Re: To Finish CTC or Bump to Res to Ref

Thanks so much for popping back to share a bit more about your daughter. Deciding whether or not to do medication can be such a difficult choice. We have had that with our son Greyson too. I don't like to have him on Humira; but the alternative was continued ER visits and hospital stays with little...

Re: To Finish CTC or Bump to Res to Ref

I just realized I Ieft some answers out. It was stretching her in the area of time management and written narrations before we started her on medication. Now that she is on meds though, she is flying through the work. I suppose her mind has finally slowed down enough to allow her to fly. It was a ha...

Re: To Finish CTC or Bump to Res to Ref

First off, I think your daughter's written narration for CTC is great! :D You can feel really good about what she has written. Secondly, I am wondering how she is doing in CTC overall. Does she seem to be excelling? Is she being stretched in some areas in CTC? We usually tell moms that you want abo...

To Finish CTC or Bump to Res to Ref

Hi! I would love some advice from one of the experts. :D My oldest turned 12 in January. She did LHFHG for K, Beyond for 1st, then we took a break exploring all the things. We came back for about 10 units of Preparing at one point and got bit by the exploration bug yet again. Now, she is almost done...

Re: How are you all doing?

We are doing okay down here in the South. Everything is cancelled, restaurants can only serve through drive thru and take out, and many other things have now been closed. I think the outbreak is definitely worse than we know here. Testing just isn't very widespread yet. It is in our city though and ...

I only ya e two children, so I try to check each box as they complete it. If I’m in the middle of something, I simply get to it as soon as I can.

Re: Any resolutions for the new year?

This is a good thread! I’ve been thinking about this lately. For my 12-year old daughter, I want to work on my own patience, while still working on her diligence and persistence with work. We are really trying to work on time management with her. She is ADHD and could easily stare into space all da...

Re: What do you look forward to the most in HOD each day?

For my 12-year old in CTC: 1.) We sit down together while she does the watercolor paintings. I know it’s an independent box, but she really likes me sitting down with her through this. She is thoroughly enjoying this part of the day. I swear I can see her stress melt away. 2.) Storytime- The history...

Re: Staying Motivated As a Homeschool Mom

Oh my! I needed to read that, Carrie! So many people around us seem to be putting their children in school. On top of this, I’ve had so many health struggles that it can be so hard to push through. We know we are called to this though. We continually push forward, and even though some days are hard ...

Re: Check-in: What guides are you using?

Yes! For sure! I think she’ll love the books. I have a tendency to push my youngest, but I’m trying to resist that urge!
