    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. Accountability TREAD! Hadn't noticed that. Love it!!
  2. Oh dear, I am terribly sorry to hear that! Gosh. Sounds like a good plan to take time for some much-needed (and deserved!) self-care. Definitely start with sleep and food...obviously you know that but I still wanted to say it! Thinking of you...😞
  3. I'm with Lori D. – give me the durian fruit and the sticks of chicken satay!
  4. Caffeine is a goal! I am LOL'ing (as I sip my coffee)...
  5. Beautiful! Brought tears to my eyes! May you continue to be richly blessed!
  6. We didn't always do many extras since I had so many littles back in the day, but I never missed reading aloud through the volumes and they got a lot from "only" reading. My firstborn (now 29) adored history and read Volume 1 in its entirety in a day after it was published (circa 2001)… later went to Princeton on a full scholarship to study history and always credited SoTW and SWB for his early interest and ambition.

  9. I don't know how I missed this! Thank you so much!
  10. As a long time Hunter fan, I agree with all of the above! 😀
  11. 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 dra
  12. journey-and-destination.blogspot.com (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.
  13. 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!
  14. Thank you for all your efforts! I just love your work! Will be teaching my final student to read this fall.
