Lions and Tigers and Bears! Oh My!

Lions and tigers and bears! Oh My! It would have been pretty cool if I could have said we went to Oz, but we didn’t. 🙂 This past weekend we enjoyed a mildly chilly day at the Dallas Zoo. In the month of February,… Continue Reading “Lions and Tigers and Bears! Oh My!”

The Love of Learning With Homeschooling

Jeff just finished reading The Story of the World Volume One to Madison this evening. Volume One is Ancient Times. Next, they will move on to Volume Two, which is the Middle Ages. I try my best to keep up with the Homeschool Facebook… Continue Reading “The Love of Learning With Homeschooling”

The Perks of Homeschooling and the Stereotype of Socialization Issues

I know many people think that homeschooling is a radical approach. Honestly, I didn’t, but I never considered it.

Asynchronism: The Gifted Child Flipping a Switch

I think the hardest part of raising and teaching a highly gifted child is asynchronism. One moment she’s so mature and talking as if she is 20 and the very next second she is clapping and dancing around as if she was 3. I… Continue Reading “Asynchronism: The Gifted Child Flipping a Switch”

A Whole New Outlook on Parenting a Highly Gifted Child

Parenting Madison brings a whole new definition to parenting. I am very grateful she is my child. I am envious of the outlook she has on life. If I had the insight she does or have had the trust that I have in her….… Continue Reading “A Whole New Outlook on Parenting a Highly Gifted Child”

Being Human
