If you’ve been reading this blog for any period of time, you would have noticed that it’s been a long time since I’ve written here.  With my business growing, and the boys getting older, I’ve had very little to write about when it comes to homeschooling.  We’re still homeschooling the boys, but it’s more school at home, than home schooling.  They are both going to be using Odyssey Charter High this coming year, and that leaves very little for me to actually do in the school.

More Socialization

I love my homeschool group.  Even though we don’t get to do a whole lot with them because I have to work during the day, there’s still the teen events that the boys participate in.  They love them!

Free Resource – What About Penmanship? A Guide for Homeschooling Parents

whataboutpenmanshipCsm Free Resource   What About Penmanship?  A Guide for Homeschooling Parents

I just found this great free resource!  It’s a guide for homeschoolers on how to choose the right penmanship to teach our children and how to go about doing it.  I know how hard it can be to figure out how to teach cursive.  There are so many different types of penmanship styles, it gets a little confusing!  Luckily, this will answer some of those questions and make things a little easier for you.

Website Review – A Child Writes

I found out about this great website on Facebook.  I think it’s a great site for anyone with kids, but I can definitely see the wonderful opportunities for homeschoolers.   This is not just a “pen pal” type of social networking site for kids, it’s also a charity program that kids can get involved in and win some cool prizes.  Here’s what the site says:

Teens Can Be So Much Fun

Or ways to make your kids say “you suck”.  LOL!  File this under they say the darndest things!

My 16 year old comes into my office and sees a nearly empty bag of pretzels on my desk (yes I”m too lazy to throw it away), and wants to know if he can have some.

I say “sure, except it’s empty”

Roger “There’s still some!” takes the bag of crumbs and runs out of the office just as I say bring me the other bag.  As he’s bringing me the OTHER bad of pretzels Roger says “You suck mom!  These taste gross.  The other ones are better!  Why didn’t you tell me these were FAT FREE!?!?!”

Me “Because they both are fat free.  All pretzels are fat free”.

Roger “Nu uh!!  This bag SAYS “Fat Free” on it and the other one doesn’t.  Why’s that???  HUH??”

Me “Advertising”

Roger checks to see what the back of the bags say and sees that ONCE AGAIN  Mom is RIGHT!!  Both bags have 0 grams of fat.

Roger “But this one tastes gross!  and the other doesn’t!”

Me “Could be because you ate the crumbs from a bag that’s been sitting open for several days”

Roger “You still suck!”

Aren’t teenagers great?

Spring Break?

springAUSTIN0702 468x594 236x300 Spring Break?

My sons are counting down the hours till “Spring Break”, which is going to be next week.  They are going to be spending the entire week with my mom, because they need some “pampering” and no one does that better than Grandma… and Grandma needs some strong young men to help her around the house right now too.  heh!  Roger, who “goes” to Odyssey Charter High School, has an actual spring break.  He doesn’t have “class” or course work next week, and won’t be going to P.E.   But Jack, who is using Time4Learning for his curriculum doesn’t HAVE to go on break at any particular time, or at all for that matter.  But I’m letting him not do work next week so he and his brother could do stuff together… like fight over who has control over the T.V. and computer.

Are You Really Surprised?

Is anyone really surprised that a nation with compulsory government education would one day require compulsory government healthcare too? – Spunky HomeSchool

This is a question posed on a Facebook Friends status, which was passed around from one homeschooler to another.  And it’s so very true.  Are you really surprised that this is the way our nation is going?
