    Default You Know Your'e a Homeschooler When

    This has probably been posted before

    You come to school in your PJ's.

    Your biology lab consists of assisting in your sibling's birth.

    Your stacks of books to check out is taller than
    the librarian.

    Your PE comes from chasing little toddlers around.

    Your school bus is a 9 passenger van.

    You consider school work after lunch to be cruel and unusual punishment.

    Your father has ever told the check-out lady at Wal-mart, "We're on a field trip."

    Your social life is viewed by some to be one rung lower than that of a Benedictine monk.

    Your teacher has ever written your report card on a napkin.

    You have to move dirty laundry off your desk before your can start school.

    The signatures on your diploma all end with the same last name.

    Everyone else in the world is referred to as "Non-homies."

    Your Mother's wardrobe consists primarily of denim jumpers.

    Your first real date is on your honeymoon.

    The word 'homework' sounds like an foreign language.

    Your yearbook is also your babybook.

    A snow day means that you shovel the driveway after you finish your school work.

    You enjoy the pastime of watching public school kids walk home from school.

    You have to look at the clock to see if you can call your public school friends yet.

    You think that public-school-kid is an insult of the highest degree.

    Health class consists of eating breakfast.

    You have to decide what year you want to graduate.

    You are always late but just call it "homeschooler time."

    You can remember nearly every single day you went to public school.

    The teacher can kiss the principal, and no one thinks it's unusual.

    You get to school and the teacher asks you if you've done all your chores.

    Your friends talk about waiting in line for seven hours to try out the new roller coaster in town, so you go and wait five minutes on a school day.

    We can relate to alot of these. Especially, the stack of library books, and suddenly discovering that it is the time of day when their ps friends will be home.

    Usually, my kids are engrossed in a project or reading, the doorbell will ring, and they will then realize what time of day it is!

    HS time.....well we are never late. We are known to be early birds because I have a thing about this. So does my dh! But........the other day at sports club the instructor came over and asked if any of the group of moms had a watch.

    Not one of us was wearing a watch. LOL I guess we don't need a watch during the day. Then, she said who has their cell phone. We all whipped out our cell phones (have to keep in touch with daddy as we go exploring and discovering during the day), and we were all able to tell her the time!

    We all laughed about that!

    Public school isn't an insult to us, either. Our mantra is every family chooses to do what they feel best for their family!

    I love home learning!

    I like this!!!!

    Here are a few more:

    Your librarian has her own ILL (InterLibrary Loan file) for you and you max out your allowable ILL's ever month.

    Your anatomy class includes looking at the knee joint of a deer that someone shot the week before.

    You ask your local butcher if you can get some cow eyeballs to disect and he says you can have them all!

    You buy Owl Pellets off of ebay or you know someone who sells them on ebay.

    "Home Economics" is everyday real life for you...you know how to do the laundry, clean the kitchen, cook the meals and do basic household repairs. Your mom just calls it part of being a family.

    For "applied math" your mom has you figure out the price per ounce on different products and see which one is the better deal.

    You can have a cat on your lap in class!

    You can study things you are interested in in great depth thus the computer parts all over your room, the shelf full of books on horticulture, and musical instruments all over the house.

    You can take "prayer breaks" when the day is not going well.

    Skiing and rollerblading count as P.E.

    Your Mom can turn anything into an educational field trip.

    I love this.

    And another one - you can take a day off whenever you want just to enjoy being homeschooled.
