  1. My 7th grade daughter schools for 6 hours a day, including lunch.
  2. I MUCH prefer the concise version. Tone is the same. I really love the concise version and it was one of the only things in our entire schooling that engaged my daughter last year.
  3. We don't use Sonlight but we religiously steal their book lists. :) We loved the Core D books, especially Johnny Tremain. Lots of great books in that year.
  4. We don't use SL but love the booklists. My DD (12) will be working through many of these during our next school year but I'll share the ones we have already read and mark the ones one or both of us loved. Where the Mountain Meets the Moon* Journey to Jo'burg Call it Courage* The House of Sixty Fathers* The Cat Who Went to Heaven King of the Wind* Around the World in Eighty Days* Li Lun, Lad of Courage* Born in the Year of Courage Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes* Rickshaw Girl* Have fun deciding!
  5. Following because I'm interested to see what responses you get.
  6. Wasn't it an amazing conference? President Uchtdorf's talk about grace was stunning, instructive and I'm positive it was meant specifically for me. :) I can't wait to watch it again, read it and study it. Elder Holland's talk was phenomenal, too. And Elder Nelson's about the Sabbath? Fantastic. And then there was the temple announcement. Wow! *tears* There were just so many special moments. :thumbup:
  7. Thanks! I sent the grandmother a list but my DD just turned 12 and isn't into those genres/topics. I'll pass your suggestions on. Thank you both!
  8. I have a friend who has requested my help, which means, I, in turn, need yours. :) Her granddaughter is a young teen and is blind. She is looking for recommendations for good books to listen to. They have access to good libraries. Specific requests: humorous or first love or musical Ideas? Hit me up, please!
  9. Really great sessions but Elder Holland knocked it out of the park, yet again. Amazing! Elder Wong's talk in Cantonese was just so amazing to me. What a moving explanation of how we might rescue those in need.
  10. I followed all those bra sizing/fitting links and must say that switching bra sizes has been great. My calculated size was off, though. I measured to be a 42G but a 40DDD was what actually fit so I'd definitely take the bra calculations with a grain of salt. A well-fitting bra makes a world of difference.
  11. I did something similar a few years ago and it went much better for us! Good luck!
