Re: Tips/Schedule for PHFHG, BLHFHG, and LHTH...??

Hello! I have asked a similar question and had some great replies, so I know others will have good ideas. Maybe you can search my posts too, to find the question. I don't know how to post links that work... :cry: I will be running Bigger (9yo), Beyond-minus history and science since she did it last ...

Re: Advice on schooling with my toddler...

You've gotten some good advice! I remember asking a similar question when my youngest was at 2 years old. I think the post is called "For the love of a 2 year old". I don't know how to link posts or I would. I was given lots of good advice. I replaced naptimes with crib times so that the kiddo could...

Re: uncombining update and new baby advice needed

Thank you, Melissa! I appreciate the advice and encouragement. I keep re-reading through this thread to glean from everyone (and I'm sure I will do it again when I get stuck or overwhelmed)! I appreciate the reality check that we may not move through as quickly as my ideal. We also had grand summer ...

Re: uncombining update and new baby advice needed

Thank you, momof3kids for the encouragement! And thank you bethelmommy and MomtoJGJE for the practical advice! I will be writing down that half-speed schedule for Bigger and I like the idea of using post-it notes to keep track of our boxes. I am glad for the general encouragement about taking it eas...

Re: uncombining update and new baby advice needed

Thank you for the links, TrueGRIT! I copied down the info into my notebook. I am going to have to rethink my current schedule to see how I can balance the 2.5-3 hours better for my son throughout the day as well as incorporate the other two kiddos...I need to search for " forums on multiple guides s...

Re: uncombining update and new baby advice needed

Thank you ladies! I appreciate all the great advice! I can imagine nursing and naps will become vital school time! I like the idea of memorizing in the tub! How would you recommend going "half-speed"or what is a reasonable pace after we pick school back up a month or so after the baby is born? I can...

Re: Help! How to use DITHOR student guide

I wanted to add about your question about the Biography - Day 6 Question and Answer Sheet. I pulled out my workbook and looked and it says that the students will write their questions on day 6 and fill in the answers on day 10. So even if you start a new book on day 6, they won't have to answer thei...

Re: When to start your school year when doin a 4 day school

I got the idea from Julie to school LHFHG, and Beyond with 4 day school days to spread the two guides over three years. That is what I will do with the next guy coming up through the ranks.

Re: DD Wants Public School

Just had another thought, if she suffers from viewing ps like "High School Musical", it might help her to visit a ps one day. I was a missionary kid in Japan with movies as my only reference for what ps was like, so I also had a glamorized idea. When my parents came back to the States for furlough, ...

Re: DD Wants Public School

You have gotten some great responses! I don't have much to add except to definitely keep the communication lines open with her. If she is using the line, "But God led me to this...", she is obviously pretty serious, whether she is using the "God line" sincerely or to make her desire seem more mature...
