Dear Diary, it’s been a while. When that damn virus hit my pc and then thanks to flash discs or whatever they’re called, Pete’s laptop too, I was cut off from the world. At first I was happy, needed the break, but then I started missing life in cyber space. So glad to be back, sort off. I’m still waiting for my pc to come back, but at least Pete is letting me use his machine, so good of him.
So much has happened in the last month, and is continuing on an ongoing basis. All of which is very very exciting! More on that later!
School is going well, we are very busy with science and the whole debate about the existence of evolution or not. It’s an interesting debate. Really gets those critical thinking juices flowing, and we are slowly realising that Darwin was an ass! As most of the scientific community opposes his views for lack of evidence!
Then the age old question reared it’s ugly head again. Why home school? My stock standard answer, Why conventional school? If you feel happy with sending your kids to school, then great! Why are my choices challenged? I don’t give a rat’s ass where you send your offspring to school, so why do you care so much, mmmm? And just so you know, I don’t think South African education is brilliant, not ALL schools mind you, but most. So if you’ve found that great school, wonderfull!!
Then I hear that said person’s son only reads 2 books a year, where my boys have to get through 20 books this year, yeah, I know it sounds alot, and believe me, it IS! And the books are not short little stories either, the average page number 270, with NO pictures! Yeah! So lets not do the whole school is better or home school is better crap, I don’t care and neither should you. My boys are very happy and if your kids are happy, then great!!
So with this, a new era dawns, if you will, I have streamlined my internet use to the bare minimum, because I really don’t have the time to sit and read and browse like used to, I have SO enjoyed my time off and realised that I need to take care of me, and not worry or care about the rest. I used to frantically try and fit everything in, now it’s all about time, how much I have for the internet, and how much I have to myself. So although I missed cyber space, I won’t be living in it again. Feels good.
