- Eating frosted chocolate cake and Havarti cheese for lunch. A sort of culinary stress marker, that is. #
- DS14 went to ballgame right after church, neglected to free enormous German shepherd from kennel. Shepherd, freed by DS17, now in my lap. #
- Did I mention enormous? #
- And smelly? And needy? #
- And once again my budding Seafarers of Catan empire has been rudely smashed by the local land-grasping tyrant (aka Pete). #
- DD10 thinks Christopher Paolini is the greatest writer ever. Buying the audio of Brsinger because it is her greatest desire. It…hurts… #
- Signs of spring and incipient heart failure: Enormous black snake, curled up in front of my office door. #
- Finally cleaned out my office…because my assistant refused to take "Spring Cleaning" off my calendar and also bribed me with food & drink. #
- Writers, want guidance? Watch Syfy Original Movies. Protagonist! Conflict! Outside complication! Crisis! Decision! Romantic Complication! #
- Pollen. Argghhh. #
- Just dropped DS17 off to spend weekend w/DS19 at college. Watched them charge up the dorm steps together and had a serious Old Lady moment. #

I am a ‘new to home schooling’ mom and would like to teach world history. Your series intrigues me, but I was wondering if it is written from a ‘young earth’ perspective or other wise?
I know what you mean about Paolini. Eragon inspired my dd 11 to write her own novel, but unlike other books the kids love, I made it through the first book, barely.
It seems that Catan brings out the worst in grasping tyrants of all sorts! We have Settlers and Cities & Knights but haven’t tried Seafarers yet.
Dd had a case of Paolini-itis here too. I’m not even a writer, but it hurt. Why is that? Probably grows from the same moral failing that causes me to crave a fast food burger once in a while. But she seemed to thrive on a diet of Paolini for almost an entire pre-teen summer. A head-scratcher.
