  1. eaglei, I'm so sorry to hear of your husband's sudden passing! May the Lord hold you close and give you much peace and comfort.
  2. I think it is definitely doable, especially if the student didn't prep much prior to the first test. My ds was able to raise his sat 100+ points from first test to second test. Prior to the first exam he had done some prep with Khan Academy. In between the two exams he did an SAT Prep class with Mr D Math, worked through the Princeton Review SAT Prep book, and did several practice exams. Do you have a ballpark idea of what you think he's realistically capable of scoring? My son's first test score was below what I though he was capable of (based on my realistic assessment of him afte
  3. 💙 Praying for your whole family today. You are grieving a huge loss, be gentle with yourself in this hard season. ((((hugs))))
  4. I am so very sorry. Thinking of you and praying for you and your family. 💙
  5. I'm in NE Indiana and just so...frustrated. We pretended everything was "normal...fine" for too long. The governor's moving in the right direction but way too slowly. I expect most of Indiana's counties to be red by next week. On a positive note, both of my boys' universities have handled this pretty well, just hoping they can make it two more weeks to the planned end of on-campus instruction.
  6. Indiana COVID dashboard is a good resource: https://www.coronavirus.in.gov/ Bloomington area (Monroe County) looks better than a lot of IN right now, but generally speaking Indiana is in trouble. Not as bad as IL & IA yet, butI'm very worried. 🤔
  7. Just repeat after me.... stay away from the comments....stay away from the comments....(this is me talking to myself EVERY time I start reading comments. It's never good 😧).
  8. We like these Adidas duffel bags: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B073JTWVNW/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&th=1&psc=1. Reasonable cost, they hold a lot, and seem to be holding up well. I don't like duffels with wheels because the frame takes away one of the big advantages of the duffel bag - packing compactly together in a vehicle.
  9. Feeling so unloved here in Indiana. 😉😂
  10. I'm so sorry to hear this, Scarlett, and am praying for all your family. What a kindness from strangers - that is amazing. Your parents are blessed to have you and other family members willing to drop everything and care for them. Praying for safe travel for your sister and a good recovery for both your parents. 💙
  11. You're not under any obligation to give them a gift (no invitation, no obligation). Since it sounds like you will continue to have a relationship with them in the context of this group, I think what you need to think about it in terms of the relationship going forward. And I don't have a clear answer for what you should do, just that your response will impact the continuing relationship. For example, will this situation remain an unspoken issue/elephant in the living room in your relationship with them? Will giving or not giving a gift make a difference there? What kind of value does thi
  12. I don't have any advice for the situation, but just want to express my sympathy in the loss of your son. Praying for peace and comfort for you and your family.
  13. Praying for you, your family, and your school today!
  14. I would love a PM too, please! This is what happens when I try to limit my time online....hmmmph. @Not_a_numberso sorry you were on the receiving end of bizarre and unsettling actions.
