  1. I wanna know if anyone buys or sells from Amway. What do you think of the compay and what has your experience with them been? I'm asking because my mom has gotten involved and is constantly nagging me to get involved as well. I'm a bit skeptical because i've gotten involved in companies like this before and the outcome has always ended up to be a waste of time. She keeps talking up the products but I've looked at the list of ingredients and basicaly the products I use now are much better. any input i can get here from you guys would be helpful because she is driving me crazy constantly talking about this company and how she's gonna get rich and then I'll be sorry. I kinda don't wanna say anything to her because I feel like there are somethings in life that are better learned on their own. I kinda feel like she's putting all her eggs in one basket when i feel like she should be doing this on the side for some extra income and let it slowly develop into a good income living. But i don't see her getting rich here. Am I wrong?
  2. Can a rant be polite? I tried to make it that way. Yesterday evening, my children's lovely, patient, wonderful Choir Director (the woman has the patience of a saint!) sent out an email with instructions for this Sunday (kids are singing), and a request for two families to provide a 'TREAT' (she specifically stated cheese, crackers, veggies, cookies, drinks) for Sunday evening's rehearsal for a little celebration for singing at two services Sunday morning. There are 26 children in junior choir. This morning, SIX families had responded -- (everyone had hit reply all so we were all on the same page)...four families said they would bring cupcakes, the other two families said they would bring cookies. :rant: I realize that the 'no sugar' thing is my own personal little soapbox in most circles, but I am SO tired of the sugar issue being ignored -- I respect and understand kids and peanut and nut allergies....to the point that when we have birthday parties, I make certain the pizza is ordered from the ONLY pizza place that the other mom trusts...and I accomodate her child in other ways as well. I think it is considerate, responsible, and the right thing to do. Sugar is to my kids what nuts are to kids who have nut allergies. A cupcake eaten at 6:30pm on a Sunday will continue to affect my children (the twins especially) until midnight. So, today (sorry -- I aLWAYS ramble) when the sixth offer for cupcakes and or cookies was made, I sent the following email to the group: I am most appreciative of the kind offers that have been made to provide cupcakes and cookies for Sunday's little celebration. I will bring something to add to the celebration that is not quite as 'sugar-intensive.' My children react to sugar the way 'peanut-allergic' children react to nuts -- their reaction is quite strong and the negative effects of the sugar will remain with them for hours. One cupcake eaten at that hour of the day will create havoc till amost midnight. I will provide small bottles of water for Sunday and perhaps cheese and crackers or veggies. Thank you again for your kind contributions -- Mariann A***** The choir director immediately responded with a thank you for all the offers, and a very specifically worded thank you for the water/veggie/cheese/crackers. Am I the ONLY mom who bristles at the indifference that some others have to the junk they give their kids to eat? I am not being snarky........I've been doing this 'mom-thing' for 30 years now. When DD30 was 5 or 6, if a mom provided a sugar-y snack, she was treated like a pariah -- no kidding! Has the pendulum swung the other way? Am I seeing those kids who were given raisins and apples as 'treats' now pushing cupcakes and cookies b/c they were not given those things?
  3. Not CC... ;) Does anyone who isn't Christian send their kids to Vacation Bible School? I know it sounds totally backwards and odd, so bear with me. Becca attended a MDO preschool for two years at a local church. Sylvia went there for a few months. I loved it, the girls loved it, they loved us... We left because preschool just wasn't Sylvie's thing and she wanted to be homeschooled too, but inside I miss the director and teachers. We live in a small town, so if the girls go to VBS they could meet up with some of their friends and former teachers. But... we're not Christian, we don't go to church, and I don't want to teach doctrine of any kind to the girls. I realize that's the point of VBS, but do you think they're young enough to gloss over that part? I'm torn. It doesn't start until the end of July, but I figured it wasn't too early to ask the Hive for thoughts! (Oh, and as to why as non-Christians we were attending a church-based preschool, it was affordable! The religious aspect was minor and we were just loved. So it was a perfect fit. :))
  4. Why does it get such a bad rap for high school math? If I followed their sequence all the way through, wouldn't I cover the same material as any other curriculum? Please help me understand why everyone seems to be so negative about using it in the upper grades. Smiles, Shalynn
  5. Where are all the old posters? Did they all go to a different board?:confused: Where? The good, lively discussions we used to have seem to be a thing of the past now......or is that because we all have nice, calm, wonderful lives, lol! :D I miss all those deep discussions. Just wondering if I got left behind........
