Comments are Open!

It's official--I still haven't learned everything there is to know about being a blogger!

Apparently I had things set up so that only other bloggers could post comments on this site. We'll, now that has changed! One of my friends told me recently that blogging felt like talking in an empty room. I don't want this blog to be that way, so please, leave your comments!

To test whether or not my comment feature is now working, would you please post a quick comment for me? To make it simple, you can answer do one of the following...

  • Tell me your favorite thing about being a homeschool family,
  • If you're not homeschooling, ask a question about homeschooling that you're dying to know the answer to. If I don't have the answer, I'm pretty sure one of my readers will...or...
  • Post a link to your favorite blog for Christian families, and let me know why you think I should be reading it!
  • Asher wants a puppy. Should I get him one? If so, what kind?
Let the discussion commence!!!

Tiana, you have a lovely site! Asher with dark hair threw me for a while. Only my Timothy (15) is still blonde. All my other toe heads have darkened up a bit as well.

Dogs are like babies and quickly growing into inquisitive toddlers. Ask Asher who will be the full time mommy?

Our Max passed away due to a liver disease this summer. Once again I gave into my children's desire for a puppy. The deal was the same as with Max, that they take care of him. It takes all four of the boys to take care of Ben the Australian Sheppard. Ben needs lots of room to roam and has high energy. He will be about half the size of Max, and will be about 65 pounds when full grown. Herding dogs may not be the best choice for small children.

Females are a bit easier than males but more expensive to buy and to have neutered.

Happy decision-making!

I'm a dog person, so I felt compelled to write to your last question... If I may, I suggest you look into the following breeds, or mix of breeds: Jack Russell Terrier, Golden Retriever, Norfolk Terrier, Bernese Mountain Dog, Newfoundland... etc. There are obviously many other choices out there to think about as well. I wish you the best in your search! :-)

We homeschool. Our oldest is in Kindergarten. I think we might be getting ready for a puppy. In my experience, the purebreds seem to have the brains bred out of them, but are fiercely loyal (spaniels, labs, shepherd varieties), but the mutts learn faster, and seem to realize that they ARE the mutts and need to cuddle more. Not a scientific annalysis, just pure opinion.
Thanks, Drew
