No bones about it, a home schooling "aha" moment

  EWWWWW!!  Probably not the kind of image you’re expecting to see from a vegetarian-tree-hugging-conservative-home-schooling blog I’m sure!  Well there’s probably more weird stuff you’ll see here too…….But anyway, to the point of this post:  These are beef bones, probably from some poor cow’s leg (now how’s he gonna win that limbo contest?).  I picked …

A Month’s Worth Of Posts In One…..

 So this morning I decided I wanted to put some of my most recent posts from Facebook in one place (some of the posts have references to photos that aren’t listed here and that’s why).  I didn’t know the best way to play this, so I just listed them from the first of the writing …
