  1. What sorts of curricula or other materials have your children found interesting and thought-provoking in your home school?
  2. So, i'm really really trying to start cooking real food- i'm super overwhelmed with life and so i can't make a big affair of it, i'll take shortcuts when i can, like buying premade pizza dough, etc, but i HAVE to get our finances in order and i HAVE to feed our family healthfully. i know others are in this position too, so i thought this might be a good topic to think tank, some of my faves- Chili- can be vegetarian or throw in some chicken/turkey/gr. beef 2-3 cans diced tomatoes 3-4 cans beans (or equivalent reconstituted) 2 cans corn Onions, peppers, whatever veggies are handy, diced meat if you'd like cumin to taste taco seasoning to taste (i buy ours in the big costco sprinkle container) mix up till it looks good, cook for a while, voila, brainless, easy, simple. ] I like to serve ours with cheddar cheese, sour cream and fritos for dipping Spaghetti and meatballs whole wheat spaghetti- the costco kind tastes normal! prepared spaghetti sauce costco frozen meatballs Serve with garlic bread and salad Ok, i guess that's it. I'm not much of a cook :)
  3. We are a blue collar family, a self-educated one with reasonably intelligent parents and children. One of our goals for homeschooling was to intentionally get off the college bandwagon. You know what I mean, and for many this is entirely wrong (I realize that), but we didn't want our kids losing their teen years to what we feel is needless fretting over SAT's, extracurricular activities maxed out, ridiculous AP classes, etc. We also are really looking at the huge shift our country is undergoing and realizing that the old way of ensuring "success" may indeed not work so well anymore. We are not against college, if one of our kids has a goal that requires it, and we are absolutely going to guide toward post high school training of some sort, be it trade/technical, military, or other options out there. However, we decided long ago that our system works backwards, that we push for college and then try and figure out careers rather than trying to establish what career is desired then working toward the necessary education for that career. College for the sake of college is great for some folks, but for those who are unwilling to go into debt for personal exploration, it is not a good idea. A couple of days ago, our 6th grade children were asked if they were going to college and where they wanted to go. 6th grade...really? My kids responded that they were not sure they were going to college, that they did not want to go needlessly into debt unless they were certain what they wanted to do...and that too many college graduates were in the unemployment line and so they might look in other directions like self-employment, or trades of some sort. The woman asking them looked at them as if they were nuts, and told them they needed to seriously rethink that, implying college was the only way to go. I heard about this after the fact, and was dismayed. We have warned our kids that as they grow older they are going to be faced with this question, and that others will think it is irresponsible of us, as their parents, to not insist they go to college. While I totally respect those that feel strongly about college for their kids, I think we are all going to see a radical paradigm shift in what higher ed looks like in the coming years. We also want our kids to understand on a very deep level that college and Big Careers simply do not equate to happiness, that happiness comes from a variety of sources, many of which have nothing to do with a college degree. Again, not negating college, but trying to place it in a more appropriate place rather than high up on the mantle. It CAN mean happiness if you are pursuing the career of your dreams, and we'd support that all the way! So I am wondering how others feel about this, about what an appropriate response should be to those who vehemently try to persuade our kids that there is only "one way". We are an out of the box sort of family, entrepreneurial in nature, and because 3 of our children came home as older adopted kids we simply do not need to place the sort of pressure on them that the traditional route causes. We feel there is always community college to fill in gaps or begin to explore college, no need for SAT's there nor all that pressure about "getting in", and we'd much prefer that. So Hive, am I all screwed up? If so, slap me up side the head! Or are there others out there who are seeing things change, questioning the traditional model, or flat out refusing to buy into the norm when there are other ways to achieve the same goal (CLEP tests, etc.). I need to hear from you! Cindy
  4. I've had a lot of big realizations lately about how I'm still broken from childhood stuff I wish I was over... infidelity on both parents' parts, dad who left, mom who treated me as a peer and was emotionally absent in terms of supporting me, etc. I'm seeing ways I still unhealthily look for approval/affection/acceptance from others rather than being whole in Christ and able to really love others from a place of satisfaction in Him. I don't know if this is making sense, but I guess what I'm saying is that I'm seeing I am more "messed up" than I realized and I need help. In the past, I have dismissed all books that weren't by certain types of heavy-hitting authors (like Piper, Keller, Bridges, etc) as "fluff" or psycho-babble. But I think I need to broaden my mind in terms of what might help me work through stuff. I still want it to be biblically sound, but I'm not as suspicious of touchy-feely as I once was. I have a sense that I need to experience God's love in deep ways that I think I never have. So... if you have a painful past, and there's a book that helped you work through it (esp. a book that looks to Jesus/the Bible as the ultimate source of healing), I would love to know what it is! Thanks.
  5. Here's the thread it came from and below that is the post you made. http://www.welltrainedmind.com/forums/showthread.php?p=3351201&highlight=rabbit#post3351201 That post was in Nov. of this past year, and I've been wondering how the rest of the year went for you. When we met at the convention you seemed very happy about your year. Did you make a shift toward more rabbit trails or interest-driven? Did you find another way to get peace? Anything you plan to do differently for this coming year based on what you learned this year?
  6. I'm wondering how far people go when planning out the new school year. Previously I have chosen and collected the curriculum and I sit down once a week to plan out what's going to happen in the upcoming week. This approach is not working for my daughter or I. We are behind in a number of subjects which has interrupted a planned summer-long break. I have sat down with a monthly calendar and mapped out what should be done when (i.e., Monday new SOTW ch, WWS, SM, etc). Reading what other people do it sounds like they plan out the whole year in advance, day by day what page in each subject will be done along with holidays and the like. So how do you plan out a new school year? What do you use to do it with? Can you hand your kids a sheet of assignments for a day and have said child get them all done?
  7. I feel like I'm missing subjects in trying to plan for next year. I'm not looking for specific curric, just the subjects. Thanks.
  8. Hi All! I really need to exercise and am looking for a good DVD program that I could do at home. I've tried some "Crunch" videos on Netflix and...well...not a huge fan. What is your favorite exercise DVD program? I want something that really gets the heart rate up - the equivalent of a gym class at home. Aerobics are a definite, but some weights and pilates would be nice too. Any ideas? Isn't there a something something 90? Or something? :001_smile: Thanks! P.S. My two young daughters have a strange fascination in watching me exercise...find it very amusing for some reason. :) SO, please no programs that have the pelvic region gyrating in, er, interesting ways....
  9. Have you ever totally dismissed a curriculum or homeschool material and then later had a chance to really look at it or use it and completely changed your mind about it? If so, what curricula and what changed your mind?
