I love the idea of demonstrating absurdity with absurdity! I think I only had one child at the time, and number two was on the way, but I had already taught more than 200 homeschooled children, and discovered it was true.... these students, ages 3 to 18, were all VERY different from the students I had been teaching in the public school for years, so finding this website hit my funny-happy-sweet spot JUST right.

And now, she has weighed in with her opinion of SiSi! So, if you'd like to find out her take on it, check it out:
