  1. DD is 9 and she really wants to improve her spelling. She just learned to read within the past 6 months. She does have pretty severe ADHD and meds don't work for her, so we are muddling through. We haven't done a spelling curriculum before, mostly because we have been focusing on getting her to read. We have AAS, but is there something else out there that might work for her? If we use AAS, I'm assuming we should pretty much start at the beginning.
  2. A couple of weeks ago, my 13 year old DS was doing such a great job getting his work done. So I decided to take the opportunity to tell him that I was really impressed that he was getting his work done quickly and without complaining. With a totally straight face, he says: I realized that if I get my work done quicker, I can do the other things I want to do. I had to walk away before I said something like: Oh, is that how it works? Actually, I've been telling you that multiple times a day for 13 YEARS!!!!
  3. I know who you're talking about!!!!! Her sister was my department chair when I was a teacher and we stayed good friends after I moved away. I've been following the journey on FB and it hit me pretty hard today, too. Life is so fragile and we just never know what will happen. Sherry
  4. Thank you, everyone! Great suggestions. Intellectually, I KNOW how safe flying is. I KNOW that I am statistically exponentially more likely to get into a car accident. But of course, Anxiety is irrational.
  5. DH and I are finally taking our dream vacation at the end of this month - an Alaskan land and cruise tour. It's for our 15th anniversary and we are leaving the kids at home with grandparents. The problem - I have such anxiety about flying. We live on the East Coast, so we have several flights to get through. It's been several years since I've been on a plane. I really would prefer to not take anything for it - I've taken Xanax in the past and even a small dose knocks me out and leaves me feeling groggy. So what else can I do? Essential oils? I'll try just about anything. DH and I both plan to download lots of shows on our devices. I will have a book or three to read.
  6. You can download a free sample of 3 weeks and get a pretty good idea.
  7. We are doing Biblioplan Medieval this year! Yes, only 3 days. My kids are the following: 4th, 6th, and 8th. We will be using Remember the Days, SOTW, the Timeline, and Maps.
  8. We are doing BP Year 2 this coming year. My kids will be 4th, 6th, and 8th. My plan is to use Remember the Days and Story of the World as our spines. We will add living books for topics that interest us.
  9. Background info: Phoebe is 6, Violet is 3. Both are female calicos and do have their claws. Phoebe is very skittish, but she hangs around the house with us and hides when new people come over. Violet is super friendly and puts up with the kids carrying her around and such. The cats have never loved each other. I'd say they tolerate each other. Yesterday - we left the house for most of the day - about 8 am and we came home around 6 pm. Ever since then, Phoebe has been growling and hissing at Violet. The hissing isn't all that unusual, but she usually does it once and that's it. I have never heard growling like this from her. Ideas? Maybe they got in a fight while we were gone?
  10. My Summer Reading List is a bit out of control: Homeschool Bravely Beyond Behaviors: Using Brain Science and Compassion to Understand and Solve Children's Behavioral Challenges Captivology: The Science of Capturing People's Attention The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma Tweens, Teens, & Triumphs by our very own Farrar!!! Sacred Mundane The Self-Driven Child
  11. This happened 3 miles from my house. I have no words. 😭
  12. Are you flying into Norfolk, by chance? If so, I may be able to pick you up!!!! We have a couple of things going on that day, but if I can, I'd be happy to help.
  13. OK, now that it's the last day, I'm going to get some things - all the History Cards, A Child's Geography, Biblioplan Medieval Timeline, and the state research project/lapbook.
  14. Anyone shopping the sale this year? I’m not seeing anything I’m dying to have. Although, the history cards from Olive Grove Educators look really interesting. Has anyone used them?
  15. Yes, we tried generics of every type that our insurance covered. Also, the dosages we tried were half or less of the lowest dose available. It’s a tricky thing!!! I have questioned the diagnosis - we are currently doing more evaluations to see if there is something else we’ve missed along the way.
