My child is more prone to cause worldwide economic collapse than your darker toddler. Yellow-haired, blue-eyed people are just NATURALLY more evil than people of all the other races. Already we see evidence of this in that he wants another horsey-ride at Wal-Mart. He wants more cookie. He takes toys from his sister. He even has temper tantrums. Of course, black children would never do that. They are always NATURALLY good. All you people who think that every child is a little different, but that they all have the "human condition" in common, must be completely nuts. Sigh.


  1. I am nuts. And your child is so cute!

  2. I am white, but I have brown eyes so guess I'm off the hook for the economy going bad and stuff.

    And your little one looks like a boy doll!

  3. LOL Thanks, Jungle Mom!

    Catherine, I have dark brown eyes and hair, so I'm not sure how this happened. I must have some recessive genes that are not showing through. That means that everything is all my fault, too, only *secretly.*

    I think Woodjie looking like a boy doll is a survival mechanism! :]

  4. I think it is a young boy thing. My 3-year-old, black skinned, brown-eyed bundle of energy is only not evil when he is sleeping. He is sleeping right now! Amen!!!

  5. Here's praying both our sons turn into vibrant, wonderful men of God!

    For now, we need to work diligently to mold their little characters. Well, except when they're sleeping. :]

  6. My kids are more evil than your kids. My kids have already turned to the dark side of the Force.

  7. Thanks, Pam!

    LOL, DF, not Disney baby. He would never do that. (Ooo, *smooch* he's so cute!!)

  8. Hey! I represent that remark! (I love saying that to my kids.) I could easily be bewitched by those eyes. Yep.

  9. OOoo, love your siggy pic, Sue!

    Woodjie's eyes are even bluer in person. He would use all his powers to get cookies and stuff, sure he would.

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!
