  1. Gorgeous fall weather, relaxing weekend with family

  2. I found the cookie thief!

  3. dangermom stole 76 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 76 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 type in red so that the numbers 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!

  4. This is the one I want. It's a pattern and you sew it, though, so not what you're looking for I guess.
  5. Nope. They would be off to school. I do have life insurance, but my husband isn't cut out to be a homeschooling SAHD living off insurance. And my mom works full-time. My plan is not to die. :001_smile:

So what I would do is have the new book and leave it out for a little while before you really start using it. Show it to her in a happy way without actually starting it yet. Pretty soon she'll probably be excited about her brand-new book. The point above about being smart is an
  8. Yanno, if we (the West, that is) had paid one iota of attention to the cultures, beliefs, and opinions of the Middle East for the past 100 years or so, instead of carving up the land and treating the people according to our own whims, we wouldn't be in this mess now. :toetap05:
  9. I think your BIL is a cuckoo clock. :) One of the big problems facing us today is that far too many kids cannot write a coherent sentence, much less anything more complex. We need more language arts, not less. And the history question isn't even worth addressing.
  10. Thanks for the advice. You've reminded me of some of the 'good enough' classes I've taught--like the time I talked about gardening, when in fact I'm not really a very good gardener, but I do know 'enough.' :)
  11. It is? C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien would disagree, and the early Christians saw it as a good thing. That is, there have been many Christians throughout history who know all about that, and see Christ as the 'true myth' foreshadowed in many cultures. (I just want to be accurate, you can think as you like of course.) From the :
