  1. We're moving from NY to MN in a month... Normally, when I send in our 4th quarterly reports, I include a note that we intend to homeschool our kids the following year, and they'll be in such & such grades, etc. Getting those reports ready to send off this week, and now I'm wondering: Is it enough to NOT include the "intent" (just send in our 4th quarterly report, and then drop off the face of the map as far as NYC is concerned)... Or do I need to officially inform the DOE that we're leaving? I didn't see anything on the Office of Home Schooling website. Any help is appreciated. :)
  2. We have grown out of our house and will be putting our house on the market and moving in the next 2-3 months. Do you have any advice for keeping up with school during a move? I need some very practical help and suggestions. I don't feel like we can take a tremendous amount of time off, although I know that some time off will be necessary for packing, actually moving our things, etc. My 5th and 3rd graders are not where I want them to be academically for the year based on my own goals for them, and I want to keep plugging along. Also, reading hasn't totally clicked with my 1st grader, so I don't want to just call off school for her, even though she's still little. (I am a big fan of play based learning, for what it's worth...) I considered doing just the basics: grammar, math, Latin, writing. But we're already behind where I projected us to be in history and science is practically non-existent right now as it is. There's part of me that thinks it's absolutely okay to put school work aside for a month or so and just school through the summer. Yet, there's another part of me that doesn't want us to get any further behind. Any thoughts or suggestions or wisdom? Any experience with moving a whole pile of kids will still schooling them? [My 12 yo is in a private school this year, so I'm only teaching my 10yo, 8yo, and 7yo. There's also the 11-month-old tornado along for the ride.]
  3. I posted in the wrong sub forum. Sorry about that!! Re-posted in the General Ed board.
  4. So, I'm sure there are lots of posts on this already, but I'm not having any luck finding them. Links would be appreciated! We are preparing to list our home for sale, with hopes of moving to a different neighborhood in the same city later this spring. I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around how to get everything "staged" for listing and maintaining a super clean home while homeschooling. I know that lots of people have done this before me, so I hoped you could share your best tips and tricks. Everything from time-management and scheduling to quick routines to get the house ready for a showing. Anything you can think of to make packing, moving, home selling, etc easier. The last time we moved, we were childless and everything we owned fit in one load in a moving truck. Now we have 3000 sq. ft of stuff and 3 kids! I'm overwhelmed before I've even started! Thanks!
  5. Any advice? We are moving from one warm, temperate area in the southwest to another warm temperate area in the southeast! And there they have grass, trees, and beaches! Lucky us. :) How is the housing market? We lean toward renting because we don't know how long we'll be there. Are there homeschool groups you'd recommend there? Anything I should prepare now for our homeschool registration with the district? Anyone know a good Taikwondo dojang in that area? Thanks!
  6. It's looking like our family is going to move to Raleigh....love to talk to any homeschool moms in the Cary/North Raleigh/WAke Forest area. My hubby's job will be in North Raleigh and I wanted to know about homeschool groups and opportunities in the area! I have some other general "area" questions if anyone is interested in answering, you can pm me. Thanks! Mary
  7. There is a new entitlement in the PCS personal property rules that allows spouses to claim 500lbs of spouse professional gear. Has anyone done this? I've been a scout leader for seven years and have done lots of community service with homeschool support groups. I'm not trying to claim all of my homeschooling stuff, but I'd sure like to claim all the various guidebooks and how to homeschool books that I use when counseling new homeschoolers.
  8. Hello all, I am hoping to connect with anyone living in England who is currently homeschooling. My husband has been offered a transfer from the states. He would be working out of Gerrard's Cross mostly and some days Cambourne. I am having a hard time finding out what the HS culture looks like there and what types of social/coop options exsist. I am not very encouraged by what I have found online so far. Anyone, anyone ... would love your thoughts! Thank you!!!
