Is Anyone REALLY Turned On by This??

Maybe don't answer that.

This Miley Cyrus person, of course I have to hear all about her despite not watching halftime at the football game, MTV awards, and so on.  She looks gross.  Most of the girls at the trailer park are way classier so I don't get why anyone is watching her.  I gather she is a musician of some sort (?).

Apparently "twerking" is the new thing and thankfully, it's not something that ladies will be able to do in the nursing home all too terribly well without throwing out their backs.  It is slightly better fashion than the "look at my underwear because I have my $200 jeans around my ankles" look, but that is not saying much.

  1. I don't always twerk, but when I do, I make sure it's upside down, against an incoming door that is closed with plenty of candles. Oh, and pigtails. Twerking is just silly if you don't have your hair in pigtails.

    1. It's like she's going for the romantic/ club music/ dressing like a 1980's exercise video gone wrong sort of a feel to this video. You NEED the pigtails.

  2. I don't get which part is the "twerking". Is it the dancing at home to music of your choice? Because that's gone on since radio was invented. Is it the "dancing" upside down against the door? Also done in private so who cares. it was unfortunate that someone chose to enter and toss her into the candle though.

    1. River, the "twerking" part is the butt jiggling. It's not so private when you get over a million views on youtube, however. :)

  3. Did you see that this was actually a stunt video by Jimmy Kimmel for late night tv? lol

  4. I just came from a Zumba class. A couple of the girls thought it was a twerking class. From my view in the back of the room, I spent too much time laughing to get in a good workout.

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!
