  1. Math: Math Mammoth 6 LA: Sonlight D (maybe) or Writing and Rhetoric and Rod and Staff; Spelling Workout D; a Reason for Handwriting cursive ( maybe) History: Sonlight D and VP Self Paced Reformation Science: Sonlight D he really liked this science (C) this year so hoping this works again. Language: Duolingo Spanish Starting a new Coop this year. Hopefully that works out.
  2. Can't believe it's time for 8th grade already! Math: Lifepac Geometry ( we have 3 units left) and then Algebra II Language Arts: Gonna try Sonlight J this year. This is our worst subject so we'll see. Might look at Writing and Rhetoric and start way back at a beginner level. She is excellent at grammar so might not do a separate program for that this year. History: Sonlight J History of Science. Science: Apologia General Handwriting: she has asked to do printing again so whatever the highest level of handwriting program I find that does printing. lol Language
  3. We ditched it last year and are using Jump In over two years. Seems to be working out much, much better!
  4. Or do I need a Fire Tablet 10inch. lol.
  5. Ordered an air fryer earlier after a lot of issues. Just ordered an SD card. Now I'm considering a Kindle Paperwhite. I already have a Kindle tablet. Do I need a Paperwhite?
  6. It does sound like yeast but I'd go to the doctor to be sure. My mom had an issue a while back and it was a combo of yeast and the material her bra was made out of. You may need a prescription.
  7. We use Lifepac which I think is the same as CLE basically. I really like it for Algebra etc. Used Horizons for 1st and it was fine but a lot of extra problems we didn't need. (we've also used Math Mammoth and Singapore and those work well too.) Choose what's easiest for you to teach.
  8. Does that mean a new father can bring his baby onto the floor? I'm sure she has a nanny so why would the baby need to be there? I just think it's way too distracting. I mean an 11 month old on the floor would absolutely be ridiculous.
  9. I have 4 plus one I wear on laundry day. 4 seems just about right. I wear twice before washing.
  10. Kids must be in their rooms by7:30, lights out at 8:30. They both are required to be up by 7:30 so we can start school by 8. DD 11 seems to require more sleep than DS 7 so is usually sleeping before him and up later than him.
  11. My kids go to bed at 7:30 with lights out at 8:30, 9 on the weekend. DD almost 11 seems to need more sleep than DS. He manages to stay awake until almost 10 most nights and is up around 7 every morning. I have to drag DD out of bed at 7:30 in the morning.
  12. My 6th grader will have read about 18 books for school this year. She also reads a book a month for book club and 30 minutes a day free reading.
  13. Yep. It seems so odd to have the sun out so late. I set a timer on my Echo to remind me of things.
  14. We school 6 on 1 off mid July through mid May. We then have a good 5 weeks off and one week of VBS before hitting the books again. I also take 2 weeks off in December for Christmas. We always go on a vacation during our week off in February to somewhere warm. Sometimes that ends up being a bit more than a week off.
  15. I'd say it's pretty important. DD is now using R&S grammar 6 and it still comes up a lot. Also all helping verb list comes up frequently. It certainly makes the day go faster because she had them memorized. DS just finished memorizing and his favorite part is Down, During, Except For From. ;)
