  1. I'm looking at The Academy at Bright Ideas Press classes for my daughter next year (11th grade), and am wondering if anyone is currently enrolled and can give feedback. We are looking at English III, American History, Spanish 2, Chemistry and Geometry. They are having a sale for the month of February, but I'm having a hard time committing without any info from other homeschoolers. I've looked at Big River and Excelsior, but the course descriptions and youtube videos from Bright Ideas Press seem to fit my daughter better. Even if you're not enrolled in these classes, let me know what you think

In other words, more rhetoric and less grammar phase. I just need to complete the year and get her to the 1900's because I'm pretty sure I'm going to make her do a Modern World History course next year because I think it's that important to study the 1900's in depth. So what do I do for this semester? Spielvogel? MOH with a lot of discussion? Something else? She just finished the Protestant Revolution. Any and all suggestion
  3. Well, I'm a burnt out homeschool mom of 2 that has homeschooled from the beginning, graduated one last year, and has tried several times to throw in the towel with my second (including recently). 1. Why am I burnt out? I did lose myself. I was doing everything for the family AND homeschooling. That worked in elementary school but not in high school. Someone on this thread said they hated high school and I whole heartedly agree. It's not fun. It's in the trenches dirty work, and feels like bare knuckled boxing every. single.day. Between the teenage drama, the testing, the "requirements," a
  4. Can we do this after the fact? So, for example, my oldest is taking Advanced Biology this year and I'm thinking about having her take the AP exam in the spring. I was just going to list it as an AP course on her transcript if she scored well on the test. Do we have to submit the syllabus before the school year starts in order to list it on the transcript? I guess I thought I knew what I was doing and now I'm realizing I don't. :confused1:

    I'm looking for the complete set of 6th grade math 3rd edition only. If you've done the first couple of units in the Student Text, that's fine with me, but you must disclose what you've done. Thanks!


  12. How funny that you knew exactly what I was talking about. Good memories, good times. :)
  13. This is what finally worked for me. I found some Ryan Gosling, a Kilt and a nun, :lol: but no Johnny Depp?!? Does that mean they're gone already or do I still need to do a search? Did some of the pics disappear with the last forum switch over? So sorry this has turned into an issue Susan. Blessings! Dorinda
