I loved what Sarah Palin had to say in her show, Sara Palin's Alaska, about having meat in your freezer. I am not ashamed anymore to say we have meat in our freezer! :) Here's the link to the clip from the show:

http://www.winterpromise.com/ high school edition of Quest for the Ancient World. We are also following Diana Waring's Ancient Civilizations cd's as well but found the book to be too hard to implement. It took us nearly two months to get through one unit because it lacked clear set daily goals for my kids. I like to see my lesson plans written out "Sonlight style", http://www.sonlight.com/ I call it and that's exactly what Winter Promise has done. It's so much like the user friendly Sonlight materials. I plan to use both throughout the coming years as the Lord provides the funding!
Yesterday I set up an archeological site survey in the back yard implenting the first activity in the Archeology for Kids http://www.amazon.com/Archaeology-Kids-Uncovering-Mysteries-Activities/dp/1556523955/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1288352096&sr=8-1
It went really well. It took a lot of work to map out the site of a 10 x 10 square. The boys decided they definitely did not want to be archeologists but they came away with a better understanding and appreciation of what archeologists actually do and why! http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.answersingenesis.org%2Farticles%2Fnab%2Fdoes-archaeology-support-the-bible&h=d5e09 Here is a great article about how archeologists help people BELIEVE the Bible as historical TRUTH.
