Thursday 13

I saw this meme and it spoke to me. Will it speak to you?

Make a list of 13 things you like about homeschooling:
  1. I see my kids for more than a couple hours a day
  2. I can celebrate their triumphs and help with their weaknesses
  3. I get to learn all kinds of new stuff.
  4. We stay in our PJ's as long as we want.
  5. Play dates that happen during the day so that night time is for family
  6. Seeing the love and respect my kids have for each other
  7. New books, new manipulatives
  8. Field trips!
  9. Co-ops and shared teaching
  10. Not being tied down to a schedule if something more fun turns up.
  11. Play dates that involve whole families so that no one is left out.
  12. Creative learning time (Mythbusters marathons count as school, hours spent arranging and decorating a doll house can count as school)
  13. Being with my kids!


  1. Those are really good reasons to enjoy home schooling, especially the valuable time you get to spend with your kids!

  2. It's great to spend time with your children and in lots of ways parents are the best teachers. Happy TT!

  3. I wasn't a homeschooler but I've been very impressed by the dedication of those who are. Great list.
