I received an e-mail this morning from a friend, telling me about a new site, Know Home Schooling. It’s a homeschooling wiki. I added my blog listing to it this morning. Looks like it might be a real help to new homeschoolers as more veterans add their info to it. Check it out. http://knowhomeschooling.com
Yesterday we actually got back to reading our world history book, “The Outline of History” by H. G. Wells. It seems like we’ve been working on the final chapter for months! I read for about an hour yesterday and we’re down to the last three pages. Hopefully we can finish it today. Then we can pick back up the Richard Maybury book(s) I want to cover this summer before David goes off to Evansville.
Darn J. K. Rowling and her announcement yesterday about her next (and final) Harry Potter book. Here she hasn’t even gotten it all written and she’s already telling us that two characters (main characters!) will die in the final book. And her wording was such that it certainly seems possible that Harry could be one of those. Something to the effect that no one else can write more books in the future about Harry if he dies in the last book. So whom will she kill off? My boys speculate that it will be Ron and Hermoine. Surely she wouldn’t kill them off? More likely Hagrid and maybe … maybe … oh, I can’t even begin to guess! I only know that I’ll be extremely saddened when the series ends. And hopeful that Rowling will write more. Although topping the HP series would likely not be possible. And certainly she doesn’t need the income! It would just be interesting to see what other areas her writing brain might find appealing to write about.
