A while ago, I came up with a zombie apocalypse nursery rhyme. (Yes, I posted it on ICoS. Because of course I did.) What if you came up with some apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic nursery rhymes, and I compiled them? I think that would be fun; I can turn it into a PDF and send it to everyone who wrote a nursery rhyme. What do you think?
To get your creative juices flowing, here’s mine:
We all know that training is important when it comes to post-apocalyptic survival. After all, everybody talks about it. There are prepper and survival books, online groups, websites, blah blah blah. Basically, it’s just a good thing to be prepared. For, you know, the apocalypse.
As much as I like reading, there are just some things I like to learn (and do) in person. Or at least in an environment where someone can teach me how to do things properly. Because “proper” is a good thing, especially when learning how to use swords. And other sharp pointy objects. You know.
It’s a good thing there are actually classes I can take for apocalypse prep. (I know, right?)
There’s all sorts of emphasis on hand to hand combat, how to shoot guns, sword fighting, how to aim for a zombie’s head, etc etc when thinking about post-apocalyptic defensive skills you’ll need.
That’s all well and good — and I’m not saying you won’t need those skills, because you will — but I’m more of an “AH RUN AWAY!” kind of girl. Seriously, when that fight or flight kicks in, my entire body screams “RUUUUNNNN!!!!!” like a little girl. It does not usually say, “Oh hells yeah, LET’S KICK SOME ASS!”
Well, unless someone’s threatening my kids. But then I go all Mama Bear on them and my body says something unintelligible. You know how it is. I’m sure you get that same reaction when someone threatens your kids, your dog, your Xbox, or your extra large latte at 7:00 in the morning.
I know I mentioned a little while ago that I might be taking a zombie apocalypse parenting class at a local baby store. And guess what–I’ll be sitting in on the class! I won’t be able to go to tonight’s class, but I will be able to go to the next one. (And yeah, I’m not gonna lie, I’m pretty excited.)
I’m also going to be interviewing the store’s owner, Lindsay. So if there are any questions YOU want to know about zombie apocalypse parenting, the actual class itself, or her store, let me know so I can add it to my list of questions. I’m hoping to send her the questions no later than next week, so make sure you get your questions to me before then!

I’m new to this homeschooling thing. (This probably isn’t news.) Before I started down the homeschool path, I did research. Oodles of research. I mean, sure, I got a teaching degree and all that, but based on my studies, I know that there’s actually quite a bit of theory and thought behind teaching and the education process.
Which you’d never know sometimes, when you look at some teachers and classrooms.
There are an equal amount of theories for homeschooling. Who knew, right?
While going through the books, articles, and other materials, I learned that there are homeschooling “styles.” I saw this and thought, ”I have to find my own homeschooling style?” Dude. I don’t even have my own fashion style, and I’ve been wearing clothes for over thirty years.
