My life as an at-home momma of 3 amazing kids...it's kind of like shoveling snow in a blizzard.

On my reading list.....

Just finished.....
Lies My Teacher Told Me by James W. Loewen
(Previously recommended by Anna B on her blog. Matt is still finishing it up, but we have both enjoyed it. Every interesting stuff in this book about the things our history textbooks get wrong and they things they actually leave out. It's frustrating when you think about it. We'll definately have to work on supplimenting the American History coursework the kids do at school with some home study and discussion.)

Currently reading.....
When Gifted Kids Don't Have All the Answers: How to Meet Their Social and Emotional Needs by Delisle & Galbraith

Waiting in my stack.....
Queen of Camelot by Nancy McKenzie
Losing Our Minds: Gifted Children Left Behind by Deborah L. Ruf, PH.D.
Stand Up for Your Gifted Child by Joan Franklin Smutny
A Year in the Life of William Shakespeare: 1599 by James Shapiro
Lies Across America by James W. Loewen

    i will never forget learning in college biology that deoxygenated blood is NOT blue, as my elementary school teacher told us. This is why you cannot depend on teachers 100%. Everyone makes mistakes, especially when the curriculuum is devised by someone who doesn't care anyway.
