Homeschoolers are Unique... {and a Giveaway}

Homeschooling is the greatest show on earth.

We have very strict dress codes.

Integrating schoolwork into the day is a balancing act.

We learn about science by scaring the neighbors,

from Dads who drop watermelons
 and water balloons off the roof to demonstrate gravity.

We study nature up close.

We spend lots of time at the kitchen table,

where little brothers learn from big brothers.

We play with legos and call it science.

We keep weird things in jars

We learn from living books.

We are the rocket-scientists of tomorrow.

We take our pets to school with us.

Our classroom is air-conditioned.

We like to travel.

We aren't afraid to try new things.

We study history by going there.

We learn by doing.

We start reading at very young ages,

and we color-coordinate our outfits to our books.

We collaborate on projects.

We study architecture.

We learn by doing.

The world is our classroom.

Our brothers are out best friends.

Our time at home is time well-spent.

Since we're celebrating Not-Back-to-School, Home Educating Family has a giveaway for YOU!  Simply leave a comment on this post for a chance to win a Well-Planned Day Wall Calendar.  Winner will be randomly chosen and announced on next Friday's Not-Back-To-School post. 

Congrats to Tammy, who said:
I made it 6 weeks before I pulled my oldest out of public school and began this journey. That was 17 years ago. In only 7 more years I'll be eligible to retire with full benefits! Okay, so I won't have a pension or 401k but I'll have the benefit of believing that I followed God's plan for our lives.
