Going Back to School

My article, Going Back to School With My Kids, was featured in the Old Schoolhouse Magazine this month. You can read it for free online.

This is the last article I have written for this magazine. I have one more article coming out in December for another magazine; then I am taking a writing break. With some much of my time devoted to teaching at Cornerstone, I just can't find the time to write. Once I get my curriculum "perfected," I'll start writing for publication again.

Review of The Elegant Solution by Paul Robertson

I love math and thought it would be fun to read a historical mystery set during the time of the Bernoulli family, so I requested The Elegant Solution by Paul Robertson to review. It came in the mail yesterday; and, as soon as I brought it in the house, I sat down and began to read.

Now the sad part. After reading and re-reading the first chapter several times, I skipped forward through the next several chapters to see if I could get more interested a bit further in. I couldn't. No matter what I tried, I just could not get interested in this book.

Although I rarely give up on a book I have agreed to review, I just couldn’t force myself to try with this one any longer. I really wanted to like it, but it is definitely not what I was looking for. For the author's sake, I hope that others will enjoy it more.
