About Me

My photo
Married twenty-three years to my wonderful husband and best friend. We have 3 "home-grown" kids, 1 hand-picked by God from Africa and 1 very hyper-active dog. Our life is blessed. We are a close knit family with strong Christian beliefs. And just recently we have bought ourselves a farm. Do we know what we are doing? Nope. Come along with us on our journey…you might have a great laugh or two.

You know you're a home school mom when...

I love home schooling...everything about it. I came across this list on someones blog and I found it very funny. My kids laughed out loud at several of them. We hope you enjoy it too!

You Know You're A Home school Mom When...
-You get to change more than diapers, you get to change their minds.
-When a child busts a lip, and after seeing she's okay, you round up some scotch tape to capture some blood and look at it under the microscope!
-Your children never ever leave the "why?" stage.
-When your teenager decides to take one community college course, and comes home and asks you why the teacher wrote "At" on his paper. (A+)
-Your kids think reading history is best accomplished while lying on the floor with their head resting on the side of their patient dog.
-Your husband can walk in at the end of a long day and tell how the science experiment went just by looking at the house.
-You never have to drive your child's forgotten lunch to school.
-The only debate about the school lunch program is whose turn it is to cook.
-If your child gets drugs at school, it's probably Tylenol.
-Your neighbors think you are insane.
-You have meal worms growing in a container....on purpose.
-If you get caught talking to yourself, you can claim you're having a PTA meeting.
-You take off for a teacher in-service day because the principal needs clean underwear.
-You can't make it through a movie without pointing out the historical inaccuracies.
-If your child claims that the dog ate his homework, you can ask the dog.
-You can't make it through the grocery produce department without asking your preschooler the name and color of every vegetable.
-You can't put your produce in your cart without asking your older student to estimate it's weight and verify accuracy.
-You try to (quickly) capture the huge bee that was knocked unconscious as it accidentally flew into your car window, so the kids can classify and inspect it.
-The walls of your dining room are decorated with posters of the US Presidents, Periodic Table of Elements, Map of the Moon, Spanish Conjugation Chart and a copy of the Declaration of Independence, not to mention a poster of the Ten Commandments since no one can tell you not to!
-You have children draped all over the furniture....and they're reading...for the FUN of it!
-Your children actually enjoy spending time with their family, even their siblings!
-Your children aren't embarrassed to be seen playing with someone younger than they are!
-You are on a first name basis with the majority of local librarians.
-You've laughed out loud when someone asked you "What about socialization?"
