More Reasons Why I HomeSchool
Friday, April 24, 2009 11:06 AM
I read not one, but two appalling stories today in the news about children and the public school system. I could not have decided to homeschool at a better time. Not sure what area this story is from, but two fifth-graders were recently arrested for selling marijuana at their elementary school. My oldest daughter will be in 5th grade next year and I can’t imagine... Read More...
Extreme Makeover Home Edition
Monday, April 13, 2009 10:53 AM
I normally don’t watch the Extreme Home Makeover show, however, friends and family contacted us last night to watch this special Tallahassee, FL episode of a large family who desperately needed a new home. I regret that I missed the beginning of the show and the introduction of both parents and their large family of 1 biological son along with about 6 adopted... Read More...
Spanking Children
Thursday, April 2, 2009 10:54 AM
Is “spanking children” a part of the job description for a school official?

Octuplets Born To A Mother of Six!

I have been hearing in the news, off and on, about a single mom who has given birth to octuplets. Yes, she had 8 babies at once! Well, it wasn’t until today that I have heard more about the real story and I am just amazed. I have two daughters who are spaced apart by a little bit over 4 years and I am constantly calling my best friends for support when I feel... Read More...

What in the World Happened?
Wednesday, August 6, 2008 9:20 AM
Things have changed so much since I was a young girl. We used to be able to come home from school and have mom at home to greet us. A reasonable amount of homework meant that we still had plenty of time to go out and play until it got dark without mom and dad worrying about where we were. On weekends (after breakfast and cartoons), our parents did not see us... Read More...
