  1. I have a small kitchen table set up in my family room that I use to do puzzles. My husband cut off the side of a large cardboard box that I put the puzzle together on. Then if I need to use the table for another purposes, I can just move the cardboard.
  2. There have been a lot of ambulance calls in my county (heart problem, difficulty breathing, chest pain, abdominal pain, falls...). Even with a snow blower, my husband is only clearing the driveway a little at a time. He has been out twice now and it is still a work in progress.
  3. I am in south central PA. I think we are at the 2' mark.
  4. I have one boy, age 11, who loves for me to read to him at bedtime. We recently finished The Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles. I am now reading The Trumpet of the Swan.
  5. I have taken my husband to Men's Wearhouse in Harrisburg and was please with the customer service there.
  6. I pronounce the "l" in Pennsylvania and I also do not recalled ever hearing it pronounced out the "l".
  7. I enjoyed that list! I am from south central PA. I love it here!

  9. Have fun gals! Maybe next time I will be able to join you. Is anyone located on the east side of the Susquehanna?
  10. The entire book has 35 units,but only units 1-10 are meant to be "season one" (one year of Grammar) if you are using the book for three years as designed. You can do more if you are starting it later. The website has a two year time line of completion suggested if starting in grades 8-10. The first year it is suggested to do units 1-17 using several weeks of practice only between "seasons one and two". The second year being used to finish the remainder of the book (units 18-35). On both the two and three year timeline, the author paces one unit per week. Unit One has the lesson, 3 exercises, one skill support lesson, and a unit test. For us, this will take a total of 8 days, but I am taking this slow due to my current health situation. On the days I do the correction of the main lesson exersices with Doodle, that is all we do that day.
  11. I've only just begun this with Doodle (6th grade). The lesson page is identical in the student and the teacher book so, your students are able to read the lesson without you if you so choose. I read over it with Doodle. It was only one page long, so very little time was involved. Then there were three exersices which were all practice of lesson one. Doodle did exercise one the day we went over the lesson. The next day I corrected it with him. And then we did the remaining the same way where he did the next exersice and we corrected it together the following day.
  12. Unfortunately, health issues (chemo). I would absolutely bring Doodle if I could attend. He would love it.
  13. Sounds like fun, but I will not be able to attend. I am home bound until the spring.
  14. We started today and it was a good first day! I decided to hold off on Hakim's History of U.S. and instead use it for 7th and 8th. I also decided to use Jacobs Algebra instead of AOPS pre-algebra. We started Jacobs Human Endeavor at the end of 5th grade and really liked it.
