My son is sitting across from me doing Math-U-See. Doing this for a month and a half very very sporadically and never forcing him to keep going after his interest wanes, we’ve accomplished 88 pages of work that’s 20% of the total coursework for math for his kindergarten year. Currently he is crossing out the … Continue reading

How I learn
Growing up, I was sure. I liked being the person who had the answers and I still do. I enjoy being the person that can find them out even if I don’t know them. My curiosity is very strong, but I grew up being taught that curiosity for its own sake wasn’t right. We didn’t … Continue reading
Reminiscence- My Non-Prom
As many of you know, I attended 12 years of Christian school. The only year I wasn’t in Christian school I was home-schooled. That was a joke to be discussed at another time. I have many interesting stories from my years in church school. No, literally, both the schools I attended were in churches. My … Continue reading
Not a meltdown kid.
I’m a tss. Therapuetic support staff. I work with kids who have behavioral disorders or intellectual disabilities with problem behaviors. Last year I started working with a meltdown kid. Three days a week at least in the 10 hours I spent with him, he had a meltdown. I mean a crying, yelling, throw himself down- … Continue reading
Prison, Slaughterhouse, Airport or School? I’m really not sure.
As many of you know, I went to Christian school. The first one I went to had a total of 80 kids K-12 when I left it. The one I graduated from had a total of about 180 students K-12. There were 6 kids in my graduating class. To be short, it was teeny tiny. … Continue reading
Tiny Flashy Beggar Season
That’s summer around the ‘marts’ of the country. Little able bodied kids standing around slurping drinks and shaking cans. I think I would consider myself a let leaning independent and it still pisses me off a little to see them out there rattling the change jars to make money for their teams or organizations. I … Continue reading
Suffer the Children
A politically correct complaint In a UC Methodist Daycare You can’t say K-i-l-l They say And he was h-a-n-g-e-d! What if they go home and ask what that means? He’s got to change the story. It’s the Bible… Fold your hands little children Let’s pray for what’s important Thank you God for our food, For … Continue reading
Confession: I’m not sold on evolution
In college, one of my really good friends asked me in a shocked voice if I didn’t believe in evolution. “No,” I said “and you wouldn’t have to ask if I believed in evolution if it was scientific fact. No one asks if you believe in gravity.” We are very mutually fascinated with each other … Continue reading
Christianity must devalue life to “Sell” Itself?
I hate working with the LIU (Lincoln Intermediate Unit). They use edible reinforcers like obesity and degradation don’t exist. “Come sit for an M&M Johnny.” *Shake M&M container* Could they get anymore pathetic? If a child won’t do something they are supposed to do because they are told to do it, we’re failing. Bribes are … Continue reading
My Fundamental Christian College Tour Part 2: Social Life
Not surprisingly, sex and sexuality is of high interest on the campuses of BJU, Pensacola, and Clearwater Christian colleges. After all, it’s of huge interest on every college campus. After talking about modesty in Part 1, the next topic that I wanted to talk about is the sexual relationships or lack thereof on these campuses. What does “dating” … Continue reading
