Last Sunday, Marguerite and I went down to Central Florida to visit craftyturtle's parents. A friend of theirs is a retired teacher who gave her "school stuff" to them. Craftyturtle is a middle school science teacher, and the retiree thought crafty could use the "stuff". She had a lot of stuff, so they offered me a chance to go through and pick what i want for our homeschooling. Yay! Look at all the good stuff we got!

on another note....a pet peeve. I enjoy reading a lot. But I do not enjoy reading books that have a child as the main character. Let me tell you why! If a child were to write a book or dictate a book to someone, it would not sound like anything you would want to read. For example, I started (and stopped) a book last night that had a seven year old girl for the main character. I have a seven year old girl. The character's thoughts and speech sounded like a mature adult. My child doesn't sound like a mature adult, and I don't expect her to. She is a child! I have only read maybe one or two books that have a child as the main character and they sound appropriate.
ok, rant over!
