  1. Hello, I was looking at getting the Light Speed Nutrition Bundle and the Total Health Curriculum for my 15 yo. dd who is highly interested in health and nutrition. I was wondering if anyone has had experience with either of these and if there was any other recommendations that you could lead me to. Thank you so much, erin.
  2. Hello, I was wondering if anyone uses this at home to teach to their kids. I have a 12 year old son that is very handy with a computer but would like to learn more. Any info or advice would be great. Thank you, Erin.
  3. Hello, my 12 year old son is interested in learning Greek. Does anyone recommend a user friendly program? Thank you, erin.
  4. Hello, I noticed that there have been some posts on this in the past but I wanted to ask more specific questions to get a better feel of which direction to go next...my 14 dd will be 9th grade next year turning 15 in November. She loves taking Latin...I myself have had no Latin background but have been able to teach her using Prima Latina which she started at the end of 4th grade and we did this with my twin boys who were at the end of 2nd grade at the time and then she did Latin Christiana I and we are about to finish First Form Latin. We left the boys behind a few lessons ago because they were needing more hand holding. Obviously we took the very slow route because during this time I have had two babies, etc. etc and it took the back seat....but Now, I am confused as to where to go next. Memoria Press highly recommends that you continue with 2nd Form as they will continue to learn the other two conjugations and much more that they didn't cover in First Form. I was going to have her take the National Latin Exam this year but changed my mind since I noticed that after all of this time of her taking Latin she would only qualify to take intro to Latin. We thoroughly enjoy the Memoria Press program but I also don't know of anything else that I can teach her myself without getting a tutor or possibly taking online ( which could be an option). So, with that said, I was hoping for some guidance...thank you so much, erin.
  5. Hello, has anyone used this? I have twin 6th grade boys that I am interested in using this with. Is there anywhere I can see a sample? Thank you, erin.
  6. Hello, I have been homeschooling for 5 years and just when I think I have things figured out I realize how much I don't. There is so much great curriculum out there, so much to learn, to teach, etc. how do you choose? I love the classical method and cm intrigues me too. I have 6 children...dd 14, twin boys 11, ds 4, dd 2 and ds 6 months. I have help with the little people in the morning and I still can't find the time to get what I want done with the big people. Where does the time go? I would love to hear some of your schedules, daily, weekly, etc. does anyone do block scheduling? Do you do science daily or 2x's a week? How many hours a day do you school? How much is independent work? Anyway, any suggestions, encoyragement would be grand. I need it, thank you so much, erin.
  7. Hello, I am researching curriculum choices for my soon to be 5 yo for next school year. I have been looking at heart of dakota because a dear friend highly recommends it and has used it successfully for several years. I really like it for k but do not like the thought of not using other plans, namely a more classical approach after k. I really like Mother of Divine Grace, we are Catholic, and I love IEW. Has anyone successfully used the HOD Little Hearts for His Glory and then moved on or maybe liked it so much they stuck with it? Any feedback would be appreciated....erin
  8. Who has the best lesson plans for this? I have twin boys that will be studying this next year. I have the full course cdrom with audio. I need them to be as independent as possible because I will have a newborn baby. Any suggestions? Erin

  11. I have been using Librivox with my boys which has free audio downloads to my ipod. One of my sons just finished The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood while following along with the book and loved it. He is reading the original Peter Pan now. He also enjoyed reading Rudyard Kilplings books. My other son just finished White Fang and Call of the Wild. Enjoy...erin
  12. I am going to test my 5th and 7th graders this week and was curious to see how many days is sufficient to spread out the test. Thank you...erin
  13. Yes, i thought that is what I understand. I just hate to commit to something that I am so unsure about. I wish that I could just get one and try it out. Is there any way to do that? erin.
  14. Wow, that is expensive...thank you for sharing...I think I will wait on that one...lol...have you used this? erin.
  15. Hello, I was wondering if anyone knew how to get a copy of this? It is recommended in First Start French. Thank you...erin.
