  1. Just thought I'd share my free Geography & Cultures Textbook: https://guesthollow.com/guest-hollows-geography-cultures-online-textbook/ I just finished updating it after our new website went live. 🙂 So far the feedback has been really great! Now I'm off to browse the boards. I haven't done that in ages and miss all the discussion! ❤️
  2. Chiming in here quickly. This is on the website: Question: Aren't some of the books too easy for high schoolers? Answer: The spine text A Patriot's History of the United States is a book that is used in some colleges. It is NOT a lower-level book. Using just the spine book, the scheduled videos, and the linked activities covers quite a bit of history. The scheduled books are "frosting on the cake" that help bring topics alive in a way that is engaging and memorable. I do schedule in quite a few graphic novels and some easier fare (amidst some more difficult titles written for adults)
  3. The Kindle version of The Science of Seasons is free until Friday: https://amzn.to/2NxGk8s I wrote an illustrated it. ?
  4. Good idea to separate it into a separate activity book...I will consider that for the future. :-) (And I love reading all the great feedback from the other posters!! Totally made my day.)
  5. I'm glad you haven't changed your icon/avatar - whatever you call it, lol....because that's how I recognize it's YOU. Some of the others have changed theirs so I don't know if it's who I think it is or not. ;-) I'm glad you are still here!
  6. I'm enjoying it as well! I used to wonder what I would do with myself when I was finished, and it turns out I have LOTS to do, and it's finally what I want and not centered around the kids. ;)
  7. The alpine lodge: https://www.amazon.com/PLAYMOBIL-5422-Alpine-Lodge-Playset/dp/B00A30Z1HE I bought so much Playmobil for my kids over the years. I think I was secretly buying it for me, lol...
  8. Yeah, I bought myself a Playmobil set....lol...and then I set it up in my craft room. ;-) I may not have kids anymore, but I still love toys. :laugh:
  9. Just sending you some ((hugs)). My kids are all grown up now, but I sometimes wish I could go back to those snotty 10 year olds and give them a hug. ;-) I think every parent feels like a failure at some point. My advice: Try to avoid power struggles. Allow several choices, so those struggles don't come up as often. Find activities for your ds like Boy Scouts or something where he can have some time to himself with friends in something that is structured. Try reading the book: Yes, Your Teen is Crazy: Loving Your Teen Without Losing Your Mind - Your ds isn't a teen, but the info in the b
  10. I haven't had time to visit the boards much, but I MISS all of the great conversations. I need to hang out more here, even though I'm "retired" from homeschooling. I put about 15 grammar related pictures books on hold at the library for a curriculum I'm working on. Does that count? ;-) Just wondering if anyone else is hanging on, even if you aren't homeschooling anymore. I refuse to leave, lol....
  11. I don't know much about stuttering, but you mentioned anxiety...I sometimes stutter at the beginning of sentences when I'm very upset or anxious. I hope you get some answers and that it's an easy fix for your Ds.
