  1. I consider myself a fairly relaxed homeschooler. With my son, who is in 1st grade, I use Oak Meadow because it's Waldorfy, doesn't push early academics, is gentle and hands on and creative. We are using Reading Eggs, too, which he enjoys, but no stress or pressure. He's progressing with learning to read and we will continue with it over the year. I did not find pushing learning to read to be necessary in kindergarten. I try to read to him as much as he will let me, sign him up for a variety of activities, take him on lots of outings and field trips, and try to encourage his interests, and
  2. Just saying hi! :)

  3. Hey...I've finally caught up (mostly) on blog updates! Good to see you over at the WLC social group by the way and posting more on the boards too! :)

  4. Miss you posting on your blog! Hope all is well. :)

  5. Thanks for the link! I'm going to put several more reviews up tomorrow, I have a list of a few places to do, including Trip Advisor, Travelocity, City Search, Insider Pages, Merchant Circle, and Yelp (which I'm having trouble getting a confirmation email from for some reason), as well as Google Places and Yahoo Local which I already did. Plus DH and I did our facebooks of course. I hope they end up feeling SOME sort of regret for how they went about things!

  6. I'm sorry you had a bad experience. I found another page where you can leave a review. http://www.insiderpages.com/b/3720657698/pioneer-evergreen-farms-orwigsburg

  7. I wish I could post truly witty things my kids have said that make them look all smart and stuff compared to public schoolers. But, alas, I get stuff like this: "I know what pubic means. It's right here." (DD, 8 at the time, proceeds to point to her PUPIL). or, at age 10: "I can't think of another word that has a suffix." Me: "Hm. Well, how about trying to think of a word that ends in ful?" She: "Oh, I know. Waffle." Or my 5 year old son wanted to tell us, "I'm a ninja. You can't see me." But instead told us, "I'm a inja. I can't see." :tongue_smilie:
  8. LOL- no because I can't dance at ALL, I have like NO rhythm, I'd feel like a bull in a china shop doing something like that haha.

  9. Oops! (Um, have you thought about doing Zumba?!) I guess I'll do a search and find out who I'm supposed to be asking about this:)

  10. Hi, actually, that wasn't me lol. I never did zumba. I worked out at the Y, and did a one time kickboxing type class there, and my daughter does Judo there, but that's about it!

  11. Nance - are you still doing Zumba? How did you like it? (I'm thinking of joining the Y and saw that they had Zumba there.)

  12. Well, since this post has resurfaced, I took a peek and didn't see "OM" (Oak Meadow) or "TT" (Teaching Textbooks) on the homeschool abbreviation list!
