Tidbits from the Homeschool Convention

In no particular order, and without any cool graphics....things I learned at the homeschool convention.

  • A nerf gun is a must have on next year's school supply list.
  • Sometimes a silent e is added to the end of the word just to make it look longer.
  • Special needs children are expensive, but God will provide.
  • Don't doubt what God has called you to do.
  • Trust the Lord to open doors.
  • Pre-test and SKIP chapters and sections.
  • Don't push a gifted student. If she loses interest and needs a break, let her take it!
  • Get back to going grocery shopping only once every 2 weeks.
  • Give myself grace.
  • Read the Aeneid, The Divine Comedy, and The City of God.
  • I do know how to spell erroneous.
  • I do not know how to spell arrogance. (It's -ance, not -ence.)
  • We need to learn formal logic and classical rhetoric.
  • Using 'goes into' to talk about division is ridiculous. 
  • Toilet paper and leaf blowers made the best sermon I've received in a long time.
And finally---
  1. Enjoy teaching and learning
  2. Find and memorize Scripture verses daily.
  3. Remember my goal.

Great tidbits! I love the scriptures that discribe the good qualities of a distractable learner (since I have one). :-) Also, love the short division video! I would be curious to know how to use nerf guns for school? We are overrun with them! Haha!
