  1. We just got back from the doctor's. She got the vaccination and had 3 vials of blood drawn (she is being tested for hair loss). Other than a sore arm (I would have a sore arm too!), she is fine. The hardest part was fasting for those tests especially since we were forgotten in the waiting room. The computer didn't know we were there! I had to go remind them that we had been sitting for 30 minutes and my daughter was feeling a bit yucky from no food. Anyway, it's done and I'm glad that's over. :-)
  2. Thank you for all the replies! My husband is undecided on getting this vaccination for her. I needed some encouragement to help him understand how important this is. She has an appointment tomorrow to get the shot; now I just need to discuss it with him tonight. Thanks again!
  3. I am assuming most here went ahead with getting this immunization for their child. Any adverse reactions out there? Anyone NOT get it and still able to attend college?
  4. I don't know why this made be giggle....but it did. Sorry, here's the link: https://forums.sonlight.com/
  5. Wow! Thanks for the report. Looks like there are not many who risked it all. I continue to be impressed. But will wait just a bit more to make sure all is well. :D
  6. Yeah, I get those warnings and I visualize my whole digital life going down the drain.....but I so admire your bravery!
  7. I wonder if there's any discussion about it on their forums. Since you already bravely forged ahead, maybe you could check and see if there's any talk about it over there. :001_smile:
  8. I keep getting a warning that I shouldn't go on Sonlight's forums website ('not a trusted site'). Has anyone else gotten a warning like this today? It was okay yesterday.
  9. AHL is Ancient, not British lit. Maybe you meant WHL?
  10. Crochet is the one of the few things in my life right now that doesn't want something from me, is always there when I am in the mood, relaxes my weary nerves, and does what I want it to. ;)
  11. So, are you saying that you can unravel from the other end (the beginning)? To me, that means that you are going to place where your foundation row is. Normally, you can't unravel from that end. You can only untie those stitches just like you are describing the problem areas....the stitches only will untie by hand. No way can you do that for very many rows. Sounds to me like your work is backwards. I have never had where my rows I am currently working on will not unravel except when using a nasty yarn that 'gets stuck'. Is there any way you can fill in the missing areas with a piece added into your work? It all depends on the look of your pattern....would it hide the added piece well? ed And I feel your pain about stressing until you are back to where you were. I do the same thing. If I rip out a couple rows, I have to sit there until it's all back again looking tidy and happy. :) So, don't do anything drastic. Three months is a lot of work to catch up on. I would set it aside for a day or so, catch up on your sleep, and maybe an easy fix will present itself.
  12. Praying for her family.....and my sister is having surgery tonight....she has cancer too. It sucks.
  13. Let's see, yes, the notes have all the comments about slavery. The other resources in Core 100 do not go down the road. I want to clarify and say that I did not state that SL condones slavery, far from it. They do present both sides, but I feel that they go over the top in trying to portray that some slaves indeed loved their masters and their lives. I do understand that some slaves felt that they were indeed rescued from living pagan lives in Africa (Phillis Wheatley comes to mind), but then there were those such as Amos Fortune. He wanted to be free, but that did not come until he was too old to enjoy it. And the name of the war is a minor issue. I also found where he calls it, America's Great War. I think that is much better than any of the terms I've heard. And yes, the North was just as racist as the South, they just didn't need slaves to work in the steel factories! I totally understand that SL gives both sides so that the student can make up his or her own mind, BUT sometimes there is a lopsided amount of Mr. H's way of thinking to achieve a balanced approach (to counter the lopsided approach in regular textbooks). Mr. H is the first to say that he doesn't want to push his agenda, so I know he gets there is a danger there of this happening. And as long as the teacher recognizes the issues, then it can be an interesting journey. I still might use Core 100 again with my dd; it's her last go with American history and I wouldn't want it to be boring. ;)
  14. I am in the process of trying to decide what to use next year for American history. My son did Core 100 a few years ago and frankly, I had a hard time swallowing all of SL's comments on slavery and how many slaves really loved being slaves. Like my dd said to me yesterday, 'it's like a tiger in the zoo....sure he loves the free hand-outs, but he doesn't know any better. And the tiger doesn't have to work for his hand-outs either'. So, your comment about SL telling the truth of slavery, well, maybe I just didn't get what Mr. Holzmann was saying. I know he doesn't condone slavery....but then says it's allowed in the Bible....and then says that many slaveholders were cruel....but there were plenty that were kind too. I understand that not all were cruel, but to own a person is just wrong to the very core of my being. In addition, Mr. H renames The Civil War as The War for Southern Independence, and then goes on to tell the student to make up his own mind about Lincoln (after dragging Lincoln's name through the mud consistently throughout all the notes), well, it just doesn't work well that way. I need to go to bed, but wanted to give my thoughts on this. Thanks for listening.
