  1. I can't imagine getting sheets for a less common bed size. Getting sheets that don't drive my oldest nuts is hard enough with a common bed size.
  2. We get our kids double beds from the beginning. They work as guest beds when we need them to, and they are long enough for the kids as they grow. Our boys are both supposed to be tall (over the 6'). Single beds can get pretty cramped if you have a boy that's really tall.
  3. I'm a homeschooled homeschooler. I spend a lot of my time hoping and praying that my kids will have better memories of it all then I did. I HATED Saxon with a passion. I'd use a stronger word for it, but I don't think that's allowed on here. I oddly remember grade 7 Abeka history videos rather well. (I liked the teacher's style of doing things) I cheated for numerous years in elementary and was never caught. It wasn't that I didn't know the material, it was that if I got below an 85% on a test, my mom would get really angry, so I would cheat to ensure that I would get 85-90%. I always made sure that I didn't get 100% either. I once got an honest 100% on a test and my mom drilled me and checked everything near me because she was sure I had cheated (that was grade 3). I used to hide my mom's old nursing textbooks under the couch ( often sat on the floor in front of the couch and worked on the coffee table) and I'd pull them out and read from them instead of doing my work when my mom left the room. I was super proud of my ability to cook a full, well rounded meal for everyone by the time I was about 11, and at 12 I was responsible for all the cookies in the house. I swore I wouldn't homeschool my kids.
  4. Unfortunately we do have a few of those nasty, rude, immature people running around the globe acting as representatives of our country. It's shameful. The majority of us do not seem to be so lacking in manners.
  5. I'm kinda floored that there might be people who want to identify by the continent that they live on and not by the country they live in. Americans are identifying by their country name, not by the continent. I'm just waiting for someone to tell me that they are Eurasian next instead of German.
  6. As a Canadian, I always call folks from the U.S. American. I am NOT American. Their country is, after all, called United States of AMERICA, so it makes sense that they call themselves American. Everyone knows who you are talking about if you mention Americans. It's not confusing. USians just feels, looks, and sounds awkward. My best friend grew up in Brazil. She says people from the U.S. are called Americans down there too.
  7. The oldest two are taking a break from their usual math for a bit and doing the Simply Charlotte Mason Pet Store math. I have found them both much, much, much more willing to do math when there seems to be a purpose. My oldest seems to think that he'll be set to open his own business when he's done this. We were floundering with math before. Conceptually he has no problems with math, but it was like pulling teeth every single day. We needed a break. This has been a lovely break. I have recommended it to a couple friends.
  8. I don't have any dogs that will do that now, but my old doberman used to. He is not longer alive, but he would crawl into his bed and push all the blankets off and then adjust them so he could pull them when he went to lay down. It's was a hilariously long procedure.
