I took this quiz a looooong time ago (Jan 2006!) and it was buried in my "drafts". I figure I'll share it with you today so I can spend the rest of the day getting school done! Yesterday we ROCK-'N-ROLLED and got almost everything on our list crossed off. Even the chore charts were checked off by the time Daddy got home. The kids were soooo proud of themselves. Daddy gave them each a dollar when he got home as allowance for getting their studies and chores completed and I took them out to eat last night.
We started a new schedule and tracking method for school at home and it has been really doing well! I'm planning to share about it later this week. Hopefully I will also be adding another year of records to my homeschool series this week as well. I am working on creating a spreadsheet and getting the information ready to post today in-between assignments with the kiddos. Plus, I am reading an excellent book by the Eides (Founders of the Eide Neurolearning Clinic) and am excited to bring you a book review by next week some time. If you just can't wait and want to read it yourself, you can find it at Amazon here: "The Mislabeled Child".
Those are the three things I have on the back-burners right now... and hopefully I can get them cooked up and ready for you to read soon.
Speaking of cooking... be sure to check over at my Gathering Manna blog for some of the recent health advice and recipes that I've been posting. I tend to neglect that blog a bit, but I've been fairly decent at getting a few things a week posted for the past month over there. You can also search for past recipes by ingredient or key-word via the Blogger box up in the top left, or the Technorati box in the bottom right.
OH... and be sure to visit the Carnival of Homeschooling this week as there were over 40 homeschool blogs participating in this week's line-up.
As for the quiz below... It won't make much sense if you haven't seen "Sense and Sensibility". There is more than one movie version of this classic book, in case you enjoy family-friendly films as much as we do around here. I have always thought of myself as Marianne Dashwood in this story. I guess Jesus really does change people. I was most certainly more like her as a young girl, and even into my teens. I often act much like her even now... but with it, there is a bit of the responsible and sensible that only God could have imparted.
How about you - do you love Sense & Sensibility? What character were you?
You scored as Elinor Dashwood. You're Elinor Dashwood, the "sense" of Sense & Sensibility! You tend to hide your emotions, but you feel deeply. You also feel obligated to carry the burden of keeping everyone in your family under control.
Which Jane Austen heroine are you?
