Yesterday on TODAY

As many of you know by now, my family was on The Today Show yesterday, October 14, 2011. Many people have sent me private and public messages about our appearance. Some sent congratulatory messages, some wonder what kind of feedback we’re getting, some want to know our thoughts about the segment, some want our advice […]

The future birthplace of Captain James T. Kirk from Star Trek

As big Star Trek fans, we just had to go to the future birthplace of Captain James T. Kirk since we were passing by Riverside, Iowa, on a recent trip. Our only disappointment: the giftshop wasn’t open! Here are a few photos from our fun time:

Our interview with KGUN9 about Radical Unschooling

On Friday, July 16th, Jennifer Waddell and her cameraman Jimmy came to my family’s house to interview us about our Radical Unschooling lifestyle. Since it’s been asked: Opening our home to the interview was a big decision that my family made together. If even one of us had decided not to, the answer would have […]

Top 10: Essentials for Homeschooling Successfully

I was recently asked in a round about way what items I felt were essential for homeschooling success. This is the IN ORDER list of tangible purchases my family couldn’t live without in 2010 and still be a successful homeschooling family: High speed internet and at least one household computer that all members of the […]

It’s Wonderful! Marvelous! Fantastic! Spectacular! Terrific!

My older daughter, Zoë, is enamored with words and their literal meanings.  We’ll sit and watch a movie together and she starts laughing at the most mundance sentences.  Awhile ago, as we watched a Star Trek: Enterprise episode, she could barely contain her glee at the phrase “tractor emissions” — she was visualizing actual John […]

Top 8: Favorite Guy Movies Viewed in 2009

As in other years, this is my list of the best movies I saw over the year that would primarily appeal to the man of the family.  They aren’t all new; I don’t get out to the theater that often.  I’m a bit late with the list this year (and a few short) since I […]

Jake and Haley — Our Love for the American Dragon

In honor of loving the show Jake Long: American Dragon, my youngest daughter named her two most recent Webkinz pets Jake and Haley.  When we first watched the show, I misunderstood the lyrics “people were not bragging ” as “the purple one eyed dragon”, thus our purchase of the purple Emperor’s Dragon. 🙂 Misunderstood song […]

The end of our Star Trek Journey… or just the beginning

Today marks the day that my family and I have officially watched every single Star Trek episode.  Yes, all of them! We started several years ago watching them in chronological (by release date) order with Star Trek: The Original Series (3 seasons), mixed with Star Trek: The Animated Series (a little oft forgotten two season […]

Stop Doing Things that Suck the Life Out of You!

An old friend of mine recently read my blog and was pleased to see that we agreed that iceberg lettuce and schools both suck the life out of people.  I loved his observation, and I especially love that we’d both come to these conclusions separately.  🙂 I’ve been thinking about my friend’s comment and I […]
