Oh, They Shouldn't Print That!

Oh, no! Obama and his friends are upset about cartoons! Who would have EVER THOUGHT that running for public office would get you lampooned in a cartoon in a way you don't like!?? Waaah! I'd have to say that Obama must not be a practicing Muslim because while he's getting *upset* about the cartoon, he hasn't quite beheaded anyone about it yet.

(OK, that wasn't fair, because there are nuts in every bunch. But read the news and understand that part of me wants to just say inflammatory stuff like that because I CAN and feel that right may be taken away soon... don't get me started on Europe, eroding ideas of human rights and acceptance of Christians... this would be the article that has no end, yes, it goes on and on, my friend... )
*
Does Obama REALLY want to dispel the "Muslim" myth? I'll bet you he DOESN'T, because the idea of being a Muslim plays really well to the liberals who think they're somehow an oppressed people group. I don't buy that he's a Christian, though, but he could become one. I know he CALLS himself a "Christian," but you know, I could call myself "thin" all I want, too.

I don't really know about Cindy McCain. I really haven't seen anything in-depth about her other than the fact that she dresses nicely and has a lot of money. Big whoop. But Michelle Obama... you can't say that fist thing doesn't mean something sinister. I have NEVER NEVER NEVER seen anyone do that sort of greeting in seriousness. I think it's a Black Power thing and I'm very suspicious of this woman who isn't proud of America blah blah blah. And what kind of submissive Christian wife goes off and speaks FOR her husband in interviews and says that he'll basically force you to confront your attitudes and work hard?
*
Um, no, he won't. See, as a Christian, I respect the power and authority in the presidency. But as an American, watch me get all independent and revolutionary-minded on you and subvert the authority you weren't meant to have in the first place.

May God (that's Jesus!) bless you.

  1. Great post! I got quite the chuckle out of that cartoon.

    I also do not think he is a Christian

  2. Jesus was a liberal. Ooo, ouch! That had to hurt. If you don't think so, then you don't know Him very well--either that, or you've been listening to Pat Robertson too long.

  3. Well, anonymous from CONNECTICUT, I'm sure Jesus was a liberal in many ways. In the classic sense of the word. How does that "hurt?"

    I'm also not getting where Pat Robertson comes into the equation, and where you think you get off telling me how well I know Jesus. I can take a "good guess" at Obama in my blog post, but I don't think that's quite the same as hopping to someone's blog and being nasty to them without even giving the courtesy of leaving a username or the location of YOUR blog so that I might visit you as well.

    You may want to find another blog to troll, or perhaps learn to be polite and discuss the issues at hand in my posts. I'm sure I have several readers from other locations who can respectfully disagree with my opinions.

    Have a nice day.

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!
