@FlamingFundie If homeschooling works for you and your kid that's great. But it's not tossing a kid to the wolves to enroll them in public school. As you said, it's the only real option for a lot

Meh, I went to public school and I loved it. Sometimes I was bored and sometimes I was challenged. That's life. But I'll go ahead and call my Mom up and chastise her for tossing me to the wolves

As much as Ben seems out of it, I hate to hear all the snark about 'toilet-cleaning' and menial jobs. A jobs a jobs and it seems kind of elitest to me. Just because he's a fundie doesn't mean a job li

I can't make heads nor tails of their traveling. I'm pretty sure the pictures I saw of the Duggars at Silver Dollar City on Wednesday morning included the brother holding Henry in that Magnolia market picture but I do tend to get the brothers confused.  Plus the person posting the pictures said all the Duggar grandchildren were there. Benessa and family weren't in the two quick shots she got so maybe she was wrong. If she was correct seems they wouldn't have been on their way home but on their way out? It wouldn't be that bad of a drive from their house to Waco. 

Maybe Waco is just a good place to refuel? I'd probably stop in Greenville or Tyler but maybe air traffic is less his time of year in Waco? 

If Jessa really likes the Chip and Jo style it would be cheaper and closer for her to just go to Canton. Waco is either on the way somewhere, for publicity, or both.

Out of interest do you pronounce Waco like Taco?

I have to admit until a few years ago, as a Brit, I thought that Arkansas was pronounced like it is written, it was only through watching 19kac that i realised 'arkensaw' was actually the same place as 'Arkansas' that I had seen on a map :tw_flushed:

@LKUK,  Arkansas is not only pronounced Ark kan saw, but also Ar -kansas.  The former is the correct pronunciation of the state while the latter is sometimes used for the river.  It depends on your locale.  People in Kansas and Colorado may say Ar -kansas.

Washington is pronounced exactly as it is spelled, which is something we have to remind those people who attempt to call us "WARSH-ington".

Snap!! I've still not figured out why the pronunciation and spelling are so different?

Many are based on Native American words or names. Sometimes we stuck with the NA word. Sometimes the word went from NA to anoher language or two on its way to its current incarnation. Sometimes it is a weird attempt at NA by nonnative speakers. I'm too lazy to look it up right now but since Kansas is a Native name I'm guessing Arkansas is somehow related to that like meaning the people of the Kansas tribe that live in the hills instead of plains or something.

26 states are named for Native American tribes or are words in a Native American language:

Arkansas comes from Acansa, the name of a Quapaw town. It means "southern place."

@VelociRapture I don't know how you know all this random stuff and are able to recall it.

When my eldest was 5 months old I was lucky to have a reasonably clean house, clothes washed and dinner on the table.

My sleep deprived brain could barely have me hold a conversation.  No way I could have recalled random stuff, let alone remember the stuff you do.

Google is very much my friend sometimes. Other times? Lots of reading and watching Jeopardy with my dad or husband pre-baby. 

I'm also very aware that we're fortunate to have a baby that sleeps pretty well. Took her a bit of time, but she's really gotten good at sleeping through the night. I'm still tired a lot, but I'm not ever going to complain because it could be way worse.

Fellow Brit (originally) here. - I know this dates me, but every mention of Waco still sends me to John Craven and Newsround.

Arkansas is a Native American word translated into French, then translated into English.  The French are to blame for the silent "S" at the end.  It's not unusual to have French-influenced pronounciations in the areas that were part of the Louisiana Purchase.

Is this at Magnolia Market in Waco? Don't these people ever work?

This is why it annoyed me so much that my teachers in France insisted I pronounce the S at the end of "Arkansas." We only have that spelling because of the French and now the French pronounce the S and we don't!

Mm, that may be an accent thing? I know my grandfather occasionally says that something needs to be "warshed."

That happens sometimes with New England accents (ie, Boston), too. As examples: boiling the water is sometimes pronounced as "burling the wahtah", or parking the car is sometimes known as "pahking the cahr".

I love when I speak with a customer on the phone & they have an accent; I try to guess (mentally) where they're from, & once in a while I'm right. ;)

      So excited, happy. Finally I got my vaccination appointment. The first on the 26th of May , the second on my birthday.  Staying at home is no option, because I work in healthcare, with very close patientcontact. (I make mammograms). Hopefully I can relax a bit more after my vaccination and let the anxiety go.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.
