{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

The Bad News about Homeschooling

The Bad News about Homeschooling
(click on the above link for the entire article)

If you homeschool your children, you will be putting them into a boat and rowing in the opposite direction of culture as a whole. You will be training them to seek different ends. You will prioritize family over peers and thinking skills over cramming for the test. You will teach them that every subject finds its beginning and center in God, and that He can’t just be dropped off at the front door like a backpack they can grab again on the way out. They won’t know what it’s like to ride the bus every morning, finally find their locker on the first day of school, to have to wear what’s currently “in” or face the consequences, to be the best in their class, or cheer for a school team. They will miss out, in other words, on the typical “life of the American teenager.”

Farmer's Market Lunch


Miranda and I took a trip to the Marshall Farmer's Market this morning. We brought home fresh green beans and naturally grown pork chops. Served with mashed potatoes made from golden Trader Joe potatoes it made a delicious lunch.
