      You can click on your name at the top of the screen, which should pull down a menu. Click on My Settings, and then there are different options on the left side of the screen.

      didn't work. Is it because I'm brand new? Is there some policy about newbies that I can't find?

      ah-ha! Got it working :)

  3. Just recently heard about these and then found out they were on Netflix, yippee! They're a little old for my kids, but they're short, right? ;-)
  4. Oops, my computer told me twice that it didn't post :/ Guess I posted it thrice...
  5. Take it back. Get an iPad or a Google Nexus 7. Personally, I would go with the Nexus. It costs about the same as a Fire, is about the same price, but is much much better because it runs a full version of Android and you have many more app choices. I love ours. I have played around with my mom's iPad, and for what I want it for, it's too big. My kids love the Nexus too, and it's a better size for them to be able to use without me fearing they're going to break it (at least not as easily, anyway). You can do everything on the Nexus that you can on the Fire, and so much more. If you want to watch
  6. I found the idea of a High 5 chart, which worked for us at that age. My dd, now 6, and my ds, 3.5, know that they have to do the 5 things on the chart every morning. There's still some grumbling, but it works better as a visual. I update it every few months as needed, and I have them help me make it as a craft project. Basically, it's a hand print with something they have to do on each finger. Right now, our morning High 5 "chores" are: Get Dressed, Eat Breakfast, Help Empty Dishwasher, Brush Teeth, Read Bible with Mom. Our evening one right now is Clean Up Toys, Potty & PJs, Brush Teeth
  7. Hello all! What a wonderful community to have found! I wish I had found it at the beginning of the year, when we were just starting Tapestry of Grace, but better late than never :-) I am homeschooling my 6 y.o. dd (1st grade), with my 3.5 y.o. ds and 1 y.o. ds to follow. We are currently doing Tapestry, but will be switching to something else next year because ToG isn't working that well for us at the lower grammar level. Oh, and I'm a second generation homeschooler. I was also homeschooled, all the way through, and then got a bachelor's degree. I now stay home with my three littles and am s

  10. Um, I didn't find it. How do I get to do all that (edit my profile, make a signature, etc, etc)? Help!
  11. We love the Denver Zoo, the Museum of Nature and Science, and the Butterfly Pavilion (as already mentioned). I've heard that the Firefighter Museum is great, but I haven't personally been there yet. My kids are 6, 3, and 1, by the way, if that helps. Also, I have the Zoo Guide from AIG and it really helped with making the zoo into an actual field trip instead of just a fun thing to do. I plan on getting the Museum Guide as budget allows :)
