  1. Hadn’t heard of this, either, but it’s worth a try.
  2. I haven’t heard of it, but I’ll check it out.
  3. We did physics first, and also used the Novare book. DS is very math proficient and enjoys physics and chemistry more than biology. I do not think it would work well if the student was not algebra capable. It worked out very well for us, and I wish I had done that for DD, who graduated earlier, because it makes sense as long as the student is algebra capable.
  4. I have a neutered adult male cat that I have had for 4 years; he's a sweet and adorable cat. I also began fostering a spayed female cat a few months ago; she is also sweet and adorable and loves humans. But cats...not so much, apparently. We tried to do the slow introductions behind a door, with one in a crate, etc... It was mess - female foster cat hissed, growled and screamed at my male when he approached with a submissive posture. So he slunk away. But like a bad blind date, he can't seem to take no for an answer and keeps approaching her, she commences hissing/spitting/growling, then
  5. My husband and son do this every January with the Boy Scouts; they love it. I hate camping in nice weather, so I sure wouldn't be going in the freezing cold!
  6. My mother is in her 90s and we have discussed these issues many times. I have a general idea of what she wants, but she and I both think that the nuances make a blanket statement useless. So neither of us has an artificial directive, by design, for these reasons. But we do know what my mom wants and will carry it out.

  8. The power steering problem was, among other things, one of the design flaws in those first Traverses and was one of the problems we were repeatedly in the garage for. Ours would cause power failure when turning. There were also repeated cylinder fails caused by over-heating because wires were designed to run too close to the engine. Ugh. Worst car I ever owned.
  9. We had the original Traverse before the re-design. Do not even go near it. We had to trade it in way before we would normally give up our car because it had so very many issues; the issues began at 60,000-70,000, and included major AC failure, repeated cylinder failures, and repeated power steering failures. Incidentally, certain Chevrolet models (i.e. Malibu) from that time period (2009-2011) have these issues in common. DH had to spend so much time on the phone with GM engineers and GM headquarters because the dealer didn't want to pay for the multiple repairs on the same problem that ori
  10. DD is a first-year freshman and when she is home she now sets her rules, with 2 exceptions: We own and are responsible for her car, so if we deem something unsafe or unwise regarding the car, our opinion rules, and 2) She must be considerate of us (as far as quietness when coming in late, tidying up her messes, etc)
  11. I would just give a cheery "Sorry, but we're sticking close to home and family until the pandemic passes. Hopefully soon!" My family and I had a small graduation party for DD and travelled for Thanksgiving and will do so for Christmas, but I have zero problems with families that chose to opt out of our celebrations and feel that's how they want to proceed these days. Maybe she won't be offended? I don't see why a family's individual decision should be an issue.
  12. Her student has had Algebra I, but is very weak in it. IMO, she should repeat that class before continuing on with chemistry, but that seems to be a no-go with her.
  13. A homeschool mom is asking my advice on a high school chemistry text/curriculum for a student who is weak in math; she is adamant about chemistry, rather than another science option. Free and online would be a plus. What do you all suggest?
