  1. We're safe. Whole province was hit pretty hard, as well as PEI and NB and now moving to Nfld. Power out all over the province. I'm at one place that has power, to access wifi. Yes, hurricanes definitely come to Maritime Canada, with regularity!!!!! Most of the time, it's post-tropical by the time it gets here, but not this time.
  2. Thank you. It's now upgraded to Cat 2. I can't believe we still have power here. (much of NS doesn't, and Halifax is already a mess - we're 20 min. outside)
  3. Yep, it's here now, Category 1 or 2 in Nova Scotia. Wish us luck as it makes landfall here. We are smack in the middle of the path. I was super stressed yesterday remembering what Hurricane Juan was like here in 2003. Power has blinked, probably will lose it soon.
  4. Ha, I think anyone would get hung up on Don Quixote when trying to learn the process! I get that it's the first book on the novel list, but I gave up on it and tried the process with some shorter books. I was better able to learn the process and then apply it to longer books after some practice. There are also the WTM book logic stage lit. analysis questions you could use, too.

  6. This is such a relief of a feeling, isn't it!! RootAnn, thank you for maintaining the list. I have to say that we don't actually know if dd will attend any post-secondary this coming fall. She now says she is not going to university this coming year, which is fine (long private story I don't want to outline here). But I wanted to add that last acceptance to our list, for the sake of future homeschoolers who may wonder what schools have accepted homeschoolers. Thank you! Keep me posted on your news!
  7. Two more acceptances for my girl - BA program at Mount Saint Vincent University, and Child/Youth program at Nova Scotia Community College. (OP, the "Saint" in Saint Mary's University is spelled out at that school) . (and "thanks" for keeping track of this list!) Yay, to all this year's WTKids!
  8. Thank you! Thank you, Kathy! For everything. I'm going to message you sometime and catch you up.
  9. @8FillTheHeart Thank you! I think of you, too. I still read here occasionally, see your posts, and wonder how you and your family are. Five grandchildren - wow!! Congratulations to you, too! I've been in touch here and there with Jane over the past few years. You, Jane, Nan in Mass, and Kathy in Richmond are my biggest mentors here. I appreciate you all so much! Thank you, and you're welcome! I used to do that, too. I was in awe of and terrified of the high school board; now here on the college board, I'm just tired, lol. (not from the board; just from life) Seriously, thoug
  10. DD just received her first acceptance yesterday, unexpectedly! I called this school last week to ask the assistant registrar some questions (I had talked with him three years ago when ds was going through the application season, and he wasn't very encouraging about admitting homeschoolers [but then admitted ds with scholarships]). I was a bit nervous about talking with him again, but the woman who answered the phone said he was on his way out. She told him why I was calling and next thing I knew, she was saying, "He wants to meet with you and your daughter an hour before our Open House next
  11. I loved reading your entire post - CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! As to what I quoted - WOW! My son sometimes wishes he had applied there for math - he may apply there for grad school. But now, isn't it all a relief to know you didn't mess up?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
  12. I just did this a few weeks ago! Happy 50th to us! :D It was fun - I did pretty much what you are thinking - invited around nine friends I really wanted to celebrate with. I planned food a few months in advance, and made all of us a nice dinner. Two different kinds of spaghetti sauce, noodles, two kinds of cake, ice cream. All homemade (except the noodles. Which I had planned to make, until two hours before start time I had to tell myself there just was no time left, lol - ran to store and bought noodles). A friend volunteered to bring Caesar salad (which I was going to make, but she i
