HOME SCHOOL

SO...some may know that I pulled Izayah out of school this year (7th grade-age 13 now) and I began a home school curriculum. I was a little scared in the beginning but I did my research...I found the curriculum that was awesome for his age(Switched On Schoolhouse by Alpha Omega)
and we made it work.

I pulled him out for several reasons. I researched and found that in the public school system only 2, yes I will say it again, TWO!! hours of schooling a day is devoted to curriculum. The rest is standing in line, changing classes, waiting for the teacher to get everyone's attention etc...

so, i figured that I have 2 hours plus of training in me daily...and it worked

for all of you (AND YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE) that decided, before giving me a chance to try this endeavor, not realizing that criticizing my decision will only make me work harder (as I have always been adverse to other's blind opinions about my children-knowing in my heart that I try whole-heartedly to make decisions to help, not hinder, my children), I will now list Izayah's overall scores...(insert a tongue stuck between my pursed lips and a big raspberry being blown)...

without further anticipation...

Heh, I am pleased to announce...

Izayah, only in the 7th grade, scored 85% better than 7th grader's his age and in 7th grade...his scores were comparable to those in the 9th grade, 2nd month!!!!

woo hoo!!!

I have no regrets. NONE!

Zarian, now age 5 will be starting kindergarten-AT HOME-for various reasons (one being that he is not immunized to the school boards standards) and I will continue to pour every ounce of blood, sweat and tears into my baby, along with the proper curriculum or unschooling approach of course, that I have in me. You must know that I am not making this decision to harm or hinder him, only to help and guide him appropriately.

Those of you that believe in me, prayers are welcome!

Big props and dap to Zay for working so hard this year!!

Outlawing Homebirth? Stripping our rights? What will they think of next?

Have you gotten the opportunity to watch the Rikki Lake documentary called "The Business of being born (BOBB)" yet? Please do so as soon as possible-such an awesome movie!!

So...apparantly the AMA joined in the uproar of the ACOG (possibly from the attention that BOBB recieved from pregnant consumers) and are trying to ban our Constitutional rights to give birth how and when and where we please-excuse me-with NOOOOOO research, statistics, for the safety of women and babies or medical basis listed in their resolutions.

Are they scared for their jobs? Hmmmmmmm...

Are they wanting to incarcerate mothers that give birth at home? Hmmmmmmm...

It won't stand if we "push back" see this campaign to advocate for regulation and licensure of Certified Professional Midwives (CPMs) in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, and to PUSH BACK against the attempts of the AMA deny American families access to safe and legal midwifery care
AT THIS SITE

Read this email that I received from a friend AND PLEASE TAKE TIME TO SIGN THE PETITION
Dear Friends,

Resolutions were recently introduced by the AMA to support ACOG's position against home birth and to "develop model legislation in support of the concept that the safest setting for labor, delivery, and the immediate post-partum period is in the hospital, or a birthing center within a hospital complex, that meets standards jointly outlined by the AAP and ACOG, or in a freestanding birthing center that meets the standards of the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, The Joint Commission, or the American Association of Birth Centers."

Please help send a message to the AMA and ACOG, and to our state and federal legislators, to tell them that we object to these resolutions and we view legislation that would restrict a woman's right to choose a home birth as a being contrary to scientific evidence and a violation of women's basic human rights.

Thank you.



HOME AND BIRTH- 2 WORDS THAT I LOVE TO HEAR- MAKES ME SUPA HAPPY!!!!

To me there is NO OTHER CHOICE IN THIS country for a peaceful, safe birth besides my own home.

see-
Quote found in my sidebar-

JUST THINKING...

There are more than 40 countries where it is safer to be born than in the US**The World Fact Book Updated July 2006https://www.cia.gov/cia/publications/factbook/rankorder/2091rank.html


LET’S GET EDUCATED IT’S TIME TO MAKE DECISIONS LET’S WORK TOGETHER TO CREATE CHANGE


AS RESEARCH SHOWS IT IS SAFER OR AS SAFE TO BIRTH @ HOME AND THE C-SECTION RISE IS UP TO 30-35%...

WHAT ARE THEY THINKING??

Are mothers and babies in their best interest or is money and power their resolution?

Are they trying to make home birth go underground all over the country, as it is already in many states? Where is the safety in that?

Sneaking, stress, penalties for midwives, untold birth stories...how does that make birth safer for the mother and baby?

I for one will birth my babies according to my constitutional rights and...

Since when is Hospitalization TRADITIONAL and home birth the ALTERNATIVE? I think this country has confused these two words in many areas of life.

GREEN OUR VACCINES!!!...OR SIMPLY JUST DON'T IMMUNIZE


Every wonder what is in that mysterious vaccine? Wonder why you just don't feel good about getting those barbaric shots in your childs legs? What is the BIG DEAL that seems to be pushing immunizations into the media these days?


How about this one? ... WHY IN THE WORLD DOESN'T SHAWNA GIVE HER KIDS IMMUNIZATONS??????!!!!!????? Is she crazy, some hippy or totally bucking the system?


Well, maybe (hee hee) but I have OTHER reasons too: THE INGREDIENTS for one thing, not enough research, the rise in brain injured children, my own child that was brain injured and fought for healing for 5 years, the lining of the brain not fully developed @ birth, THE STATISTICS OF EFFECTIVENESS, the drug companies' agenda and profit and...DID I MENTION THE INGREDIENTS??


Go Here to See a Video with some mothers, fathers, children, grandparents, activists, concerned citizens and actors who came together in DC to rally for greener vaccinations...(note-you may need a tissue) o...I just checked this link and you may have to go on the right hand side of the page and click the picture of Jim Carey (the actor in a green shirt) to get it to play


AND PLEASE SEE THESE PICTURES FROM THE RALLY-READ THE SIGNS, READ THE INGREDIENTS, FEEL THE PAIN OF THE HUMAN RACE HERE... (on that link-go to "Green Vaccines"



Do some research, find out why they would actually put aborted fetal tissue, mercury and anti-freeze into our child's legs, 8 at a time at the age of 6 months?


Really, if a thermometer is dropped in science lab @ public school, the entire school is shut down because of the toxicity! But yet injecting that same mercury into newborn babies is supposed to be ignored?



Doesn't that make you wonder what the true agenda is? What are the reasons for putting that poison into our children? These kids are the same kids that will be taking care of this country in 20 years, taking care of us in 40 years, members of congress, presidents, lawmakers. Don't they deserve the rights to normal immunity, properly functioning nervous systems, clean water and food and perfect health?


PLEASE, Ask yourself those questions and be INFORMED CONSUMERS!


You can visit http://www.mothering.com/ or http://www.mercola.com/ or just google "vaccine" and get tons of info. Books galore are being written, have been written for 20 years and the libraries are filling the shelves with this important information...one that I particularly love is titled: "A Shot in the Dark" pretty distrurbing read but well worth the knowledge and power to make informed decisions on behalf of innocent children.



Be their voice, be their choice-they can't make decisions regarding their brains or nervous systems and entrust us as parents to make informed, loving decisions in their best interest...


GREEN VACCINES OR DON'T IMMUNIZE!!!

BEING BORN IS IMPORTANT!!

I just read a poem listed on a midwife's blog. She has a wonderful way with words...and the poem is touching.

Being Born Is Important

Being born is important

You who have stood at the bedpostsand seen a mother on her high harvest day,

the day of the most golden of harvest moons for her.

You who have seen the new wet childdried behind the ears,

swaddled in soft fresh garments,

pursing its lips and sending a groping mouthtoward the nipples where white milk is ready~

You who have seen this love's paydayof wild toil and sweet agonizing~

You know being born is important.You know nothing else was ever so important to you.

You understand the payday of love is so old,

So involved, so traced with the circles of the moon,

So cunning with the secrets of the salts of the blood~

It must be older than the moon, older than the salt.

~Carl Sandburg

Well now, I have chills and tears from reading this poem. I feel like it is not that unfamilar to me but somehow I don't remember how or when I read it but apparently it didn't touch me as much as it does right now.

What wonderful poetry and so lovely to come from a male's perspective...
