  1. We have Classic Cafe Red....they look like this except the cubs were white with a red stripe when I bought them. We had Pfaltzgraf Heritage dishes before, heavy!!! We love these and just keep adding to them. http://www.walmart.com/ip/10251165?wmlspartner=wlpa&adid=22222222227000008770&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=13684133350&wl4=&wl5=pla&wl6=34440412270&veh=sem
  2. Now it won't let me change my password (Your Security Key is Invalid) or (That email is already in use)...... Calgon! Take me AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  3. I've probably done something with some kind of setting somewhere, but I can no longer sign into the site with my FB account. When I try, I get this message..... The page isn't redirecting properly Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies. I've set my computer to accept all cookies, etc (I think it has always been set like that) .....but still can't log in with FB. :(
  4. Could you buy 1/4 inch drywall and put that right over the existing drywall and paper? Tips I've learned from watching far too many hgtv shows and watching actual drywallers install...as well as installing ourselves.... Put the drywall up horizontally....less noticeable seams. Use a damp sponge to gently smooth the wet mud after each application cycle. After the mud has dried....use a clean and dry putty knife to gently smooth over the ridges that may be left....Why sand when a gentle scrapping would suffice....less dust. When all this is done....and it takes a good two or three days to do a GOOD mudding job.....each day a new layer.....then sand. The dust is horrendous!! This is a skill that does realy get better with practice....we just did a wall ourselves and it looks amazing!!! OUr first efforts years ago looked horrible. We are so proud of what we have learned. LOL
  5. When we are ready to start our day.... Sitting in the Living Room: Poetry Our current Read Aloud Shakespeare Move to Table for: Latin Health Composer/Artist Study Folksongs/Hymns Nature Study (sometimes) Drawing Science Lab... Physics Lab in the Supermarket, etc. Each kid in their own "spot": Saxon Math Reading...History/Georgraphy/etc.... Spelling Wisdom for copywork English for the thoughtful child -or- Simply Grammar (depending on the child) Mapwork in the hall with the large wall maps and me... Timeline Book I think that is most of it....we are also going to start practicing writing letters (form, etiquette, handwriting, etc). Not everything is done each day...but you get the general idea. I am pamark1 over at the AO forums. See ya there! :001_smile:
  6. I think it depends on the age of the children..... When younger, my kids used individual desks....now that they are jr. high aged they use a "community table" and the kitchen bar...in other words, wherever they can find room. I have two that are on the same level and the older girl used to cheat off the younger one, so I always had to keep them separate...it isn't as big of a deal now. :D
  7. I'm eating a vanilla caramel drumstick ice cream cone right now........ AWESOME!!!!!!
  8. We moved here from GA three years ago....and love it! I have a baccalaureate degree and my reporting requirements are very few here. I turn in an intent to hs, an abbreviated one because I've already turned in the regular one. I test the kids once a year but the results stay with me, I don't have to turn them in. And other then covering the subject matter, that's about it. I think the "Cities" have very active hsing groups...I don't know except from finding out that all the groups seem to be down there and not up where I am, (Detroit Lakes).
  9. Pay the amount. Have the kid work off the damage and disobedience. Take the scooter away for awhile. Drink a beer and be glad it was just a car and minor disobedience and not anything worse.
  10. I've been to one or two down in GA....but since moving up here, no. I'm waaaaaay too far away from any convention and won't spend the money for a hotel. They were important to me the one or two times I went and was fairly new to homeschooling.....but I've been doing this for about 10 years now and don't feel the need. Besides, I never have any money when the conventions roll into MN. :D
