Finally, Some Answers.


Do you wonder about the Pope, Barack Obama, the end of the world and economic collapse? From the picture, it looks like they're all interconnected. OH! And global warming? That, too. You can find out all the answers to these questions if you attend the seminar advertised on this flyer. And buy the speaker's books. And go to the speaker's church. But hey, secret knowledge doesn't come cheap, ok? I think you get lunch with the deal, too, but it comes in a paper sack with some bottled water.

  3. I'm impressed by how the "end of the world" folks still manage a lot of street cred. Did you see the National Geographic documentary on Wayne Bent/Michael Travesser? I think it was called "Inside a Cult." The leader got everyone all whipped up in a frenzy about the end of the world (Oct 31 2006, I think) and yet still held on to everyone when nothing happened.

    I really must learn their secrets! I'm sure it would come in very handy arguing in front of a jury or something.

  4. Thanks, Kim, it was great!

    Tammy, I'm thinking some of these "answers" would be fun to listen to for about five minutes LOL!

    Allison, it would work very well for you, too, if you got to hand-pick the most gullible jury in the world. You know, 12 people and some alternates who really *need* your affirmation once in a while. They'll believe anything you say in exchange.

    I don't know that the judge or opposing attorney would be too kewl with it, though. :]

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…

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!

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…
