A little homeschool fun

Saturday, August 11, 2012

As August is here, like me, alot of you are getting ready (if you haven't already) to start the new school year.

I ran across this poem and thought it was a keeper. Maybe it will make you laugh a little bit too. Hope you enjoy.

Once in a home not so far away,
The school year began on a sunny, bright day.
The children were sleeping in cool, comfy beds.
While visions of summer danced in their heads.
And I in my bathrobe and tumbleweed hair
Oozed out of bed to try to prepare
For English and science and algebra, too,
Geography, history---to just name a few.
When what to my slumbering eyes should appear
But a reflection of something quite strange in the mirror.
I looked and discovered what could not be hid,
And he's homeschooling my kids!

P.S. Just a quick note. I read in a Reader's Digest issue that there are 940 Saturdays from the time your child is born til the time they turn 18. - Just a little food for thought.

    Speaking of Saturdays, have you ever read the Melendy Quartet? I would highly recommend this series!

    Love the poem and support homeschooling 100%. This from one who has worked within the public education system for over 14 years. You rock!! Oh...and enjoy each & every one of those 940 Saturdays, because they're all gone in the blink of an eye. Kids grow up & leave home so fast. emoticon
