    Boy, I don't see a PM message button anywhere when I click on the picture. Maybe I am doing something wrong???

      Hi Melissa! Absolutely welcome back, and what a fun shout out this morning! I think it sounds like you guys have been doing great - picking the tools that are right for your family every year and every “season.” I would not worry about your “big picture” at all! Everyone’s is going to look different from each other. I think the only way we would have all been able to check the same boxes were if we were lucky enough to all live in Louisville and have our kids go to the exact same school!

      But homeschooling....Geesh. There’s so much that goes into life that affects our choices. I don’t think a week goes by that I don’t have to deal with some sort of self-doubt about how things are going, you know? I think it gets harder and harder as you go along - not easier - because these bigger kids seem to need so much more than just being at home with mom. We have not fluctuated in our school choices since finding MP but a big part of that is that we have had so much change and upheaval in our regular lives. It became comforting and helpful for all of us to have school be consistent and predictable. But I do still deal with a lot of questions, doubt, and fear about how things are going, and my biggest source of help is prayer. Honestly. Not that I worry about the quality of their education. It’s everything else that goes along with homeschooling that I did not expect in the early years.

      So this forum is so important for me in that too - just knowing that there are a lot of other moms in my same shoes of feeling like a lone wolf whose pack is scattered all throughout the country. I am so grateful you are back, and that both you and Tahara are giving us all the reminder that there’s no entrance test to participating on the forum. You could be using just the read aloud set, and we would welcome what you have to bring to our conversations! Some of the best threads have been about discussing reasons for how we do things, comparing things to understand them better, or even off-topic meanderings. It may seem through cyberspace that I do not waver or falter, but that’s because thankfully my personal experiences are usually locked up in my own head or hashed out in talks with my dh. But never, ever think that there is smooth, calm waters occurring over in this neck of the woods either! Life is full of challenges for everybody - me and Jessica included!

      hugs and prayers to all!
      AMDG,

        Melisa,
        I tried to send you a message, but you haven’t elected to receive them. I have to leave for the airport soon to pick up my sister so I will have to look later for where to turn that on. They changed the system not too long ago.

          Dorinda,

          I checked my profile and it says that I have enabled the private message option. I'm not sure what else to do. I will try to contact someone at the Forum later today and see what I am doing wrong.

            Good afternoon Melisa,

            Welcome back to the forum! I've checked your settings, and you should be able to receive private messages, as well as to send them to anyone else who's enabled them. When you click on the person's picture, the "private message" button will be on the next screen to the right of the photo (or, to quote Tahara, "lack thereof"). Here's a screenshot to help:

            If you still have trouble messaging, or you need any other assistance with the forum, you are welcome to call our office (1-877-862-1097) and ask for me. I'd be happy to help!

              Michael - I don't know if this matters, but I tried to send a PM to Melisa Burke and was given the message that this user does not have private messaging enabled. However, there is a "MelisaBurke" (no space) that IS allowed to get PMs. That option showed up in a dropdown just below "Melisa Burke" (with a space).

              It appears that there are either two ladies who spell their names with only one 's' and have the same last name or, perhaps, Melisa has 2 accounts? At any rate, I sent my PM to "Melisa [no space] Burke". I may have just PM'd the wrong person.

                How odd! I've manually disabled and then re-enabled private messaging for Melisa Burke, which is a separate account from MelisaBurke, though Melisa-With-a-Space mentioned that she had an old account here ...

                  I am so sorry for all of the confusion. I set up a new account yesterday because I couldn’t find my old account and my email address had changed. I think that I confused matters. I probably should have just called and figured out how to get into my old account. Thank you for your patience and assistance.

                    No problem, Melisa! You're welcome to still give us a call; we might be able to merge the accounts, and we can at least update emails and passwords for you.