  6. We are doing Cambridge Latin 1 right now, and DS LOVES it. As in, "it's not school, it's a bedtime treat" loves it. Cambridge is nearly painless, and the humor is JUST right up a boy's alley. The intuitive approach with supporting grammar is the best for languages, and Cambridge does it brilliantly.
  7. I have posted about this before, so I"ll be brief. Dd16 has completed TT Algebra 1 and is doing TT Geometry this year to be completed during the summer. We have curriculum hopped with math so many times because she just didn't get Algebra...tried Saxon, Lial's, Foerster's, TT (but obviously went back to it as a last resort). She is currently a 10th grader. I know she on the "average" track for math and am fine with that. Here's our problem: As stated many times, TT Algebra 1 doesn't cover some topics that students are expected to know for PSAT/SAT. I have tried to determine exactly what those topics are, but can't because of the "different" TOC. Also, we have come to find out, after looking through some other Algebra 1 books, the TT terminology is not traditional...yes, the topics taught probably are, but my dd looked at another book and had not heard some of the terminology before!!! I'm thinking this is a problem. If I could figure out what's "off" about TT, I'd cover those things on the side. But it's very difficult to sift through that whole book and compare it to another to figure that out. So, I'm NOT even going to try. I think her best bet would be to either re-cover Algebra 1 by some other means so she can hear the correct terminology and see the "traditional" methods that will be on the PSAT this coming fall. She is also doing test prep online and we have a test book. I don't feel good about shoving her into a different Algebra 2 program without her knowing the Algebra 1 better. We want to go a completely traditional route from here on out. She takes some courses through Keystone. We tried their Algebra 1 last fall, but she had trouble with it at that time...I should have made her suck it up and work through it, but I didn't and I'm sorry. But, I'm wondering now if that might fit the bill? She could probably get through that course now at an accelerated pace since she's already had TT Algebra 1...and then move right into their Algebra 2 in the fall. hmmmm.... Please help me sort through this. I feel I have not served dd very will in math...everything else is great...I cannot do upper level math so she's self-taught. And, although TT has filled a definite need to move slower and be a bit simpler, she needs to move on. I feel as if she is behind now having used TT...it's as if she's only had pre-algebra...she needs to do a traditional program from now on. Thanks, Robin
  8. See? Not killing him. Two nights ago, he learned long division for fun in 15 minutes. Today, he cannot add and has now taken 4.5 hours to do 30 min worth of math (with a 1 hr!!!! potty break in the middle). Not. Killing. My. Son. Thankyouverymuch.
  9. I have a question for those of you who jog. I've been doing step aerobics for nearly 6 months now, and it's pretty intense. The instruction changes the routine each week and then adds a lot of planks and air jack type things. But on the weekends or days that I don't get up at 5:15, I have been trying to do elliptical and treadmill work to vary my routine. On a whim two weeks ago I decided to start jogging on the treadmill. I started with 5 minutes, but today I challenged myself to do 15 (I know, small potatoes). I'm pretty good at pacing myself, but I do wonder if I should try jogging in a neighborhood or elsewhere. Is it that much harder to jog on the sidewalk/road? I really would like to enter a 5K at some point (after training for it). I don't know if going on a treadmill to the gym would train me that well though. Obviously, if I have a fan in front of me and ear phones plugged into a TV that is a little different than going out with an Ipod into the east Texas heat (where on some days it can be intensely humid at 6:00 a.m.). So hit me with your advice, is there a way to ease into training myself outdoors and away from the treadmill, or should I just stick to my routine? BTW, do any of you ever crave jogging? I find my legs just wanting to move. Thanks again, Erin
