I'm Converting to Islam.

"Allah" has personally signed four cuts of meat at a restaurant. See, the Jews *used* to have those Ten Commandments on stone tablets signed by Yaweh and what-not, but now they're out of favour and so yesterday. Same with the Catholics and their tired old "Virgin Mary in a tortilla" routine that occasionally makes the evening news. Now Islam is the hep-happenin' thang because their god is doin' the miracles now! From the article:

"When the writings were discovered there were some Islamic scholars who come and eat here and they all commented that it was a sign to show that Islam is the only true religion for mankind," he said. Yes! It has convinced me. You know, I wasn't going to believe before, but now that there are a couple ridges in a piece of meat that YOU say spell out "Allah" in Arabic, I know that Allah is the only one and true god and I will convert immediately. Even though I can't read Arabic, I just *know* that Allah was putting that message on a steak for me.

The restaurant has kept the pieces of meat for visitors to see. A special service for the community to bolster their faith. Till the meat rots, anyway. Thousands of people have already gone to the restaurant to see them since they were discovered last week. See folks? EVERY religion has its share of weirdos and people ready to cash in. People are the same all over the world. And what with this happening in Nigeria, the first thing I thought upon reading this story is, why hasn't the prince sent me my money yet??

  1. I always knew you would convert to Islam. And this piece of steak is as profound as reason as any. Guess you better start researching mail-order burka websites!

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!
