Homeschool fail or win? While reading aloud to the girls about the "End of the World" fears of medieval people around the year 1000, I read a paragraph about people turning to cannibalism and eating clay and dirt because because no one planted any crops due to believing the end was nigh. I got absolutely NO RESPONSE from my kids. Blank stares out the window. I reread the lines. No response. I yelled "OH MY GOSH, THEY WERE EATING EACH OTHER!" They woke up. "What? What are you talking about?" We haven't stopped discussing it since. See kids? Pay attention and history can be really interesting...and gory.

Also, these t-shirts are great.

[livejournal.com profile] altarflame, I went looking for the tshirt your friend was wearing in that picture you posted and found these. I love them. Especially the one for the kid "I'm supposed to be socialized?!"


This is a link to videos of Luci's TKD yellow belt test and videos of Zoe's latest gymnastics meet.

Yay videos! Luci's form (kata? maybe different terms) starts out just like one our dojo does early on, but then it changes. She looks like she's having fun, and I heard some good kiais from her! :)

Also, heh. I've had similar experiences where I say something and wait for a response from Hannah and... nothing!

I love these shirts. I saw one recently that said "school is for fish". I was very tempted to get it for my son. :) He *hates* being asked why he is not in school every time we are out haha.
