Weekend

Saturday, February 15, 2014

Well, I have a long weekend this weekend. I am off Monday because of President's Day. Then, I am off Tuesday because I have an eye appointment. So, I will only be working 3 days next week. I do not think I will have a sub Tuesday. But, my aide is prepared to cover for me. He's a retired teacher, so he will do fine.

I do not know anything from the State being here on Thursday. It may be weeks or months before I know anything. I'm hoping for an update on Wednesday at team meeting. But, I have to leave team meeting early to go to the therapist's.

I'm headed to my parents' tomorrow afternoon. I'm really not looking forward to going. Especially now that my brother won't be there. I haven't seen my brother since the beginning of November. He leaves today for a 10 day cruise. So, I won't get to see him this weekend and he won't be playing at my school like he had planned. We're going to try to reschedule him to come to school when he's home in April.

Monday, mom wants me to spend the whole day with her setting up a sewing room in my sister's old bedroom. Then, she wants me to start coming down on weekends so we can sew together. I'm not sure how that's going to work out. I usually have a couple rough days when I come back from seeing my parents.

If I could get out of going this weekend, I would. But, I don't see a way out of it. Even the therapist agrees that there really isn't a good way to get out of this one.

I found an article that someone wrote that has basically summarized the bizarre teachings I grew up with. Here is a link to the article.

If the link doesn't work, here's the web address you can copy and paste: http://homeschoolersanonymous.

This nicely summarizes what I was taught. I'm taking it to the therapist on Wednesday, and I emailed a link to my pastor so he could read it.

    This had nothing to do with HOMESCHOOLING as a rule. This article is about a cult who also home schooled! Please get that word out Rebekah, if you can.
Most of the people who read the article are confused that this is about a cult, not home schooling.
Homeschooling as a rule is the best schooling America has to offer especially now that the government has stepped into our teaching policies ..... Most aren't even allowed to pray. Regardless of what the parents want.
PS does your therapist think it's a good idea to see your parents? I'm unclear on that.

    I red the article you posted with your blog. What a terrible experience the person writing this article must have had. Her experience surely comes from one of the extremely radical groups. Hopefully the majority of home schooling experiences are better than this. I thank God for my public education and for that of my children. Guess what, none of us are demon possessed.

    WOW! If that is Home schooling (and I do not for one minute think all home schooling is like that) it should be outlawed. I know some home schooling mothers and they do amazing jobs and their kids and awesome kids who worship regularly at a well established Baptist church. If this is supposed to be a God based way of teaching, it is not. It is a cult. Lord, have mercy. That was very enlightening and I am glad you sent this to your therapist and you pastor. They truly need to read this.

Bekah, setting up the sewing room sounds like fun to me. Sorry you will not get to see your brother. I know you were looking forward to that. Try to have a pleasant time at you parents. Remember, I am here if you need me.

You are in my prayers. God bless. Luv ya. Judi
