  1. My 16-year-old will sleep through alarms. I was the same way as an adolescent. My father woke me up every day to go to school throughout high school, so I don't push it. My husband wakes him up at 6 AM as he's slow as molasses and I wake up 45 minutes later to prepare school lunches for him and my youngest daughter.
  2. The Physicians Formula mascaras are most likely available at your local drugstore and are only about $10 or less if you have a coupon. Good luck and let us know which one you like! Another option is to search for "mascara samples" and see if anything satisfactory turns up. I recently overhauled my whole stash of makeup to nontoxic products.
  3. I just very recently (literally a few months ago) began calling my mil and referring to her as mom. I've known her for almost twenty years. I don't call my own mother mom. She's Mamsi, Mami, or Alita, as I'm from a different country originally. My own "mom" doesn't like to be called mom (as in the American "mom"). Thus I feel okay referring to my mil as mom.
  4. I'd get an eyelash curler and use something like Physicians' Formula Organic Wear Natural Origin Bigger! Better! mascara (white case) or Organic Wear Jumbo Lash mascara (green case). I have good luck with those, especially the latter for evenings. For a more natural look, just longer eyelashes, I like Honeybee Gardens' Truly Natural mascara. I'd stick to those aforementioned mascaras for a fifties' look.
  5. My Pals Are Here offers an international edition for 5th and 6th grades. The only consumable part is the workbook, but you could circumvent this by having your student use a notebook. These books are sold at Christianbook.com and Rainbow Resource.
  6.

  7. After being almost done with BFSU 3, next year I'm planning on moving to Conceptual Integrated Science Explorations, which is recommended for grades 7-9. I found the Conceptual Academy, which provides videos and other resources to help you along. Scroll down to see the info for the above-mentioned book.
  8. Resurrecting this thread - I'm considering an all-in-one English Writing & Grammar program and I like the looks of Voyages in English 7 (2011 edition). Has anybody used this? Any and all opinions welcome, please. Even if the writing wasn't used, I'd like to hear your opinion. Thanks!
  9. I agree, Farrar. Ds has been getting attached to these characters. They're like extended family.
  10. Oh yes, and The Canterbury Tales are by Geraldine McCaughrean, not the original one by Chaucer!
  11. Thank you for the great advice, Mamas! I remember I read Lord of the Flies in high school and I've never forgotten it. I'll double check on Bronze Bow and modify the Literature selections tomorrow. Goodnight!
  12. My DS will be turning 12 in early September. Although he enjoyed Books 1-6, he hasn't finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows yet as he said it was too emotional for him. I appreciate that he knows his limits and that he feels comfortable letting me know. This is my Literature read-aloud list for this year. We pause and discuss, and once a week I ask questions. It looks very short as we have lots of historical fiction and nonfiction he's reading as well. Also, we may not get through all the books, but we still have 7th grade ;) The Bronze Bow The Eagle of the Ninth My Side of
  13. Congratulations! These are so pretty! I agree, they do look much better than the Erin Condren IMHO. The only reason I didn't go with PP is that I needed more space to write, and hours for appointment already included. Otherwise, what a good-looking, customizable planner :)
  14. I have recently bought a Franklin Covey planner - can't wait for it to get in! My preference is for ring-bound as I already have an FC Classic leather cover, but here are all the Franklin Covey planners that are wire-bound and ready to begin on July 1st: http://franklinplanner.fcorgp.com/store/buy/Weekly/cat960012/categoryfacet.jsp?_DARGS=/store/browse/categoryfacet.jsp.4_AF&_dynSessConf=-2468889206598424260&trail=SRCH%3Acat960012%3A8222%3AClassic%3A8226%3AWire-bound%3A10250%3AJul+2015+-+Jun+2016&_D%3Aqfh_ft=+&qfh_fsr=true&_D%3Aqfh_fsr=+&qfh_rct=0157984059&_D%3A
  15. Cary Elwes and Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones. Later I also had a crush on Pierce Brosnan's James Bond. One more.. how could I forget? I was 13 when I was crushing on one of the Menudo members - Robert Avellanet. I even got to meet him briefly :svengo: :tongue_smilie:
