  1. If I have something to say to you, I gotta say it. If I think of something to add to a recent conversation it will roll around my head, bugging me, until I get to say it to you.
  2. I guess it depends on what part of the country you're in.
  3. I just left Texas, but I have a Texas garden story. I tried a veggie garden. I used ant killer, the ants ate my corn, the birds pecked my tomatoes before they ripened, and a neighbors pig got loose and ate my broccoli right when it was almost read guy. I stuck to pumpkin patches after that. Nice, thick skinned pumpkins.
  4. pm me where. My sister already lives there and she homeschools my 8yr old nephew. I told her to go check it out for me. She sounded happy to.
  5. hey! Cool. That's where we're going. My sister's already there. I'm excited. I Googled your group. I'm glad I asked. No fees. Field trips. Group discounts. Is it local to Apopka, or in Orlando. I'll be living in Apopka. I have an 8 yr. old & a 5 yr. old.
  6. There's a lot of home school groups listed on google for Orlando Fl. I'm just reaching out to see if anybody here is over there. I just finished a year long divorce. After Christmas we will be moving to Orlando with my family and I will get to resume homeschooling my kids.
  7. There's a thing called time journaling where you get an hourly day planner and record what you did instead of what you plan to do. This lets you see where the blocks of time you waste could add up to enough time to do another thing you'd like to do. Yes, I'm an xx yr. old housewife who still needs to read stuff on getting organized. Live and learn.
  8. My phone's not letting me. You're right. When I Googled those words, it didn't come up either. When I google "cyborg costumes" and click on google images, it's in the top row (for me, I know Google's adaptive). It's the one where the face paint looks more like a Borg eye patch. I found it on sears link for "cyborg costume" about the 5th row down. ETA: I also found it on amazon as "Childs cyborg costume Large".
  9. cyborg costume at buy costumes dot com That looks like the costume we bought my nephew and we plan to paint his face the same way. It looks cool.
  10. Gorilla snot hairgell from WalMart. My son doesn't have curly hair, but he's had a really tall mowhawk before and that stuff is stiff, strong, and long lasting. He would fall asleep in the car and lay on it and the mohawk would bounce back up when we got out.
  11. my preschooler drew a picture of me sitting in a chair in front of an egg I just laid
  12. How do the public schools offer to take responsibility for all these kids education and then this author thinks it's anybody else's responsibility when it fails besides the public school? Blame the legislators, the schoolboard, the textbook companies. If it's truly beyond their control then why did they offer to take the responsibility? If they don't have the ability to find solutions then why did they fight other people for these jobs? I'm sure that everyone who took those jobs fought out somebody else to take them. Like one commenter said, "since when is looking out for your own family a problem?". Hmph. The social contract says I should contribute to making it better for people to live togeather in civilization, but it doesn't say I have to give up my responsibility to look out for my own family. Like one of the commenters said, "We're not homeschooling this well to make the public schools look bad, we're just doing our own thing well because it's right for us." lame article, enjoyed the comments Hey article lady, if homeschoolers are taking all the "necessary" parents away, then go lobby that only retired homeschool parents can run the public schools anymore. (just kidding-it's apples and oranges).
  13. Darn it! I was hoping this was something cool I could buy. It's right up our alley. Kids just learned the names of the States from 50 nifty United States on youtube. They get ahold of a song like that and they sing it to death. I would totally buy a cd that was kids songs with a walkthrough of world history or American history.
  14. I didn't use the program, but I enjoyed the 30 day trial of "Active Chinese" a couple years ago. It's worth looking at. It's cute.
