October Plans

I have been very remiss about posting our "plans" for the month lately.
We pretty much took August off and September is too busy to post much or
stick to any real schedule, so here we are in October already.

Today, October 1st is the Birthday of former President Jimmy Carter.

I love Mr Jimmy. He walks the walk and I admire him greatly for it.
He is also one of those people I would love to have lunch or dinner with.
It would need to be one of those long drawn out Italian style meals...
lots of chatting and laughter between the courses.

We will be reading James Carter .
Maybe we'll have peanut butter sandwiches for lunch. ;-)

I have pretty much the same excuses. Living life, ya know?

So glad you stopped by today. :) It's nice to have found your blog! Your little princess is adorable. I LOVE the picture of her reading at the very bottom of your blog. You have captured a look on her face that is just priceless!

This is the best photo of Mr Jimmy, ever.

We were so swamped yesterday, I don't think his birthday was even mentioned at OHQ, which is awful! Had I remembered, I'd've taken in cake!

Jimmy Carter is a good example of a former president going on to do amazing work for the country/world.

Peanut butter sandwiches... too funny :)

My homeschool buddies and I are all posting pics of our "home schools" as part of our idea sharing.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
