  1. My daughter is a bit older, but she just got an acceptance as a transfer student to UT Dallas. She will continue living at home so she can save money. Jan
  2. Does anyone have any experience (good or bad) with homeschool-life.com? I am curious about how it works for a homeschool co-op. Jan
  3. Does anyone have some alternatives? My dogs get a treat every night and my cat feels left out if she doesn't get something. Jan
  4. Thanks everyone. I think I will order a panel of thyroid lab tests and see what my numbers are. Then go from there. I don't want to make a big deal out of this if it is nothing (and nodules are using nothing), but I don't want to ignore it either. I know that she normally tests my TSH, but I don't know if she has ever tested any other thyroid numbers. I do have an appointment with an orthopedic for the numbness. That was her recommendation after the MRI. Before the MRI she suggested that I see a neurologist and I don't know if I am still supposed to do that or not. Jan
  5. I have been having pain and numbness in my hand and arm. My primary care doctor sent me to have an MRI of my neck. One of the things discovered on the MRI was a large nodule on my thyroid. The imagining place recommended that I get an ultrasound done of my thyroid. I did that. The nurse from my primary care doctor's office called me back and said that it is a solid mass and to just monitor it every few years (1, 3, and 5). Both of my kids have low thyroid (one has hashimoto). Something about this doesn't quite feel right, but I don't know where to go from here. Any suggestions on what type of
  6. My current favorite is DPC Digitals. She has a ton of freebies. https://dpcdigitals.com/freebies/
  7. The other chemistry course Chemistry and Our Universe on great courses is much better. I have great courses plus and the two courses are very different. I am not using it as a stand alone course though. I mainly use it to supplement my knowledge since it has been a long time since I took chemistry.
  8. My son's friend had the same experience. The essay and a 5th section. I think he may not have gotten out until a little after 2.
  9. Is it more common to have the 5th section earlier in the year? I know my son and a friend of his both had a 5th section. It did catch my son off guard because he wasn't expecting it.
  10. I have not tried magnesium oil, but I love magnesium lotion. I have used the Lifeflo brand. I read somewhere that the lotion is less likely to cause itching. So far the lotion has worked so well that I haven't found the need to try the oil.
  11. I tried finding a computer program to do this sort of thing. I couldn't find one that I liked that was inexpensive. I have found several apps for my phone/tablet that do this and so much more. My favorite is GoodNotes, but I have also used ZoomNotes and Notability.
  12. My daughter has had good luck with the tall sized clothing at Old Navy.
  13. This describes my husband. He is fine around live trees, but is allergic to the mold that grows on the trees after they are cut.
  14. Thank you to those who have responded. This has helped. He does want to move ahead, but I don't think he is solid in algebra 1. He didn't do a very strong algebra 1 curriculum. He took a class with his friends. I love algebra. I am teaching algebra 1 this year and using a different curriculum. I think I am going to have him come to some of my tutoring sessions in the spring so he can review with other people. Then once co-op is over he should be ready to start algebra 2 which is what he wants to do. After he works through algebra 2 and trigonometry I will reevaluate. It helps to know tha
