  1. I said yes, but I meant 'sort of.' My kids go to a University Model School, so they're half here and half there for grammar school. And we do a couple subjects at home that aren't at school at all.
  2. Ah, okay. Thanks for that heads up. I may just recommend Bill Bryson to the older girls. James Herriot as an audiobook might be really fun - we've loved the print books, but if they are read with a fun accent that would definitely be a boost.
  3. Great idea! I read Born to Run years ago, before I was into audiobooks, and I bet the kids would really enjoy it.
  4. Let's see, at the time of adventure they'll be 9, 11, 14 and 16. All daughters. I don't mind a little cussing here and there (we LOVE James Herriot, for example) - I will look into the Bill Bryson! MLK also sounds interesting. Thank you for the ideas!
  5. Ooh, LOTR would be fun! I like that idea. Thank you, Spryte. I'll look into a geographical fit book -- we one time read a biography of John Colter when we were up at Yellowstone and that was very cool (and nerdy).
  6. Yes! It will be super fun. But I really do feel like we need books. Preferably long, epic books. 😁
  7. My family is fixing to have a big bike ride -- 240 miles spread over 6 days. It's going to be super fun for most of us, but a couple of our weaker riders would really benefit from an audiobook to speed the miles along. I'm thinking something epic and inspiring. We all loved Boys in the Boat. Leslie Connor's Crunch was also popular (we may listen to that one again, being bike related!). Seabiscuit was a hit. Can anyone point me to a great listen that would fit the occasion?
  8. I am organizing a multi-day bike trip for my family this summer. It's going to be super fun!! It's biking plus camping along a Rails-to-Trails route and should take about a week. We have a mix of excited kids and reluctant bike riders, so I am trying to strike a balance between lots of miles and other fun stuff.
  9. Are you missing the camaraderie of making music with other people, or more just the music making? Would you have a venue to play with other people? (church? Community band/orchestra? Folk group?) Or maybe you're wanting just to play for your own enjoyment? Those factors might point you in some direction or another.
  10. Check in about testing fees. Our family of 6 used to all train at a TKD studio, and the family rate was fantastic but the testing fees were not discounted at all! So that added up surprisingly fast and painfully.
  11. We all like it some, but none of us ultra love it. That's me and the husband, and four kids ages 9-15. Of the other games we play, it's most similar to Ticket to Ride, but obviously with a Parks vibe.
  12. That sounds great! I'm totally going to look into the card systems. I do like a good flashcard.
  13. Dreamer, I feel like I want to be in your fan club! I love all of this. What all languages do you speak?? So far I've learned the Lord's Prayer in English, Spanish, French and German. I super dig languages and admire y'all with many.
  14. I would love to hear more about your Scripture memory -- how do you choose what you're memorizing? And what do you do to get it in there? And how do you make it stay put?
