Random Bates Facts


Happy Sunday! For your enjoyment, we have a few random Bates facts to share with you this afternoon...
  • The Bates just started their homeschooling year, so their lives have suddenly become much busier. They primarily use A Beka Book, which, according to Kelly Bates, stays close to the public school schedule and produces high standardized test scores.
  • Trace Bates hopes to audition to be a trick rider at the Dixie Stampede very soon. How exciting is that?
  • Three-week-old Brooklyn Paine is doing very well, as are the rest of the Paines. Erin still teaches piano lessons out of her home, and Katie usually comes over to babysit Carson and Brooklyn. Erin and Chad are in the process of starting a furniture business, which they will call Cherin's.

  2. As an educator I'm glad Kelly is using something that promotes high test scores. I know test scores are not everything but they are very indicative of the child's understanding of key concepts. I have seen many homeschool programs where the math programs are below par. It's good to know that Kelly and Gil have done their homework on what to use.

  4. Awesome,I am truly Blessed by ur show ut actually makes me get tears in my eyes because I have no family. I mean I never ever see them ever ,and family is so important. I have learned to lean on Jesus in my daily walks. My family never calls ,or visits I believe God will bring them around one day though. I am blessed by your show ,and would love to drive to Tennessee to attend the service. I live in Cary, N.C. Thank u all so much for show and sharing love of God and what family represents. Love in Jesus,Susan

  6. If any of the kids wanted to go to a college other than Crown, would Kelly and Gil allow that? I know they didn't go to Crown.
