Tax Day: “The Government Can”

In “honor” of Tax Day, I thought you might enjoy Tim Hawkin’s “The Government Can.” Today is also Tax Freedom Day, which means (according to this website) that you have finally worked enough days this year to pay next year’s tax bill!

Funny Friday-Things That Made Me Laugh 3/5/07

Today I’d like to share a blast from the past, originally posted 3/5/07: Today we were watching a helicopter flying.  I said, “I wonder what makes it move forward and what makes it stay still or hover.”  My 6 yo son (J) said, “There’s this button. . . ” Yesterday I asked my younger son what book he had looked at when he went to bed last night.  Then I got distracted and didn’t hear the kids talking.  A few minutes {Read More}

Funny Friday: “You Might Be a Homeschooler If. . .”

Here’s today’s Funny Friday! Hope you enjoy it (although it might only be funny if you actually homeschool). My son counted 8 that applied to us; I found 13. For example, Saxon fills ME with dread, so we’ve only used Math-U-See! And I know what a jean jumper is, and we don’t wear them! My oldest finished “Silmarillion” yesterday! We also came up with some of our own: You might be a homeschooler if. . . You know who Charlotte {Read More}

Funny Friday-How NOT to Use an iPad! (Not in English, but I think she says, “How do you like the new iPad I gave you?”)

Mascara Baby

Well, I thought the baby was playing in the basement with his brother and sister. But when I heard, “Mommy, Mommy” and turned around, I realized I was mistaken. He was holding my blush container and a make-up brush, so I immediately knew where he had been. Can you believe that it took until child #7 for someone to get into my make-up? Well, now I know that soap and water won’t remove mascara from all over the face. You {Read More}

Funny Friday- Periodic Table Song

Usually, I listen to one of 2 Christian radio stations while in the car.  But, occasionally, I’ll switch over to the great classical station that we have here in the Chicago area.  A few years ago I heard this song and LOVED it!  It’s so clever–singing all the elements of the Periodic Table. Here are three versions of the Periodic Table Song by Tom Lehrer.  I think I’ll have my kids memorize this when they study chemistry in high school! {Read More}

Funny Friday- Cat Laser Bowling

A couple of days ago I overheard my son ask my 3 yo daughter if a particular lady in a picture was smiling.  She said, “No, she’s teaching her kids.” Funny, but very convicting.  May I smile more! and this video, as a bonus!  

Funny Friday-Twin Babies Talking

Here’s a great one to make you laugh today!  It’s of two twin babies “talking” to each other.  My mother-in-law says she remembers her twin brothers doing this sort of thing. I especially love the gestures to give emphasis to the “da-da-da”!
