Have I oversensitized my son to violence?

I’ve been thinking about this subject a lot lately. I’ve been trying to come up with the best way to blog about it, but I haven’t been able to get there, so I’m just going to go for it. Unschooling Times quotes an article about preventing boys playing gun games. He has a good point. […]

As Christmas day comes to a close I find the after Christmas blues setting in. With the Christmas season over and no news on the adoption front I can’t help but be a little sad that I no longer have the holidays to distract me. The day was lovely, especially the gift that my mother […]

A “Little” philosophy…

Today we were driving home from Sully’s clogging class when Xan pipes up and says “Mom, I’ve been thinking about something”….now if you read my blog you will realize that this sentence is usually the precurser to a serious mentor/discussion session with this youngun, so I turned down the Christmas music and said “Oh yeah?

A Convert a Convert I have a Convert!

Woohoo! It looks like my good friend Joanne has finally given in to the pressure. :laugh Woo Hoo! I feel like I talk till I’m blue in the face about A Thomas Jefferson Education with no results. It’s so nice to discover that my posts have not gone unheeded. If you are a classical educator […]

I’m a DVD+R Dunce…

I’ve completely ruined two DVD+R discs, trying to save a movie I edited on my puter. It’s a special gift for a friend and I’m trying so hard not to cry about it waaaaahhhhhh! It says it’s too big of a file, but its only 178mb and 47min long. The DVDs say they can record […]

Yikes! My fire alarm will probably not save my life!

Last night we had the opportunity to attend a fire safety course put on by Masterguard. Wow what an eye opener! Apparantly ionization fire alarms do not work 100% of the time when there is a smouldering fire. Not even when the smoke level gets high enough to kill you! :shocked This makes me so […]
