Fake Facebook Account Stops Family Slaughter

Do you snoop on your kids' facebook accounts and find out all sorts of dirt?

I am a mean, rotten Mom and I have the password to each of my children's accounts.  No password, no computer time and no account.  Since I never signed a school technology agreement, and we have no internet-connected cell phones?  I'm your source for internetz around here.

Here's a family that was probably in crisis for a while, but they don't tell the whole story in the news.  Aunt is taking care of niece, and niece keeps inviting strange men she meets on facebook over to the house (!!?).  The aunt is tired of the antics and being blocked on the niece's account and makes up a man's profile.

Niece wants to have lots of sex with this fictional guy... after he kills the entire family and the little dog, too.  Oh.  And pays her cell phone.  (That's what gentlemen do.)  She had the whole plan laid out for him and everything. 

Yep.  The 19-year-old is in jail.  I just wonder how many drugs it takes before stuff like this makes sense.


  1. That is just awful and I'm kind of glad the aunt snooped and discovered the plot.
    It's also very sad.

  2. When they decide they are grown, you have to let them go and pay their own bills. I've tried finishing the job some one else messed up... but after a certain age, it is nearly impossible to undo the dysfunction.

    1. I have a pretty "functional" house here, and it's hard living with adults. And I don't even deal with the weird company and murder wish thing. (WOW...)

  3. I read that article this week too. It is quite sad. I hope she figures out at some point what a stupid thing it is she did and that somehow she is able to turn her life around. I'm not sure if I would have lived through all of my 19 year old dumb decisions if my Mom hadn't been praying for me.

    1. This girl SOUNDS like she had a rough life before that, although we just can't tell from the article. I don't wonder if after the drugs clear out of her system that she might learn a thing or two.

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!
