  1. I skimmed. If there was some mention about gifs, I missed it. No worries. I won't crash your party. ^_^
  2. It's JoJosMom's fault. She wanted to be amused. And I was bored. Here's more: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/a9/db/77/a9db779efd1c6e440e6594d0317b9711.jpg http://a.fod4.com/images/GifGuide/dancing/300sw047yusw9.gif https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/6b/32/ae/6b32aef0745fc6ee5364198c1cdecc06.jpg https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/9a/b8/8c/9ab88c5e1400616333ef94e3e4e1367a.jpg https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/c7/31/ea/c731ea00fd3e905d654afcc37d3026e9.jpg
  3. Aw. I thought since it was a publicity photo-op, it would be okay. Thanks for the heads up.
  4. I was on my way to the airport to pick someone up, just to find they're about 3 hours delayed. So now I want amusement, too. Here, I'll start: https://giant.gfycat.com/CloudyRingedAlaskanmalamute.gif
  5. I didn't get the impression Quill saw it as a "big deal," but humorous in the absurdity of the situation. If I thought this was meant to be a serious cry for help, I couldn't get past noodles for Thanksgiving Day dinner. I mean, lolwut?
  6. How can you resist the temptation to one-up her? Quill: That sounds great. I was thinking of preparing either A, B, or C. Please let me know what you would like me to bring. SIL: Please bring A. Quill: Thank you. I was thinking of broiling, baking, or sauteing A. Please let me know which preparation suits your menu the best. SIL: I think baking is the best for that dish. Quill: Thank you. I was tempted to add between 1 and 2 teaspoons of minced garlic. Please let me know how much garlic to add. ad nauseum.

      Too true. tfs.

  8. It depends on the purpose. I have children who have been "unschooled" for a while now. One studied at the dining room table with the Teaching Texbook open in preparation for classes in the fall. One learned that understanding chemistry requires an understanding of these concepts. One is learning algebra simply because it explains the technology he's interested in. These are just our experiences, but I offer them as examples of how math information can be learned outside the conventional style of lessons on a schedule. :)
  9. If he hates anything academic, I'd encourage you to consider holding this off for a while. Eventually he'll find the need to know mathematical concepts (I'm sure he'll pick them up in computer sciences), and classes are a particularly convenient way to learn these things. More importantly, when he decides what he wants to do with his life, he'll probably conclude himself that taking classes at the local community college is the most expedient and convenient way to reach his goal. The role of the parent of the unschooled kid is to facilitate learning opportunities, as opposed to schedule them f
  10. What does he like to do with his time? The reason I ask is because unschooling isn't an education model to get into college. It's a learning style to prepare for a satisfying life independently and autonomously, if that makes sense. Often college is part of that route, but not necessarily. If college is the goal in and of itself, that will make a difference in how to proceed. Also, you might find some local/state unschoolers to ask because Dodd's page is not only out of date, it's not specific to your region.
