New Definition of Insanity

The best guide to homeschooling that I own is the book The Well-Trained Mind by Jessie Wise and Susan Wise Bauer. My kids have heard me talk about the book to others and have seen the book around the house. This week for history we have been reading the chapter about "The First Russians" in The Story of the World. Part of the chapter tells about Ivan the Terrible going mad. Matthew told me with a chuckle that Ivan had "well-trained mind problems".
