Re: Trouble with Bigger Hearts...

Thanks for these insightful posts ladies. I always thought lots of breaks in our day was a good thing for my boys, but based on your advice, maybe not :? This is why our days are so long! This week I will be implementing some of these tips! Thanks again girls!

Re: Trouble with Bigger Hearts...

No advice here Dorla because I am in the same boat. We finished Beyond last year and had a great year, but Bigger takes us from 10 am to 3 pm to finish. I have 3 other children to take care of and we just can't find a way to make it work. Like you, I have cut down to one side a day but it still does...

Re: Just wanted to announce...

Amy, I had her here, in Mexico. She has dual citizenship. She will have a Mexican passport and an American passport. And the medical care I received here was better (and MUCH cheaper!) than my previous 3 births in the states! I doubt I would have gotten my VBAC had I been in the states because she w...

How do you set up notebooks for Bigger?

Hi ladies,

I am just trying to figure out how many notebooks we need for Bigger? I know we need a science notebook with blank pages, but what else do I need? How do you/did you set up your system for Bigger so I can get a picture of what to do..thanks!

Re: Please pray..

Ladies I have GREAT news!!!!!!! We had the results faxed to our ob/gyn and he says that my numbers show that I had the virus YEARS ago and have immunity to it! (Most likely from my cousin) He said there is absolutely nothing to worry about and he sees no reason for an ultrasound unless we just want ...

Copywork really works!!

I know it might sound silly, but I never really gave much thought to the concepts my son was learning through copy-work. It has just been our handwriting portion of the day to copy the poems in Beyond. Well, today before school my son (6) was writing in a notebook for fun and when I peered over his ...

Re: Denominational Variation?

I think we are a hodgepodge which is good since we serve with an inter-denominational missions organization. I would say we lean towards being Baptists who believe the gifts of the spirit are for today. My husband came from Southern Baptist background and when I was saved at 21 I found my home in an...

Thanks Jessi for asking! :) We haven't had any confirmed cases in our state (Jalisco) as of yet, but that does not mean much. Our missions base leader and a couple of staff have traveled to Mexico City in the last couple of months but there are no signs of sickness yet. Our town however is full of p...

Re: Anyone use CLE Learn to Read w/ HOD?

We used it and really loved it. We did not start until first grade as we had used Explode The Code in K. The beginning was review, but it was good. My son finished it about a month ago and instead of using the CLE LA I decided to finish up his phonics instruction (only the things we had not covered ...
