Oh Marge, have lots of fun! By the time you get back, I should be home.

DH and I met friends for lunch today, same guy as last Wed. but his wife came along this time. She's nice, I haven't seen her in forever. I didn't ever really know her that well, either. Anyway, she's self-described pagan, and he's an atheist. We got along well.

Then we went to Goodwill. We had filled the trunk with Tall Kitchen Garbage bags, and when I mean filled, you should know that I'm a good packer. I had pushed four of the bags way to the back, then another row of bags, and then another. I think there were 14 bags in there. On top of that were 3 men's suits and 4 jackets. Then the back seat had another 8 bags. All clothes, well, some shoes too.

Then we dropped off 20 pairs of eyeglasses at LensCrafters, they take them for OneSight.

I got a couple boxes to send out on Friday, so was getting those ready today. Tomorrow I'm going to work on the jewelry and what I can manage to get home.

I think I mentioned DH got two pieces of luggage out of the attic for us to use, well actually there are 3, I'll decide based on how full they are.

My brother wants to come out to visit in CA if the Cards get to play Oakland in the World Series. That would be sweet. He's a big Cards fan.

Anyway, so much to see, so much planning, so much fun!
I loved the Little House books, too. I agree that the homestead would be a neat place to visit!

So would England.

Hey. My mom is one of those Saturday regulars (curl and style, yes; blue, NO way) so I take a little offense to that. After all the years she did those nasty Toni home perms and made do herself, she's definitely earned the right to her 9:00 a.m. appointments!

(Ha - I made a pun there without meaning to.)

I talked with our high school band teacher about it after the band boosters meeting this evening. She said that the competition organizers are still finalizing plans; apparently they're getting some late-minute dropouts and additions. But she knew what time our band is performing - I just don't remember if she said 4:15 or 4:30, but it was in that time frame.

She also said we'll be competing as a class AAA band because we had one too many band members to qualify as AA. Yay.

OMG I never realised just how much those suckers are new. It's a real eye opener! We'll get used when we take the leap. So we have time to look and decide what will work best for a long trip. We're nowhere near the 6 figure range! (although we did look and they were very shiny and new!)

We still deciding but are erring on the more cautious side and "fostering" him out. Already DH has had people at work volunteer to look after him. At the end of the day it's a very confined area and we can't take him for walks! And we'd hate for him to get out and meet a coyote or buffalo in Yellowstone.

Thanks for that suggestion. DH read the books so is thrilled we can go there. We're going to try and stay at military campsites as much as we can because they are so much cheaper! Zoo and Science centre passes get us into a lot of places free, we get the military National Parks Pass for free too so only have to pay camp fees at any we stay in those.

That sounds like fun. I love your stamp work. You almost have me tempted to start again!

Good question re internet. Have to look into it. I think a lot of the mil bases have internet but you made a good point.

Actually, I can turn my phone on to be a wireless hotspot. The kids have kindle fire and I'm sure by then DH will upgrade to one of the new ones with wireless.

I bet they were all thrilled to get so many donated items.

DH just remarked that he'd noticed no bookshelves in any of the RVs. 4+ TVs in a lot of them. We'll have to remedy that. I swear the cat walked across the keyboard one too many times and my "e" is sticking. Darn cat.

There were many, many places in the center of the country where we had no cell phone reception. Granted, it was a few years ago...

FWIW, it was hard being in the parks with a dog. Pets are allowed in the campground and parking areas, but not on the trails. Our car couldn't be ventilated adequately to leave a pet unattended while we all went somewhere, so someone (me) would stay and babysit the dog.

Mainly wondering what resources to share - there's tons online, but not particularly helpful if you don't have reliable access.

We mostly did "lessons" based on wherever we visited and whatever particularly interested the kids. I think curriculum for that could be as easy as finding age-appropriate history/geography books that involve aspects of the area you're visiting. Fiction works great for read-alouds (something to do while you drive); DS likes non-fiction for reading on his own.


Your current school would probably let you check out books - heck, they'd probably encourage you to stay enrolled (they only get $$$ for enrolled students) and give you some support. Your state may have virtual charter schools in which you can enroll to get advice and materials (my friend, for example, was able to borrow a microscope for her son's 10th grade biology class).


If you go totally text-based, I'd try to get grade-appropriate materials from England and enrich with history/geography/social studies for each area you visit. Have you seen the BBC Schools typing program? It's great! BBC - Schools - Dance Mat Typing - Home


It's hard to find formal curriculum that is non-religious in the US, though not impossible. Singapore Math seems to still get good reviews; Laurel Springs seems like an umbrella school that reviews well (haven't used the latter). Most people I know who are homeschooling tweens are pulling it together from multiple sources (often books like DK or Kingfisher histories, plus vast internet resources like Discovery Education Streaming), supplemented with field trips.


I would concentrate on earth sciences and biology (maybe make a nature book, with botanical samples from sites you visit) associated with the areas you visit, provide history/geography/social studies through real-life experiences and appropriate supplements, get to standard math levels for their first UK year back, and do language arts (journaling, formal essays, blog???) relating to your experience, concentrating on revising (with your editorial input) so as to improve grammar and structure.

Yes -- was comparing the xx kids to the 50 states. Obviously wasn't too clear!

Vail Digital Learning Program This is our own school district. You came up with some really useful ideas here. Maths is the one we'll need to sit and work on but the rest will be real-life experience. Doesn't seem so daunting the more we think about it. And we just realised we'll be able to take the telescope with us too.

Funniest thing just happened. DH was just getting in the shower when the cat carried something in and put in in front of him. No glasses on he bent to pick it up and it was squishy. Cat had brought him a large green caterpillar!! It was so funny. We have the front door open as we have a locked gate out there which means the cat can smell the outside but not get out. It obviously came in under the door. Cat was so proud of himself.

I haven't been to the BBC Schools site in a while either so I'd forgotten they have some Key Stage 2 and 3 stuff on there. Thanks Alyson.

But do they have to *look* legal age? We can ask for ID.

Well I'm glad you got it taken care of. I did use up my money for this year on crowns, too. I could still get a cleaning, but I'm not due now til January.
We have $50 deductible. I already dealt with that. And yes cleaning is covered. Maybe I'm misunderstanding. If I use all my $1000 before the year is up won't they NOT cover anything else? It would be OOP?

You've got it, V. Typically, cleanings are covered at 100%. Any work would require a $50 deductible, then will pay 80% of of the "negotiated rate", (which is a rate determined by the doctor and the insurance company) up to $1000 per year.

At least, that's the way I'm understanding your policy. Mine is similar, only a $2000 lifetime max and we have some orthodontics coverage as well.

Bbaby loves the Whistle song and keeps playing it on my phone. I put it on there cause its great for the early part of my run. I just don't want to keep hearing it over and over and over.

Met up with a friend this afternoon. I bought several American Girl outfits from her. I'm going to wash and press them and wrap them up really pretty for Bbaby for Christmas. She won't know and won't care that they're used! Score!

I miss my hubs. He was out of town for several days and has been working long days since he got back. Then, when he comes home, he eats dinne and puts the kids in bed. Then, out comes the laptop.
