  1. When is it set to be done and available for purchase?
  2. Oh, for History/Bible/English-Literature, you may want to check out My Father's World. It's a Christian Curriculum. My dd used that in 9th grade and loved it! http://www.mfwbooks.com/category/M50/50
  3. :confused: Ummm, really that's a judgment call. TT works fabulously for many, many kids! For us, 2 of my 3 kids deplored Saxon, so we used a different curriculum. I wouldn't "bash" Saxon, though, since I know many who have done well with it also. Yes, thank you! My point with this is that not all curriculums work well for all students. That doesn't make it a bad curriculum necessarily, it just may not work well with a certain child. Keep an open mind, since we can all give you suggestions, but noone here knows your dd like you do, so we can't say what will definitely work or not work! :001_smile: :iagree:
  4. It'd help to know what you got that you didn't like so we know what to recommend. :) As Ellie said, there are many online curriculums that do what you're asking about.
  5. As someone said on the General Board, I'd take care of the tonsils and adenoids first and see how things go with her, maybe retesting her hearing and things before proceding with an exploratory surgery! His jump to surgery kind of scared me too! :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug:
  6. What about her adenoids? My son had "trophy-sized" adenoids that blocked him from hearing (he flat-lined the hearing test and was starting to read lips at 3 years old) and he had constant ear infections. He also had major fluid build-up, as there was no room for it to drain. He had his adenoids removed and tubes in the ears, and he's been fine since. I know you said there was no fluid, but I was just curious about the adenoids.
  7. :iagree: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: to those working through all this. It certainly isn't easy! We never considered homeschooling until right before we started, so it was a big change in plans for us! I'm glad we stuck it out, and am thankful to friends here who helped me get started, and have been so very thankful for the help I've received online here at the Hive!
  8. My younger two used to love to massage my shoulders/neck/back, feet and brush my hair. It was always their idea. As he got older, DS18 thought about massage therapy, but decided against it. DD is interested in being an RN. Both of them had a special way, but dd, especially, had a special touch that others didn't. My mom was a nurse, and she'd come home very tired. I'd rub her feet, and she always told me that it helped her the most when I rubbed her feet than even if my dad did. I did that a lot, and loved helping my mom, but I didn't want to do that for a living. :)
  9. Like others have said, I have LOVED homeschooling! Each of my 3 have been different, and it's been an amazing experience! I wouldn't trade it for the world! We had bad days. We had times we struggled. However, we would have had struggles and bad days whether they were homeschooled or in a school outside the home! I absolutely LOVE that I will NEVER say, "I wish I would've spent more time with my kids" because that would've been nearly impossible! :D Now that they're older, I see the difference it has made for them, and am so thankful I was blessed with the opportunity to homeschool and have my children home with me! It may not work for everyone. I have a friend who cried when talking to me one time, as others had told her she was doing the wrong thing by going back to work and putting her daughter in daycare. I would NEVER tell someone that! That's a very personal choice, and she is a very good mommy! That's what works best for her, and what she chose after much thought and prayer. So for me--loved it, wouldn't want it any other way! For others, whatever works best. Any forcing of it would tend to negate the benefits!
  10. I had no clue, and I'm pushin' old age! If it is scary, that's why I wouldn't know. I don't like scary movies!
  11. :iagree: Praying for you to be able to conceive a healthy one soon!!! :grouphug:
  12. Ohhh, I'm so sorry! I went through this once as well. It's hard! I will be praying for you! Hang in there Hon! :grouphug:
  13. :seeya: :D You braved saying hi to me, even though I wrote oaky instead of okay?! What a friend!!! :lol: :iagree::lol:
  14. Oaky, now I'm totally caught up in this and looking forward to the results of the U/S! :D I really think you should bring all of us along with you! :lol:
  15. Really? I keep seeing dire warnings on the internet, as well, of long lines and therefore crazy long waits. I hope we have your luck and don't run into horribly long lines! That'd save so much time! :001_smile:
