  1. Sorry to hijack the thread... coming out of lurkdom to compliment your post. :iagree: And to give my 2 cents in that based on the same discussion with my parent before going on to college, I made the choice to get an education without sky-high debt. Once I graduated and began teaching, I quickly paid off my remaining $25K debt with my first year's income while we lived on my spouse's income. Then we switched and did the same to eliminate his $20K debt. That was back in 1993. No need to risk our future on a student loan debt. /hijack over
  2. Thanks! Is this the website your son used? http://www.instantcert.com/college.php4
  3. Hello All! I originally posted this in the College Board, but would love advice from those who have done CLEP. I now am working f/t as ds is attending college locally. DS is a special needs student who was homeschooled from 3-12 grades. He just completed his first semester of college with great grades. :hurray: Thanks to his Advisor from the Office of DIsabilities for all of her help! When ds was being homeschooled, he resisted the idea of taking the CLEP exam in high school. Now, that he has completed his first semester... well, of course he is interested in taking a test to avoid

  5. Well, I'll be the blunt one and simply ask… how much does this set one $$ back? Ahem, that is, to "re-arrange" the bOOks?? Curious minds want to know… :D

    Unfortunately, the school counselor was a mandated reporter and called it in to (I would suspect) CPS. It sounds like either a police officer or the CPS agent authorized the 72 hour hold based on what they saw at the school - leading up to the ride on the ambulance. I'm sorry to hear this happened. The parent had to have been so upset. :grouphug:
  7. Correct. I am trained in the OG method since 1996 via Spalding International. And used it for many years as a public schoolteacher and homeschooler with my special needs son who has Severe Dysgraphia. (Spalding has 5 levels of certification from tutor through executive trainer indicating extent of training.) It is very intensive training and the program can burn out some students who learning modalities are not suited for the rigor. However, I have seen much personal success with it with ESL and Dyslexic/Dysgraphic students.
  8. What about the Maisie Dobbs Mystery series?
  9. :iagree: :iagree: :iagree: I would never recommend a log cabin for a beginner. Yellow Brick Road is a classic and very easy for a mother/daughter project with fat quarter fabric over a weekend. They can take the completed top and later layer it for basting and then quilting. I was also thinking the 9 patches could be saved with a seam ripper and re-done. Why not make them into a pillowcase and then move on to another project? http://www.favequilts.com/Quilted-Pillows/How-to-Make-a-Patchwork-Pillow/
  10. :iagree: We were landlords for a 4-plex in a really nice area of North Dallas and we never had a problem with our tenants (2 out of the 4 units) who were Section 8 renters. The 2 Section 8 renters were both vetted with a background/credit/criminal check and their jobs were vetted as well by us to be legit. Both ladies were single moms and were the nicest ladies. Their kids were no problems and the reason they chose to live in our "yuppie" area was the fact our local school district had a magnet school their kids attended. I did not blame them one bit. Their units (#1 and #2 units in ou
  11. Here is the update. Student allegedly recanted the ebola story. http://fox5sandiego.com/2014/10/16/no-ebola-at-southwestern-college-officials-say/
  12. It is more than that... your face is blue for up to a week. Mine was about 4 and a half days. My friend's face was up to 6 days. LOL :blushing: Don't plan on leaving the house!
  13. Back when we had $$ and I stayed at home - sure. I started with a basic chemical peel at the local day spa. Then went to a local plastic surgeon who did the Obagi regimen with me for over 1 year. Along with Obagi, I did laser treatments at a day spa and man... my face was fah-bu-lous!! Now, that son is in college and homeschooling is over... I work for peanuts. But I use this product and it is wonderful for zapping those zits and keeping your pores clean. This sounds bad, but the burn does not bother me and I usually let it seep in my skin overnight. Then in the morning, I rinse and to
  14. Would she be interested in going to graduate school to earn a (teaching) credential to specialize in Art Therapy for Special Ed programs?
  15. :iagree: My in-laws did the same thing for our inheritance. And they made sure my son inherited funds for college via a 529 account in a Special Needs Trust that has a trustee. You do not need the permission of the mother. Just the legal names of the children and last place of residence for a lawyer to verify who they are and track them down. My son inherited a vacation home in the trust's name with the trustee taking care of the monthly/yearly costs from the account. One thing I need to add if the OP's husband wants to, is they can set up a college 529 account in the children's na
