… and i've been eating everything in sight.  The other night I dreamed I was pregnant.  I guess Amy has been on my mind a little too much over the last few days (Congrats on your newest little nutpickle, Amy!)

Coie was
kind enough to finally come back from California.  The wedding she
went to was very sweet; it was fun hearing about it — it makes me more
than a little nervous that she has friends who are old enough to get
married.   I'm still thinking about starting a WebCourting
site.  Surely there must be a market for something like
that.  That way, in 27 years when we start thinking about husbands
for our older daughters, we'd have a nice pool to choose from.

    Hey, how about HSD?

    Home School Dating! Just kidding of course. It is a bit scary when they are getting old enough to be married. We just had a very long discussion on arranged marriages. We know some really great young men that we think would just be great sons-in-laws. Especially those with rich parents so we can be benefactors.

    Just kidding, there I go again! (which is why I am NOT signing my name to this.)

    Quit eating so much or I will have to post another baby name contest. Ooops, I think I gave my identity away. Since you know now, it would be nice if someone would post a comment on my Thursday front porch entry…..

    Homeschooling is Life!

    I would certainly sign my boys up for your WebCourting site! A year ago, I’m sure you thought HSB was a crazy idea and just look how much it’s grown!

    But remember, we don’t want it to be too successful…

    Mares Eat Oats and Does Eat Oats…

    Isn’t there a song that kind of goes like that? Marzy Dozy Dotes… or something like that? It was before my time, so I don’t really remember it. 🙂

    oh my, I can’t imagine my kids ever being old enough to go to their friends’ weddings! my oldest daughter is 7, so let me just start by stating right now that i will be prescreening applications for potential husbands sometime around, oh… the year 2142!

    scary that it somes up so quickly! but glad coie had a good time 🙂 she seems like a wonderful girl, a real credit to her mama 🙂

    Sign my kids up for that web courting! I’ll be ready for them to leave me and get married in about oh…20 years!

    Is there any way for me to get grandkids without them leaving me first?!

    There you go starting pregnancy rumors about yourself, again!

    Online courting, huh? You know, that *would* be interesting. Reminds me of the whole mail-order brides thing.

    Good Idea

    There’s a lot of merit in your Home school courting idea. My oldest met her man at a Christian university and we were blessed that he was home taught as well. They courted with very strict boundaries (I’m so proud of them can’t you tell) and have now been married a year with no regrets. We’ve considered for our other two but they have decided to trust God to bring the right man at the right time. We did sit down with our children and write a list of what they wanted in a mate (they had to put everything they could think of) They were 10 when we did this and we prayed regularly that God would send the right man. Our son-in-law met every requirement on the list. God never fails. The webcourting site would be a good way for the youngins all to meet and it makes it alot easier. Anyone know any 21 and 19 year old home schooled boys for my two daughters?

    Mary, Mary…

    I just read your comment on Gena’s blog. You’re such a contrarian!

    Even so, I like the idea of getting to know/getting together with other HSB families online and in person as our children get older and we scope out the prospects.

    Since King James is getting potty-trained, it must be time to think about another little prospect of your own, eh? Be careful what you dream, girl….

    Tonight's Chat

    Hi there,

    I’m just visiting all the Blubber Blogger’s Blogs and reminding them about the online chat tonight with Jeannie Fulbright. If you are interested, just make sure you have AOL Instant Messenger (you can download a free version on the AOL site) and email me you screen name so I can invite you to the chatroom (my email is Be sure to put CHAT in the subject line so I don’t miss you!

    If you have any questions for Jeannie, if you could send them to me ahead of time, it would help her be able to answer better, but you can ask questions tonight, too. I hope that you can make it 🙂 In case you missed it, Jeannie’s guest lecture is on our Blubber Blogger Blog.

    … and little lamzie divey! A kiddle dee divey two, wouldn’t you?

    Glad to see you youngsters born in the Nixon administration have gotten a proper music education!

    We won’t need one’a them newfangled online courtship services for Baby Bubble when she turns 30 in another 25 years! We’ll just find her a nice Eagle scout ourselves, from a wealthy Christian family, and who calls me “sir.” And after he posts a $250,000 bond and signs the prenuptial Vow of Celibacy, we can then discuss the wedding arrangements directly without all that courtship business.

    Online courting is already a happenin’ thing at our house, thanks to HSB. My teen daughter has been emailing & conversing via phone with a young gentleman who is also homeschooled. They “met” on each other’s blogs. The best part about it, from my perspective, is that he lives over 1500 miles away. 🙂

    Food Schmood . . . .

    All this talk about food . . . makes me hungry. Sheesh! Good thing I hate pickles LOL! See you in a week my dear – where we can eat to our heart’s content at FPEA! (Bahama Breeze is our fav restaurant there.) It will be practically my last real meal in this life so I plan to enjoy it. hehe

    Also, Tyler is now, ahem, eligible so get that service started. He’s already 18+ time’s a wastin’! For that matter so is JB but I’ll do you a favor and not sign him up — ROFL!

    Maggie* who loves the idea of lots of grandbabies hehehehe
