California Turn

First: Some humor.

Check out this hilarious re-write of "I Will Survive" (the first year of homeschooling). Good stuff.

Second: The second line of the song plays well into the news (yes, I'm reporting really old news by now) that California overturned its initial ruling.

You no longer need to be certified to homeschool your kids. Honestly, that's good news for Sonlight too: We can keep providing great, literature-rich books to families in California as a valid educational model.

Many people are breathing a sigh of relief.

But not everyone. Joanne has a very thought-provoking post on her blog about "Why I am not happy with the CA Court’s Decision."

Well, actually, Joanne's issue has nothing to do with the ruling, and her tone was a little more "fire" than some people may be comfortable with, but the points she raises are really good and encouraging. So, check it out. If you want, feel free to come back and tell me what parts you liked.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I'm honored you would take the time! I'm a little in awe that you are actually WITH Sonlight! I read several of your posts and really liked them. The "I will Survive" remake was very funny, and I'm soo glad Californa overtuned the ruling. Thanks again for your comment!
BTW- being with Sonlight do you recognize my blog title?

Luke, I love Joanne's passion. If more of us were passionate in the public square, our culture might look a little different today. Kudos to Joanne for speaking out and to you for linking to her.

Sorry for not getting back to you all sooner. It's been busy around here!

I do not recognize any allusions in "spoileddaughteroftheking"... sorry. Please enlighten me if it's from a title I should know <smile>.

As always, I am thrilled whenever I get comments! Thanks so much for dropping by!

Hey Luke!

It took me a while to figure out who you were with Sonlight ( I knew you must be related someway) and now I'm even more impressed.

The Royal Way is from God's Smuggler- the first book I ever read from Sonlight. Have you read it?

Luke Holzmann said...

Oh! Your "Blog" title (doh! Some of us need to learn how to read <smile>). I thought you meant your username... which didn't ring any bells.

And honestly, "The Royal Way" wouldn't have pulled up anything for me either, even though I have read Brother Andrew's book. In fact, I even got to meet him once! Way cool.

Thanks again for commenting! I appreciate your readership!
