  1. Korean Beef Tacos. Everyone in my family loves it and it so easy.
  2. This website has tons of freezer to crockpot dump recipes. She has the printable recipes plans for the recipes and shopping lists. Also, it is healthy stuff. Lots of veggies and no canned soups. This is a link to a page with lots of plans, but she shares recipes almost daily, so be sure to look around on her blog. Joy
  3. I have ordered from this company. The aprons are good quality and really cute. They often have good sales. There might even be a Groupon.
  4. We went today and had a very enjoyable meal with some friends. Joy
  5. There actually is a classical latin school called Cair Paravel in Kansas and their mascot is the Lions. Also, in Nebraska, there used to be a mental health facility named Rivendell. I think the name has changed though. Just some fun facts that came to mind while reading your post. :) Joy
  6. Where did you get it fitted at? Thanks, Joy
  7. Hunter, Thank you so much for your insights. It leaves me with a lot to ponder. I am schooling mainstream students. The are not brilliant, but all excel in their own ways. I am attracted to your experiment because of the simplicity. We use a couple different math programs (Saxon and TT) and I have resources that I use for grammar. I am mostly interested in page 2 with all the literature/history/science selections. Again, thank you for sharing your work. Joy
  8. I have been looking at your rainbow curriculum. I find it intriguing. I have a couple of questions. I had printed off version 9.8 and now version 12. I was comparing them and I am interested in knowing what criteria you use for adding/removing/placing books. For instance, I noticed that "Last of the Mohicans" and "Silas Marner" was in the Gold level Novels of 9.8 and has been replaced by "Les Miserables", Robinson Crusoe", and "Scarlet Letter" in 12.0. I am not questioning those choices in particular, just wondering how you are determining what is best for each level because I see lots of changes between versions. Also, is each level a year? How would I determine where to place a student? Are you using this/planning to use this with actual students or is it just a theory? I really admire the exhaustive work that is going into this project. I have been mulling over how I could implement it with my own children. Thanks for any information about the thought process that is going into this you would be willing to share. Joy
  9. When I heard about this story on the news, the anchor was saying how incredible this escape was. He was almost making them sound like heroes that they managed to escape saying how brilliant they were, etc. I really thought he was a little too congratulatory.
  10. Here is a link to a facebook group that has tons of recipes in the files and a lot of helpful hints. The lady who owns the group sells reconditioned vitamix's, but you don't have to have bought one from her to join. I didn't. Everyone is really nice and helpful. HTH, Joy
  11. 21,451. I hardly ever delete emails. :auto:
  12. This same exact thing happened to me, except they used gas to knock me out after I started screaming when they cut into me. I told the doctor I could feel things and the anesthesiologist (had to look it up) :) said "You'll feel some pressure" :eek: Joy
  13. Have you looked at Notgrass? It is very independent and includes a literature and textbook combo approach. There is almost no teacher planning. You have to have the books available and grade the work. It counts as Bible/literature/history credits. HTH, Joy
  14. I taught a class using this book where you make a model of the body. We would read a book/do an activity based on the body part and then color/cut out the body part and build the body. Read and find out books were a great series to supplement with. It was very hands on and the kids had a really nice project to show for it at the end of the semester. I think we did it in about 11 weeks. I did it with K-3rd graders. Joy
  15. My first c-section wasn't an emergency. I had a spinal and when they started cutting, it hadn't taken. When I started screaming, they immediately put the mask over my face and put me under. All I remember is them telling my husband "Sir, you'll have to leave" and the mask over my face and "10, 9, 8 ..." This was almost 22 years ago and I went on to have 5 more, but it was pretty traumatic. Joy
