  1. Hi All, We are planning a Hawaiian family vacation this Fall. As such we would like to hear any experience other folks have had with cool things to do and see on Kauai with children (9,10,13). We primarily enjoy the outdoors including waterfalls, beaches, body boarding, snorkeling and hiking. Of course anything historic or cultural would be of interest as well. My wife and I have been there once on our anniversary decades ago in the Winter. But it rained the entire time and was actually cold. So this time we want to try to time it better and go just after Summer (late Sept/early Oct). Thanks for any ideas or input,
  2. I am looking for a Spanish curriculum we can use together as a family. Any suggestions? Grades PK-6
  3. As I mentioned in the family theme-costume thread, DD is going as Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Any bright ideas for what to make DS? He's only 2 1/2 and doesn't seem to have an opinion himself on what he wants to be for Halloween. Something that coordinates with Buffy would be great, but it can also be his own thing. We have some hand me down costumes, but the tiger (from last year) is too small, and the lion costume is too big. We need to not spend much. I could probably make him a "knight" or "prince" with medieval SCA garb, but for SCAdian kids, "that's not a costume, mom, that's just garb." (According to DD). At the same time, I'm stupid busy and don't have a lot of time for a costume-making project. DD's costume cost nothing. She's wearing an outfit similar to something Buffy wears in an early-season starting credits shot, pulled from her existing wardrobe, and carrying a wooden stake. The only thing I might spend money on is a cheap cross necklace, since Buffy always wears one.
  4. There are many advantages to Home Schooling or Distance Learning, but this is one that we had not anticipated... My wife has mentioned this, a number of times. After DD switched, from a brick and mortar (actually, concrete and brick) school here, to Distance Learning from Texas Tech University ISD (TTUISD), within the first semester, our family became much closer. When DD attended the "brick and mortar" school, I would wake her and my wife, at 450 A.M., on school days. A mad dash (Breakfast, brush your teeth, etc.) and they left for the corner, to wait for the van, at 550 A.M. At 3 P.M., I would walk to the corner, to wait for the van to bring DD home. Now, we eat meals together, as a family, we talk a lot more, and the family is more close knit. :-)
  5. Y'all remember my thread from last week about my sis's comments about our homeschooling. Well, guess who has jumped on the bandwagon? My father! I am so upset. I will probably delete this. I call him to tell him our dog was attacked by a bobcat, expecting perhaps a wee bit of sympathy. Instead, he immediately starts to ask when we are going to put older into public school ("what with your business doing well, you really need to be able to get out more.") He said that my son "needs more than just to sit home all day" and needs "friends other than other homeschoolers". That "the local middle school produces stellar students" (HAHAHA!) and by the way, does my son have a cell phone? At that second, my phone died, so he calls back. Meanwhile, I am assuming that he asked if my son has a phone because he thinks he needs to correspond, ie text, his friends or some such thing. So I am thinking of all these smart aleck comebacks. He does call back and says "Oh, you know the reason I ask about the cell phone is that I DONT think he should get one." Yea right. My half sister is 12 years old and in the local middle, so I know in some waysx he is trying to get me to send my older to ps so that it justifies how HE and his wife have decided to raise her. I said "I really dont think its appropriate for a 10 year old, or C (my half sister) to have a cell phone" Dad; "Well, all her friends have one." (omg) Me: "And how is that relevant? A lot of kids do drugs too." Dad "YOu know you're right, she's always going on about how her friend didn't "like" her photo or how she wasn't invited to a party." Me; "I am actually surprised you allow her to have one, and I think it's totally inappropriate." (since we're giving unsolicitied advice here) Dad: "Well, you know that was M (his wife) and she doesn't want C to feel left out. But man, those girsl are SO mean." Me: "And yet you think L (my son) would benefit from school?" Dad: "Actually, you know, we have guests here I really need to go. Let;s talk more about this."' I am so livid. I have never, ever asked his advice about homeschoo.l. I DID ask his advice on my new business, which seems to have opened the door to allow him to comment on my entire life. "You reall yneed to be able to get out there and live your life. I mean, what are you going to do when he DOES go to school?" As though I do NOTHING outside of homeschooling (not working as an acupuncturist, or starting a new business, or exercising or working the land or visiting museums or cooking or learning a new language). Ever since we moved to "the country" (we are like 10 minutes from town!) he thinks we've turned into rural bumpkins and our kids are going to be weird, unsocialized oddities. Nevermind that his daughter (the 6th grader) acts like a 17 year old, makeuip, heels, texting constantly. THAT's okay, right? But god forbid I raise kids who help out the family, help DH at work, know how to start a business (older is helping me with quickbooks for the business), learn about the hard work that goes into running a family, keeping chickens, starting a business.... Oh, and the CHICKENS!! I think that sent him over the edge. NOt only are my kids rural, unsocialized oddballs (nevermind the hockey, the coops, the beach days, the playdates ALL the time, the afterschool program they are in while I work) but THEY HAVE CHICKENS!!!!!!! WHAT'S NEXT????? :cursing: :cursing: Eta: I sent him a quick, informal text asking if we could please refrain from discussing the pros and cons of homeschooling. He wrote back "agreed".
  6. A video was shared from a 13 year old girl cousin with girl cousins ranging from ages 14 to 7. My two daughters, who were part of the group, refused to watch it and one of them came and told me. My husband was pretty upset and confronted the cousin who was watching it. Come to find out his sister, the girl's mother. had given the okay for her to download this video and show it to her cousin. We are now be labeled as judgmental and sheltering our children! This is NOT the first time something like this has happened. Their solution is that the younger ones can leave the room and also the children need to learn how to get along without parental supervision and if someone tattles they will get in trouble along with the trouble maker Appreciate any input.

  7. Hosting a giveaway for this game on my blog right now and I'd love to get a few more entries. Not specifically homeschooling-related, but I thought some of us might have kids who'd be interested in it, particularly because it seems like a good game for big kids and little kids (reading) to play together. Because I have many Jewish readers, I do mention that a "Jewish Fluxx" expansion pack is available; if you win, you can choose whether or not you want to receive that. Without it, it's just the regular game. :-) Click here to enter between now and Friday, Dec 21!
