She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink. Some days, she's the reason you wish you were an only child. ~Barbara Alpert

Homeschool Sports Awards

Last week, we participated in the Homeschool Sports Awards. Chandler played on the baseball team and both boys ran cross-country. In the photos, you can see their coaches. They had fun meeting the new kids and participating on the teams. Chandler wasn't old enough to letter this year in any sport, but should be able to next year.

Absolutely...Politically Correct

The following is the 2007 winning entry from an annual contest at Texas A&M University calling for the most appropriate definition of a contemporary term.

This year's term: Political Correctness.

"Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."

Hot Molten Lava

During our tournaments it's almost become tradition to go to Chili's and get a hot molten lava cake. The guys love it. Of course it is a "no-no" in between games. We drove to Muskogee, OK, to play this weekend only to turn around and come back home because of the weather. We of course had to eat while we were there. The waitress was convinced that all of the boys could share one cake. She obviously isn't around 13 year old boys very much...needless to say, they all got their own!
