Responding to the OP about ways to get together with large families: "As I asked on our previous thread, I was wondering if any of you have ideas on how to get together IRL with other Catholic families who have lots of children.  There are 3 other Catholic families that we're trying to get to know better, but it's difficult to find a place to share a meal with 8 adults and 14 children.  One family has a big yard and promises to invite everybody over for a barbecue when...
My 11 year old is trying to master grammar conventions. The videos on BrainPop look like they might be pretty good on the subject, but I'd like to give it a trial before handing over $100 for a year's subscription.    Does anyone know how long the trial is? I can find that info on the site or through Mr. Google.   Thanks!

I'm teaching homeschool civics classes these days. The classes have been mostly middle school aged kids. I have a request to teach a high school class next Fall.   My older one isn't high school aged yet, so I haven't filled myself in on transcripts much.   For folks with high schoolers who take outside classes, what is useful to you from the teacher in putting together a transcript?   Thanks!
That looks a little bit lower level than I need....I really appreciate your suggestion.
I'll be including the 7 year old in our activities, too, but something in the middle school-ish area would be best.    I'm hoping for intro to plant classification, reproduction, cellular structures, photosynthesis and transpiration (without two much in depth chemistry), ideally with lab/hands-on activities and a list of reading books that complement the materials.   Has anyone run across such a selection?   Thanks!
I started college at 17 and lived in the dorm. I wonder if it's time to re-think how you are approaching your near-adult child.   Congrats to her on the baby and to you on your impending grandmotherhood.   I can't imagine getting through this without a good family counselor, especially with the move in September.   She must be overwhelmed - feeling happy about the baby and boyfriend and upset and scared at the same time.   Hopefully a counselor can help...
Only have a second....OP....I was thinking this article might encourage your ds. http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/creative-synthesis/201112/be-your-best-suck-you-must
