Got this link from my uncle D. Watch this and see how many times the white team passes the ball. Then hit the comments button to see if you are right. Sorry I can't embed it, but it really is worth the extra click. Tell me how you did!!


  1. Did you see the gorilla in the middle of the video? I was so engrossed in counting the number of times the team passed the ball that I MISSED IT. And reviewing the video, it was so obvious.

  2. rofl I will be trying this on hubby and Monkey. Hubby has a very scientific mind so he usually gets things like this. Maybe I can finally stump him.

  3. What gorilla!? I counted the ball being passed by the white team about 14 times. Now I have to go back and watch it, I'm tired this morning.

  4. There he is!!! That is too funny! I didn't notice it at all the first time!

  5. Saw this a while ago and I loved it. So I blogged about it. [smile]


  6. can't load the video. Wha! I wanna see the gorilla!

  7. Hm.. You need to click the "play" button at the bottom and THEN the little video box comes up. Hopefully.

    The trick doesn't work now that you're expecting it. See if Liddy and Ditz notice. Tell them you want to see if they can count the number of times the ball is passed on the white team and ask them after if anything unusual was noticed LOL. Both Emperor and Elf did NOT see the gorilla. And it's SO obvious if you're not concentrating really hard on the ball!!

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!
