Re: Who uses packaged programs?

We have in the past. We used Sonlight (horrid, as it turned out) and Calvert (excellent, but just don't need it homeschooling 2 instead of 4 and with those two being elementary age rather than...

Re: How to prepare myself for homeschooling my children?

Relax and don't worry about it. Playing with you kids when they are little is the most important thing. Don't worry about hurrying into academics. They will learn way more just by playing with...

Re: non-Gifted older siblings?

Focus on what the older one is good at. Cameron's gifted (in the genius range even with "divergent" lol results bringing his IQ down), but the orthographic processing disorder masks a lot. He's 12...

Re: Your opinion, please?

Re: Friday 5

No, just getting over this tummy bug.
Some people had pizza. Those of us with hurting stomachs had chicken noodle soup.

Re: What's on your mind Wednesday

IME techs tend to be WAY more cautious and negative than OBs. Hopefully that is the case for you!

Three of my kids (and me, too) are better. Fritz is still home with me today. Poor little guy...

Re: What's on your mind Wednesday

I'm mostly glad no one has thrown up since the middle of the night. The boys are all home from school. I like having them home. Ani is at school. She insisted on going even though she threw up...

Re: Relief Society Session

I could watch it on the Roku, but the church (Stake Center) is 2/10 of a mile away and, well, dinner (baked potato bar). We watch the regular sessions on the Roku. Jamie (and Cameron! Cameron will...

Re: Fun Friday.

They took 4 wards and made 5 out of them. We had teeny tiny boundaries (for outside UT) and now we have teenier boundaries. At the thinnest point our ward is less than 1/2 mile wide (we live in...

Re: Calling?

We did indeed end up with 5 wards made from 4 and I'm in the new ward so my calling-less-ness will likely come to an end very very soon. And, of course, Jamie is no long EQ secretary.
