  1. Happy birthday to Emily! I can't the time has passed so quickly. I hope Emily knows that an entire community anticipated and celebrated her arrival, and she'll always be special to us :). Thanks, Patty, for pointing me to this thread. I love this place and all the memories and friends I've made here!
  2. Susan, I hope that seeing so many supporting you, and seeing all of us old timers who heard about this and came back for a moment to support you, makes it crystal clear to you what a special, beautiful thing you created when you created these boards and your resources. To this day, I talk fondly of the diverse, interesting, smart women I've met because of you, and how rich and interesting my home school journey was as a result. I met you personally the summer before my daughter began "Kindergarten", and have depended on your advice and all my "imaginary" friends from the WTM boards throughou
  3. HI SUSAN!!! So nice to come here and see you and everyone else! (P.S. I am secretly planning a trip to the B&B as a graduation present to myself. :))
  4. I had nothing to pull down, but wanted to report in anyway and say hi to all! For anyone who remembers me, my daughter graduated and is now at college, I am working full time and have returned to school to finish up my accounting degree. I'm really sorry and extremely disappointed you're going through this, Susan. Wish I could do something more to help you. Warmest regards, everyone! Robin in Tx Long time BooKer

  7. I have a rising 11th/12th grader and want to switch to this program from R&S. What do you recommend? I don't understand the difference between the graded levels and the complete course. I am also afraid to forge ahead without at least an answer key.
  8. Thank you for the book recommendation.. it is on it's way!! :) Robin
  9. Hi Lisa, we did end up getting the Oxford. Success!! My hope is that we'll have a good enough time to want to continue beyond these initial few readings. Thank you... yes, our year is off to a decent start. Only two more years left. Amazing how time flies. I don't know if I'm happy or sad :/ Take care, Robin
  10. Thanks everyone! I purchased the Oxford books for Hamlet and McBeth and so far so good.... dd loves them... she's taking her time to slowly read and take it all in. I knew I could count on you guys! (am searching for the Folger's series, too). Thanks again, and Hi everybody! Robin
  11. This is a required research project for the one day a week classical program my daughter attends. It has to be a probing question, accompanied by a hypothesis, supportive of 40 hours of research, with a conclusion as to whether or not thehypothesis was proven correct by the research. The teachers apparently like it a lot when you come to a different conclusion after conducting your research. We haven't come up with anything that is particularly interesting. Any ideas, oh hive mind? Robin
  12. Anybody want to take a shot at explaining that to me in layman's terms? I grasp it, but not well enough to explain it. Which is the same as not understanding it very well. Thanks, Robin
  13. If not, how do you tackle unfamiliar words? Thanks for any input, Robin
  14. Robin in TX stole 125 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 126 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 type in red so that the numbers 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!
