15 Good
  1. Xochitl Corn Chips http://www.amazon.co...s=xochitl chips Love these so much! They have them at many grocery stores but I have also seen them at Walmart if you can't find them. Thin and like a restaurant chip.
  2. I should have said my kids do like the readings from that Bible. the trouble is that we do the 5-day in 3 or 4 days since we have coop one day and sometimes miss another day. When that happens we have to double up and it gets longer for the 6 year old. The 8 year old usually asks for more, she is reading through it herself now as well as listening. I Heard Good News is another that is scheduled a lot some weeks. We have had enough time to do the 5day in less than 5 days and also add some sequels to the read out louds. A few examples, we read all three books in the My Fathers Dragon series, and we are reading The Complete Tales of Winnie the Pooh instead of just The House at Pooh Corner. I know some say that you can just read the books in the list, but I love having the schedule to follow or I would fall behind.
  3. We are using just the core part of A for my 6 year olds kindergarten, her 2nd grade sister is listening along as well. We started P4/5 as last May as "summer school," and will finish it this summer after we finish A. We could have just kept going with it, but they were soooo excited to start some of the Core A books last fall that we just went with it. My 8 year old still LOVES the books in P4/5, she asks for them actually. I wish they hadn't labeled it as a preschool core. No one likes to have their kid seem "behind". My 8 year old is getting much more out of A than the 6 year old. In A there is a lot of reading from the Egermeiers Bible Story book. If you don't have that yet, I would recommend checking it out to see if your child would sit through what is scheduled. You also do not need to take a full year to do a lower core. You could start reading P4/5 during the summer, even if you aren't doing other subjects. Then, just move onto A when you finish. If your child is used to being read to, P4/5 will only take a couple days to do the whole week. You could potentially read the whole core in 18 weeks or so.
  4. I was like that. It was quite painful to listen to others read during 6th/7th grade.
  5. They have whole milk yogurt at mine. I get a large tub of Vanilla. There are also 6 packs of smaller child size flavors such as Banana and Blueberry.
  6. This is the one we are looking at. The center divide is lower. A friend of mine has had it for 5 years and loves it. I have seen it go down to $230. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0028BPCF2/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER
  7. I also like the Old Navy Sweetheart and the Not your Daughters Jeans. The NYDJ I have are high waisted though. Not sure if all of theirs are. They are sooo comfy. Found them at Nordstrom Rack for about 70% off retail.
  8. Leappad 2 with app gift cards! if there isn't a budget and they are ok with tech toys. The Leappads are $100 with a few games already on it. But new games are $5-$25 each. Anything Bitty Baby. Mine have all begged for the changing table, the crib is cute too. My three year old is loving playdough.
  9. Thank you both, that is exactly what I needed. I think we will go with the Haba set. Now, to get the First Playthings one, or the Construction set bigger one... http://www.amazon.com/Haba-Ball-Track-Construction-Set/dp/B000F94GMO/ref=sr_1_1?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1355516843&sr=1-1&keywords=haba+marble+run
  10. We are trying to pick out a gift from Grandma and Grandpa for our 3 year old (also have 2 older kids to help set up). We are thinking about the First Playing set by Haba : http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002HYFEI/ref=s9_simh_gw_p21_d0_i5?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=1MA8WCTR2HX4QRCERG44&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1389517282&pf_rd_i=507846 In the reviews for Haba, many people recommend Tedco, which is made in the US and less expensive: http://www.amazon.com/Tedco-20400-Blocks-Marbles-Super/dp/B000FGKI2O/ref=sr_1_1?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1355516775&sr=1-1&keywords=Tedco+marble Here is their website: http://tedcotoys.com/dyn_prodlist.php?k=2157 Does anyone have the Tedco set? Are they compatible with Haba? I am leaning towards Haba because of the add ons for later, although we probably won't ever get many since they are sooo expensive. Unless I find some on Craigslist or something. Anyone selling any? If we did choose Haba, should we just pony up and pay extra for the bigger set? http://www.amazon.com/Haba-Ball-Track-Construction-Set/dp/B000F94GMO/ref=sr_1_1?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1355516843&sr=1-1&keywords=haba+marble+run
  11. I just ordered from them, and paid $5 for the next grade up of shipping, it ensures that the order will go out tomorrow. It was still cheaper than ordering from Amazon since a game I wanted was $10 less at RR. I only live a couple states away, they are in IL, so that makes it faster for me as well.
  12. Lego Technic or something from the Lego Education site? http://www.legoeducation.us/# Does he like art? A woodburning kit? A Draw knife to cut the bark off trees, my kids did this at a pioneer days and loved it,they are about $50 and last forever. Flint and steel and a survival book.
  13. Strong Willed Child or Dreamer http://www.amazon.com/Strong-Willed-Child-Dreamer-Dana-Spears/dp/0785277005/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1353603426&sr=8-1&keywords=strong+willed+child+or+dreamer
