Random and Requests

Two of my favorite things are converging: Girl Talk and reading. Looky here! Maybe this is pushy, but I have a few requests for my bloggin' buddies to write about the following things: 1. Karen Hevesy (who last night described a mullet as "business in the front, party in the back") please blog about our near death experience on the way to the CLC Titus 2 Tuesdays last year. Everyone, leave comments in Karen's blog begging her... 2. Danielle, please write that post about fashion. For those of you who don't know her, Danielle has fantastic taste in all things, including clothing...feminine, stylish, and modest. 3. Any of you homeschooling moms...could you blog about your educational philosophy, curriculum choices, what you've found helpful. I would love to hear all about it!

That's very sweet to say, Laurie. I have been thinking about posting something on fashion the past couple of weeks. The topic is so broad though, do you have any suggestions/questions to get me started?

BTW, I'm very excited about the new Girl Talk series! Unfortunately, I just finished the book they're going to do, but I'm sure I'll get something out of it, just the same.

Danielle - how about "How to Dress Casually Without (please don't take this personally anyone) Looking Like the Stereotypical Homeschooling Mom" or more seriously some thoughts on mixing colors/patterns.

Laurie - I guess that's assuming we have an educational philosophy besides "survival!", eh?

Danielle said...

Kristie, ha ha, very funny. The first one's easy. Don't wear denim jumpers.

Laurie, back to your wanting ideas for kids for your crafts, check out these great website resources that Bethany told me about:

They are fabulous!

Your wish is my command. I hope I have captured it the same way you see it in your nightmares, "Laurin"

Suzanne said...

Kristie - I think you are fashionable. I was the one wearing denim jumpers (in my teaching days).

Educational philosophy (very abridged)

In the early years, say K-4 "exposure." (On topics of every kind, don't shoot for going deep, esp if the kid isn't that interested. It's sure to come up again before graduation!)

In grades 5-8 the word is "saturation." Go more deeply into the areas they appear to have a God-given bent in (astronomy, writing, art, doctrine). Think of soaking a blanket.

In high school your choices are a bit more cut-and-dried as far as the credits they HAVE to earn to graduate. However, this is where the fun of seeing where exposure and saturation come out.

Should I have blogged this?Sorry for the length.
