  1. Writing an article about anything negative toward homeschooling is not good at all. Majority of parents homeschooling want to be homeschooling and are doing the very best for their family and children. No need to bring attention to something that is few and far between and adding fuel to a fire of those against homeschooling to begin with....
  2. Ok ok.....I know.....but you know what I mean don't ya.. :D
  3. Unless it means something or has been used in the last six months..... I'm about to toss it! Simplify my home ..... I don't have a lot but I have too much, it's driving me crazy! I'm with ya!
  4. DH ...... Leaves around 7am doesn't come home until 7pm. We don't divide. I do what I can. Oh except cut trees for firewood. But I do haul it and split it. There came a time that I realized that I couldn't do it all, then I was able to get off antidepressants and be happy again. No schedule, clean as I can or want to.... There will be a day when all the kids are gone and my house will be spotless, until then, ain't gonna happen! :lol:
  5. Abeka starts cursive in first grade. You might can check around and see what others say about starting it that early with abeka. My seven yo begged to do cursive, my oldest wanted to do cursive at six. And they are boys! Ha ha!
  6. I think that I would just let him do AAS with older sibs, anything else might bore him. Is he asking for something?
  7. Preface: no experience in this happening Doesn't it just stink that printing starts at the top, yet cursive starts at the bottom? My 7yo still starts some of his letters and numbers at the bottom. I just try to remind him when I see it, but then I think, he'll be ahead once he starts cursive. Do you think your daughter might want to start cursive? Just a thought. I don't think anything is wrong, she just wants to write that way. My middle son grabs his pencil very strange, but he is correcting himself as he learns cursive.
  8. "School" is a specific building my son, you are not in "school" anymore! :001_smile: We use the term, book work. My kids are indoctrinated as well. They've been in school for two years. We are getting there, very slowly.
  9. Personally, I would continue TT, I'd get a MCP math workbook and an abacus, let him do three or so pages of review with the abacus. And the Flashmaster, pricey but worth it.
  10. You are correct! Got mine today! I got the wrong binders though... Still confused on them. Read where 3:1 coil binding can be used, found some at mybinding.com but....found much much much cheaper at Bestbuybinding.com But can't find any reviews on Bestbuybinding.com. I mean they are lots cheaper there but scared to order from them.
  11. Thread title is ' friend wants abortion WWYD' I would beg her to let me adopt the child. Or I would ask if I could keep the child for her and help her. She could be auntie. What she is thinking of doing is so wrong on so many levels that reading this makes me physically sick, that's my opinion and I have a right to it.
  12. Whew...glad someone else asked! LOL We are coming home and I have one going into 5th grade. Trying to place him in stuff and I keep getting the feeling he's in 5th grade half a year... Then I've checked my others... Same with my one going into 2nd. I keep getting the feeling he is 2nd and half. Frustrating.
  13. Seems like you have it figured out now! You go girl, get away from THAT woman...how embarrassing. And um....unnerving! :tongue_smilie:
  14. I had started my oldest in TT3 right before putting him in school. He was behind in math. We got through it and he caught up at school rather well. He will be in 5th grade and I was planning TT6 for him with evan moor daily math. I am going to put my 2nd grader in TT3 and I got a 2nd grade MCP math book as well. I'm starting to think I may just drop the whole TT idea. Seriously. Even my friend children are testing low using TT. I downloaded CLE placement test. And I've also considered BJU. I don't care for anything Abeka. Anyway.... Watching this thread. Thank you OP
  15. :lurk5: When they were younger each has a different color crate that had their books. We used bookmarks and for my oldest I wrote on the board his work each day. Now that I will have three, all trying to get them to work independently... I'm all ears in this thread. Some good ideas so far!
  16. Yes, thank you. I checked the mail just today from Friday and Saturday's mail and nothing ... Crossing my fingers for earlier this week then....
  17. I'm a little concerned now, I haven't received my package. Anyone else?
  18. It's good, I dont have to pamper my MIL this year!! Her favorite niece that she has said numerous times that she thinks as her own is spending the week with her and she just doesn't have time for us to visit or to come to our home... So A-OK!!! Thing is, we will be crap because we didn't spend the day with her and her niece. We are going to look at a lake property and then my dad is going to grill steaks for everyone... Which I can't eat because I'm suffering from TMJ right now and need some help bad... All I want is my kids to get along and stop bad mouthing me... If I don't clean it will just be piled up for tomorrow..... Oh well.
  19. I ask my boys so many times to do things, only to end up yelling and I'm sick of it! I don't know what to do either! As for a gift, Lordy be girl... I never expect anything from anyone so I don't get disappointed. I know it sounds pessimistic but that's just how my life has become, I get it from my mom... Not that I'm suggesting that, it's just how I handle disappointment. I have this vision of the mother I want to be in my head... Only to dissapoint myself everyday. I sometimes wonder if that's when my yelling comes from... Because when they don't mind I start downing myself in my mind... Asking myself where I went wrong that my boys won't listen... What have I done? Wish they had come with a manual.... That sure would have been nice. All this to say, you ARE NOT alone!! :banghead: I wish these would work....:chillpill:
  20. I think it's enough. I don't really know what dancing bears is... But... I'm trying to decide on PLL or FLL. Spelling Workout WWE2 since I have... But I may look at WWE1 read McGuffey and anything he wants I may and I say MAY add in Reading Comprehension Plus
  21. I use mother of divine grace for history. Seton religion and put together the rest.
  22. I'll never forget doing the same thing. It is so, so tough to make that move, I cried the entire visit, the doctor just hugged and hugged me and told me that he was going to help me feel better. You are in my thoughts and prayers, you will be so relieved once it's over.
  23. I had it as a child, all I did was wear ace bandages to help support my knees.... PT can get expensive if insurance doesn't cover 100%. Seems like I only had it for one year.
