Radical Article & Thanksgiving

I have never really felt that radical, but after reading this article I might have to reconsider.   It is an interesting article on home education.  I am always glad that I have the opportunity to home educate.  I can't imagine missing all the "a-ha"  moments with my children.  I love that part of it.

I am from a really big family. ( 19 kids big)  We all got together this last week for Thanksgiving.  There were 52 people there in all.  I have included a picture for your entertainment.

Kayes Thanksgiving. 
Have a great week!

Free Chemistry Book Download

    Every once in awhile things just make you smile.  A friend of mine posted a download to The Golden Book of Chemistry.  Why is this so funny you ask?  Well, apparently this book was banned because the experiments could be dangerous.  But, my understanding is that you can download it now for free (remember I am not a lawyer nor do I play one on TV).
So use your best judgement on whether or not you should allow your children to read it.  It has some excellent explanations on chemistry. I felt more informed reading it.

Origami article on my son./Save a Work Sample

This is a fun article about my son.  I thought everyone might enjoy it. 

This is a great time to choose a work sample of your child's work in all subjects. Maybe a math page, a list of books they have been reading, a picture of a project they are working on, a writing sample, or science notes.   Take the sample, date the sample with month and year, and put it aside in a folder.  Then you are 1/3 of the way to completing your assessment for next year.  

Have a good week.
