toy guns, small words, magic window

Another peaceful kid with a toy gun:

A new song is added to the "small words" collection, a page to note ancient language in modern literature.

Magic Window
The congruence passed when Marty turned 19, but the magic remains.

It's been busy lately on the Always Learning list, which usually leads to more page additions and new pages. Things will slow down again before long, I'm sure.

peace, spouses, museum, bongos

New material, up top:

Spouses—how unschooling can improve relationships

Your House as a Museum has been touched because I found the bongos,
and cleaned up the format.

The aforementioned and long-previously mentioned bongos:

Holly took that photo a few days ago.

dads, times tables, math (and a typical day)

This is a problem: "dads, times tables, math"

It's misleading. None of those three had anything to do with either of the other two. Fun, huh?

I left them there because that's the order in which I added the links to draft, but seriously, they're unrelated.

And so, to the links:

new bits and clean-up on the dads page

new stories about multiplication (the scary "times tables"), and some
older stories moved from a more obscure page to this guessable-link page

The Return of Linda Wyatt! (with updates, for the front page of the
math section, which has always featured Linda's writing)

There's a new "Typical Days" account, in photos:
(Those are Amanda's girls to the right.)

Noisy Peace

Not news on my site, but of my words elsewhere.

Sandra Dodd - A Loud Peaceful Home The Victoria Home Learning Network of the Greater Victoria area (British Columbia, Canada) has quoted me extensively and linked to my site. If you have friends or correspondents in that area, send them this: http://www.vhln.org/

They didn't link to this page, but I can!

I like the bio that was with that, so I've brought it here for fun.

Sandra Dodd is the mostly-peaceful mother of primarily-peaceful children, in a generally peaceful home in Albuquerque. Her dog is at peace with her cats. Sandra once taught Jr. High English, in a long-ago age, but met Keith Dodd and they lived happily ever after (so far so good).
