There is no writing in them except for Volume 3 which has a little bit of a scribble on the front, inside cover, and the owner's name written on the front cover.

  13. We're almost through Jacob's Algebra and here's what I assign: Set I is review. I always assign set I (all problems). Set II and Set III go over the same material. I assign Set III (all problems) because the answers are in the teacher's manual. Set II answers are in the back of the student book. Since my son does the work independently, I'd rather him do set III. I always assign Set IV which is the challenge exercise. Sometimes my son gets it on his own, sometimes we have to do it together. I use Set II when my son needs additional review before a test. I use the Master tests made for this series. My son really, really likes Jacobs Algebra and I'm glad we're using it. We'll finish this and move on to Mathematics: A Human Endeavor. It's even fun to talk about how things have changed since it was written. Sometimes I have to explain to my son why the comics are funny.
  14. I liked using Elementary School first. That's what we did with my son last year in 7th grade. Another reluctant writer ;) We then went on to the Middle School level at the end of the year. I think that worked out great. I don't use it as a stand alone program. We alternated WWS with Sentence Composing and that was a good mix for us. I am looking forward to starting the nonfiction writing book as well this year. It's mostly on biographies so it's not quite what I expected but I do think it will still be worth using.
  15. I would love some advice on our current house situation. I'm sure someone will be able to suggest some ideas that I haven't thought of yet. We've had our house on the market for three weeks with only two showings. We lived in our home for 8 years and did so many updates to our home: new windows, standing seam roof, all new floors except for the kitchen (which had gorgeous antique brick), painted throughout, upgraded insulation, put in a heating system (it had electric), new kitchen, three renovated bathrooms, so there really isn't anything left to do but paint the exterior (which will need to be done in couple of years. We're NOT doing it!). Our updates were quality updates: hardwood floors, porcelain tile, 6 burner stove with custom hood, etc. Our market is supposed to be a hot seller's market and I do see a lot of houses (mostly in town) going under contract within a week in all the different price ranges. So now our agent is saying that we priced the house too high and that to show "good value" we should lower the price 10%. I feel that she is trying to say that we need to make sure that the buyer feels like they're getting a good deal. We did interview three agents and the comps were over 100K apart and so we chose a price right in the middle because I didn't want to be too high. Interestingly, the agent did admit that the other houses in our immediate area are also not getting any showings lately either. Maybe everyone is waiting for either a great deal or to buy in town (no inventory in town right now)? There are houses a lot lower than our price and there are houses a lot higher than our price and all of us haven't had a lot of showings. Could anyone suggest some options to consider? Part of me wants to say, yes, we'll lower the price, but I want to change our contract to a 30-day contract. Can I do that? If it doesn't sell in 30 days, then we have the ability to reconsider our options (and even consider a new agent--you would not believe the awful photos she had put with the listing initially--I finally retook photos and sent them to her and her write-up was about 2 sentences. Talk about killing the initial buzz of a new listing!). She really wants us to lower it within the next couple of days because a whole bunch of agents are going to tour the agency's houses in our area on Thursday and she said that if we lower the price that will get those agents to bring people in. Another option would be to leave the price as is and see what happens. We're not in a rush to move. We're only moving to lower our general living expenses which we can afford easily now but we'd rather not ;) We don't need to remain in this expensive town because we don't use the school system and my husband's work commute is now over 45 minutes each way but we're not in a rush. The town we want to move into has a buyer's market right now and lots of inventory so I'm not worried about selling and then having to find housing. It's crazy, but after all the prep and breaking the news to the kids (they really don't want to leave--it's an amazing property for kids--huge field to explore, stream to wander down, pond to swim in. . .), we just ready to be done with this. But 10% is a lot of money and I just wonder if it's to access a larger buyer population rather than waiting to sell the house for what it's worth. Any other thoughts?
