  1. It is a constant struggle to get Latin done each day. My boys hate it and honestly, I hate teaching it. I have never enjoyed teaching foreign language so my lack of enthusiasm probably isn't helping the situation. I have no issue with the program we're using; it's a quality program that isn't too dry. I also see the value of Latin but at what point do you decide this isn't a hill worth dying for? Are there any good self-paced computer programs besides Rosetta Stone? My youngest is using Classical Academic Press' new online class but it's for younger students. Should I just transition ov
  2. Do you know anyone in the military? They can purchase tickets on base for significantly cheaper. A friend purchased annual passes for our family so we were able to save $70/ticket.
  3. History has never been my boys favorite subject but they are loving this. They actually ask to do history first. That is all. :D
  4. Costco also just put out their Christmas decorations & wrapping paper. :scared:
  5. Awesome! I'm almost positive I'm going to buy this year but this will give me a chance to check it out a little further. Will the do a group buy this month?
  6. San Diego is a big area so it really depends. Is your husband going to be working in a specific area or city? North San Diego is much different from the city proper or South Bay. That being said, there is a very active homeschooling community throughout San Diego. Can you narrow down the area a little more?
  7. Too many are relying on rote memorization and plugging numbers into formulas with any try understanding of the concepts. They don't understand "why" which really comes back to bite them in advanced math. We've used MUS from the beginning and my oldest is now in Prealgebra. It's a solid program. Fortunately as homeschoolers, we have many solid programs to choose from.
  8. When I asked last year, I was told his lectures aren't recorded. He uses many visual aids so apparently, the audio lectures don't translate we'll without the visuals. Again, so frustrating...
  9. Seriously? No Andrew Kern either?? I saw that MCT wasn't on the schedule so I emailed RFWP. All I received was an email saying that neither he nor they are attending...no explanation. The convention is listed on their Facebook page. I don't know what's going on behind the scenes but I'm upset that I paid $$ to see certain speakers who are no longer attending. I'd see SWB anytime but I've heard all but one of her scheduled lectures. Totally annoying!
  10. What happened?? Michael Clay Thompson was listed as a speaker and RFWP as a vendor but when I checked over the schedule (which just came out), he's not listed. I shot over an email to RFWP who responded that neither he nor they will be attending. He was the main reason I was going to attend. So frustrated...:banghead:
