@samuellcollins: Meet an award-winning 9 yo homeschool film-maker in booth 335 @FPEA on Friday at 4pm #hsbloggers #teachthemtruth #movie #fpea
Another week, another homeschool convention.
It’s hard to believe they are almost over. All in all, these booths are ALOT of work.
When we arrive on Thursday our booth looks like this:
“Boys couldn’t wait to watch them (the videos), so we already watched Singapore. 🙂 They loved the codes and the fact that Samuel does geocaching (which we do too!). Add in that Middle kid is also a Samuel. It was fun to watch.” – Another happy Mom!
For Star Wars fans only…. Read the rest of this entry »
Wow, I just saw the Kentucky episode that we shot at the Answers in Genesis Creation Museum, it’s great. We had such a good time working with Buddy Davis on this episode and you can tell. Make sure you tune in this weekend on the NRB network, DIRECTV channel 378 at 11am EST on Saturday. I think this is our best show yet. We are trying something new with this episode, you’ll have to tell us what you think. I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
I’m off on another adventure,
I’ve been working all summer on math: fractions, decimals, and percentages. Sometimes I get it, and sometimes it just seems so ‘hard’. Am I suppose to add, subtract, flip, divide or reduce then multiply? Right-side up, upside down, flipping and twisting; what am I suppose to do with all these numbers?
Who made this stuff up, and why do I need to study it?
I didn’t think I needed to know until I began making pens on my lathe. God has made numbers complicated yet simple at same time (and thank goodness for the men who produced rulers); there are whole numbers and then smaller parts called fractions. When I measure wood, it’s not always a whole number, so I use fractions, too.
And, just when I think fractions can’t get any smaller I’m reminded of my chemistry lesson in atoms and subatoms… and smaller and smaller the pieces get. I wonder how small the smallest number is? How big is the biggest number? Only God knows (and that’s okay) because I’m still trying to decode all the others inbetween.
Well, back to math lessons…
Dad and I were on with Tim and John on Friday on the show Today’s Issues. If you missed it, you can watch it on YouTube here.
We had a great time in Bali. Our friends at Wakaland Cruise tours took us out to show us the island. When you go to Bali, go out on a Wakaland Tour. You will not believe how much stuff they can pack into a day.
Tell them Sam sent you. BTW, don’t worry they won’t make you hang on the outside of the Range Rover.
It was a thrill to get to talk to Peter Furler at ICRS. Did you know his favorite Newsboys song was “He Reigns”, it’s one of my favorites too. I got a copy of his new solo album. If you like the Newsboys, you’ll like this too. It’s great. Thank you for the album, Peter.
