  1. How do I go about finding a math tutor for my 8th grader? He wants to try public school for high school next year, and I need to get him caught up on math. We had issues with math anxiety and a lot of arguing and drama with math, so I took it pretty slow for several years. He's willing to put in the work to get caught up and has gotten better about dealing with frustration. We've been using Lial's Basic College Math, which some of my other kids have used in the past, and I really like it. However, I feel like I'm not keeping us on a fast enough pace, and that following the textbook will be too
  2. I have a long history of GERD and it always feels like a burning pain to me. I spent years chewing Tums all the time, which I later read, can actually make stomach acid issues worse over time. It got so bad several years ago, when I was at my highest weight ever, that I was having these painful "attacks" at night and would wake up in pain so bad I would spend a few hours laying on the living room floor on my left side praying for it to pass, and I would usually end up vomiting a lot and then eventually feel better. It started happening more and more frequently so I drastically changed my diet,
  3. Lots of soup recipes for the crockpot are easy and good, I often wing it and dump in chicken or ground turkey and/or beans and whatever veggies and herbs I have on hand, along with broth and maybe some small pasta or rice toward the end. We make this crockpot lentil recipe a lot. http://pinchofyum.com/crockpot-red-lentil-curry Buffalo chicken in the crockpot for salads or sandwiches- put in 6-8 raw chicken breasts, or I often use thighs because they don't get dry, and add /2 c Frank’s Wing Sauce, 1/4 c yellow mustard, and 1/4 c apple cider vinegar. Cook on high for 5 hours (my crockp
  4. Thanks! My brain is not functioning on so little sleep right now, so I appreciate any help.
  5. My husband had surgery recently and I'm exhausted and haven't been able to keep up, and now I can't print my kids' transcripts, on top of my daughter not getting to complete her Novel in a Year course and being out $312 for a recent group buy. My kids' teachers were excellent and I'm disappointed for them that they're not being paid what they are owed. Landry had no business taking customer's money or hiring teachers they couldn't pay.
  6. Landry Academy is closing. We got an email from my daughter's novel in a year teacher today stating that Landry is now closed. This is in the middle of my daughter's year long class, she is in the middle of writing her novel. What a waste of a semester and we paid for a year and are not getting that. A teacher of one of her semester classes sent an email stating that Landry has not been truthful and I believe that. They had no business taking homeschooling parent's money or hiring teachers they couldn't afford to pay. I assume we will never get the money back from this group buy, I'm out $312
  7. Thank you so much! I got busy and haven't been back to this forum for awhile. I have to be to the hospital soon with a family member today, but will come back to this thread as soon as I have time and can think clearly. I appreciate all the help! I don't know a thing about programming, that's why my question is broad, but will give some thought to what we need more specifically and will look at your questions, Lanny, thanks!
  8. Where could my son take online computer programming classes? He is 15 and would need advanced programming classes. He has been mostly self-taught up to this point. This would be for spring semester. ETA: I looked at Landry Academy but the time for advanced Python classes conflicts with his online math class.
  9. You are both making me hungry! I'm putting tacos on my menu for this week.
  10. We put tons of veggies in our tacos too. I love the added texture of shredded cabbage in a taco, especially a fish taco. We love everything else you mentioned on a taco too. Plus pico or salsa or jalapenos.
  11. Novel writing class online Adobe Illustrator class online geometry class online Having a lot of trouble with history and science, and we need to start full time by the 12th.
  12. I love tacos. Any kind of taco. Tacos are a regular dinner here- fish tacos, black bean tacos, chicken tacos. The more spice and the more stuff in there, the better. I tend to eat Paleo, but make an exception for tacos. It's just not the same eating my taco filling on salad greens.
