    I'm a mom of ten beautiful kiddos, ages 27, 25, 23, 21, 19, 17, 15, 13, 11, and our late-life bonus baby, just turned 6. Large family life is grand! Most of the time....
  1. Hugs to you! I was so touched to read your update! Special blessings to you and your family.
  2. All of my children have used or are currently using Singapore math and Memoria Press Latin materials.
  3. I don't know how I missed this! Thank you so much!
  4. As a long time Hunter fan, I agree with all of the above! 😀
  5. We began in 2001 and I'm in my mid 50's now...I still have five schooling at home, including a 6yo. All my older children have done very well in college, so that gives me confidence with our choices, which have ranged over the years from WTM to CMish to "mom-invented" and back again. I use more Memoria Press products now because the structure does us all good. We've always used their Latin curricula but I was pleasantly surprised to find that I could use many of their other materials in a (sort of) relaxed way...we call the workbooks our "guidebooks" and we employ lots of discussion and drawing with each subject, two of my kids' favorite things. I was also surprised to find that they, too, like the structure and predictability of our MP days. I'm still in good health, but I've got an eye on the future, especially with my youngest child, in terms of how best to approach our situation if I should encounter health concerns or have to care for my aging parents at some point. I suppose I think a lot about homeschooling longevity these days, which goes with the territory if you've been blessed with more than the average number of children.
  6. (sorry--don't know how to link) I love this woman's CM perspective. She has a large family and she goes into quite a bit of depth about what she's doing with her youngest child, age 12.
  7. Warmest congratulations and best wishes to you! Your household sounds like mine when I began and it's been a wonderful ride! Wouldn't have it any other way!
  8. Thank you for all your efforts! I just love your work! Will be teaching my final student to read this fall.
  9. Well, I haven't been at it THAT long, but I remember ordering my first set of Singapore math books (circa 2000) directly from Singapore...they arrived on a wing & a prayer about a month later barely packaged together with a couple sheets of newspaper (no box). I saved a dollar or two doing it that way...didn't do it again, though.
  10. Just wanted to second the "Joyous Lessons" blog mentioned above...Celeste is just the nicest person, shares schedules, etc., and never fails to inspire, I promise! She is also Catholic, if that is helpful to the OP.
  11. Joining the I Love Hunter Fan Club :hat: It amazes me that despite her many trials, she continually instructs & encourages and and shares so freely her vast experience. I have followed her posts for a very long time.
  12. Thank you--I have followed your posts for many years and have used bits & pieces as I was able to understand them. Now I am eagerly intending to use this approach fully for my final student!
  13. I've NEVER done co-op in 15+ years of homeschooling--my large family IS a co-op. It takes all I have to meet their needs each day and hold down the homefront. My kids are each other's best friends right now and have also never had any problem making friends in the neighborhood and at church, and my grown children have made the transition to college and professional life with friends and roommates just fine. You have a large family, too, so I just thought I'd offer my experience from that perspective!
  14. Can't wait to read and so excited for you and your longevity in the homeschooling world. You and your mother were my first and still-favorite influences way back when!
