  1. THIS ADVERT HAS EXPIRED!

    • Wanted
    • USED

    Looking for 2 student textbooks of Rod & Staff History/Geo 6 (Latin America) and the matching test booklet. We already have the teacher's manual for this, but I need 2 textbooks for my boys.

    NO VALUE SPECIFIED

  2. I am trying to start a local homeschool co-op to find local families to get together with. Anybody out there in Central-Eastern South Dakota can get more info here www.homeschool-life.com/sd/fcche

  3. Wow, I am really out of it. I haven't visited TWTM nearly as often as I'd have liked this winter due to computer repairs.

  4. Just changed my profie picture.

  5. Today's school day: Grandma taught World Geography while I did Grandma & Grandpa's taxes. Oldest read a library book independently w/o being asked to do so for the very first time AND did his math assignment w/o complaining this afternoon.

  7. Middle ds on the bus, oldest ds just woke up, dd and our dogs are still asleep and the DH is out of town for work. Enjoying the peace and quiet w/ my coffee... which almost never happens.

      I certainly did. The one pitfall... being in the bathroom way too frequently afterward.

  8. Income taxes finally done! Whoohooo! A huge weight off my shoulders.

  9. I really love being able to save money for my family by buying curriculum 2nd-hand here on TWTM!

  10. We are having another blizzard here in SD, and I don't mean the kind from Dairy Queen.

      I'm sorry. It's time for spring!

      They should really rename the snowy one so as to prevent confusion.

      That's a fabulous idea! Our DQ here closes for the winter... the owners go to AZ from Nov to April.

  11. Husband was impressed with the Cursive 1st curriculum I purchased here on TWTM from a fellow hive mind. He said "it looks much better than the workbooks you found at the Teacher Store in Sioux Falls."

  12. Looking over the new (to us) reading and handwriting curriculum that I purchased 2nd-Hand a few days ago from a Hive Mind friend.

  13. Managed to hurt my neck and shoulder yesterday. You never realize how much you use them until you can't move them much and your back itches!

      Thanks. It's a little better today, but I am still taking it easy.

  14. Pondering Curriculum Choices. Does anybody else ever feel like there is too many choices and you are trying to make your way through a forest without a flashlight?

      mom31257

      Yes, and I don't know how new homeschoolers do it. At least I've been doing this long enough to be familiar with some of the major choices.

      YES! I have a wish list at RR and I can't buy anything because I can't make up my mind.

      I've made a couple choices I am happy with in curriculum, I have others I'm unsure of and there are several curriculum companies I want to try out (hopefully with 2nd hand materials) before getting in deep with something. I've made several choices (shopping "local" at the nearest "teacher store" for curriculum recommended by authors in several of the homeschooling books I had read) that I have later regretted. Finances are too dear to make similar mistakes again.

  15. Considering what to make for supper
