Re: OT: Prayers please!

Dear Tamara, WOW! Your plate is so full of so many different things. First of all, I am lifting you up to the Father in Heaven who sustains us through those valley moments. I loved Jessi's scripture from Psalm 139. May He walk before you, behind you and place His hand of blessing on you during this ...

Re: Week In Review 4-10-09

Hi Sweet Girls, It has been busy around here and I am behind posting my HOD adventures. I only have two pictures this week. It was of the Indian Blanket the boys made last week. :D http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f26/MaryArnold/APRILWIR/DSC01269.jpg http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f26/MaryArnold...

Girls,

Those of you who are doing more than one core, I LOVE how you do separate posts. Kathleen, your week looked wonderful and I like how you planned out working ahead so you can be done by May!

Re: Advice on possible choices

Welcome Back! It sounds like you are asking some really good questions. Everyone has jumped in and given you some good points to pray about. I think you're on the right track and can't wait to see how the Lord leads you!

That's IT! I couldn't figure out the difference I had noticed. I do love to add missionary biographies, but character is life changing;-)

Re: Video of boys doing HOD!

Carrie- The boys did want to make it for daddy too!

Jen- I Agree, I think they DESERVED ice cream :lol:

Kathleen- I am terrible at video taping. I scrapbook, but it's not the same thing. With my oldest being 17 now, it's the one thing I regret. I wish I had taped more often :cry:

Re: Combine/Separate Verdict is in!

But in the end, we decided to go with the decision that I felt would be easiest for me to execute well, and that is to combine in BIGGER, making some adjustments to the way I run things, to give them a bit more independence and ownership where possible. Oh Patience, I think this sounds like a GREAT...

Re: MFW or HOD???

I started off with MFW and also made the switch. God calls each of our families differently. For our home, I found HOD easier to implement and it just clicked with my teaching style. I like the way it's laid out in the instructor's guide. I feel like each box is a small bite and at the end of each d...

Video of boys doing HOD!

We had to split the last unit into two weeks so we just made the ice cream today. I thought I'd share our video:

Re: Potential new user with a bunch of questions :-)

Hi Libby, I just wanted to jump in and welcome you! I understand exactly where you are coming from. We began using HOD back in January of 2008 and had been HS'ing for 10 1/2 years at that time. I came in with things already working, but really wanted to make HOD work. I absolutely LOVE HOD! I think ...

Re: Week In Review 3-12-09

Oh how I am loving all of your WIR's! Julie, I like how you did the separate post for each manuel. That makes it easier for me to see the big picture. You do such a good job with your pictures and story telling. Moedertje, we are on the exact same week! Except now I'm behind. My oldest son had to em...

Re: OT update on dh He is OK

Praise The Lord! Syncope can be VERY scary. I'm so glad you know what it is and they are doing further testing, but it sounds like something your family can definitely work through..., PRAISE HIM!
