  1. You stole 156 cookies!


    Rules of the game: if you find this (anyone except the cookie thief themselves) then post here to say "I caught the cookie thief! BUT... someone else took 157 cookies from the cookie jar!" That way we know this player has been caught and we'll look on another profile. Next, copy this entire post and paste it onto someone else's profile (player must have more than 100 posts and must have been active in the last month.) Lastly, change the numbers so each increase by one. It will be easier to track that way. Please post your findings in the thread entitled SOMEONE STOLE A COOKIE! Forum Game. Have Fun!

  2. lol, thanks- well, I do think sleep is important :)

  3. "I find sleep to be more important than a tidy house, personally."-- Have I told you lately that I love you? :D

  4. Hi Colleen, thanks for your thoughtful message :)

  5. "I keep trying to click into other message boards, because I do often feel rather...extreme here, since (I think) most people here are conservative and Christian and I am neither"


    Hi Peela, I'm quoting you here from a thread I just read. I just want to say that I am a Christian, and I have *always* enjoyed your thoughtful perspectives on various issues. You don't seem extreme, in context of these forums, to me. You just have thoughtful perspectives that you are willing to put out there. So thank you for contributing! I have learned much good from many of your posts over the years.



  6. I think it was a valid and useful conversation. I miss Ria too :) Her view on this made an impact on me.

  7. Peela,


    Thanks for your thoughtful response to my post. People misunderstood me when they define "teach" in a narrow way and that was not my intention. I would agree with Merrian-Webster definition of teach:: to cause to know something b : to cause to know how c : to accustom to some action or attitude d : to cause to know the disagreeable consequences of some action

    2 : to guide the studies of

    3 : to impart the knowledge of

    4 a : to instruct by precept, example, or experience b : to make known and accepted

    5 : to conduct instruction regularly in


    All of the above is "teaching" in my book. So I agree with your post! :001_smile:

  8. re the books & documents of the bible - you might enjoy a (fictional) book called Letter of Mary by Laurie R King. It's part of a mystery series which starts with The Beekeepers Apprentice but this one hinges on aspects of the bible. King is a biblical scholar in her other life :-) Good, intelligent mysteries.

  9. thanks Firefly! I guess its an issue I feel passionate about.



  10. Peela, I just wanted to say I loved your post in the homeschool graduation thread. I think you were spot on!

  11. Peela - consider this a good rep for your advice on the "hitting a wall in homeschooling" thread. Great post!

  12. Peela, I always enjoy your wise & down-to-earth advice. (I was just reading your response about making connections during logic-stage history.)


    Thanks, as always! :001_smile:



  13. Merry Christmas***~
