  1. When I complained about surliness. "Maybe I'm growing up, Mama. You only have a view of my botty leaving you, but all I see is blue skies ahead."

      I'm trying to keep my sense of humor, gnnrgh.

  2. Just bought *3* Great Courses instead of the one I was planning before looking at the catalog. It's so easy to get carried away. @.@

      Impossible Physics, Joy of Math and Mental Math. I had to restrict myself to what's likely to be watched. Tell me about your collection one day, Quark. :D

  3. Ds is loving MCT writing exercises. Woot!

  4. Feeling pained. Have to cut some of ds' sports activities in favor of schoolwork if we're to achieve a full schedule next year. :(

      Year-round schooling? That is how we get it "all" done here, but we have plenty of breaks when we need them.

      Hmm you're giving me ideas :D. We already school year round but I could make summer a different block altogether.

      We have a busy season and a slow season. No sports in the fall- we stack up a healthy school load. Come late winter/spring, it's baseball and swim season, light academics.

  5. Finally working through next year's curriculum. With fewer 2e issues now, I think we can broaden out to include geography and maybe even history. Yay!!

  6. Independance and self management has been on my mind as well, Halcyon. In my case, I have a child with zero sense of time and structure (characteristic of his LD). We've actually done very little by way of structured homeschooling because he drifts, gets lost in his thoughts and takes hours to complete anything. I realise now that this is the way his brain works- he wants depth over breadth. I've chosen to homeschool based on his interests so there is less resistance. Its been a gradual transformation, but in the last few months, he was doing enough work for me to write up a schedule. Lat
