“ So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.” Matthew 7:12 A few weeks ago, our Sunday school class had a Zoom meeting and this is the verse we talked about. It seems like such a simple verse on the surface.Continue reading “Love One Another… No, really!”

A Summer Camp Like No Other
It’s been a week since Collier and I returned from summer camp. In many ways, this was just like any other camp. There were plenty of merit badge offerings, plenty of carb-heavy meals, plenty of sweating, and plenty of yours truly trying to avoid poison ivy. In a Covid-19 world, though, there were also plentyContinue reading “A Summer Camp Like No Other”
Is Homeschooling for Us? Of Course it is!
I’m not telling you anything you don’t already know when I say the last few months have been an unprecedented time in history. Our world has changed and is still continuing to change. One of the biggest changes for many families became “pandemic schooling.” And while pandemic schooling is not the same as homeschooling, I’veContinue reading “Is Homeschooling for Us? Of Course it is!”
Support Each Other
I did something recently I very rarely do on Facebook. I unfriended someone. Now honestly, I’m not the type of person who normally does this. I can be friends with you if we have different religions, political views, or even ~~shudder~~ if you’re a vegetarian. 😊 But something about this comment just completely rubbed meContinue reading “Support Each Other”

It takes the heart of a mother to homeschool. Happy Mother’s Day!
As every autism parent knows, the beginning of April means that the annual “Autism Awareness Month” is upon us. Each April we bring out our blue light bulbs, puzzle piece door wreaths and wear our myriad of t-shirts, socks, hats and every other piece of autism awareness clothing we can find. But for our familyContinue reading “Our Auti-versary”
A Time for the Ages
This is a bizarre, surreal time that we are living in. Back in January, when my one “traditional” lecture course was canceled due to low enrollment, I was sort of bummed. It was replaced with an additional online class, and life moved on as normal. In hindsight, it was a blessing, as I am nowContinue reading “A Time for the Ages”
Hands on Fire
A couple of weeks ago Collier tested and earned his first rank in karate – his yellow belt. He was beaming with pride at having earned this achievement, and we were proud of him. He loves to please. In fact, when he was testing, we were in the room, and we thought he would lose points for lookingContinue reading “Hands on Fire”
Around the Campfire that Wasn’t
On Wednesday, Collier and I went to our January session of “Homeschool Appreciation Day” – his Collierism for Class Day at Valley Creek Academy, the school we use for our homeschool cover. Even though I am always the only dad there, and really the only adult male there, save for the retired fella that teaches science andContinue reading “Around the Campfire that Wasn’t”
