  1. Hi there! It's been quite a few years since I've visited the forums as we sent everyone to public school for a while, but now DD13 is back home again and homeschooling with me (as of last year) and so I thought I should reintroduce myself again. My husband and I are homeschooling one for 8th grade-- DD13. ODS is graduated now. DS16 is going into 11th in public school and very happy there. DS10 is in public school for now, doing 5th grade work, but will likely come home again in the next few years. I am back on the forums looking for suggestions and ideas for DD's last middle school year! Plus, I'll need to start thinking about how to do high school in PA. I've never had to do it before and it makes me nervous. Thanks for having me back!
  2. I still feel that my husband of nearly 14 years is the perfect man for me. 💗 Sent from my VS985 4G using Tapatalk
  3. I would love to know what happened with the purple pencil too!! Sent from my VS985 4G using Tapatalk
  4. Are they officially out now? Still thinking about you, OP! Sent from my VS985 4G using Tapatalk
  5. I love my Contigo. It lasted a year before the lid broke. I contacted the company and got a replacement lid for FREE. The beautiful thing still works two years running (so 3 now). My coffee stays warm from around 730 when I fill out through to about noon when I tip it back for one last desperate sip. No leaks. Sent from my VS985 4G using Tapatalk
  6. See. Now I'm glad I said no. Lol. They sent you $8? Such a silly thing to do. I don't get why they thought that would make people participate. Guilt, maybe? Sent from my VS985 4G using Tapatalk
  7. They sent us a letter in the mail asking us to complete a survey over the phone and included an actual dollar as the bribe to get us to do it. I still said no when they called. Sent from my VS985 4G using Tapatalk
  8. I was wondering about updates on this too... Sent from my VS985 4G using Tapatalk
  9. We had a door to door beef jerky salesman at our door once. He even had a backpack full of jerky with price tags on them that were lower than what he was charging... Sent from my VS985 4G using Tapatalk
  10. We have 4 Samsung galaxy tablets here. 3 of the 4 are 3+ years old and still working. They all have a slot to add memory. We like them. Sent from my VS985 4G using Tapatalk
  11. Dh and I were on a date a few years ago and there was a family at the next table. The husband was extremely loud so we heard his entire side of the conversation. He insisted that his feet don't stink because he doesn't wash them and that people who have stinky feet only have them because they use soap on their feet. He said that the soap gets trapped in your toes and makes your feet smell bad. He went on and on about his feet for at least twenty minutes. Dh and I were dying. Lol.

  12. Any updates? I agree with all of the other posters. 6 is much too young to be outside unsupervised and to be hanging out with 13-14 year olds. Her mom needs to deal with it. Sent from my VS985 4G using Tapatalk
  13. There's laminate throughout our house. We moved in a year ago and it had been here for awhile already before that. It still cleans up beautifully and had held up under our family's heavy use. We love it. Sent from my VS985 4G using Tapatalk
  14. Tracfone has options on Amazon for $5. Just check that it will work in your area. You can buy 60 minutes that are good 90 days for $20. Tracfone typically doubles or triples the minutes too. Sent from my VS985 4G using Tapatalk
  15. I would love to be a literary agent or a book editor. Sent from my VS985 4G using Tapatalk
  16. Oh goodness. She sounds ridiculous. I'm sorry you're dealing with this! Hopefully she backs off now. :( Sent from my VS985 4G using Tapatalk
  17. So did you get it back?? Sent from my VS985 4G using Tapatalk

  19. My teacher read it aloud to me and my class in third grade. In fact, I read it so many times that my copy is ragged now (he gave it to me for Christmas in third grade when he found out how much I loved it). I adore it. It was perfect for that grade. But as others have mentioned, Dahl does use some mean names and says stupid a lot in the story.
  20. DS6 is first grade this year. He will finish up or current curriculum for this year. Over the summer: Tons of outside time, lots of good books plus a summer reading program. 2016-2017 Plans: Math: MUS Beta History: SOTW2 with activity guide and extra fun literature Reading: Good books at his level Phonics: EtC6-8 Spelling: word lists from EtC6-8 Handwriting: undecided Science: This will be through our co-op. I'm hoping Apologia Astronomy. We'll see. Gym: co-op class Art: co-op class Music: He is on the kids worship team at our church. I don't think I've missed anything...this is, of course, subject to change. ;) Sent from my VS985 4G using Tapatalk
  21. The OP specifically stated that they were women's leggings. I didn't know that meggings were a thing but I would like to assume that meggings would have a bit more, ahem, support in all of the right places if you catch my drift. ;) And by the way, the OP also asked what we would do if it was our own child. I am telling you what I would do with MY boys. Though I can't picture any of the three wanting to wear leggings unless MDS wore them with shorts I suppose...I could see him doing that. I would, however, insist he buy them in the men's/boy's department and wear shorts over them to cover his boy bits. I am in the "leggings/meggings are not pants" camp. ;)
