  1. Does anyone have a recommendation for a basic grammar program for an adult that wants to go back and review? I'm training to be an online ESL teacher and realize I've forgotten a lot of the basics. If I could find a simple program to help me with that without spending a huge amount of money, that would be awesome. I've thought about getting a Grade 5 Rod & Staff Teacher's Manual, but wonder if there's anything better. Thanks for any input you have to offer. Blessings, Lucinda
  2. Interesting that you should mention that company, Chris! Yes, I'm looking into that possibility too!! Blessings, Lucinda P.S. Nice to run into you here again too. :cheers2:
  3. Thank you!! If that isn't the forum I used to frequent, then it's very much like what I was hoping to find. :hurray: :hurray: :hurray: :hurray: :hurray: You are my HERO!! :hurray: :hurray: :hurray: :hurray: :hurray: Blessings, Lucinda
  4. Has anyone found legitimate work from home opportunities that you can share with me? I know that many of you that homeschool are able to do this. I'm very open to new ideas in addition to my original question. I have two part-time jobs away from home, but they aren't enough in themselves to provide the needs of our household. I'm sincerely hoping to find a steady work-from-home position that creates $700-$1000 per month.
  5. Hi again - I just wanted to add that I am connected with resources like the Penny Hoarder Jobs page on FB, etc., but the forum I used to go to was actually for contractors that were working for companies and had up to date info on who is hiring, where, etc. It was a wealth of information. I just can't remember the name of it and want to find it again so much. Thanks for reading, and please do chime in if you have even a clue of what I'm talking about. Blessings, Lucinda
  6. Hi there - I haven't posted on this forum in a very long time, but thought I'd drop in and post a question. Years ago I found a wealth of information here on legitimate work from home opportunities. There was another forum that several hive members were connected to, and I actually found a temp job that helped out until I found a more permanent job elsewhere. I'm now semi retired and need to find resources like what I'd found in the past. Does anyone know what online forum I'm talking about? I know that companies like 1-800-flowers, Lionbridge, Leapforce, and many others were represented on th
  7. I have a student who has completed her sophomore year at a classical ed private school, and yes -- Latin is completely acceptable as a foreign language when entering college. I have been on faculty at that school for eight years and have seen many, many graduates go on to colleges and university based on completing 3 years of Latin and one year of Greek. They've done extremely well.
  8. Haven't been here in a while and just wanted to check in. It's great to see the hs community thriving and doing well!

  9. Wow!! This is a great idea, MomOfOneFunOne! I really like your suggestion here and am going to explore more ideas along those lines. Blessings, Lucinda
  10. Hi back, OhElizabeth! Thanks for popping in. I like your suggestions, AK_Mom4. Thanks for sharing. Bring on some more, folks! I'd love to use this little crock pot for more than keeping canned soup warm. Blessings, Lucinda
  11. It's been a long time since I was here, but since I'm about to ask for crockpot ideas I knew where to go for advice!! But rather than ideas for the whole family, I need help just for me for lunches. You see, I'm working more hours as an art teacher at a school now and for Christmas I got a little 2-qt. crockpot, a small ladle and a matching Corningware mug. They are sooooooo cute, but I haven't come up with any healthy ideas that would be good for me during a work day. I'd love to stay low carb, so that limits a lot already. Can anyone throw out some suggestions? Thanks so much. Bl
  12. Thank you for suggesting this book, JustKate! I just perused it over on Amazon and am thrilled. It's a little spendy, but if it helps one gain health then it will pay for itself in no time. I'm like the OP in that I know I need to improve my lifestyle, but haven't been able to sort through all the plans that are out there. I've already made some very positive changes to what I eat, but there is certainly room to grow. I rarely eat junk food, drink sodas once in a blue moon, don't smoke, and I do eat whole grains and less white bread and pasta. Yet I am challenged to stay consistent on the
  13. Thank you both for your input. I think that the one course I'd choose from the elementary level is on anatomy, but after reading your posts I think I should compare the anatomy for grammar stage with the high school level anatomy and physiology books side by side. I'll also take a look at BJU to see what they have, but as you can see my major interest in science is the human body. I'm just fascinated by God's design and how our bodies function! Anatomy specifically in addition to biology would be wonderful. I don't know how far I'd want to go since I'd need a microscope and lab area in additi
  14. After hs'ing for six years, I'm going to be sending my dd off to high school now. It's occurred to me recently that I can actually take some time for my own self-education now, and although I'm very passionate about the arts, I'm also very interested in literature, history and some areas of science. I'm looking around to see what choices there are for me and have discovered that there really aren't many options for a creation based science course for an adult that's already been to college and graduated with an art degree. :huh: So I've been thinking about going back to hs elementary courses,
  15. :lurk5: I own the book and have it sitting right here next to me on the couch as I've been reading this thread. Your discussion makes me want to move forward, so thank you! My dd is going to school next year after 6 years with me at home. One thing I've discovered lately is how much I've loved the hs journey and how much I've gotten from it personally. I've come to the conclusion that I should move on into a self directed continuing education path. Literature and science are areas of interest for me to pursue, so I think I'll get the reading plan from WEM and also buy an Apologia Science t

  20. Packing away 8th grade records. Our hs journey is over and I feel so conflicted...

      I hear you. In the same boat here.

      Hugs for you both!

  21. Did you grow GOLDEN beets? They are fantastic -- especially roasted. Around here they aren't that readily available unless you're with an organic CSA like we are, eat at upscale restaurants or grow them yourself. Blessings, Lucinda
  22. This is what I do too, and I never parboil them first. I peel them and chop into chunks then toss with the desired oil and herbs. When they are roasted this way it caramelizes the edges and they become sweet. We love our roasted beets either hot or cold. I've even tried a variety of herbs added to the olive oil and salt and they are so delicious. If you're adventuresome -- try them with curry. Deeelish! You can also shred the peeled, raw beets, and add egg, flour and salt and pepper. Form this mixture into small patties and fry them in oil until golden brown. Blot with a paper towel and s
  23. The Mitford series isn't one that you jump right into and love, Chris. I found it to be one that had to build up, but became very enjoyable reading. There was a point about three books down the list that I just really loved the characters. In fact, I think that is Karon's greatest strength as a writer. Then by the time I read the newest books about Father Tim, I felt that she'd built his character and story superbly throughout the whole two series of stories. Each to their own, but if you have the chance to try them again you just may have a different opinion. Blessings, Lucinda P
  24. I totally agree and had to vote Other for the same reason. I'm extremely happy with my iPhone and MacBook combination. Not only do I prefer the quality and longevity of Apple/Mac products, but I love how they sync together so beautifully. I especially love the quality of the iPhone camera and the way it works with iPhoto. Smooth process and great pictures! Blessings, Lucinda
