    Introduction to Formal Logic by Classical Academic Press. This set includes the Teacher's Edition and student text. Purchased BRAND new last year and used by one student/teacher. Student text has some minimal erased pencil on some pages of the first three chapters from light pencil writing, but over 95% of the book is completely unused. TE has very slight wear on front cover. This is a very good deal on excellent curriculum. Price includes USPS Media Rate postage

  11. Sunny in the Pacific NW yesterday and today. Welcome, spring!

  12. Trying to decide on blog choices. Hmmmmm....

  13. the combination of working and homeschooling is challenging, but doable.

      I completely agree. And poor attitudes don't help (either the parental units' or the learners' attitudes)

  14. Oh Christmas break, oh Christmas break - how very much I love you!

  15. We're halfway through our last year of hs'ing! How bittersweet...

    1. mom31257


      Awww, that will be!

  16. Hmmmmm....checking out the new site and it looks lovely!

  17. Thank you Michelle. I also want to help others, and always hope that at least someone gains from the things I share. Like you, I'll continue to post. :~)




  18. We have used TT6 and TT7, and I have to say that my dd has made a phenomenal turn-around. We tried Saxon and MUS before landing on TT, and it is here that we will stay. The only supplement we use is LOF once per week just for fun and variety. It isn't needed particularly, I'm just hoping to add even more fun to the weekly math schedule, per TWTM recommendation. Blessings, Lucinda
  19. I wrote the info down after reading this post during the summer, and I ran across my note this week. I had decided to watch the movie in the fall when we finish our unit on Rome and the timing is perfect. We did watch it this evening, and it was pretty good. I would give a heads up though, as there is a reference to masters sleeping with slaves that some children may or may not even catch, yet it is there. I would not recommend this for young children anyway due to the scary nature of the whole event, but for Logic and Rhetoric stage it is very interesting. Blessings, Lucinda
  20. This is perfect! I've tried to find book recommendations through Amazon, but could never get these types of results! Thanks so much for sharing the link. You made my day! Blessings, Lucinda
  21. Wow! Thanks for all the suggestions, fellow Hive members! I will head over to Amazon and take a peak. We have the entire Thoene collection and both dh and my mom have read every single one. They LOVE these books. I will have to read them myself, but I think I'll hold off until winter. Blessings to all, Lucinda
  22. We'll give these a try. Thank you! I'm scratching my head over the idea of Hank H. (The Bible Answer Man) being an author of historical novels because he is such a character, but what the hay. :D Blessings, Lucinda
  23. We love, love, love TOG at our house, so that covers history, literature and composition. I cannot believe how much my dd learned last year!! It has been amazing for us both because I'm enjoying learning with her, and found it such a joy to watch her download so much information and be interested in it. As for math, it has to be TT, hands down. What a lifesaver for my dd and our family. Blessings, Lucinda
  24. Anybody read these books and know the authors enough to make a recommendation? Thanks, Lucinda
  25. The authors are a married couple by the names of Brock and Bodie Thoene (pronounced Tay-nee). Here is a link to their website with a list of all the books. They are just amazing stories, and like I said, very accurate in their account of history. The question is for my husband, not my dd. I'm looking for good books suggestions for him. Thanks! Blessings, Lucinda
