Re: Question about Boy Have I Got Problems!

My DS 13 & 9 did their studies alone and we would discuss them during the day. They had already done one of these studies before so they were familiar with them.

Re: Trials - PURE JOY

Thank you so much Marie! I have been struggling with joy for the last few weeks. We are missionaries in Senegal and the country has been experiencing terrible power outages. The worst in decades in fact! I wanted to wallow in my frustration at not having the power to use my computer as I needed, and...

Re: Just curious about some things...

I'm just curious about how some of you have school in your home, and thought it would be interesting to share. Like, do you have your children recite The Pledge of Allegiance? Why or why not (if you don't mind sharing)? We need to do that more often. My youngest hasn't lived in the US much so he is ...

Re: Exploration to 1850 -- Share Your Experiences

We truly enjoyed this year! It was challenging enough for DS13 but also on a good level for DS9. We had many great discussions on the beginning of the US & how it is faring now. History was great! Art- DS9 had some difficulty but I think DS13 is finding that he is artistic. I pray that he will conti...

Thank you!

Hello All! I just was praying to God and thanking Him for MFW and wanted to let all of you know as well! Last year, we began RTR and lived in Ghana, West Africa. Our mission moved us to Senegal, West Africa and now we are studying Ex1850. Our family is having the best time memorizing the book of Jam...

Re: Singapore Math w/Home Instructor's Guide???

I have always used the HIG. It is a quicker way to check Ds' work and it also give more ideas for extra practice.
We also were given the Vroot&Vroom CD. We use it occassionally. Don't know how effective it is.
I think the HIG is very helpful.

We served in Senegal, W Africa, for two years and then went to Quebec for one year of language study. We have been in Ghana for just two weeks.

Many blessings!

Re: Using MFW in Africa

Posted: Sun Jun 29, 2008 2:31 pm I am so glad to read of others who are on the mission field. Sometimes, I feel my family is the only one in our situation. The idea about international school books is great. I think there may be one in Kumasi. It is a smaller city so I am still figuring out how to ...
