"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

High School Happenin's

Another typical day here~
9:53 am
~ student A is eating breakfast while reading the news on line(breakfast so close to lunch)

~student B discovered the salt dough( to be used later today to make Christmas ornaments) and is re-creating a Play*Doh moment

~student C is playing with fire(okay she is not playing with fire, but making a fire in the woodstove)

Perhaps a post on what we really do in our school should be next???

I have a feeling "school" goes on there about 12 hours a day, as everything you guys do is a learning process and you are so well read and informed. I have no fear on that score :o)

see where you home school. May I recommend a wonderful book on the American Revolution....1776 by David Mccullough. I couldn't put it down even though I knew how it ended. I am reading McCullough's John Adams. Enjoy your blog.
