I'm Pro- Second Amendment... But...

Maybe some people shouldn't own guns?  Our local police department just sent out the following alert on social media:

"(The Police Department)  has gotten an increased number of calls about theft from vehicles, particularly guns stolen from UNLOCKED cars. Roll up the windows, lock your car every time you leave it and take all your valuables with you (including your wallets, house keys, weapons, phones, social security cards, etc). Lock any identifiable information, like your insurance card with your home address, in the glove compartment. Help protect your belongings, unlocked cars make easy targets for thieves."

A commenter added that maybe taking your garage door opener out of the car MIGHT just be a good idea as well.

Their previous post reminded us all not to give credit card numbers over the phone to pay outstanding traffic tickets and warrants to people claiming that paying fees over the phone will get them out of jail time.  I'm pretty sure that if you have a warrant and they know where you live, they will eventually drop on by to visit because they're really customer-service oriented like that.  They also give free rides to the station as part of the "wanted criminal package" and you are under no obligation to tip them.  At least I don't think they accept tips.  You can try it and find out, though.

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!
