  1. 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?

  2. Finally moved! Hello, New York!

      Good for you! I hope you settle in comfortably, quickly.

  3. Well, I do know a blog. They do outings around Cape Town and I just love love love the pictures and commentary. http://www.se7en.org.za/
  4. I know it's late, but I've been compiling a list. I hope this helps. I'm pretty prudish about sex in film with kids, but the parents advisories look ok for the first list and the last. You will have to look for yourself, though, as your standards might differ. :) Sorry about the lack of capitalization, I typed it up quickly. likely ok: Au Revoir Les Enfants The Returned (Netflix-this one does have a couple iffy scenes and some nudity but it is done well, I have watched it, and it's ok for teens IMO) Extraordinary adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec (Netflix) The Chorus (Netflix, Amazon rent

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

      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.

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

  7. Ugh. I totally agree here. If they work for you-more power to you. But the MLM (or whatever alternative term you want to use but is really the same thing) craze has created tension in friendships. I don't mind my friends making money from home. But I do hate being pressured by like 800 friends to buy from them when they know I'm broke. It's the whole money+friendship equation. And it's such a craze. OMG. I'll admit I think some look cool, but no way will I buy them-I'm too messy between ceramics, paint, and scrubbing the house. :lol:
  8. Selling a house is way more stressful than I thought it would be!

      Crazy how much it is


  9. Realtor stopping by to list my house. My stomach is in knots.

      Won't you be my neighbor? Where to?


    3. mommymilkies


      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've been unsure about Memoria Press. I'd prefer something Classical vs. Ecclesiastical and secular. I've heard excellent things, though. OTOH, I already own all of Wheelock's for my own study!
  12. Sorry for joining late! My dd is very particular about doing all of these languages and I am by no means forcing them. I require one, they are just her biggest area of interest. It's funny thinking about how different this will look for my son next year! So far our plans are: History: Ancient History-a variety of sources. English: Essay Voyage, The Writer's Journey, On Writing, Writing from the Senses, Elements of Style, Deluxe Transitive Vampire, Writing Without the Muse, EIL, Teaching with Movies units, Help for High School (Bravewriter), finish Vocab From Classical Roots, D
  13. I wish more places actually offered variety! I know we didn't have any at school until high school. And when my dd was at public school they didn't even offer a vegetarian alternative. You had ONE choice. Dd is a vegetarian and they just told her to eat it anyway as she was required to have protein. That ended well. I'd rather see kids eat well with more healthy choices.
