  1. We are excited and nervous at the same time. Seton had it's place - more for my peace of mind than hers. Yep...I have a high schooler now! It's crazy!
  2. I have tried deleting the photo and uploading a photo again. I have tried using my gravatar, which will work, but then when I try to upload my new picture, it finds the OLD photo, which is a horrible photo, 40 lbs heavier than I am now, and I really want to delete it, but it won't go away! Yes, the new one is under 50kb. Any advice?
  3. I have done 4 Stitch Fixes now. The first box I liked 3/5, the second 1/5, the third I sent back, and the fourth I liked 2/5. I find them rather over priced, but I did find items that look really good on me, fit well, and they are styles I never would have thought of. That's good - and I enjoy them. I just hope that I want at least 1 thing so I don't lose my styling fee!
  4. Hi everyone! I have been perusing the site and seeing quite a few new faces, and not many user names of people I still know - but I know you're out there! I am Susan, homeschooling Mom of Melissa, 14 years old and getting ready to start High School. Since I have been a gone, we have decided to "drop the box" of Seton and enrollment and go out a bit on our own this coming year. Funny, when we SHOULD have been experimenting, I was too afraid to do so. Now that she's in High School - I start. Hey, perhaps I'm not the sharpest pencil in the box, but I really think this is the right decision, although rather scary for me. We live in Las Vegas, where the school system is abysmal. There is not an option that we find palatable to put her in any type of schooling here, so we continue to home school through the dreaded High School years. I look forward to meeting new faces and get/give support on this journey!
  5. Just let them start discovering it on their own! The beauty of it is the creativity!
  6. I am well, how are you? We bought a house and have been really busy with my IL's as well. Still fully enrolled with Seton and Melissa will be in 7th grade next year. She's a tween now. Nuff said. LOL I'm not hanging around here much anymore because I'm really not a classical educator and I use a box...there's not much discussion around for gals like me.
  7. Man, I can tell you, if someone writes one, they will make a FORTUNE!!!!! I can't tell you how many Christians I know that use YE texts and just redact or use OE texts and add God in...to have both would SOOO be a win win!!! I haven't found one yet.
  8. Is there any appreciable difference in content between the two? I have Saxon 7/6 2nd edition and I am having a heck of a time finding the answer key and test booklet, and they don't even make a DIVE or Saxon Teacher CD for it. I am considering selling the 2nd edition I have and purchasing the Home School Edition - but I don't know how the content differs.
  9. Very true!!! While I define who I am by my relationship with Christ, I do not wish to be judged by the lowest common denominator bad examples of my faith, which it seems like people tend to do. Just as I don't want to be defined by those home schoolers who don't take it seriously, I don't want to be defined by those who either never understood their faith and left it, took someone's "word for it" that was wrong, or never made a serious effort to learn what it really teaches. The most infuriating thing about faith is to have to listen to someone who is not of the faith tell someone who IS of the faith what they believe. It is the height of arrogance to think that you know better than someone who lives it, breathes it, studies it, and knows it.
  10. I know - WOW!!!! Such vileness and nasty fighting!! EEK! :confused1:
  11. I never heard it until I went online in home schooling circles. It's not even discussed in our real life home school group of friends. Young Earth proponents believe in a literal 7 day creation (each day being 24 hours long just like today) in the order and literal word of Genesis in the Bible. Through a Bishop's study (I totally blanked on his name) who followed the lineage listed in the Bible, he came up with a Creation Date of the Earth and how old it is - which is approximately 6000 years old. Some also believe that fossils were placed there by God to test our faith. Old Earth is the model in which the proponents believe that the earth is very old, as evidenced by fossils, by the age of the rocks tested, by the evolutionary theory, along with many other reasons. There are many facets in each side, which makes it even more confusing. I believe God created the Heavens and the Earth and everything contained within it. I believe He is an active God who interacts with his people. i don't believe we know for certain how old the earth is, and to me, it doesn't really matter. What matters is that God created all. Nothing else is a matter of salvation or theology for me. I call myself an Old Earth Creationist. I don't like that the minute you say you are a "creationist" that people assume that you are a Young Earth literalist. They actually are a minority of the thought, but the most vocal.
