Gallon-Smashing!


  Apparently it is the new thing to do.  Throw gallons of juice or milk around so that they break and then pretend to fall down in it.  There are several videos of this type online and it isn't little old ladies doing it; it's young guys.  They seem to have some sort of contest going for "most outrageously unbelieveable accident."

  1. I came across one of the videos the other day, so I won't watch it again - it's already filed away in my "guess you had to be there" file.

    I'm all for good clean fun, but what I want to know is do they pay for the smashed gallon, and clean up the mess? If not, I'd have to give it two thumbs down.

    1. Sue, it is supposed to be "funny," people doing this in public and acting like it is an accident. I think it's dangerous and expensive. Only think of how when you spill milk in your fridge it gets EVERYWHERE and is a big mess. The staff time cleaning all the fridges and floors, the loss of the product and insurance if some old lady slips...

      I hope they catch these kids, really.

  2. What idiots! I bet they don't pay for it. It bothers me that they are preying on the good will of people. It makes me wonder if people like this didn't get enough attention as children. Sigh.

    1. Or they got too much and are so special no one else matters. I don't know... from the looks of this young man, he is old enough to just get over it and move on already.

  3. Utterly ridiculous behavour!!! And now that these videos are out there, if someone really does fall over spilt milk they are not going to be believed.
    These BOYS (clearly they are not adults) must be bored, but still that is no excuse.

    1. I've had milk leak before in the store. Sometimes there are very small holes in the container you don't know about or the seal isn't that great. These are not heirloom containers.

      I think you're right.

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!
