The Scoop on Granny


Dreaming of the mountains...

Who is Granny?

I'm the incredibly blessed mother of 9, "Granny" to 16, and wife of "The Papa," the knight-in-shining-armor whose loving support has made it possible for me to stay home and give my life to mothering, homemaking, and 26 years of homeschooling. Life at Granny's House is full of laughter, friendship, books, music, lively debate, writing, and good things to eat. My days are made even more meaningful by coming alongside other moms, giving them the support and encouragement that I lacked as a young mother and helping them to network with each other in ways that strengthen homes and families. A few times a year I board a plane to visit my "away" kids, to attend the birth of a grandchild, or to enjoy some lazy days with my best friend, but I always love coming back to...Granny's House.

    Sunday snippets...

    Well, we have just a snippet of time left before CJ and Tony's big day. I was startled to see her Facebook status today saying that she's getting married NEXT WEEK. Okay, still 13 days, but it is technically next week. So we have essentially one week for everything major and then the crazy wedding week begins :-)

    Who'd have thought we'd triple the amount of coffee we drink in this house with the arrival of the Keurig? Making coffee is so much fun that even Tim has decided to join in. And don't even get me started on the hot chocolate!

    Dave and Kristen have signed a rental agreement on a house in Fort Worth, so they'll be moving shortly after the wedding. I'm actually glad about the timing...I wanted them here during all the activity and not just popping into town the day before the wedding. But I'm glad they have a new home secured and can start the next stage of their lives without being too far away from us. (For those of you who aren't familiar with the relative distances up and down I-35 in Texas, it's about 275 miles, or 4.5 hours by car.)

    A real serendipity is that the house where the Slaughters will be moving is two doors down from one of my brothers and right across the street from another brother and his young family. They'll also be within five minutes of lots of other extended family, including The Papa's parents. So settling in should be easier than in a neighborhood of strangers, and it should make for some fun family dinner nights!

    Are you registered to vote?

    Forgot how much I love REAL ranch dressing. Well, you know, the kind you make from the packets. I can actually eat it without salad, though I'm not sure I should. Can we just call it cold soup?

    Up this week from Netflix: Into the Arms of Strangers, Princess Kauilani, and Up. And I'm going to stream a series on China.

    Food for thought as we wend our way through the maze of important decisions on how much public spending there will be on health care: How much is a life worth?
    This article discusses a new drug for end-stage prostate cancer that costs $93,000 for roughly four months of extended life expectancy. That's $775 dollars a day. Would you pay for it? Would you insist that your insurance company pay for it? Would you expect the government to pay for it? Just asking.

    I will be going to see Waiting for Superman. And no, I'm not Waiting for DVD. 

    I'm not too happy with the new WYSIWYG editor in Blogger. Lots of bugs, and some of the changes don't make any sense to me...they make things more and not less complicated and intuitive. But then, how many people are still blogging? Maybe they just don't care.

    And how about Eddie Long? I'm sure he's just misunderstood.

    Okay, short language rant, since I can't hold some of this in: Folks, you're not bias or prejudice about're BIASED or PREJUDICED. (Unless you hail from a town with under 300 people, and then you're hereby excused and you can be bias about anything you want.) You don't get orientated, you get ORIENTED. There is no such word as irregardless, no matter how many dictionaries have caved. DON'T.DO.IT. And vaccinations are part of PREVENTIVE health care, not preventative. ALL RIGHT is TWO WORDS, as is A LOT. Whew....all right, that's relieved enough pressure that I can last another week.

    This week I gave Tim, 13, a writing assignment. I told him that it had to be at least 300 words and that it could go up to 750. He asked for some leeway and it ended up being around 850. Then he asked if he could do another one along the same lines and if I'd allow him time in the school week to write it. "Sure," I said, nonchalantly as I could manage. So without waiting for the new school week he started in on it, and as of this writing it's 5,547 words. We'll be contacting a publisher  ;-)  (And yes, this is some success and enthusiasm I chalk up to our new writing program!)

