    Duggars are back on TV

    I have no dog in this fight, but I'm not sure what you're getting at here. It's not like the K education situation is exemplary or anything. Didn't the younger ones basically drop out of high school? I'm embarrassed that I know that little sliver. I mean, it's so much more acceptable to go their "career" route? I'd rather have neither, TBH. But whatever.

    Weighing yourself

    First thing in the morning. Actually, often in the wee hours of the morning, since I have insomnia and sometimes eat breakfast around 4-5 am and then try to sleep a little more. After a bathroom trip, before even one bite of food. So weird.

    I can't believe I remembered how to log in...

    Denise!!! You are one of the ones I've missed the most. I've been a little more scarce lately, but I will definitely stick around to see your update.

    Another surrogacy case in the news

    Are you comfortable with her being forced into an abortion?

    ..

    We are introverts too. I really like our church, but DH and I feel so much more comfortable just going to service and not trying to "fit in" in a Sunday School class.

    Best Lesson plans for Apologia General?

    The schedule in the Student Notebook is what we have been using as well. I bought from My Father's World, so it included their schedule, but theirs is a 4-day schedule, so it's a heavy load. The notebook schedule is 5-day, which is easier for my slowpoke, busy kid.

    6th grade science - WWYD?

    I showed her both online last night. I'm going to end up owning the MFW either way, so when I order it next month, she'll look it over in person.
  9. This is sort of a s/o to the 6th grade planning thread. I'm torn on what to do for 6th grade science for my younger daughter. Give her one more year of "easy" science - which would be MFW 1850-Modern (it looks like a lot of random experiments?) or start ramping things up a bit and doing Apologia Chemistry/Physics. She will almost 100% do Apologia General Science in 7th grade. I will also get her input.

    s/o boys too old for women's room

    Yes, I would give it equal weight. I think it's important to respect what a child is and isn't comfortable doing. And yes... especially girls. As a PP already noted in response to this, I would likely hold up a towel for the 4 year old girl in that case.

    2016-2017 6th grade plan

    Is my kid the only one not in advanced math? :huh:
  12. Rebecca loves to cook and bake. She's obsessed with trying to perfect macarons, but we also let her make pies, cakes, cookies, and some simpler dinner things. She could probably cook just about anything with an average level of difficulty. Sylvia is the baby of the house, which means she usually tries to get someone else to make her PB&J or toast. She can boil water, make instant oatmeal or hot cocoa/cider, and brown ground beef/turkey. She can also heat things in the microwave if you tell her how long. This is progress.

    s/o boys too old for women's room

    Exactly. My girls would NOT want to be changing in front of any boys their age. TBH, they don't even want to change in front of each other half the time. Girls deserve respect for what they do and don't feel comfortable with.

    2016-2017 8th grade planning

    You guys are not nice! First I get hit with the 6th grade thread, now you are all making me acknowledge that I will also have an 8th grader! MFW 1850-Modern - art, music, Bible, history Saxon Algebra 1 with DIVE Apologia Physical science with student notebook Rod & Staff grammar 8 CLE reading 8 IEW Bible-based writing CLE Home Ec. 1, continued from this year 2 Progeny Press lit guides - Fahrenheit 451 and Screwtape Letters Thinking about foreign language - whether to start in 8th or wait until 9th. Need something for logic - she will have completed Thinking Toolbox and Fallacy Detective. Around 20 hours in the gym per week... hopefully training L8, but she's injured right now, so I don't know. :(

    2016-2017 6th grade plan

    Oh me, oh my... my youngest will be a 6th grader! MFW 1850-Modern (history, science, Bible, art, music) * Not 100% sure I'll use that science though. I'm torn between one last year of "light" science or buckling down and using Apologia Chemistry/Physics. Rod & Staff grammar 6 and spelling 7 CLE math and reading 6 IEW Bible-based writing A Reason For Handwriting F (6th grade) Exploring the World of Geography 7-8 Thinking Toolbox, along with more Perplexors, if I can keep her in them (she runs through them like water and already does C-level) I'm also going to put her in a computer course, probably the YouthDigital Minecraft Mod 1 class. She can already type almost as well as I can. Children's choir and lots of independent artsy toy creations.
