  1. DD entered our public high school this year after homeschooling K-8. So far, we haven't had to use any of the homeschooling resources we have. One of the key benefits of homeschooling for mine was that they learned how to LEARN, seek out information, and problem solve. So I've been really impressed with how DD has managed her time, assignments, and even difficult teachers. It's all still relatively new, though, and there may come a time where I might need to tap into our homeschooling resources to offer extra help. Regarding the second question, I've taken a hands-off approach, though I've told DD I'm available if she needs any help with studying, assignments, or the aforementioned difficult teacher. As an aside, DD's teachers have been so impressed with not only what she knows but the quality of her work; in Biology class the teacher once held up her paper as an example for the other students -- because she had answered in complete sentences. LOL And on parent night so many of her teachers asked where she had gone to middle school. We took great satisfaction in telling them she was homeschooled. Thank you, Well Trained Mind!
  2. Big hugs to you, Rosie.
  3. I see this happened back in May, but am only seeing it since it got bumped today. I'm just gutted. :( I always really enjoyed nmoira's posts.
  4. That it must be cleared or you could be fined. I'm not sure about liability.
  5. My sister is a huge Little House nerd and told me about Jack many years ago. I was crushed. :( I have the Little House Cookbook too! We've tried several of the recipes but my favorite is the pumpkin pie. One year my sister and I did a "Little House Thanksgiving" with dishes mostly from the book. It was awesome. Great thread!
  6. All three of the libraries in my vicinity have teen sections. The largest one even has its own separate librarian-- she is fantastic and arranges all kinds of activities/book clubs/computer classes etc. for the teens. None of them are restrictive-- anyone can go in to peruse the books. I think it is great; no particular reason why. My two love little kids but still enjoy having their "own" space in the library.
  7. Thanks for the friending! :)

  8. Thanks for the friend request. :)

  9. They really don't bother me, unless the wearer of said camisole is spilling out of it. Correct fit is everything!
  10. Hey Lee! Thanks; I hope you are all well, too. We are great, but it's been a busy year and virtually no time for blogging. :( It's good-busy though, so I won't complain too much! Happy Summer :)
