Booklover met a girl at the local McDonalds the other day. The other girl asked Booklover where she goes to school, and of course, Booklover replied that she homeschools. To my gratifaction, the other girl said, "Oh, you are soooo lucky!!!" That is the sort of thing that does good to the heart of a homeschooling mom. If all those ps kids that Booklover meets said things like, "Oh, I feel sorry for you," or "Ew! I couldn't STAND to be home all day," then my daughter might begin to feel like she is being denied the better things in life. (But we know she isn't.) Booklover said, "Mom, They probably think homeschooling means we don't have to do any school work!" Well, just so that you can see we DO work here, I am posting this photo as evidence.
See? We do study. Here the girls are avidly studying one of the planets. Or is it a bug on the wall? Or maybe they are noticing the effects of thumbtacks on pre-fab walls. Well, I don't know what they are looking at, but it sure looks like studying to me!
