  1. We will be graduating our first. I'm doing a little happy dance about this. 12th Dual Enrollment. She needs 2 college level math classes and 4 electives to graduate with her AA degree. I'm not sure if she plans on finishing or will hold off on math till later. So honestly, no planning on my part needed. DD will need to start her college applications and possibly another try at the SAT (waiting on scores). 7th MATH: Saxon 8/7, Singapore Math Word Problems Lvl 5. LA: EIW / EIL 7, Spelling Made Easy. (Last year of formal spelling) Science: Holt Life Science & Technology, QSL experiment kit History: Holt McDougal World Geography /CIVICS Electives: Typing, Getting Start With Spanish, Notetaking/Study Skills Nephews will continue public school for 4th & 5th Myself: Summer: Composition I, Dev Math 2 & General Biology FALL: A & P I, Intermediate Alg, Intro to Healthcare, Medical Terminology, TEAS 6 review.
  2. She CAN do it... she just can't focus long enough to do it so it took her over 30 mins just to write it out.............. I will try shortening it by a couple sentences and adding in one per week.
  3. Quick question. We did Week 2 day 2 today. My DD 8.5 took forever to complete the copywork. Am I able to reduce the amount she copies per day but still have her identify the nouns etc by circling them on her printed sheet she is copying from, or do you think it takes away from the overall goal?
  4. I bought Starting A Spelling Notebook by Mari McAlister on amazon. It helped me understand it a lot more by seeing it in a more visual format even though I read the 4th edition 3 times. :)

    depending on which job you may not need any experience. PM for some good sites for ecigs and liquid if you want. Thanks :) It's been different and stressful and could be a good thing IF I look at it the right way. LOL.

    We are going through something similar... DH is actually losing his job though. I have stopped helping with the job situation b/c it puts him under more stress than he already is. As far as smoking.... I bought myself a Ecig to make the regular smokes last longer..... and I no longer buy coffee out. I use a travel mug if I am out and about. Since moving I am not working.. BUT I am looking but can't really do anything until DH get's back here... 2 more weeks. I can't remember if you have any medical experience? If you do I would look at local hospitals or clinics. They usually have PRN shifts available that have variety of shifts. you could even look for EVS positions (patient transport etc) For groceries.... we have been doing a lot of meatless meals b/c it just is not in our budget. Oatmeal is also a good breakfast and goes a long way. HTH
  7. Thanks 8 for answering those questions. My we just found out that my 3rd grader reading instructional level and independent level is a lot higher than we expected. So now I can really focus on her writing :) We originally were going to use MP Intro to Comp but I think we will be doing TC instead b/c of the amount of scaffolding it has. Thank you!
  8. Thank you both this is good information for me to have. I do have her set up working with a local artist to work on her skills and to start building her portfolio in JR year. I think we are keeping in 8th with the plan for her to focus on her art/portfolio her Jr/Sr year for submission and hopefully securing an internship as well.
  9. I am headed back there tomorrow as well. I wont be able to bring my computer but I will show them a printed page from my printer. I wonder if they will be able to access my print order with the uploaded file as I do not have a thumb drive.
  10. Mine has the same issue through out the book to the point it is unusable b/c you can't read it. Lots of little squares, questions marks etc. But when I printed a page out on my printer it printed fine.....
  11. I agree. She does not need it but in order for us to qualify for the BrightFutures Scholarship she needs 4 years and they have to be Alg I and higher. I will have to see if the allow Statistics as an option. I think my plan for her is to do that her senior year. She is a young 8th grader b/c of her birthday so I would prefer her to not graduate early and just spend her senior year doing a light school schedule so she can spend that year with the internship and outside art classes to work on her portfolio.