    This week will see the turn to October and we'll be headed for the holidays. If that comes with cooler weather, great. If not, I'll have a really hard time getting into things. I'll be cranking up the air conditioner and driving everyone in Granny's House into hoodies.

    The Snippets will see you next month :-)

    Things that make you go hmmmm....
    You gotta wonder about a country who buys up all our debt but needs our help to take care of their disasters and hunger...

    BEIJING -China spent tens of billions of dollars on a dazzling 2008 Olympics. It has sent astronauts into space. It recently became the world's second largest economy. Yet it gets more than $2.5 billion a year in foreign government aid — and taxpayers and lawmakers in donor countries are increasingly asking why.

    And then we have to rethink that hold parent thing about "Finish the crusts on that peanut butter sandwich! Don't you know there are children in China starving right this very minute?" Change that to, "Don't you know there are kids whose daddies are on the unemployment rolls this very week?"

    Coming soon to a country near you...
    More than a quarter million British children have been accused of racism since the country passed its Race Relations Act in 2000, the Daily Mail reports.

    Munira Mirza, a senior adviser to London Mayor Boris Johnson, says teachers are being forced to report children as young as 3 years old to the authorities for using alleged "racist" language.

    "Teachers are now required to report incidents of racist abuse among children as young as three to local authorities, resulting in a massive increase of cases and reinforcing the perception that we need an army of experts to manage race relations from cradle to grave," she wrote in Prospect magazine.

    (And they don't believe in original sin.)

    Please, make sure you are registered to vote, that you know where your voting site is, and that you make a plan to vote, either on November 2,  by absentee ballot, or during your state's early voting period. Without a plan, it's very easy to miss deadlines or let other things get in the way. Don't let this happen to you this year--I can't think of a time in the past half-century that your vote has been more important than it will be this year and in 2012. Talk to everyone you can about getting registered and getting ready. We can do this!

    In which unions do what they gotta do.'s still unclear how the Teamsters will safeguard the rights of members who do work that's considered a federal crime.

    Read all about it.

    UPDATE--The Papa's comment:

    "The new members work as gardeners, trimmers and cloners for Marjyn Investments LLC, an Oakland business that contracts with medical marijuana patients to grow their pot for them.

    Their newly negotiated two-year contract provides them with a pension, paid vacation and health insurance. Their current wages of $18 per hour will increase to $25.75 an hour within 15 months, according to the union."

    I'm betting this paragraph, if it comes true, will force price increases in the product which will, as the market always does, make those who don't really need the product, to stop buying it. Therefore, demand will drop, profits go down, corporate will seek to balance their books by laying off workers who will then go on strike to protest the lay-offs. While on strike the supply will dry up, prices will go up, corporate will see higher profits if they compromise w/ the workers, workers re-hired, and the cycle goes on. Isn't free market capitalism great?

    Make no mistake: I consider it despicable that a backwoods "pastor" in Florida caused an international incident and brought attention only to his lack of intellect and his misunderstanding of the Gospel by threatening to burn a Koran.

    But a lot of us have overlooked the unspoken incongruities and inequities in this whole Muslim sensitivity thing. Read carefully what Mark Steyn has to say today (in his September 20 post) and then examine whether you, too, have internalized what Islam has to say about you.

    Sunday snippets...

    It's fall. And though usually the beginning of fall is a cruel joke to those of us here in South America Texas, it was actually below 70 before sunset this evening, and that gives me hope. Now if we can just avoid too much rain in the less than three weeks before the wedding. We need to park about 75 cars on our "land" and it would be nice not to have any quicksand, and it would be nice not to experience a deluge during the outdoor ceremony.

    Our school is going well this year, but then again, we've way downsized. John Caleb is doing several courses through a local co-op and is just doing math and history with us. I've got lots of time and space now for one-on-one attention with Tim, and that has been very good for both of us.

