    Good used condition, markings on first few pages.


  2. I am an infrequent visitor to the boards these days. My youngest is finishing high school this spring and he attended a brick and mortal school-not my choice, but in fact it was a great fit for him and has worked out well. FYI he attended a Bard High School Early College and if you have any interest in learning about the Bard schools, please PM me. I am a huge fan! My purpose in writing this post is to find out how you all have handled the books, papers, and ephemera you have left, when you are finished home schooling. I freely admit to being, not a packrat exactly, but too sentimenta
  3. Hi everyone-flash from the past here. I have not been around much this year; my youngest finished homeschooling when he went to high school almost 4 years ago. He attended a Bard Early College high school that was just opening in my city, and it has been a great fit for him. Anyway, just popping in to say he was accepted ED to Williams in December. Yay for early decision!!! It made our Christmas and New Year's holidays much nicer and I strongly recommend it! I see that someone else on the boards, Alewife, has a child accepted at Williams and I'm wondering if your child is actually
  4. Hi everyone, I used to be more of a regular on the boards when I was still home schooling, but my youngest went to high school, older kids in college or graduated. So I am DONE home schooling. I'm posting (also posting on the HS writing board) for a friend who helped start an online writing tutoring and grading service. It's something I wish had been available to me when I was teaching older kids to write, because it's not one of my own strong areas. Here is a summary with a link: If your child (or YOU!) needs help with writing, please have a look at my new website, www.WriteOn
  5. Thank you for including me in this invite! I am literally waiting in an airport, about to fly to Dublin for our 25th anniversary trip. I will look at the dates and respond when I am back in the USA!
  6. I had only half my thyroid taken out, but for that I did not have to stay in the hospital, though they offered it as an option if I had a lot of pain or any complication. Fortunately, neither was true. If I had elected to have a total thyroidectomy, I would have spent a night in the hospital. And a different view about covering the scar-I planned to do this, until after the surgery. It felt awful to me for anything to touch that area! So I showed off my scar LOL. I couldn't stand to cover it.
  7. Hi Jenny, I had a partial thyroidectomy in April and it was not a huge deal. It's the biggest medical procedure I've had; it was the only time I've ever had general anesthesia. But I felt pretty back to normal within a week, and mostly functional in a couple of days. Not awful pain. No stitches or staples. Just glue! You will have to deal with adjusting the medications after it's over, and I was fortunate not to have to. But the surgery itself was not bad. So ask away or PM me if you have other questions.

    I have the Hands On Equations Verbal Problems book and one student manipulative kit. No marks, the curriculum is in a binder, no pieces missing from manipulative kit. Retails for $40.50, I am selling for $20, postage NOT included. Cannot be media mailed with manipulatives, so postage is higher.
