Another Reason to Vote For Obama in November

By all means, teach your children morals. If you're not a Christian and don't believe sex outside marriage is wrong, I think we can agree anyway that having a baby at a young age is a tough row to hoe. I certainly have been trying to instill this idea into Patrick and G's minds. (Men have babies, too, you know.) But if you make a "mistake," children are still a blessing. Maybe you are too young to parent and might consider allowing the child to be adopted. Maybe a lot of things. But children are still a blessing. Obama's ideas are not.

  1. What DOES he want them punished with>? Or is everything a mistake and therefore doesn't require discilpline of any sort.
    I see this leading to parental rights disappearing very soon. I have no doubt he would side with the UN on the rights of the child.
    YIKES!
    I pray the Lord returns very soon.

  2. What an awful poster! And what a twisted up way of thinking, a baby is "punishment"!!!!????

    I found you via "The Autism Express" blog. I like coming across others with autistic children who homeschool. I'll be back (have to run and finish teaching my 9 year old and get the kids out in some wading pools waiting in the back yard!).

    How cool that you have some older siblings for your younger children to pal around with! I think big families are one of the best things autistic children, and it's especially great if they have both older and younger siblings!

  3. As a teen parent, I feel that it is a big hardship at first. However sometimes or most of the time, things can turn around. We have a beautiful 10 year old girl now and I wouldn't change it for the world. I married her daddy and we had two more kids together.

    I would think that Mr. Obama would consider the fact that his children aren't following the Laws of God. We teach our children that although we made these mistakes, we struggle financially because we were young and didn't understand the consequences of our actions at the time. We are now paying for those actions. So they understand to abstain. There is so much more I could say but I won't say it here because it would probably be mumbo jumbo stuff.

  4. My goodness! That is a terrible poster for sure. Children are such blessings and for Obama to say that they are a punishment?! That breaks my heart.

    I agree with your post. When it comes down to it, it is about responsibility. They want to have sex outside marriage and live as they wish with no consequences. Even if it means murdering a human being in the process. Morals and responsibility definitely need to be instilled in a child from an early age.

    By the way, I am planning on homeschooling my boys as well! :)

Reading Curriculum: ABeka Book and BJU Press

Did you know that in the state of Missouri, homeschoolers must teach reading as a separate subject?  I don't know how anyone could homeschool well without teaching their child to read... but OK. 

I got many of my ABeka books used and collected them over time.  I'm glad I came across these readers early in my homeschooling years.  It teaches children to read step-by-step.  I don't think I've seen a more effective reading program for the elementary years.  The children love the stories, and what I appreciate about them is that there is a rich and varied language even in simple-to-read books in this series. 

My set is pretty old, and some are even from the 1960's and no longer listed in the reading series.  I think if I had to do things over again somehow, I think I'd just spend on a curriculum set and be done with it.  That's the thing, though, with homeschooling.  By the time you figure out what the perfect curriculum is for you, your children have graduate…

Homeschooling is NOT So Hard.

I wish I'd have known this starting out. I wish I'd have known that it's actually LESS work to just homeschool your child, than to be an "involved parent" at school.

We've enjoyed elementary school with our older boys. *Most* of the teachers were actually pretty competent and caring (the others, I save for another blog post, another day...). We had the children involved in extra activities like the Spanish Club or Service Club, or choir, and they got a fair bit out of the experience.

But it's a LOT of work.

You get about a ton of worksheets that must be done by a certain time. Usually on a day when you're sick or have no time. You get the phone calls about this or that, and about a zillion sheets per day that sometimes contain important news, so you MUST go through them daily. The schools also *love* to throw in half days, teacher in-service days and early dismissals. Not so bad, unless you have children at more than one school and the schedu…

Holiday Gifts for the Homeschool Teacher!

Merrymaking hint:  leave this post up on your phone/ computer for your family to "accidentally" find!  Let the magic begin!

 All teachers love a little appreciation every now and then, including homeschoolers.   I don't know about you, though, but I don't want any apple crap.  So first rule:  no apple crap! 

Otherwise I'm pretty open.  I love getting gifts, even if it's just something small or simple.  One thing I love is when my children want to help out and make lunch or clean up or put their laundry away.  Or just behave themselves and get their math done.  This is a really big thing when you think about it.  

And from the adults in my life, the gift of coffee always shows love - or rather, someone not wanting an "I need coffee" emergency in the middle of winter after a big snowstorm.  Somehow, I always have a lot of coffee in my pantry during the winter months.  (Guess why.) Thanks, D!
