Jackpot!!!


Is what the boys thought when they discovered this. (Not a good picture, but then by this juncture there’s really no way to pull off a flattering photo shoot.)

I’m such a spoilsport: “Use sticks! Not your fingers! Don’t fling that around! DON'T PUT IT IN YOUR MOUTH!!!” Hey, I’m starting to think that the Charlotte Mason style of homeschooling might be a good fit for us, should it come to that. (Look: I’m trying to educate myself against the probability of having to “school” my children—or “unschool” them—wow, more namedropping!)

Somehow, this just seemed an appropriate companion piece to Rebekah’s reminder that it’s Debate Night.

Cheers!

RE: Homeschooling. Let's talk.

Ok, time to point you to our family's favorite book...mostly becasue it made the Rev turn white as a sheet...Who Pooped in the Park http://www.amazon.com/Who-Pooped-Park-Yellowstone-National/dp/1560372737/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1222473496&sr=8-1
A must read for moms everywhere. Sadly, I recognized coyote poop over a year later, without having to reference any books. I would have preferred such scat to be more than 100 feet from our tent campsite though.

Luckily, I am an expert in cryptozoology and have identified the corpse: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chupacabra

Dakotapam: I think our kids would get along just fine :) I'm sure you're also familiar with another classic in the genre: Everyone Poops. And coyotes are one of the reasons we haven't ventured tent camping yet...

Gauntlets: Believe you me, we'll be doing lots of homeschooling talk in the very near future. (As in, you telling me everything you know.)

Pr. H.R.: Yeah, that's why I don't have my goat yet. Too many of those around. In fact, I think I spotted one creeping into the last voters' meeting (kidding! kidding! i wasn't even there!)
