The Man With the Boots.

D made bootstraps and a bracelet that match. Do you like them? His favourite shop is the Standard Rivet Company. I've edited it so that there is no confusion that we're looking at the boots ok? LOL


  1. Pleeease comment! D is driving me nuts looking for comments *already*!

  2. OK, I don't live rivets, but the man? VERY HUNKY!!!!

  3. And what a 'poser'... but done ever so well!

  4. Oh baby, you rock it!!!! (Is that what he wanted to hear?!) :)

  5. What Claire said. Because I nrver know what to say in these circumstances.

  6. I see that my wife is being funny again. Yes, I did ask her to put on a picture of my new boot straps. But I was not driving her crazy for comments "already" ... and the picture was not really as advertised ... as the picture should have been focusing on the boot straps not me. When she was loading the picture I thought that was the best picture of them ... it was not.

    So although every man wants his ego stroked ... be at ease everyone ... and you do not have to comment how sexy I am! Although if you do ... I will not stop you.

  7. Well, yeah, I forgot to mention he was looking for comments about his leatherworking, not his hunkiness LOL!! But I was on a "sexxy" theme with the kitchen and couldn't resist.

    Nobody commented on how hot the kitchen was, though...

    Well, yet.

  8. I am super happy this man wasn't in that kitchen. So much easier to look at than the kitchen/bathroom pics.

    I like the boot straps though!

  9. Wait until I tell Dearest & that he can thank his stars I never thought of doing that to him! lol.

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…
