10 minutes to the homeschool chat...

Welcome, homeschoolers and guests to the PTK Homeschool chat. We welcome
your comments about how you use the PTK Programs in your homes or
homeschooling groups with your children.

Don (TX, homeschool): . . . . Wed, Feb 12, 11:11AM PDT (-0800 GMT)
Hi Gayle, Sorry I haven't been able to stop in the past couple of weeks.
Work has gotten very busy. And now my prospects of being able to stay the
entire hour, in the future, don't look good.
My manager has set up a weekly meeting on Wednesdays at 1:30. So I will
probably only be able to hang around for a portion of the first half.

Don (TX, homeschool): . . . . Wed, Feb 12, 11:11AM PDT (-0800 GMT)
How have things been going for you?

Gayle Remisch - PTK Homeschool chat host: . . . . Wed, Feb 12, 11:14AM

Hi Don, it's been a while, good to have you back!

We've been quite involved with the LFA2 program. The kids love the
penguins!

Gayle Remisch - PTK Homeschool chat host: . . . . Wed, Feb 12, 11:16AM

We made penguins out of clear plastic pop bottles. We crumpled up scrap
white paper and stuffed the bottles, then I made a pattern to make the
black head, back and wings. I'll be putting the design on Aunt Annies
craft page soon.

I've been really busy with outreach advocating, going to promote the PTK
programs all over the place.

Gayle Remisch - PTK Homeschool chat host: . . . . Wed, Feb 12, 11:18AM

My sister-in-law homeschools and is interested in the programs so I'll
be visiting her to explain them to her group.

Gayle Remisch - PTK Homeschool chat host: . . . . Wed, Feb 12, 11:19AM

We have a whole slew of new homeschoolers whose kids are in the 9-14 age
range and this really peaks their interest.

Gayle Remisch - PTK Homeschool chat host: . . . . Wed, Feb 12, 11:20AM

I have and will continue to post the note about these chats on different
homeschool, home education e-mail lists so more people can find out about
them.

Don (TX, homeschool): . . . . Wed, Feb 12, 11:23AM PDT (-0800 GMT)
The network seems to be very busy. My browser keeps timing out. As for
LFA2, I haven't even had time to check out what is going on. As for MTO,
on our last meeting night, I tried to sidetrack and have a star/planet
observation night. (I wanted the kids to see Saturn before it gets harder
to observe.) The evening didn't go very well. Not enough crowd control.

Marc, if you're out there, could you please see that the word "master" is
removed from the blurb about this chat as it might tend to make
homeschoolers avoid this. Although I am flattered by it, it
really doesn't apply to me and I don't think I know of anyone in
homeschooling who it might apply to, except of course the heroes of
homeschooling, like the Moore's and Colfax's. And even then
they would never refer to themselves like that. Thanks again, but I think
it gives the wrong impression. Don't you agree, Don?

Don (TX, homeschool): . . . . Wed, Feb 12, 11:26AM PDT (-0800 GMT)
Sorry to have to write and run, but it's meeting time. I am very glad to
hear that your group is getting larger. It sounds to me like you have done
a great job in promoting it. Well, take care. Bye.

Gayle Remisch - PTK Homeschool chat host: . . . . Wed, Feb 12, 11:26AM

When you get a chance, Don, you must stop by the site and check it out.
The activities are wonderful.

Nice Chatting, Don, see you next time. If you can think of a better time
for these chats, just let me know, at womble@mail.wwdc.com. Bye for now.

Don (TX, homeschool): . . . . Wed, Feb 12, 11:29AM PDT (-0800 GMT)
One last message... I saw your note on "master." I have to agree. I just
completed a course on composting that is put on by the state. Upon
completing of it we were "given" master composter status. It sounds/feels
so awkward. So, I have to agree with you, Gayle. (Now I'm really going to
be late for my meeting...)

Gayle Remisch - PTK Homeschool chat host: . . . . Wed, Feb 12, 12:00AM

Thanks Don, It was great chatting with you, Take care and bye all!
