Ditto Melissa Wiley's Post and Something Else Homeschool-ish

I'm a fan of Melissa Wiley/Scott because of many things, but it all comes down to the fact that she's an inspiring person. One of the things I look to her for inspiration is homeschooling and one of her recent posts rated wild applause from many of us who avidly follow her blog. If you're homeschooling, planning on homeschooling or just interested in learning more about it, you should read Home Education: Delicious and Nutritious.
One other thing, you may think that I'm done with my Terabithia phase, but you are not-at-all-sadly wrong. And because I still am very much into it, I finally decided to give the movie RV a chance (on HBO). It's really an okay movie to watch if I didn't have a zillion other things to do with my time. Anyway, I'll spare you googling seconds and just tell you the connection. Jess in Terabithia is Karl (C?) in RV. Anyway, in the movie there's a homeschooling family that freaks out the lead family, but in the end, everybody realizes how awesome those homeschoolers are and it's actually the lead family who's got problems. I know not all homeschoolers are like the movie's Gornicke kids who skip grades and are studying for college tests at 15, but there certainly seem to be many of them.;-) Btw, if you're a fan of Kristen Chenoweth like me (gah, for a fan, I'm still not sure where the i's and e's go in her name), she's the homeschooling WAHM in the movie.