    If you're looking for a good writing program and don't mind giving it some real effort, please look at Classical Writing ( This is the program I've been looking for for a quarter of a century, and it's one I'd love to use with younger kids (my grandkids and others) when my own teaching responsibilities are over. I love to write, but teaching writing has always been my least favorite "chore," right there behind Texas history.

    Learning to walk again with one leg considerably shorter than the other has been one of my biggest challenges in the past decade. And after two false starts at having shoes made for me that would equalize the difference, this week I'm so encouraged! Our friend Cody Longenbaugh brought me in to his company and they worked on two pairs of shoes for me, and I now have hope that I'm not going to have to spend the rest of my life limping or wearing shoes that look like my grandmother's :-)

    This afternoon I watched half of the Ken Burns series on Thomas Jefferson. I can never seem to get enough of Jefferson or of trying to figure him out. He's one of the most interesting figures in all of history to me, even when I disagree with him. A couple of things stood out to me today. One is the quote from Tristram Shandy that would have remained obscure except for the fact that Martha Jefferson wrote it out to Thomas as she lay dying and could no longer speak...

    Time wastes too fast: every letter I trace tells me with what rapidity life follows my pen. The days and hours of it are flying over our heads like clouds of a windy day never to return...

    And then there's this, a quote from a letter Jefferson wrote to William S. Smith in 1787. It more prescient all the time:

    God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty.... And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.

    No, I still don't know what I'm wearing to the wedding. I'm working on it.

    To the soprano who sat in back of me this morning and blessed my morning and my worship with your beautiful singing, thank you. You were a gift.

    And this week, I WILL make Pioneer Woman's "The Bread." Yes, it's glorified breadandbutter. But I can smell it already. I was going to include a link, but her site is down. You're probably better off.

    I hope that where you live you'll be feeling the zip of fall air very soon. I'll be here waiting...

    This is just too good.

    From the administration that brought you "man-caused disaster" and "overseas contingency operation," another terminology change is in the pipeline.

    The White House wants the public to start using the term "global climate disruption" in place of "global warming" -- fearing the latter term oversimplifies the problem and makes it sound less dangerous than it really is.

    Joe Wilson was right.
    Should we have been so rough on a lack of decorum and so easy on outright deceit?

    It was a year ago this month that President Barack Obama stood before a joint session of Congress to confront accusations that his health care overhaul would be a national disaster, raising costs for everyone and putting Medicare at risk.

    "Bogus claims," said the president.

    "You lie!" shouted Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C., from the gallery, in a break from decorum that was roundly and rightly chastised.

    A year later, we know that Wilson was pretty much right -- Obama did trash the truth to make his health care train wreck seem as if it sprung from the Big Rock Candy Mountain. The president, who told Congress and the American people his bill would, "slow the growth of health care costs for our families, our businesses, and our government," now admits this isn't true.

    "As a consequence of us getting 30 million additional people health care, at the margins that's going to increase our costs -- we knew that," Obama said last week.

    Of course he knew, but he wasn't saying so as he lobbied for the bill's passage.

    To quote another High Priest of the Left, "America's chickens....coming home to roost." Elections have consequences.

    Read the rest here:

    27 days from now, CJ will be married and she and Tony will start their new life together in Oklahoma...and the population at Granny's House will decrease by one. Half of me is so excited I can't stand it, and the other half wants to pour molasses on the calendar to slow down the passing of days...

    I know the next weddings will be here in an instant, so I'm trying to freeze some of these moments in time so they won't all be running together in my memory book. Where do the days go?

    The polls ahead of the November election are beginning to look intoxicating and I'm trying not to hyperventilate. I'm hoping and praying that voter enthusiasm hasn't peaked too early.

    REGISTER TO VOTE! TOMORROW!! Don't let your voice go unheard on November 2.

    Oh, how I'm longing to feel the first zingy-crisp breeze of fall. I know, that's still two months away, but I'm waiting....

    Our new landscaping is looking great and is going to be a nice frame for the wedding! Lots of wedding tasks to do this week, including finding a new pianist. Nothing is ever as smooth as it seems it's going be.

