Where can I get this from? I looked on Amazon and don't see any there. Also any ideas how to tightly att...

Re: Bored with Reb and the Redcoats

We all loved it and when I say we, one is my ds. I'd say it is a personal thing as one of the previous posters was naming books they loved like Florence Nightingale and War Horse and personally those are ones we liked the least. We felt like Florence was repetitive, she is an angel, and War Horse th...

Re: Quick Question about pacing for English for dd

Lynn, I totally haven't decided but when I talked to Julie and Mike, they both were saying that it is nice to be able to do the 4 yrs of high school over 5 years. Right now dd will graduate at 17 (she doesn't have a b-day til July) and if we didn't do it over 5 years she would be 16 and I definitely...

Quick Question about pacing for English for dd

My dd just turned 12 and is in 7th grade doing Missions to Modern Marvels. I am wondering if I should have her do all of English 6 like the manual suggests or just half of English 6 since she is just in 7th grade....not sure what to do. Thanks for any help.
