Guns and Our “Rights” (PART 3 of 3)

I find it most upsetting in the “We will not let the government interfere with our right to bare (sic) arms” touting, is that those who are saying this aren’t listening to all the details of what’s actually going on in the world. They are only hearing “stricter laws” without hearing the details. There is […]

Guns and Our “Rights” (PART 2 of 3)

I’m starting here with the actual wording of the Constitution of the United States of America: Amendment 2 – Right to Bear Arms. Ratified 12/15/1791. A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. Those who are […]

Guns and Our “Rights” (PART 1 of 3)

One of the many reasons I don’t post on this blog as frequently as I used to is because of Facebook. Using that resource, I’m able to post notes and photos and general life comments to my friends and family quickly and easily. That said, since the shootings in Arizona on January 8, 2011, there […]

#Facebook and the Different Sides of Me

We all have split personalities — we’re one person with our best friends, and another person in the boardroom.  Yet, I believe that we really ought to be the same person in all situations, just discussing pertinent information (and parts of us) depending on the situation. This can be seen in full force on Facebook […]

Breast is Best

As a longtime breastfeeding advocate (I used to photograph women breastfeeding children of all ages in my photography studio in Iowa), I rarely talk about this subject anymore since my children are well past weaning themselves  (and I rarely think about breastfeeding anymore, although it used to consume my entire life). However, with breastfeeding so […]

Happy 200th Birthday, Charles Darwin!

Today marks the 200th birthday of Charles Darwin.  Many people call it Darwin Day and there are hundreds of celebrations being held all around the world today! Many homeschoolers choose to homeschool so that their children won’t learn about Darwin.  Whether you believe he was 100% correct, partially correct, or completely wrong in his findings, […]

Thanks to those of you who have been concerned about the lack of new posts over the past few days. I can assure everyone that I’m fine and everyone in my family is fine. We’ve been busy. 🙂 We’ve also been working on some behind the scenes portions of this site. You’ll be seeing a […]

Learning with Movies

A big part of my children’s lives are movies. We’ve met many homeschooling families who either don’t allow movies at all into their children’s lives, restrict movies to only “educational ones”, allow only one movie per week (or other predetermined timeframe), or at a minimum restrict the content of the movies the children watch (either […]
