Smellin' the Crayons.

So, I'm getting out of the hizzy, fo' shizzy tomorrow.  I think I've unconsciously packed the day like nobody's business.  Everytime I think of something I need or whatever, I think "Do it Friday!  weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, Friday!"  

I really can't wait to see all the home schooling nerds tomorrow.  There's only so much I can say to friends and family before their eyes glass over and you get something comparable to "wow.  that's really swell."  But tomorrow, ima be with people that LIVE home schooling.  Just so ya know, I'm also the kind that pours over the back-to-school ads and waits like a puppy at the door when expecting anything from Rainbow Resource.  When I was a kid, I just loved packing up my brand new book bag with my brand new smelly crayons, rulers, paper, pencils.. on and on.  I'm sorta still living the dream by home schooling.  I try to get the Coopster into it, but his attitude is well, a 5 year old's attitude.  ...whatever Mom.

I am having trouble with my science curriculum.  There's plenty out there that disagree, and frankly I don't wanna hear it... but DAMN! all the curriculums focus on Creation!  Maybe I'm too used to being a public school kid myself, but I just can't wrap my head around it.  What am I talking about????  Why, I will give you a very good example.. my friend Facebooked it today:

This is what I have to work with.  Secular science for home schoolers is just so few and far between.  Makes a girl confused and question what she knows, what she thought she knew and what the hell she should pass on to her kids.  If you teach your kids secular science, throw a girl a bone... or an email.  Please.  (I feel it necessary to add here that I am Catholic... some things we're learning next year will be from Catholic resources....  but science.... I just dunno...)

Welp, there's your ramblings for the day.  Enjoy.

    I don't understand how home schooling works, but do you have to use a "curriculum?" Can you not just teach your kids science-y things that they and you find interesting?

  2. Here's the thing... although because I live in the Atlanta area it probably sounds nearly comical (see: APS cheating scandal in any and all news resources around here...) Home schoolers do have to take the same tests as the public school kids beginning in 3rd grade. I want to make sure we don't skip a beat and then elaborate on the cool stuff.
