- Gluten Free Mom
- I am mom to a 15 year old boy and identical twin 6 year old boys. I am the wife of a wonderful man. I have had celiac disease for 15 years. Those things define me in that order, everything else falls in line! I homeschool because the public school system was just letting my smart child slip through not learning a thing, on the honor roll no less. While I eat a completely gluten free diet I don't keep a gluten free household. No reason to make the kids suffer with me! I am writing a gluten free cookbook (slowly!) because I can't stand all the gluten free recipes out there that use five hundred flours, and I want to eat normal food like non-celiacs do. Just like I used to, I use one all purpose flour that ROCKS, The Gluten Free Pantry's All Purpose Flour. No, I do not get paid to say that ;) Every recipe on my blog can also be made with regular flour, use it just like I use my gf flour!

Confusion with Saxon Math
We are using Saxon 76 with Big Kid, and he is just breezing right through it. Who would have thought math would be our easiest subject at home!!! I'm starting to poke around for next year's curriculum, to see if I can find any deals before buying new. The saxon website is SO confusing about whether we go to Saxon 87 or Algebra 1/2! I asked on my local homeschooling network and a few moms said go with 87, and then just move to Algebra 1 for 8th grade. I guess I'll go that way, but man Saxon could you make it any more confusing??? Now I just have to get to the used curriculum store... what a drive and it's always trying with the twins there!
