  1. Thought I'd share this new way to connect to other books lovers. This is a newly launched website. The youtube video at explains how it works. I already started a list for homeschooling books featuring our very own Well Trained Mind books as well as other homeschooling books I've used since beginning homeschooling in 2001. My uncle, a rabid book lover, came up with the concept and designed the website. And of course, it's free. Just a way to connect to other people who love books as much as you/we/I do.
  2. I would have the donations made or transferred directly to a checking account held in the minor daughter's name. The parent's would probably have to be on the account but the income would be the child's. Then I would have a debit/credit card connected to the account used to pay medical bills. I would be clear on the donation website that the money is going to the child to pay for medical and related expenses. And then, I'd make sure to keep receipts for the child's related expenses, which of course could include expenses outside direct hospital bills. If the sum is large enough (or frankly, even if it's not), the child could put some of the money into a 529 plan for later if it is expected she'll use it for educational expenses. And if that's the case, I think that could be stated on the donation website as well. Extra prayers for them today.
  3. I misunderstood. I thought the issue was income counting against the family for the two older children's upcoming university educations. As you mention, the income would count against the 14 year old, but if it belonged to her it wouldn't count against the family for the other children. Also, it sounds as if the money will be spent over the next few years which will lessen the amount she'll have to claim by the time she is old enough to attend college. Just a few thoughts I'd have if it were my family. Obviously, a very tough situation. So sorry for your friend's family. I will definitely say a prayer for them.
  4. Can the money be donated to and put in the name of the child who will receive the benefit from the money? In other words, if it's the child's income, it should not be counted against the parents. They won't have to claim it if it's not theirs....
  5. They will still get a printed report at the end of January according to the College Board. From the CB website: Upcoming Dates Jan29 Paper PSAT/NMSQT score reports arrive at school
  6. I kind of think (hope) that we'll get more information when the printed report shows up at the end of January. In the past, they have included a section about how to read the scores. Also, we'll know more when the commended score is released in April.
  7. Thank you for posting this! :001_smile: It'll be a long wait until September!
  8. Pam,

    I don't know if I'm doing this right, but I'm hoping you get this message! Just wanted to send a huge congrats on your nursing accomplishment. My Mom is a nurse practitioner and worked as an RN for most of my childhood. She now works for the State Dept as a Medical Attache. Her career has been interesting to watch. She became an NP at the age of 50. Anyway, just wanted to say good for you! What a terrific achievement!!!
