  1. We used Singapore until that age too. We love the elementary books, but their upper grade math books were awful, IMO. We really like the "Keys To" series and my two oldest DDs are using the Keys to Algebra. I also bought my oldest DD the Algebra Survival Guide, which is really good at breaking down equations and operations into understandable terms. She is not at all math-minded and this book was really helpful to her.
  2. YAY! Mine are testing the last week of July. I always hold my breath a little until I get the scores back.

Here's my recipe: 3/4 cup milk, warmed to 95 degrees F 4 tablespoons butter, melted 2 tablespoons sugar 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 ounce dry yeast 1/2 cup warm water (110-115 degrees F) 2 + cups whole wheat flour 1 cup rolled oats 1 egg 1/2 cup chopped pecans Combine the milk, butter, sugar and salt, warmed to 95 degrees
  4. Wow, good for you! The homeschool book and curriculum fairs will probably be great for you. My kids are all past the learning to read stage, but I know I bought a ton of stuff like that when they were learning. I hope your business really takes off for you. We had a sad morning. We had to put one of our dogs down. It was the right thing to do, but still really hard and really sad. This afternoon I'm pulling my tomato cages out of the shed and moving my compost pile.
  5. We homeschool our three, ages 17, 13, and 10. We are *extremely* laid back and child led with our schooling. This has worked out well for our family over the last 12 or so years. We don't use a formal curriculum.
  6. I'm so sorry. I cannot begin to imagine the pain of losing a child. I will keep you in my prayers.
  7. Oh my, I'm so glad you got him checked out when you did! I will be praying.
  8. It's so funny to read about everyone cleaning after watching the show because I do the same thing! I always find myself walking around tidying the bedroom while I'm watching.
  9. I take fish oil and it has helped me tremendously. It apparently reduces inflammation in the lungs.
  10. Oh my goodness! I will be praying. I am so afraid of snakes I don't think I'd be able to sleep knowing there might be one (or more) of them in my house. You all are brave!
  11. I really love this. I am going to print it out to share with my husband and possibly some others who don't understand why we like to be prepared. Thank you!
  12. My grandma always cleaned her cast iron of rust by cutting a lemon in half, sprinkling salt in the pan, and then scrubbing with the cut side of the lemon. Then she'd rinse it and dry it or reseason.
