Book Blast and Giveaway: Son of War, Daughter of Chaos

 

SonOfWarEBookSon of War, Daughter of Chaos

Aislynn is accustomed to watching for the enemy. Her parents instructed her from the time she was young to look for the signs: people with greater than normal strength, eyes that can glow green, and have the ability to jump long distances. Over the years, Aislynn has come to view her parents’ fears as quirks—things that get in the way of having a normal high school life.

When Aislynn’s mother dies under suspicious conditions, her father doubles his restrictions. But all his precautions can’t stop the boy with glowing green eyes from finding Aislynn. She realizes too late she’s been drafted into an ancient Egyptian war, whether she’s prepared or not. Continue reading Book Blast and Giveaway: Son of War, Daughter of Chaos

TOS Book Review – Flourish: Balance for Homeschool Moms by Mary Jo Tate

Flourish Book Review
About the book

Title: Flourish: Balance for Homeschool Moms
Author: Mary Jo Tate
Publisher: Apologia Educational Ministries
Pages: 288
Where I got the book: I received this book free through The Old Schoolhouse Review Crew in exchange for an honest review.

My review

In the foreward, this book and system is described as “life management, not time management”. All moms have challenges trying to fit in work, kids, recovery time, friends, spouses, family, and an endless list of household tasks. This particular book addresses those issues faced by homeschooling moms, with particular interest in moms who work from home. Mary Jo Tate is also a single mom, and she hasn’t forgotten this sector of homeschoolers who are frequently ignored, particularly in the Christian homeschooling world. She mentions single moms throughout the book, and there is an entire chapter devoted to encouragement for them (us), as well as things other families can do to help make a single-parent family’s journey easier.

When Is a Joke No Longer Funny?

Yesterday I saw a video on Facebook. It had been shared by two people who are wonderful, loving people, and the title of the video was “Good, clean…funny!” It’s a video that seems to have first been posted online in 2011, but was posted on Facebook two days ago, and has gone viral. (I’m not going to link to it. If you have to see it, you can Google it.)

The video, which runs less than two minutes, is two teen boys pranking a third (their “friend”, according to one site I found) in a community shower using the “never-ending shampoo” prank. (Clean fun? Get it?) And when I first started watching it, it was funny. But then you start to hear distress in the victim’s voice. Then he starts saying, “Help me. Help me,” and it sounds to me like he’s crying. He may not be actually crying, but he is asking for help, and you can see him getting more frantic as the video goes on.

Kid Quotes (7/13)

B: I love you more than any girl in the whole world.
I’ll remind him of that in 10 years.

I just walked into the playroom in time to hear Blake say, “Blake, you’re a genius!”

B to me, after I got sick: I don’t think I want to touch you, because, well, you’re infected.

The next day, this happened. At least the kid understands where germs come from.
I’m always reminding the boys to wash their hands, but I’ve been really pushing it this week. Jack just woke up and tried to give Blake a hug.
“Don’t touch me! You haven’t washed your hands yet!”
Nothing like a little peer pressure. Or paranoia. Either way. Continue reading Kid Quotes (7/13)
