  1. We used mus from the beginning (and love it!) and when my dd hit algebra,it was a struggle for her and for dad who taught it - like you said, an age thing. It took us two years! And now we are playing catch-up. We switched to TT and my kids are all doing well with it - once they got past the silly-kid help in the corner. (After the lesson, they turn the volume off so they don't have to hear "time out for hint!" And just turn it back on if the teacher is talking) It is a year behind, but if you move up a year, it's fine. My best friend used it all the way through and her daughter just scored in the 99th percentile on her SAT! Her other kids score crazy high in math in their standardized test. So it didn't seem to set them back! :) TT has taken out the "teacher intensive" part of math and erased almost all of the tears and complaints - not because it's sooooo easy (we don't find that to be true) but because every problem has an explanation if needed. Dad still helps when needed, but its much more rare. It has been a huge blessing here. BTW, my oldest is a comp sci major.

      Fun! Wish it would snow here. We only get a decent snow fall every few years.

      I wish we'd get a snow day. We didn't get any last year, and it looks like we won't get any this year. Something about Christmas lights and 70+ degree temps doesn't mix!


  5. My dd just stated she wants to marry Howard Carter. We are soooo homeschooled!

  6. Reminding myself to have all the kiddos share what they are thankful for before we eat our pie!

  7. it's amazing - I just began reading this thread and I'm so encouraged. I've always had a list of historical fiction books my kids were supposed to read, but we just never got to them - because I always had great old books that I thought "This is so awesome they just have to read it - even though it totally doesn't match our history!" I guess my love for good books won the battle and that's ok. No more guilt for not reading the recommended historical fiction! :)
