Haha! Yes. As per my favorite nanar, Manos: The Hands Of Fate, there exists that certain something that makes it worse than bad. The desperation, the not knowing that what they were making was bad, but yet the heart and effort that went into it all lead to such a viewer experience that you can't discover elsewhere. Or as you would say, a celebration of its badness.

As Dan Neil points out in his article "Why We Love Bad Movies", we enjoy them because they are made by "very ambitious, strange people" and they leave behind something of their mind, or "cinematically transferred subconscious". http://articles.latimes.com/2005/aug/07/magazine/tm-neil32

We want to show that we are not ruining our kids. That they can and will be just as capable of working with others, supporting themselves, overcoming adversities and challenges, and making the most of opportunities that come their way.

The way to do that is not by clinging onto this idea that our kids need to prove something to the world.

The Ferris Bueler theory that I have heard is that Cameron was his sickly, nerdy friend who really died and Bueler hasn't gotten over his death. Makes sense because Cameron is never seen by any adults.

THIS: *In my opinion, “Let me know how I can help you,” is the equivalent to two politicians saying, “Let’s do lunch sometime!” It’s a kindness usually extended in words only with a rare follow up. Without a date, time, and place, the lunch will never happen. I understand people mean well… but my answer will always be a nod, a smile, and an, “Okay. Thanks.”* -from +Oklahoma City Moms Blog

We didn't really have Havanese on our list of possible breeds for our new puppy. It was actually listed wrong in our puppy magazine as a large breed that needed a lot of exercise. So when the local kennel said they had Havanese puppies and sent us pics - we had to do some research. Turns out these little furballs are a hardy, family-friendly breed that loves people and is eager to train.

We couldn't be happier with Korra - she is such a chill dog.

If random strangers on YouTube can raise $40,000 for this homeless man to have a house (with everything paid for one year) then I know we can raise just a little bit for my friend Vicky Austin to get a decent, reliable car. Please consider donating just a little towards helping out a mom and her amazing daughter HERE: http://bit.ly/1g6CYD1

A little bit about their situation: "I am a single mom on disability. While I do my best to be as self-sufficient as possible, I find myself in the position to ask for your help. Recently my car broke down and is beyond repair. . .I have several health conditions that require a lot of medical appointments.

I have major news! The Bussingers are leaving Korea! Sad, I know. But we are also thankful to see family and friends again back in the US. As we organize our belongings for the movers, I wanted to  reminisce about what we covered in a year of delight-directed #unschooling  

So - here is what my 13 year-old accomplished during what would be her 7th grade year.

I was having a great conversation online about children, and reading books, and pictures. It started with this article about allowing kids to not finish books, to read a page over and over again, and about the importance of pictures in a story: http://bit.ly/1o4pBFD

Then we started talking about artistic types, and how so many of us as children had favorite illustrators and lived inside the worlds of a good picture book. Imitation is where most art starts, and providing kids with beautiful illustrations helps them see and "get" art. My friend Heather shared her favorite children's book illustrators that influenced her as an artist.

With interest-led learning, you stop spending money on trying to cover a huge amount of information that will probably be forgotten by adulthood.  Instead, you focus on what your child is curious about.

Stability in an otherwise chaotic life

If there was just one reason I could give as to why so many military families choose to educate at home, this would be it.

We want to show that we are not ruining our kids. That they can and will be just as capable of working with others, supporting themselves, overcoming adversities and challenges, and making the most of opportunities that come their way.

The way to do that is not by clinging onto this idea that our kids need to prove something to the world.

Crazy how our idea of some famous structures is totally off. The pyramids zoomed out was shocking to me. And Central Park zoomed out it awesome!

From the comments: "Can Christian Films Be Good? Many already are. You just didn’t know they were “Christian” films. And most of the films that self-identify as “Christian” films will not be good because they are made by amateurs and hobbyists, not by professional filmmakers who know what they’re doing."

"Educating children has been turned it into a huge monstrosity, complete with claws and fangs. . . It is no wonder we homeschoolers pay mounds of money to purchase boxed curricula; we have been conditioned to think that learning is a horribly complicated thing."

Keep it simple!!! #homeschooling   #unschooling

Labeled autistic at 2, this mom was told her son would never talk and probably never progress much. Now her son is working in theoretical astrophysics (I hope I got that right) with adults at age 15!!! An amazing young man and a great story of building on the strengths our kids have instead of always focusing on weaknesses.

“It’s really important that when you have a label, you don’t let that label define you. What are your children good at? Let that define them. Create motivations that are self-driven. Let them pursue what they love.”

Yes - so much this!

They ask and I'm there with resources. We look at things and notice things. We talk a lot. And they pick things up from living life. So no, I don't teach them all by myself. The world teaches them. #unschooling

3yo saw big sister painting some suncatchers today and he really wanted to paint also. So we sat down with the washable paints. He first figured out how to mix colors and make rainbows. Then he painted sharks (lots of sharks) and then he started trying to make letters. I was surprised how many he kinda knew. He also mixes up English and Hangul (Korean) letters because he sees both and we read both. I've gone over Hangul more than English alphabet with him since we always read signs, books, etc. on trips. Anyways, that led to him wanting to know the letters in his name. I painted it for him and he traced each letter with his paintbrush. Reading and writing naturally through play.  #unschooling

"Have you ever wondered how you learn? I’m not talking about your education as a child or as an adult. I’m talking about how you learn. Surely there are things you know NOW that you didn’t know as a fresh college graduate. Well then, how did you learn those things? Who taught you? Who created the curriculum for you to learn? 

If I were to guess, I would say you found something that interested you, you used your strengths, you talked to others about it, you applied a good dose of passion and voila! You learned something. "