    The upcoming departure of daughter #4, who has really been the primary caretaker of my kitchen during my years of immobility, is taking some of HER things with her (I know, the nerve, right?)--things I need to replace so we won't have holes in our kitchen. This week I bought a rolling kitchen island to replace the storage cart of CJ's that I've enjoyed using for the past few years. Now if I can just get The Papa to get it out of the box and put together!

    Nathan did his first weekend of Air National Guard service and came home this afternoon tired as a dog but loving it. He is still waiting for a Basic Training date but it's look like he'll go right before Christmas and be away from us for the holidays. Much as I hate that part, I'm thrilled that things are moving for him!

    I'm going into the new school week feeling terribly unprepared both on paper and emotionally. The weekend has been a nightmare and I've just begun to feel the soothing balm of God's grace fall around me. Unfortunately it comes a little too late to completely save our Monday. But then again, He is never late.

    Have I told you that The Papa and I are going on a honeymoon after the wedding? Yep, our favorite Pacific island :-)

    For my sweet daughter tonight (you know who you are):

    When the valley is deep
    When the mountain is steep
    When the body is weary
    When we stumble and fall

    When the choices are hard
    When we're battered and scarred
    When we've spent our resources
    When we've given our all

    In Jesus' name, we press on
    In Jesus' name, we press on
    Dear Lord, with the prize
    Clear before our eyes
    We find the strength to press on

    If you are trying to inculcate good study habits in your children, or if you're simply engrossed with how the learning brain operates, or as in my case, both, you need to read this.

    For one thing, it will make you feel better about what you always knew about studying but your mom and the experts told you otherwise. They said study in the same place all the time, minimize distractions, etc. But you instinctively knew you studied best to music, lying on the floor while snacking.

    For another thing, it helps to debunk what I've thought for a long time--that all the hoopla about different learning styles is way overdone and really has no basis in scientific research.

    One of the reasons I've doubted it is because of my own personal brain quirks. I've always thought of myself as a visual learner, but there are whole areas where I don't learn visually. You've heard people say, "I can't remember names, but I never forget a face"? Well I'm the opposite. I remember the names but I can meet you today and not remember your face the day after tomorrow. I used to think of that as a moral failing, but I've learned that it's just the way my brain works (or doesn't). To make it even more confusing, I can probably identify by face on TV 90 out of 100 U.S. senators, and maybe 30% of U.S. representatives. I can hear the voices of most of them without looking at their faces and tell you who they are. If I don't know their names after hearing their voices, I can probably at least tell you their party affiliation. Isn't that weird? And yet let me meet one of The Papa's co-workers at a Christmas party and then run into him at the grocery store later in the week, and I won't think I've ever met him.

    Learning styles are neither as set nor as universal as the past generation of experts has led us to believe. Some kids learn math best visually and literature aurally. Some kids learn science kinesthetically but a hands-on treatment won't help them learn history. And some of us learn best visually at one point in our lives and aurally in another. Moreover, I believe after working with quite a few children that just because they've been tagged as a visual learner doesn't mean you need to use a curriculum with them that is predominantly visual. That may even stunt their growth in other areas by helping them to believe they can only learn one way.

    Lecture over. Read this and see what you think.

    Granny's Mission Statement
    "...Tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the LORD, and his might, and the wonders that he has done....that the generation to come might know, even the children yet to be born, that they may arise and tell them to their children."
    ~Psalm 78:4-6

    My Focal Passage for 2011...
    Philippians 2:5-11

    5 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus,

    6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped,

    7 but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.

    8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

    9 Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name,

    10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

    11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

    ~Philippians 2:5-11 (ESV)


    "The vanity of being known to be trusted with a secret is generally one of the chief motives to disclose it."

    Grace Notes

    "Were the whole realm of nature mine
    That were a present far too small...
    Love so amazing, so divine
    Demands my soul, my life,
    my all!"
