  1. If you are in uniform you have to wear the uniform issued head covering when you are outside. At least that is the rule in the US military.
  2. Okay I have been lurking for a few days now...but finally decided to weigh in. As some of you know I have entered the workforce again. ( I love my new HR position :)) I took advantage of my work resources and network to ask this questions. I have yet to hear anyone say anything negative about BJU. I work for a globally known company and am on a committee with HR reps from several other large companies. I asked their opinions etc... No one admitted to having a bias against them. I asked our hiring manager and she did a quick search and we have 10 grads of BJU in our company (I am sur
  3. That is what I thought! DS will be attending 4 classes in September at the local CC. My friend said that I was no longer considered homeschooling.
  4. I picked this one! http://www.kiyonna.com/plus-size-clothing/Customer_Favorites/14082202 Thanks for all the help.
  5. A friend and I have a small disagreement. If you homeschooled since the beginning of your child's education and now as a Junior you enroll them in the local CC for duel credit are you still homeschooling? Let assume a majority of the class work for that year will come from the CC. TIA :lurk5:
  6. Things have changed in our life and I am going back to work. I start March 26th. DS is 16 and a sophomore so he pretty much does his work on his own anyway. I am excited/scared to be going back into the work force after being out for 7 years. Please give me any suggestions and tips you may have. I will be working full time, 8-5 Tuesday through Saturday. My DH works Mon- Friday (nights). We are considering a more intense co-op (Mon-Wed) so DS won't be alone all that much or taking classes at the community college as duel credit. Please don't bash me for going back to work. It is s
  7. :iagree::iagree::iagree::iagree: Keep in mind that Speedo runs small, competition suits are tight for a reason, and to rinse, rinse,rinse every day and let dry. Swim outlet has grab bag suits that are very reasonable. DS is in the pool 6 days a week most of the year (we do short course and long course:svengo:). I buy him 3 cheap suits from there at the beginning of the year and they pretty much last all year.
  8. My son is taking AP US government with Patrick Henry Prep. He had to do a 6 page book report. He was not allowed to have it edited by anyone. :svengo: Okay fine! He needs to really learn to edit on his own anyway. After he turned in the book report, I reviewed it. I was horrified! It was terrible. I would have not accepted it. If I had it would have been a failing grade. I explained my frustration to him and told him he would likely fail the paper and possibly fail the class. Well the grade is in and he got an 86. :confused::confused: This paper was terrible! It had grammatical mi

  10. I have been in you spot so many time since I took over as the director of our Co-op. :toetap05: To me a deadline was a deadline... It seems relatively simple to drop a check in the mail on time. Why couldn't people get it together? However God humbled me in a way that I did not expect. Life happened to me. In an 18 month period my son had a major, life changing injury to his hand. This lead to multiple surgeries, countless OT visit and more medical bills than I could imagine. My dad had a heart attack, slipped into diabetic coma and had an amputation. My MIL started declining rapidl
  11. I don't read anyones blog (even my friends who I am supposed to be reading :D), I don't blog because well I am pretty boring. FWIW I am googling Ann Volkamp :tongue_smilie:
  12. Mississippi, then Louisana, after that Maine, next Ohio, and lastly Indiana (which is more racially prejudiced than Mississippi :confused:) Now if you want to leave the country I would rank it Italy, Germany, Austria, Spain but keep in mind I hated living in Spain so I maybe a little biased.
  13. I didn't read the other post so here goes...NO!!!!! There is 5 years between me and my sister (I am the oldest). When I graduated my parents didn't have two dimes to rub together, I didn't get a car and they didn't help with my wedding. They couldn't! When my sister hit that age their situation was different. They didn't a lot more for her than me. So what???? It would really surprise me if this young adult wanted her parents to go into a debt so that things were fair financial between her and her siblings. Regardless of the promises made this is a family not a business deal.
  14. No but I think there is a lot of missing information. Once when I was 16 I became very mouthy and disrespectful to my dad. I was completely out of line. My dad very, very gently slapped my mouth. I collapsed on the floor and cried for hours. He didn't hurt me, however, I learned never to do that again. I am not sure talking to me at that age would have made any difference :D. My 16 year old DS who is a foot taller than me decided to argue with me and be disrespectful. His dad got in his face (very angry) and let him know that wasn't okay. While he didn't hit him he would have if the
  15. My DS is taking a AP Government class through PCH Prep. I spent several hours today trying to track down a location for him to take the test. I can't believe how difficult it is! No one will let us take the class because we are in the public school system. :svengo:
