I'm glad you mentioned it because this is one major concern I have about Joy homeschooling. The other concern is what if the child has learning differences? Having been in education most of my adult life, I know we have been trained on what to look for and there's a whole process for students who are struggling in the classroom. Usually their struggles are taken to a special team the child is brainstormed about with different interventions that hopefully will help and then if they don't many districts start the testing for special ed process. In no way am I diagnosing any child of any fundies we talk about. However based on the number of children they have I would bet that there are some who would really benefit from special ed services.

If you're only schooling was a very poor School of the dining room table experience, you may not know that it is not normal to introduce multiplication when a child is 13 because they have just mastered addition and subtraction.

Joy has already taken Gideon for a full developmental and educational assessment at some specialized center. She was concerned about his speech and progress. She did that before he was 4.  Sadly, between losing her second baby, and Evelyn having a skull condition that needed to be monitored — Joy is seeming very comfortable with consulting experts.

That was SUCH a cringe worthy episode. IIRC the family was putting together some elaborate meal and entertainment for JB and Michelle’s anniversary. It was when they were desperately trying to push Joy as being one of the “big girls” and portraying her as being in charge and capable with wrangling groups of little kids. Clearly this was NOT her usual gig.  Poor kid. It’s like a tv show that tries to introduce new characters, or replace an actor. “ Oops-those grown daughters are getting married- hey Joy, we’re switching you from the role of scrappy tomboy to Sister Mom 2. Put on some make-up, brush your hair and come yell at a bunch of toddlers” 

Ah, yes. “Jumping the shark.”

Joy and family are headed to TN for a wedding (presumably Trace and Lydia's). Trace was in Joe's wedding. Wonder if he's going too.

Joy's pregnant. Really surprised it took so long, but it's probably a good thing, intentional or not.

In the video she says they have been trying. I posted my baby name predictions.

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      Don't know I'd charge quite that much though.

      Long time no visit…
      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞

      Do I wear it?
      i was given a vintage, 70 year old mink coat. It fits like it was made for me. Somehow my cousin, who is 8 years older than me came into 3 gorgeous fur coats from a granddaughter of a woman her mother knew. We’re talking women who died in the mid 60’s.  None of them would fit her or any other of the women in my family. Yay for essentially being a ball. Everyone else is about 5’7 or more and all outweigh me by 50+. 
       
      it is just gorgeous. What women in Skokie and Highland Park many years ago, when I still lived there would call a “serviceable” fur. It was the fur they’d wear to a good restaurant, but not the opera or symphony.
      do I wear it? I’d love to, and I live in hunting country so fur isn’t looked down on. But is it wrong?  Arrrgh god its pretty.

      A modern day love story: Guy reaches out to you, you think he's cute so you start talking to him, give him your number. Guy then messages if you're free, you reply yes, guy never responds again. Love that. 👌
