We're now officially launched into another year of this crazy-making adventure of home education.
Because you know what the best thing about homeschooling is? I'm with my kids all the time.
And, you know what the hardest thing about homeschooling is? I'm with my kids all the time. ;D
But what really just
On the one hand, you get people who expect homeschoolers to all be brainiacs, like the Colfax family, who homesteaded in California and worked so hard at it, that studying looked like a fun little hobby. Three of their four sons were accepted into Harvard and the fourth went to another Ivy League school.
Or, failing academic genius, homeschool kids should all be musical prodigies, right?
But on the other hand, other folks think homeschoolers are all weird, unsocialized geeks. (Because - you know - the public schools certainly don't have any weird, unsocialized geeks.)
And then there's the absolute classic, Tim Hawkins homeschool family. (Go watch it. You'll laugh. I'll wait.)
News flash: I don't own a denim jumper, I still only have three kids, and I don't grind my own wheat.
I guess some of us are destined to be average. How's that for a stereotype?
