  1. I use a Nathan hydration belt. 2 8 oz. water bottles, pouch and key pocket. Love it.... Used it on runs up to 18 miles.
  2. Well, we've made it through another year of homeschool. This marked my 20th year: Getting ready for our next term... And figured I'd pop in and see how everyone was... What's new in the curriculum world.... And get the plans rolling! Happy Spring! ~~Faithe
  3. Thanks!!! I was trying to explain that to the kiddoes! I like that Dr. Wile presents both views and the issues with both views AND what his personal bias is. I'll definitely check out this Nova! Thanks again!
  4. We are completing Module 8 of Apologia Gen Science and my son would like to read a uniformitarians evidence against ( or explaining) catastrophism. Does such a resource exist?? Thanks, Faithe
  5. Nope!!! They started removing the cardboard core!!!!! Blasphemy!!!! Their reason: it's greener! Ummmmmmm..... Do these people not understand the million uses of a cardboard tube???
  6. I read to them until they move out 😬. However, they are not forced to be part of read aloud after they are around 10 or 11. So far, only one of my kids opts out... And he is totlybtight about it. He can not stay focused and learns way more reading himself. When we are done with a book, he can have it!
  7. Yep, got books, got curricula and kids, and I think it may be time to scan and organize 30 years of photos which are sitting in a huge drawer. I broke it.... Uhhhhhh...... Running. And falling.....then running on it. I was totally in denial until I couldnt get out of my car without using my hands to swing my leg out of the door. Going to have a great first semester back to school. I am grounded, so....they are too.
  8. Yup. I did it. I have a stress fracture to the femoral neck.... 8 weeks off my feet! I am a runner. I am on day 2 and already nuts! anyone wanna crutch race???
  9. Does it exist??? I would like to combine American Lit w/ American hx and writing assignments. TOG and Sonlightwill NOT work! Any ideas??
  10. Pulled my quad up by my hip last Thursday. I ran on it Saturday, Monday and Tuesday. Today I am resting, icing, heating and resting!
  11. I don't know if this is a dup post or not, but I haven't been online much lately. I have been working out though....and yesterday ran my furthest distance ever....18 miles..3:28 Meant to run 15, but miscalculated my route. Ended up at the bottom of a VERY steep hill which runs 3 miles straight up! (I live in a very hilly/ mountainous area). The last 3 miles were VERY ugly, but I finished them....mostly walking, hobbling, cursing, etc. Faithe
  12. I got tired of waiting around for everyone to do stuff with me, so I started making my own plans. I started running and signed up for races. You could do whatever you like....just do it! No one wants to hang out with someone who is boring. Become who you want to be! Then, they will try to distract you from your plans!
  13. 8---I am just so jazzed for you I could twirl and do a happy dance!!! We havebeen through it ALL through the years and I am just so stinkin' excited for you!!! It is giving me the "moxy" to put out there what I do....LOL!!!! Just not yet. :lol: Best of all things!!!! You made me so happy today when I read this!!! Faithe
  14. OY!!! I want my kids to do WAY better than I did!!!! Then, when I old, I want to go play at their houses! â¤ï¸
  15. Quick adjustment. I believe it saved my dd's life...no drama! It completely cured her sleep apnea by shifting her jaw where it was supposed to be, it cleared her air passages, which surgeries did not do! She can finally sleep ....and sleep through without snoring or gagging. This was a miracle device for her.
  16. I still post about my adult kids because it is relevant to the discussion many times. They WERE homeschooled. They ARE self learners, outside of the box, and the result of their homeschooling is the foundation of who they are... And an extension of who they are becoming. Keep posting. ðŸ˜
  17. I understand the Gatorade thing completely! If you have time, water, some honey, a pinch of sea salt and a bit of lemon juice will do the same as a Gatorade without all the junk. I use that when I do long runs and it works well.
