My Question: WHY Didn't You Steal a Better Speech?

Ok, I'm not even bothering to watch the nomination and the speeches at the Republican Convention.  Know why?  It hurts to see that Trump and Hillary are my choices.  So I'm not watching.  But I read a partial transcript of Mrs. Trump's speech. (Thank GOD not the whole thing, or I think my brain would explode.)

Is it just me, or do any of y'all have a lot more problem with some of the photos she's posed for than what she said in her speech?  Anyway, here's an in-depth analysis of what she said:

Bla bla bla next generation inspiring, we live in such a great country, bla bla values, bla.  Land of opportunity.

Which with a few bla's in different places, is pretty much what Mrs. Obama had to say years earlier.  So it's this big controversy thing right now and lots of people are talking of it as though it were some huge horrid thing that like, killed people or something.


  1. You are the only one in the world who could make me smile about this. Did you know, there are only 110 days until November 8th?

    I was born and raised a democrat, voted that way all my life....mostly. Well anyhow, I am looking for Trump to give me a reason to vote for other than the democratic nominee, who I don't trust.It keeps getting harder...

    Good Tweets, at least there is humor there!

    1. Awww, thanks! You almost have to laugh at the situation or you'll cry, yk? Such terrible choices we have.

  2. Trump has me medically depressed You'd have to ignore a lot of atrocities to vote for him... I can't fathom. .

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!
