  1. I'm so sorry, Susan. Haven't been on the boards in a long while, but news travels and I just want to let you know that you have lots of "old regulars" praying for you.
  2. Hi Laura! Nice to hear from you! Love being your FB friend and Mary loves seeing what AG posts, too! Glad to see she and Chloe seem to be doing so well.

  3. Hey Chris- I'll try to find the picture. Sorry it's taken me so long to respond! I don't get on here much. Hope you are all doing well! :)

  4. Hi Laura!

    Hope you guys are all doing well--we think of you and pray for you so often!

    Do you think you could send me the Monty Python avatar I used to have? I can't access the photo in the form you sent the very first time (I think it can't get past my filter somehow) but I am not sure how to "find" it!

    Just want to make it mine again, LOL!!


  5. I think it's a year-long course. The TPS website does not mention it being only a semester long. HTH
  6. I can look around when I'm out and I'll let you know if I find any. Which set are you wanting to buy? I would have to mail them to you via USPS Priority mail or it would take about 2 months for you to get them. It may be a week or so before I have a chance to look for them.
  7. We used one of the history books for a very brief time. I'm not sure if it was 4th or 5th grade. Since Rod & Staff is a Mennonite curriculum, it focuses quite a bit on nonresistance, and this focus deterred me from continuing with it. Have you looked at the Table of Contents for the 8th grade book? There are a lot of chapters that have sections covering nonresistance during each time period. It may not be an important factor for you, but I thought I'd share. HTH
  8. It's been about 5 years since we used it and we did not buy a kit. I don't recall there being anything that I had a hard time finding.
  9. I believe the clear majority believe it *is* helping the child (and perhaps many other children), by alerting the authorities. Allowing the child to be in a home where this type of behavior is occurring, is most definitely not "helping".
  10. I would call the police and tell them your concerns. Too many red flags for me to ignore it. You mentioned that the same thing occurred 5 years ago, which means there is still a problem. The child is at risk, in my opinion.
  11. I posted several quotes where they spoke of such things in Aubrey's thread.
  12. Lots of families use SOTW secularly. Have you had a chance to see the book? I would not classify SOTW as specifically Christian.
  13. Here are a few quotes from 2 of the 3 books I checked out of the library. I really don't want to read the 3rd book, but if anyone needs even more quotes, I may oblige. Progressivism, the Great Depression, and the New Deal (1901-1941) p.22 "By 1900, if not before, it had become obvious to many thoughtful people that too many Americans were not getting their fair share of the growing American prosperity." p.30 "Although there were some improvements, farmers, laborers, and the poor were still not getting anything like their fair share of the nation's wealth." p.31 "But t
