  4. Endswell, We did K12 via a virtual academy for 3 years of schooling. It is a lot of work, especially with several kids all in different grades. After 3 years I found the administration of it (checking in, K-mails, making sure requirements were met, etc.) was too much for me. Doing the lessons with the kids (and I only had 3 of school age at the time) was too much also. I found myself rushing like mad through everything just to get it all done, and the quality of our lessons was poor. I switched gears last school year going back to independent homeschooling. It was a much better experienc
  5. You stole 190 cookies!


    Rules of the game: if you find this (anyone except the cookie thief themselves) then post here to say "I caught the cookie thief! BUT... someone else took 191 cookies from the cookie jar!" That way we know this player has been caught and we'll look on another profile. Next, copy this entire post and paste it onto someone else's profile (player must have more than 100 posts and must have been active in the last month.) Lastly, change the numbers so each increase by one. It will be easier to track that way. Please post your findings in the thread entitled SOMEONE STOLE A COOKIE! Forum Game. Have Fun!

  6. It's OK, don't worry about it. I doubt I'll get it anyway. I want to get my teacher's certificate and eventually work either with the virtual academy, or an alternative school, or maybe the plain 'ol elementary school. I need to set aside for retirement, and it's proven to be very difficult as a small business owner. So, I think a government job will be good in my latter years. No rush. I want to get my kids through homeschooling at least through elementary school. Then, maybe I'll farm out their education in pieces or all the way. :)

  7. So sorry about the wrong email address! :( I hope you get the scholarship despite me. What do you plan on studying?

  8. We're using it for 6th grade this year, but no comment yet. I've just thumbed through it. Anyone else use this? :bigear:
  9. Don't forget: To vaccinate, or not to vaccinate? Do you make your own bread? and What's your schedule like?
  10. These are probably taught by others too, but here are a few I learned from the Ezzo's, which I still remember and use today: Get down at eye level when giving instructions, correction, or praise. Pay attention for times of non-conflict and use them for instruction. Don't forget to praise good behavior. Let their time with good influences outweigh their time with poor influences. Fill up their moral warehouse. One Ezzo teaching I have a hard time with, and which has caused me much trouble over the years is first time obedience. I used to parent for the goal of first time obedience,
  11. I have commented a few times that I am one who has read and gleaned/used some things from TTUAC and the Help Meet book. I've never been a fervent follower of TTUAC, but I have read several of the free newsletters, and I never thought of their materials as totally objectionable. I found a few things harsh, but I dismissed them, and didn't think much more of it. Since all this has happened, and since I've read many of the links posted here and on other blogs/forums, I will no longer read their materials in a state of an open mind. If I do read their materials now, it will be to keep myself a
  12. I had that with my 4th, but it was more than 4 pumps, it would last for about a minute or two. It still happens, and my baby is 2 and 1/2. :confused: My suggestion is to keep your OB updated. Maybe you could log it, and find some kind of pattern, or at least have something to show your doc.
  13. I love this! My favorite part was when she said, "The noise level has once again reached airport level. I say, in an unnaturally calm voice, 'Ben, could you please stop reading to me until I’m finished with Emily’s diaper?'" Oh, how I often use that "unnaturally calm voice". :D
  14. If you want to see the real thing in action with a bunch of little ones, take a look at this video I uploaded on my YouTube channel. It's the one of the children and I doing our "morning meeting". http://www.youtube.com/asmartstart It's a regular mad house, and pretty funny if you notice the children goofing off while I'm just trying to keep my cool and get the day planned out. And, as you will see, I'm a frazzled frizzy haired mess, but we get it done. That's the story of my life right now, and I'm sure it's the story of most of our lives, especially with little ones. :willy_n
