Overheard: The Homeschooling Edition

You might be a homeschooler if:

...You are 13, it's Saturday morning, and your mother says, "You know that science test I forgot about before we left for Athens yesterday? Get ready for have thirty minutes." And you don't even protest.

...You are 8, you're doing a worksheet, and you ask your mother, "What's with this 'Wackyville'?" She explains that it's just a city name that was made up for the worksheet, and you say, "Well, I'm changin' it." And your mother isn't surprised to see that you've changed the name to "Tenese" [Tennessee].

...You are 4, you are clutching the workbook you would love to work from all day long (the very same one your brothers wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole) and sigh sadly as you tell your mother, "I'm just no good at writing letters."

...You are the mother, and you are looking forward to having next week off from school just as much as your children. ;)