  9. Anyone have great tips for how to get ready to move? We will be moving in 4-6 months--give or take a bit. The highway is coming through our house. If we don't find another hobby farm for sale in our area soon, we will likely be buying 13 acres and building there. That might mean a 1-2 month stay in our camping trailer or apartment during that time. How do I get a household that has been here for 18 years ready to move? I have the 3 special needs kids and all of there stuff and then the garages, barn, and critters to get ready. I was thinking of starting dejunking now in 2 stages: 1. Start in a room and get rid of anything that I don't want to move with us. 2. As I come across things that I know won't move with us (no matter where they are) get rid of those too. I know that my kids do NOT want to get rid of ANYTHING--down to the last of 37 stuffed animals or 83 books, etc. Have you ever been rather ruthless with this and then regretted getting rid of stuff? I am thinking of getting rid of all but 2-3 cook books. After all, those few have almost everything in them I need and I have google for anything else. Same with books (of all horrors:001_huh:)--I am thinking of seriously downsizing our fiction section and keeping some favorites and then our non fiction reference books. We have 2 libraries which are each within 10 miles plus a church library. I am thinking of just boxing stuff up as I come across it and dontating the whole hodge podge to a local thrift store. I could sell some of it but we are in a rural area in the middle of winter here and I don't think my stuff is worth that much, esp. for the hassle involved. Any other tips, ideas for making this go as smooth as possible? We will have professional movers that do all of the moving but my sister said they pack and move EVERTHING---even moved her trash for her:confused: so I want only the minimum here in the house when they come for that.
  10. (Background: moving in with my parents, I have a moving date of the 28th and I'm packing the kids & my stuff for living and storage) My dilemma is: the more stuff I keep, the more I have to store, the larger the storage space I have to rent, the more I have to pack. BUT- if I don't take everything now, I'll have to buy it again later...or will I? This divorcing business is hard. Just moving on its own is stressful, changing jobs...I won't list the many things I'm doing right now b/c *I'm* not even willing to admit to all it without having a panic attack. I look inside my garage and I see an artificial Christmas tree that I won't be using in the next year but it sure would be nice to have when the kids & I have our own place, the list goes on. The kitchen was easy, I separated what I'm taking from what I'm not, the coffee maker was a hard one (I love the coffee maker we have, I bought it but I don't *need* it). I don't need towels but it's hard to let them go. My personal collection of cleaning products, don't need it and I'm not taking but it's hard. I feel like I'm homeless. Lol. How much do I let go? How vigilant should I be in leaving stuff behind? We have a nice outdoor play set, wooden, I want to take it but I'm terrified of taking it apart and not being able to put it back together, or that it won't fit on the moving truck. AHHHHHH! :svengo: Okay, just releasing some crazy,
  11. then why do I feel so "depressed" about it? We are moving out of our first home that we've lived in for about a dozen years. This is the house that we bought together as a married couple; we picked it together, and moved in when my youngest was one. We've seen so many changes here, the yard is great, it has a pool, and I still mark the kids' heights on the kitchen wall, LOL! We've had the same neighbors all this time. But, the bedrooms and bathrooms are really tiny, and we have just outgrown this house. We couldn't get financed for our first choice house with the current market, so we're moving into my mom's old house that's 2 miles away. We already own it as we bought it from her when she moved a year ago. So, the elderly tenants have moved and we are now touching up the paint and replacing carpet. It's in a much better neighborhood, and it's a little bit bigger. The bathrooms are a lot bigger, so is the kitchen. But the yard is a lot smaller and there is no pool (never mind that no one even swam in it last year, LOL). And there is no little lake in front of this house, but there is a wooded lot behind it with owls and such. The neighbors are nice here, too. I'm just not feeling a sense of excitement over moving, and neither are the kids. I'm not even sure my husband is excited. It's a good move for us, but it feels like something we "should" do. It's everything we want to do and we've been wanting to move for years, but now that we're doing it, it just feels so blah. We're supposed to move this month and no one has even started packing. I don't know...how am I supposed to feel? What can I do to make it more exciting for the family? When I look at the wall and think about painting over those little height marks, I tear up. Our tenants who are moving into this house offered to remove the plaster for me and repair it. He's so sweet, sniff!
