  1. Hi Stella! I love this!! But I always love what you have to say. Great to see you here! I have been in CC more than 10 years now, and felt the same way my first year. I almost didn't come back after the break that first year. I almost quit at the end of the year. It's not for everyone, but I am glad we stayed with it. I have heard a lot of people be critical of CC very openly both within and outside of CC about issues with CC. To answer the OP's question - there are different opinions what what makes an education classical. The classical approach that CC uses is a valid classical approach. It's not the only one, but it is classical. The conversations aren't in the Foundations classroom. It's about engaging in "The Great Conversation" and not about what they do on a single day. And CC started with Challenge first. Challenge is very conversational. I do find it to be both.
  2. A Norwex enviro cloth might take it out. I have used to ge Sharpie off my floors.
  3. We always used a realtor to find our rentals because nearly all the landlords were a pain to work with. No showing and not communicating.
  4. Oh wait you mean the CC cards. Sorry you want the Cycle 1 app
  5. The VP timeline wasn't included in the Cycle 3 app.
  6. I agree with Toni! Get to a practicum and talk to your SM.
  7. We haven't had a problem at all with them.
  8. This is me. I can retain it if I read it but not if you read it to me. My dd is the opposite. She is an auditory learner - she comprehends and retains better listening than reading. I am visual, and I have to see it.
  9. I would call them back and ask. We have never received a call from HSLDA. It could have just been a misdialed number directed at a co-worker.
  10. It's because you are not an expert in doggie obedience. You need to send them to the experts who are trained to train dogs. You can't possibly think that you are able to teach a dog all they need to know about obeying your or being a dog because you don't have a degree or proper training. If you knew more about dog training theory and dogs in general - you know like you get in a classroom with other adult people taught by other adult people, you would be better able to teach your dog to obey. We should leave dogs to those people who learned about dogs from other people. So you really should look all day doggie school after all how will they learn proper dog behavior. They don't just know how to dig, sniff, chew and bark! :tongue_smilie: :001_rolleyes: :rofl:
  11. My phone can act as a hotspot if I pay a $45 a month charge for it. I don't do that although it would be great to have.
  12. There was a Reformed social group on the old site. There isn't a thread on the new site yet that I have seen.
  13. :iagree: In addition to what has been said, here are some good facts for him. 52.6% of all English words come from Latin. 90% of words 3 syllables or more come from Latin. All the Romance languages come from Latin. According to Dorothy Sayers "The best grounding for education is the Latin grammar. I say this, not because Latin is traditional and medieval, but simply because even a rudimentary knowledge of Latin cuts down the labor and pains of learning almost any other subject by at least fifty percent. It is the key to the vocabulary and structure of all the Teutonic languages, as well as to the technical vocabulary of all the sciences and to the literature of the entire Mediterranean civilization, together with all its historical documents."
  14. I have lots! (Not sure how many.) But I inherited them by the boxful (banana boxes) and we will get to them. The kids have looked through everyone single one. They spent weeks going through their cousins books when we first got them.
  15. Agreeing that you can freeze avocados. I usually freeze it as guacamole though.
  16. Well, I am one who LOVES this! There are some amazing trash the dress photos out there. Some I don't care for, but overall I love this tend. I didn't trash my own wedding dress because it never occurred to me. But if I had thought of it, I would have done it at the beach. But I have been part of trashing dresses - it's amazing! It's so much fun. I have had my kids trash their flower girls/jr bridesmaids dresses with beach photos. We have trashed 5 now, and the photos are some of my favorites. I agree that name "trash the dress" doesn't really apply because we actually have never ruined a dress beyond repair. One time, I had a surfer come up and offer me his board for photos! I love those photos. In fact, we used them as a Christmas card that year. After we were done, all of the outfits were cleaned, mended and donated. No permanent damage was done - they were dirty and some decorations came undone but they were in better condition than my niece's who didn't "trash" her dress. My niece just spilled on it during the reception and ruined it. :tongue_smilie:
  17. My lab wouldn't tell me the results, but I learned that they would give me a copy of the lab results paperwork.
