Top 10 Reasons to Homeschool Your Kids

10. You can wake up whenever you want.

9. Wal-Mart, Target, and the grocery store count as field trips.

8. Corporal punishment is permissible.

7. Home Economics starts in Kindergarten.

6. P.E. is running to get the mail.

5. It's fun to raise the heckles of retired teachers in the neighborhood.

4. You can flirt with the principal and not get sued.

3. Ketchup can be served as a veggie and jelly as a fruit and the USDA will not come after you.

2. You don't have to make friends at playdates with moms you wouldn't otherwise make friends with because...your kids don't have any friends.

1. Your kids get to learn all the things you didn't in public school.


  1. I don't know how you do it... summer all year you have to figure out stuff to teach all of them! LOL. Do you have a whole network of home schooled kids they hang out with?

    Well, Hooked on Phonics has done wonders for jack. He's totally reading now. Though he would probably prefer to be homeschooled.

    How's little Jane doing?!

  2. I really enjoy homeschooling the kids. They seem to enjoy it, too. We have quite a few homeschoolers around us and nationally the number of homeschooled children is growing at leaps and bounds. We weren't able to get into a homeschool coop this semester, but we are set to start next semester. This will open up the kids sphere of friends even more. For now, they enjoy each other.:) I enjoy what we get to learn together. Their whole world is about learning and doesn't just stop when the school day ends. We learn poetry at dinner, read scattered all throughout the day, and listen to history in the car. These are just ways that we fit it all in and still stay active in other areas of our lives. I'm glad to hear Jack is reading. It's so fun when they can read because then a whole other world of literature opens up to them. I actually don't have to figure out anything to teach them. I use The Well Trained Mind as my guide for our curriculum so all I have to do is purchase what we need.

    Jane is 4 months now and is growing rapidly. She's a great eater and is very lively. She sleeps for two hours in the morning, takes an afternoon nap, and sleeps about 5-6 hours at night so I can't complain.:)

    This is a lot better year for all of us since I'm not pregnant. I have so much more energy and don't need afternoon naps like I did.

    All in all, we try to be flexible and enjoy each other while we learn. Thanks for asking.:)


We love comments! Thanks for keeping up the conversation.
