by Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy

The Tuohy family is such an inspiration. This book was very hard to put down. I spent a few late nights early mornings reading this book!

 A guilty pleasure! Those fries are amazing! Pour some malt vinegar on those babies and its all over! 

One of the best ideas to come around in a long time

Why must a good education come down to winning a lottery?


  1. I really enjoyed that clip on education...honestly I don't think it ONLY comes down to a lottery. Although I think that is ridiculous. What is good? I don't know. I think the system is bad because of teachers who don't care and kids who are more worried about social stuff than academic...homeschooling is ALWAYS an option. We made it work, although my husband and I both work...are are homeschooling. And the state is paying for it. Yep. Our tax $ going for the OHVA curriculum and we use it to homeschool, so if there's something we don't like, we skip it...and weave our religious beliefs into what we think is appropriate. Schools often PUSH the kids too much, tests and stress, when they would enjoy it much more if they could do it without pressure. I think the most important thing is to instill a LOVE of learning in children.

  2. WOW I am looking forward to seeing this. I got goose bumps. Makes you want to home school your children.

  3. Hurray for Homeschooling and teachers and parents who go the extra mile!
