Pros And Freedoms To Home Schooling Your Children

Posted by TheSloneGal on February 3, 2014

homeschool2First of all, No one wants to have a certain time to go to bed, especially kids and no one enjoys getting up early in the morning, having any wheres from 15 to 30 minutes to get completely woken up dressed then gather all of their things up and head out in the cold or rain waiting for a bus or being driven to school to start the days all over again.

Why Do We Think This Way About Death

Posted by TheSloneGal on January 29, 2014

So many things have made me think of this, one song that really made me think of this is no other than a song by Larry Cordle titled Gone On Before, this song is about him having a dream about his mother and she tells him that she is with Jesus and all is wonderful.  Here is what I think about that, it is a beautiful song and having a dream about a loved one being safe and with god makes you OK with their death but every one thinks that when a loved one dies he or she goes to heaven. People believe in God so much that is what they all think will happen and so on. I do believe in God and Jesus very much but not a holy person for I question lots of things and every thing.

Christmas At Mystical Aunt Amy’s

Posted by TheSloneGal on December 17, 2013

My two siblings and I always spent part of Christmas Eve at Aunt Amy’s… the
most mystical woman I have ever known.

Aunt Amy’s wonderful white washed cottage, sat beside a brook. On the
riverbank, a majestic weeping willow bowed its branches over her very
special bench. This had been made as a memorial to her beautiful retriever,
Lion King.

We always approached the cottage with the usual feelings of excitement and
trepidation. As we knocked on Aunt Amy’s door, she was hardly ever there to
greet us… the door just creaked open into a long, dark hallway, where the
sound of ticking could be heard from a tall, solemn clock on the wall. Aunt
Amy did her very best to make us feel like we were in a horror movie and it
worked…

I remember the smell… cinnamon! Aunt Amy would always light the joss sticks
just before we … Read the rest

THE STUDENT'S MYTHOLOGY:

A Compendium of Greek, Roman, Egyptian, Assyrian, Persian, Hindoo, Chinese, Thibetian, Scandinavian, Celtic, Aztec, and Peruvian Mythologies


The New National Geographic Treasury of Greek Mythology

The new National Geographic Treasury of Greek Mythology offers timeless stories of Greek myths in a beautiful new volume. Tales of gods and goddesses such as Zeus, Aphrodite, Apollo, and Athena and heroes and monsters such as Helen of Troy, Perseus, and Medusa will fascinate and engage children’s imaginations.

National Geographic completes the book with embellishments of each story: sidebars for each god, goddess, hero, and monster link the myths to constellations, geography, history, and culture to help young readers connect the stories to real life events, people, and places. A family tree and a “cast of characters” profile page help make relationships between the characters clear, and a mapping feature adds to the fun and fascination. Resource notes and ample back matter directing readers to more information round out this luminous book.
