  1. I appreciate the tips! I’m inspired to try roasting pumpkin seeds again and experiment a little. ? The results of my one and only attempt a year or two ago were rather blah. ?
  2. I’m feeling sure this is a stupid question but will ask anyway... the bacon being added to the water... is it already cooked or raw?
  3. We are three weeks in and, besides some new adjustments to grammar and writing, this is actually what is getting done (besides art and craft stuff that I have left outside of scheduled school time and happens sporadically as interest fluctuates).
  4. Three weeks in and I think I've finally nailed this down for the year (except a future Latin decision). Saxon 87 Sonlight G World History & literature Apologia General Science w/ student notebook Getting Started with Latin (to review/refresh and following that with something off my shelf -- Visual Latin, Henle, or Cambridge ... or something) Rod and Staff English 6 Writing With Skill 1 karate piano Japanese From Zero his own self directed art
  5. I would have returned it immediately. I don’t call Amazon for problems with items shipped via Prime — just initiate the return, state the reason, select refund preference, return shipping preference, repackage, and wait for UPS to pick it up next day. Recieving a product that was not as listed automatically grants free return shipping and free pick up (in my personal experience).
  6. Still gleaning inspiration but so far ... Saxon Math 87 or maybe AoPS Pre Algebra which we will trial this summer Spelling Workout G Sonlight G, world history, literature & LA Apologia General Science Henle Visual Latin Greek Piano with tutor Spanish ... he draws and is always working on that. There may be some classes next year, also. He is hoping for a public speaking class. (probably no outside classes next year besides the art classes within walking distance of home)
  7. Saxon Math 65 CLE 500 Saxon 65 MAYBE Rod and Staff English 5, maybe Igniting Your Writing, Spelling Workout E, Writing With Ease, studied dictation ... writing undecided Sonlight D American history, Draw the USA, States and Capitals Apologia zoology Science in the Beginning Ukulele Piano with tutor Spanish and/or Latin with Big Book of Lively Latin Spanish & Greek Drawing, painting and stuff Touch typing
  8. Math Mammoth, Miquon Rod and Staff English, Spelling Workout, Writing With Ease, studied dictation Apologia Elementary Series, Zoology Sonlight D, American history; Draw the USA; States and Capitals Ukulele Spanish ... but I don’t know with what, yet. Currently working through Getting Started with Spanish.
  9. Aw! <3 What a thoughtful and sweet guy! I had to google what that was. The flosser, not the thoughtful and sweet guy lol
  10. Well, we already broke the most defining family tradition by disassociating from the NPD SIL and so eliminating the yearly multi-triangulating, emotional bulldozing, insults/threats/cuss-outs, etc. without which other family members will not even join us because what is a traditional family holiday without all of that?! So we are wide open for new traditions and if I already had tested purple mashed potatoes and found them just as good (and actually had a supply) I would absolutely serve them for Thanksgiving. :D
  11. Some stretches it's daily and sometimes we've gone days, weeks, even months of no contact. I quit FB but when I used to check in randomly I would notice a lot of things she shared there that I had no idea about. On the other hand I also noticed that I knew about a whole lot of things she didn't share on FB.
  12. My daughter also became instantly attached to a pillow pet she was gifted years ago and still takes it on every trip and to every sleep over. It's a zebra and she had no history of specifically favoring zebras or lovies of any type but now Zebra the pillow pet is a member of the family. :huh:
  13. No. I have a digital planner for each child to record what gets done each day after it actually gets done (if I remember to use it). I get through homeschooling by having (a) long term goals for their overall education and (b) short term progress goals for the current school year and © a list of core resources (and a mental list of general, extra resources) that I intend to use (but will change up as needed) to accomplish this progress towards the overall goals and then (d) a weekly and daily routine for spending time with those resources. I stress and start twitching if it gets more specific than that (re: homeschool and life in general).
