  1. The Giver and Holes were much-enjoyed middle school books for my oldest. Younger Dd12 will probably read them next year for 8th.
  2. No rules but my DDs and I never engage in such behavior around others. (If we do, it's a complete accident.) My dh does occasionally, but then we all glare at him until our displeasure is known.
  3. I wouldn't wear it...but I'm 40+ and overweight. She's young and thin and artsy and quirky. The dress worked...for her.
  4. I'm cracking up over the Bernie memes... https://m.facebook.com/nikki.milcavage/posts/pcb.10158590031820932/?photo_id=10158590029905932&mds=%2Fphotos%2Fviewer%2F%3Fphotoset_token%3Dpcb.10158590031820932%26photo%3D10158590029905932%26profileid%3D1178792682%26source%3D48%26refid%3D28%26_ft_%3Dqid.6920229321300121403%3Amf_story_key.-1037104540245670342%3Atop_level_post_id.940408882473%3Acontent_owner_id_new.157200404%3Aoriginal_content_id.10158590031820932%3Aoriginal_content_owner_id.541840931%3Asrc.22%3Aphoto_id.10158590029905932%3Astory_location.5%3Aattached_story_attachment_style.albu
  5. Yeah, I want something a little *more* than Friendly Bio....but maybe gentler than some of the others. But the options really seem to be either/or for biology (no Goldilocks sweet spot). Also, idk that we'll do any CLEP. Honestly, she'll probably go straight to cc and then transfer to a uni after 2 years...
  6. I love the "snooze for 30 days", but then I forget I did it and suddenly (30 days later) my feed will be flooded with things I missed. I'm always like "whoa!!! What's going on?!?" Then I send them all back to time out.
  7. Lol. DH, my teens, and I were talking about this candle a few weeks ago. We all agreed that Salted Caramel was a better choice for our family...
  8. Haha, so far we've got two "it's fine" votes. Doesn't sound too exciting. 😄 Honestly, with this child, I was initially thinking Friendly Biology with lots of video supplementation...but was having 2nd thoughts re: if it was enough. Modern Biology was a new idea that I just couldn't find much info for.
  9. I've hidden tons of family on FB. My grandfather, MIL. Actually, I've hidden most of DH's extended family, lol. No one has time for that nonsense.
  10. Um...I wash once a week...if I'm on top of things? 😳
  11. Anyone use Holt's Modern Biology text? Memoria Press has plans/guide for it, as well as streaming lecture. I'm in planning mode for next year, for my rising 10th grader. She's doing a mommy-made Botany course this year because I didn't feel she was ready for high school biology. So, Modern Biology -- good, bad, ugly?
  12. I have this issue with my 14yo DD. She's a night owl...and she's sloooow to get moving when she's up. I wake her at 8:30, but it takes an hour before she's ready to start school. We've been trying to adjust her schedule for ages, and it's rough. The irony is that this child used to pop up at 5am every morning. I was so happy when she learned to stay in her room until 7!
  13. Also, if your insurance is good/you can afford this: sometimes (not always) you can get seen by specialists quicker if you go the emergency room route. So if her fingers get worse or you're concerned about waiting, and if you have a good ER nearby (especially one connected to a good children's hospital), I'd try that.
  14. Your observation is accurate. I do believe the higher grades have less grammar, but yep....a whole swath of grammar lessons before the writing lessons.
  15. Does she find it's more common certain times of her cycle? I often have similar stomach issues triggered by fatty/heavier meals, but even more so midcycle and in the week before my period.
