listening to the history timeline song on youtube everyday. The memoria press curriculum we use has plenty of memory work. This is overkill.
