I can’t help it. I totally love that video. And yes, I may be swayed by the fact that that’s my hilarious son there, sprinting at 11 mph. And the video was directed by my hilarious brother and filmed by my hilarious cousin. And the randomness of the idea was spawned by my hilarious husband who actually did pull our car over on the side of the highway once and embarrass the dickens out of me by sprinting in his work clothes at a speed radar sign to see if it would actually work. And it did. And years later, we have this.
But that’s not the point. The point is that you should all definitely go check out the Logos Press website – especially if you’re homeschooling. They have some really, really exciting things happening and some terrific resources for next school year. They’re offering curriculum, online classes, weekly seminars etc. As a matter of fact, I am going to be teaching an online Brit Lit class – essentially the same exact class that I teach to the Logos seniors. If you look closely at the fine print, you will notice that this class will take place every morning at 9:00 am eastern time. We should stop, drop, and observe that this translates to 6:00 am Pacific time (my own personal time zone) which in turn translates to me teaching a lucky group of high school kids whilst I still have pillow creases on my face. So there’s that added incentive. Perhaps my webcam has some kind of airbrushing / hair-fixing filter on it.
At a more sane hour of the day I’ll also be doing a weekly fabric and fashion design seminar. That should be a lot of fun – and it should be noted that the seminars are not just for high school students. Anyone can sign up for these. My mom is going to be doing one on Biblical Femininity which you should definitely take because it will be awesome. In fact, you should just go and browse the entire seminar page because even if you’re not homeschooling there are plenty of things to be interested in there.
