33 Ways to Learn That Are Way Better Than Traditional Schooling Nowadays, I am inclined to think, as Clark Aldrich writes, that “What a person learns in a classroom is how to be a person in a classroom.” And, frankly, being a part of the broken, immoral education-industrial complex, the monolithic monopoly forever, futilely trying […]
From and : You know how sometimes people on your friend’s list post about stuff going on in their life, and all of a sudden you think “Wait a minute? Since when are they working THERE? Since when are they dating HIM/HER? since when???” And then you wonder how you could have missed all that […]
Sam and I had a very nice date night while Katie was out with her beau. He had started making chili last night, finished it tonight, and added corn muffins. I’m not a big fan of chili (I won’t eat it if Sam didn’t make it), but it was a very satisfying meal. The girl is […]
Today’s entry, Homeschooling High School in College?, is over at Academy Caritas. I expect to update there more regularly, now that we’re officially homeschooling again.
It’s been SO long since I updated things here! Not that I think anybody really missed me, but still, I should have kept it up a bit better. Katie tried attending a good high school near us and loved it. She got great grades, was chosen to work on the yearbook (it’s a very competitive […]
I got through NaBloPoMo, as ridiculous as it was to commit to posting at least once a day for a month.

So, the Crazy Hip Blog Mamas want me to talk about what reading means to me or my child. How about both? You might have noticed that I talk, a lot, about reading. I think Now Reading shows at least four five of the books that I’m reading right now, and that’s a fairly normal number. […]
I haven’t mentioned how Katie is doing in school in a while. While there have been some adjustment issues switching over to “school” from homeschooling, she’s got all As. The “life by the bell” thing has been a nuisance, and she and one of her teachers just do not communicate on the same wavelength, but […]
I just wanted to post a link to an interesting but very basic article about socialization, since it continues to be something idiots bring up regarding homeschooling.
I don’t think so, honestly. And, if she’s anything like those who participated in a recent survey, I don’t think Katie will, either. …according to “Homeschooling Grows Up,” a research study on adults who were homeschooled, 74 percent of those who were homeschooled are currently homeschooling their own children.…The “Homeschooling Grows Up” survey said that […]
