Why Do They Call it Homeschooling When I am NEVER at Home?

Friday Fun

Today is all about Homeschooling.

This showed up in my email this morning, and inspired me

A Homeschool Family

And this is NOT what it is... (NSFK, just a couple words here and there, but I had to include it anyway)

Q:How Does a Homeschool Mom change a light bulb?

First, mom checks three books on electricity out of the library, then the kids make models of light bulbs, read a biography of Thomas Edison and do a skit based on his life.
Next, everyone studies the history of lighting methods, wrapping up with dipping their own candles.
Next, everyone takes a trip to the store where they compare types of light bulbs as well as prices and figure out how much change they'll get if they buy two bulbs for $1.99 and pay with a five dollar bill.
On the way home, a discussion develops over the history of money and also Abraham Lincoln, as his picture is on the five dollar bill.
Finally, after building a homemade ladder out of branches dragged from the woods, the light bulb is installed.
And there is light.

T, who says sometimes you laugh to keep from crying
