You know you’re a homeschooler when…

I got this in my email this morning… Very funny!

You know your a homeschooler when…

. . . your kids are in the kiddie pool playing Lewis and Clark, paddling down the river with lacrosse sticks.

. . . you find yourself and your guests at your birthday party, at 10pm, embroiled in a lively discussion/explanation of the heart’s size and function…with your five year old, who just had to get out of bed and ask because she couldn’t sleep until she knew!

. . . people ask to borrow books from you because it’s closer than the library with almost as varied a collection.

. . . your son asks to listen to the Geography Songs CD every day at lunch.

. . . you can SING the countries of Africa! “Algeria, Ethiopia, Liberia . . .”

. . . you stop in the church parking lot to pick up a big Rhinoceros beetle. It is dead and actually smells a bit bad, but you lay it carefully in the back seat, because your kids have never seen one before, except for the one in “Bug’s Life.”

. . . you go to the greenhouse in the summer to buy herbs and start talking to the kids about the different kinds of plants . . . and then one of the workers asks if you work there!!!!

. . . you’re out with non-homeschooling friends and they expect you to know the answers to everything–like the difference between a vegetable and a fruit and whether certain things like cucumbers are veggies.

. . . your daughter’s dance bag has more books than dance shoes in it.

. . . you find yourself saying, “We were studying last week, about . . .” and people look at you funny, and you don’t know why.

. . . you don’t think about, but your friends are all talking about, school registration next year . . . or how many days until you go back to school.

. . . the doctor’s/dentist’s/hairdresser’s office is happy to schedule your child’s appointment because you don’t want one after 3pm or during a school holiday . . . or you can take advantage of off season rates because you make your own school holidays.

In His Grip,

Jonathan
