  1. I would (and did) put "Homeschool Tutor" on my resume. It's one of the things I've been doing for the last 12 years and I'm proud of that work. I also described the position (researching, organizing, and implementing curricula for three students). During the job interview, I had the uncanny feeling that everything I'd been doing at home was training for this job; the interviewers asked about multitasking (ha!), interacting with unhappy individuals, and keeping volunteers on task, as well as my familiarity with children's literature and what I'd do if I saw a 2-yr-old running towards the stairs
  2. Anyone else saving a few things for the grandkids? It’ll be a few years, but the R&S grammar books and some other things (the Cuisenaire rods for sure!) will be sticking around.
  3. Currently planning to have generous (possibly masked) friends 😁 serve the food. So no shared serving utensils. Or have pre-portioned food for people to pick up. Food isn’t a spreader, so this isn’t a big concern for me. This thread is helping me think through some logistics! Thanks for starting it!
  4. Our state restrictions are currently at 100 people outdoors. Not sure what they’ll be in June, but we’re planning a party at the park with 50-100 people. Food served by friends (whom I haven’t asked yet 😁), short ceremony, and outdoor games. I assume that those uncomfortable with gatherings won’t come, which is fine. OP - do you know any farmers or country folks where you could gather in more privacy?
  5. Jonathan Spence for serious Chinese history reading. "The Search for Modern China" covers late Ming - 1980s, and Japan and Russia come into the story of course. Also includes a helpful glossary and "further reading" section by chapter and topic.
  6. New to low-carb/keto and we really like this for breakfast: Line muffin tin wells with bulk sausage (1# for 12 wells). Beat together 6 eggs and some cream (1/4c?); season with salt and pepper or other seasoning. Pour into sausage cups. Top with shredded cheese (~1Tbsp/well). Bake at 350F for 20-30 minutes (until sausage is cooked and eggs are set; they will puff up and brown lightly). These can be made ahead and reheated.
  7. Yikes. What were they planning to do when he showed up/ left home???
  8. DD’s violin teacher is part of a quartet that plays video game music. They play for gaming conferences, etc. They’ve released multiple albums. (He’s also part of a regular symphony and he teaches). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lvgDoNUM2jU All that to say: You never know where an obsession will lead! 😊
  9. You could send some soup. www.abowlofgood.com This is a local business (to me) and they ship soup nationwide. See “send them a meal” at the bottom of the homepage. 🙂
  10. My kids were amazed. 😄 But I feel like the health message is very mixed!
  11. And I’d also assess the trampoline placement and what ideas it might inspire. Our teenage neighbors in IL used to jump out of their 2nd floor windows and off the garage roof onto the trampoline (before their parents got home from work). 😬
