  1. Some links aren't working for me right now. Are these from a variety of perspectives and sources? Is this a private religious school? Because without context to those articles, I would be really really upset.
  2. NY is a terrible state to homeschool in. Everyone says it's no big deal. So far that has not been the case.

      What has been giving you trouble? Maybe we can suggest something. I've been homeschooling in NY for 9 years.

      The district has already tried to go beyond state law in our first go through. Requesting things outside of their jurisdiction and power. And the paperwork. OMG the paperwork. WHY does NY like paperwork so much?

  3. Ocean? Never. Lake? Probably never. Pond? 16-18 if they are lifeguard certified. I would never leave a group of untrained children to swim alone.
  4. Finally moved! Hello, New York!

      Mine just showed part of a box with no links when I click the notification icon.

    3. Where's Toto?

      Where's Toto?

      I get the partial box. I have a number indicating notifications but nothing shows when I click. I guess I'm glad to see it's not just me.

      So it's not just me? Must be a glitch! I was afraid I broke something! It seems to be working now, so hopefully yours goes back to normal, too.

  6. This move is a disaster. Very bad idea.

      It will be OK. Tough, but OK. Things will work out one way or another. Hugs.

      Oh, no. I've read how tough it has been. I hope it works out for you in the end.

  7. I love MCT's materials for visual spacial learners. It really did help my VSL, in particular. I will say that the Poetry books are not to be missed, though. I have heard Mr Thompson speak at homeschool conventions and his poetry books really are beautiful. They bring the language to life and speak to the kids in ways I haven't seen elsewhere. I love them so much. And listening to him speak literature and poetry in person is almost spiritual. If you add nothing else from the series, I would recommend at least mentioning his poetry books. You can use them separately, fwiw.
  8. Selling a house is way more stressful than I thought it would be!

      Far far Western NY! Hopefully congratulations are in order. I'm very happy to be leaving Illinois again. ;)

      Congrats! Hope your family gets a fantastic relocation and remuneration package

  11. I would so buy this. Yes, please. :D Yes! Especially for Visual Spacial Kids and secular homeschoolers. They are colorful, funny, but very thorough and impressive. Can we add Apples & Pears by Prometheus Press for Spelling? Notably for kids with dyslexia, but slow learners, as well. I know on the Special Needs forum it's been a Godsend for many of us. All About Spelling, as well!!
  12. They don't smear, but yes they bleed through thinner paper about as much as my other bright pens.
  13. I prefer my Sharpie pens and Pigma Microns. :)
  14. What washi tape did you order? I'm on the look out for some cute animal/forest type stuff.
  15. I made myself a leather Midori-type cover and a few blank booklets, so I'm loving all these ideas!
