*New* Holi-day.

"There's nothing wrong with God that a dose of reality won't cure," so maybe you'd like to celebrate Blasphemy Day with some friends? I'm thinking that you'll have plenty of time to do that in Hell if you don't repent purdy soon. Just using a little freedom of speech there, friend. While I still can.

I think it coincides with "National Be Offensive For Fun Day" as well as "People Who Are Too Chicken To Pull This Crap in Saudi Arabia Because Christians Are Really Pretty Tolerant But We Don't Want to Admit it Because it Makes Us Look Big And Bad to Fight the 'Power' Day."

It's a pretty busy day, I think.

  1. Unbelievable...

    Really? And, how has he been punished by the dominant culture? A culture whose education, art and music is blatantly humanist and non-Christian?

    Every example this article gave supporting the need to stand of up religious tolerance came from outside the US. [He is most distressed by the U.N. general Assembly considering next month a binding resolution on the defamation of religion] Why doesn't he start a day celebrating a sovereign US that isn't bound by international law instead?

    Oh, and the painting of a black child under the table of Noah's Ark... scientist, you know those people our culture has put in place of God? Well, they support the biblical story that race is an illusion. Genetically, there is no group of genes that cause a person to be one race or another. We "created" race by our own policies, prejudices and pride. There is no such thing as race.

  2. The things folk come up with, really. Blasphemy Day? What day in America ISN'T blasphemy day.

    He says that you can't get away with saying anything bad about Jesus or Mohammed. Well, he's only half right.

    It's apparent that he hasn't been to the movies in the past 30 years.

  3. Julie, I can believe that there is no such thing as "race" until I step outside my door and everyone wants to separate us into little ethnic groups. It's sad, really.

    Terry, you are absolutely right. I just thought this article was so ludicrous that I had to share. :]

  4. Oh, I know that racism exists... but the fact that we identify and divide people along a racial line and Noah's Ark involves one family (hence the artist's argument one racial group)... is not going to shake my faith.

    I could walk by the painting and think, "Gee... that artist needs to educate herself about race." But, I wouldn't think, "She's right. The whole Bible is wrong; we have to throw it all out and construct a new, improved, humanist worldview from scratch."

  5. When people reject the truth they will fall for anything else ~ no matter how weird & bizarre.

  6. I'm offended all the time by other people. There is coming a day where everyone will be able to say whatever they want and Christians will just have to zip it.

  7. I have this sneaky feeling I'll be first on the cattle car if it comes to that because I'm so not dealing with that stuff from other people. LOL (I think you figured that out, friend!)

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!
