  1. I got a small one on a whim when I was 22 (I'm now 44). I would love to have it removed; it has no meaning to me except my own stupidity at that time of my life. I need to lose 25 lbs and have this one reworked into something that has meaning to me (part of my stupidity was the placement, I was fresh out of basic training and in really great shape - things have a way of changing over the years).
  2. I learned a lot through the use of (free) and Harvey's Elementary Grammar (Amazon has it for $9.89). I think KISS worked really well for me due to the whole visual/kinesthetic aspect to it - I like to go through the passage and mark the different parts in different colors using different symbols. It's like a puzzle.
  3. I pour 2 cups of coffee into my Vitamix, slice off a little bit (maybe a tsp) of unsalted butter and then scoop about a TB of coconut oil in and spin it around until it's frothy (10-15 secs). We drink the Costco brand of Columbian coffee. I think butter in coffee sounds so strange, but it tastes so good.
  4. We like the free He's a little silly, but he makes it completely understandable. He has a couple of TEDD talks where he explains his reason for the silliness - lots of people feel stupid where math is concerned - like other people will laugh at them - so he makes it easy for them to ask questions because he's already broken the ice by allowing everyone to laugh at him.
  5. I think we're going to try the CK-12 today and see how it works. I have 2 at home that have been doing nearly everything together from the get-go, they're pretty close in age. This looks as if it would work with how we like to do nearly everything - sit at the table, read outloud, talk about it, look for youtube videos that explain or demonstrate. So, again, thanks. I'm also somewhat interested in /2/"]!prettyPhoto[gallery]/2/ this one, it seems similar to TRISMS (which we're using this year), has anyone else actually used it?
  6. Thanks for this. l have seriously been struggling with Apologia Chemistry this year with my son, honestly the only reason we're using it is because his older brother used it (with an outside class, zero input from me) and we have it. Everytime we pull it out, we all kind of sigh and try to mentally get ready - as if we have to take our medicine.
