  1. Thanks all! It gives us some ideas to look for.
  2. Thanks, for ideas. Her local community college doesn't have it just the university. She was on the lookout for something online, cheaper, etc that she could work and do in the evenings.
  3. My 20 yr old dd is working full time but is interested in graphic design. She just has a vague knowledge so far and is assuming she would need to do it online. So if you just wanted to get your feet wet and figure out a little more about the degree and pick and choose a few classes, is there any classes, online colleges, etc you would recommend?
  4. If looking for a shorter, one month one, check out a new one by Tara Barndt on Amazon working through Philippians. Short but not fluffy.
  5. They all really did pile on you didn't they? One of the reasons I quit posting here but occasionally read things. You sound like an amazing mom. Don't let the pile on discourage you.
  6. Just encouraging you that we did this for our son. He is still using it as he goes to school but it looks like it will work out well. He has two roommates and they are all able to pay around $200/month less in rent than any thing else out there. We think we will sell at a profit but even if we don't the low rent for these years will make it worth it. The only issues have been expecting him to be the grown up and take care of all the bills etc and he's had a few not so grown up moments. Good training for him though!
  7. Our son had this. About every week on schedule from the time he was three. Took several years to diagnose. Giving him ibuprofen as soon as the headache helped. Using ametryptolene (sp?) eventually helped break the cycle and he grew out of the worst of it at puberty. He still has some migraines but more typical. They told is that females tend to be more hormonal related.
  8. We just had to say goodbye to a baby we had for 10 weeks - so hard!
  9. The silicone ones they use for swimmers. Blocks just about every noise out!

  11. Economics in a Box looks like it has about 30 different clips from him. I can't find a good list with out typing each one out but I wouldn't be surprised if it is the same videos you are thinking of. It has been several years since we used it and I'm having a little trouble seeing where they are even scheduled in but I'm sure could be used along side if they aren't specifically scheduled. Maybe someone else knows more than I.
  12. I'm not familiar with what you are talking about but we did Economics in a Box that uses Stossels DVD's. It also uses some other books and has questions for every chapter and extra writing assignments etc that were optional. I felt it was at least 1/2 credit. We like it a lot!

  15. Check out college confidential. It isn't a scam per se but is not usually worth it. You pay $50 and the statistics show that very few get scholarships and it isn't viewed too highly on resumes etc.

  18. "What did you Expect" by Tripp. A very, very good marriage book! http://www.amazon.com/What-Did-You-Expect-Redesign/dp/1433530783/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1421173644&sr=8-1&keywords=what+did+you+expect
  19. I haven't used version 2 but like the layout of version 1. The work isn't done on the computer and I think that works much better for proofs etc.
  20. The new LTOW is much clearer in lay out. It is easier to wrap your mind around the implementation. I really like LTOW.
  21. I'm in the process of selling these and just think I realized that mine is probably Alg I and II. Is that right? My son really did not like them and it has been about 3 years since we touched them. The subtitle "A Combined Course" should have clued me in earlier I guess. Thanks!
  22. Montana has had below 0 and we might get over 10 today . . .
  23. We had a different name on a transcript sent to state university and they made us resend it with the words Homeschool on it. I have since heard of several people on this board having that requirement.
