Three Crazy Things I Believe

Everyone is nuts.  Of this, I am virtually certain.  This evening, thanks to a homeschool forum with moms freaking out about PSAT Merit Scholarship cut-off scores, I began ruminating about some things I firmly believe *even though* I know most of the world finds them ludicrous.

Three crazy things I completely believe:

1. Intensive ACT/SAT/PSAT test prep is crazy, not to mention expensive.  Skip it.  Acquaint your kid with the basics of the test, practice a few timed essays and let the chips fall where they may.

2.  Dinosaurs coexisted with people.  I put this in the biblical, not crazy category, but I realize much of the world might disagree with me.  So be it.

3.  Soda is low class.  I blame my mother for planting this one.  I don't even know how she managed to instill this thought and I don't remember her ever saying a word about it, but somehow I just know that my mom is responsible for me thinking this.

What are three insane things that you totally believe?  


  1. Homeschool parents have the luxury of being creative with their kid(s) since the curriculum is not one-size-fits-all. My homeschooled middle schooler got creative with her need to study for the SSAT by indulging her passion for cooking with her need to improve vocab and reading comp. The outcome was the recently published, "Cook Your Way Through The S.A.T." The PSAT is next...

  2. I looked at some of the preview pages on Amazon, Jennie and it looks quite cute! I'd be more than willing to review here on my blog if you'd like to provide a give away copy for one of my readers!

    Your daughter would probably fall outside my crazy belief as her approach is different from the expensive test prep courses that repulse me.

    Thanks for reading the blog!
