Pros and Cons

Statistically speaking, homeschool kids generally do well on tests.

This doesn’t mean that they always have the correct answers.

During this evening’s family worship, we were reading from 1 Samuel 29.  The Philistine ruler Achish wants David to go into battle with him against the Israelites.   The Philistine commanders are having problems with this, because David is an Israelite with a bit of a reputation for killing Philistines.

Daddy:  “What side were the Philistines afraid that David would fight for?”

Child, firmly: “The Egyptians.”

On the plus side, the following dialogue took place yesterday:

Child, in bedroom: “Mom, the baby has a poopy diaper!”

Mama, in laundry room: “Ok, I’ll be there in a minute to take care of it.”

Child:  “Oh, that’s all right.  I changed it.”

Without any residual mess, might I add.  Sometimes the answers are just fine.

I am a farm-raised homeschooling mom. I take great joy in making nutritious food that inspires people to take seconds. Thirds, anyone? We are a God-fearing, Christ worshiping family that enjoys good friends and good eats. If the kitchen is clean and the living room carpet is visible, then that's a nice bonus.
