one can stay for $35 per night [at least that was the price in the catalog I browsed]; children under 18 free, PCC students stay free when sharing a room with their parents.

I found a brochure about FAFSA. I went to www.pin.ed.gov. It's not clear to me if we fill out our students' info or the parent's info. Anyone know?

The FAFSA is about how much aid your family might get for college. More info at www.fafsa.ed.gov

If no one knows, I'll call 1 800 4 FED AID Monday.

If you go to this site and enter your zip code, it will tell you, say, for twenty miles around you all the volunteer positions available -- ours ranged from "mural painters wanted" to "Civil Air Patrol observers needed" to "teach someone English". It looks interesting:

When one of our boys wanted to be a chef, we used to attend chef shows yearly. Several of the chefs he interviewed said that this program at The Balsams (a grand hotel in NH) is the premiere culinary apprenticeship program in the country...and is said to be better than going to cooking school, for what it's worth.

I wondered if any of you have used "Learning Language Arts through literature" for highschool? Have you used the American and British literature from learning language arts through literature?? Did you like it?

Also, regarding writing, have any of you used the IEW course? Did you teach it in your home with the "teaching writing structure and style?? Was it very difficult to teach??

Thanks for your help..

I met a nice lady a few days ago, whose son is also in highschool. He is taking a class all year long on SAT prep.

I hadn't thought of this. Have any of you, who have highschoolers, done this before they need to take SAT? If so, did it help?

Just wondering if it's something I need to start thinking about in connection with college.

Has anyone used Weaver for high school? I was thinking of starting it next year when my kids will be in 3rd & 8th grades, but, I have never seen their high school supplements. I like the samples that I've seen of the curriculum, but if I would have to add a lot for high school, it might not be worth it.

I'm looking ahead to next year when my children will be 3rd & 8th grades. I think we would all enjoy switching to a Unit Study type curriculum, but I'd like to find something that will work with both children & that we can continue to use as my daughter starts high school.

I know Weaver has a high school supplement, but I've never seen how it's laid out. Any other suggestions?

We've never really done any modern history (post Civil War -now) and I'd like to do that 2nd semester before official high school next year. I am about to give up. I was on Lamplighter (?) website today and just saw their book list and thought that perhaps he could even just read some good books that covered this time period. I would like some discussion questions or something for when he is done to guide him. He reads well and understands what he reads well, but he did tell me a few months ago that he HATES reading books that are fiction. He will do it without complaining, but he hates them.

Hey, as you may be able to tell I'm researching grants and scholarships.

Just as a clue to anyone else who might be interested, there is a scholarship from Junior Achievement at, I think, www.ja.org

It requires that the student have participated in an afterschool program or JA Economics, and gives a scope and sequence somewhere on the site. Then they can submit an application for a fairly good-sized scholarship.

There's only one JA in NH and I had never heard of it, and our senior is maxed out with AP classes, but it might help someone else somewhere plan their economics requirement <g>

Vision Forum has their DVD set on sale right now for 1/2 price, and I was wondering if I used this could I count it as a high school level American Government class? Especially if I got the books along with it and assigned papers to my son? Consider also that this fall, we may well get some practical lessons in election campagning if our dear friend chooses to run for U.S. House of Representatives. (Our friend has been asked to pray about running for Rep. Jim Kolbe's seat. He's being actively courted from the White House down as a viable candidate. He's already the President of the State Senate, so this is a huge honor, but a very scary one!)

Any insights in how to do this? <or maybe it's an oxymoron to "develop self-motivation" ;-)>

Our oldest, who is in public school, is a typical first born and is very self-motivated.

Our next one, who is homeschooling, does work cheerfully. However, he has to constantly be nudged. I know that basketball is his motivation for grades. I'm wondering if just keeping on keeping on is the right thing to do....or if anyone has any other insights.

Dh has decided that he has to be "caught up" and stay caught up to try out for baseball. To do that, we'll have to follow through. It won't be pretty if it happens, but I think it's likely that it would never happen again. He has plenty of time to finish the small amount of remaining work and if he is faithful to the task at hand, he can easily stay caught up.

My 17 yo homeschooled daughter has been accepted for fall 06 at Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA. For some reason, the admissions office will give a $1000.00 scholarship, if she gives them the name, address and phone number of a Liberty graduate. They call this an alumnus scholarship, perhaps they send that person a card of something. Anyway, is there anyone who graduated from Liberty who would be willing to let her use their info? thanks

up our son's alley - we were talking about it - his first thought was about all of the times we are at the parks and they have the displays and information about "millions of years ago." How would he balance that? I know there are more types of jobs for the Park Service, but ds was thinking about that question.

Have they done apprenticeships, travelled, missions trip, family business, started working, started a business...or what else, if they didn't go directly to college after homeschooling?

One boy we know started apprenticing in high school to a maker of fine furniture. He never did go on to school; he loves what he does. He's married with kids now and is a juried member of the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen (at least the last time I talked to his mom <g>)
