  1. My non-mathy daughter took Hon. Physics 1 with Jester as a sophomore. She loved it. I was really surprised! My son is taking the same thing this year as a freshman, concurrently with geometry. It has really worked out well for both of them. My daughter's sequence ended up being biology (Landry), physics 1, hon. chemistry, and now AP biology. She really enjoyed physics 1 and chemistry.
  2. My daughter also ended up with Colvin for Rhetoric 1 and we have been pleasantly surprised (though M. Vierra will always be one of her favorites, which is funny because she hated him for the first 4 weeks). Looks like my son will have Colvin for Logic 2 because Vierra's Logic 2 sections conflict. I am good with that. I'm amazed that there are 3 or 4 sections of Logic 2 and only one Latin Readings. Aaarrrgh. I mean I know why, but it's frustrating.
  3. We love Vierra. My daughter had him for GC 4. He challenged her in a good way. My son hopes to take him for GC 4 next year. I wish he could do Logic 2 with him, but there are class conflicts. I would say Mr. Vierra is deinitely in the top echelon of Wilson Hill teachers.
  4. She is one of my daughter's all-time favorite teachers. My daughter is NOT a math/science student, but Dr. Bailey is a great teacher, and she did very well in the Hon. Chem class last year. My son will be taking her next year.
  5. Has anyone had a child in a Wilson Hill course with her? What do you think?
  6. I am conflicted about vaccines, but I do vaccinate my children, after initially going through an anti-vax stage with my older kids. I decided to vaccinate gradually because of several reasons. 1) I personally know three people (two were twin brothers) who got chicken pox as adults. One died, and two spent several weeks in the hospital in artificially induced comas. Some older non-vaxing friends of mine had their kids catch the cpox on purpose, and several of their teenagers ended up with very bad scarring. They were very sick kids. Chicken pox was going around the homeschool community, so I
  7. And I've known lots of modern, young, hipsters wearing torn jeans who looked down on their grandmas with their "church lady" hats because the old people just don't "get it" and weren't therefore as spiritual as themselves. They place all blame for the church's problems on the old people or long time Christians and never examine their own hearts for pride of a different sort. Hypocrisy can grow in all sorts of odd places. We are none of us immune from the temptation of pride.
  8. It does not follow that one should clean the inside and ignore the outside, either. That is a type of gnosticism that says the material world is unimportant. God placed great importance on "glory and beauty" when building his temple and dressing his priests. He plans to give us all beautiful white robes in heaven. Jesus wore an expensive, seamless garment himself. Jesus also lambasted the Pharisees after they criticized His disciples for not washing their hands or cups. Do you really think He is against general cleanliness? No, He is making a point about the ridiculousness of being filt
  9. I have a friend who is looking for a geometry curriculum to follow on Foerster's Algebra. The young man has Asperger's, and has found Foerster's to be exactly to his liking. His mom is afraid Jacobs', which is what is traditionally recommended, would be too wordy. This young man is a pretty literal thinker, and I think Foerster's straightforward explanations have worked well for him. Any ideas? What about Lial's?
  10. You are presenting a false dichotomy. Either dress nicely and be hypocritical, judgmental, and prideful; or dress casually and be none of those bad things.:glare: Most people who dress up for church do it out of a sense of humility, and would never dream of judging someone because they truly couldn't afford a dress, or were new and didn't know better. We can pray in the shower, too, but surely you wouldn't suggest showing up naked? Or in a bikini? Or a clown suit? There are some things appropriate at one's home or in private, that are not appropriate for corporate worship in front o
  11. Same here...though I DO sometimes wear my nice, "dressy" flip-flops, mainly because I have foot issues. Not my first preference, for sure. Most dress shoes rub my feet in the wrong places. so I figure my sparkly flip-flops are dressier than Birkenstocks.:D
